Working in conjunction with FBS Ltd; we can now offer this service to our customers at competitive rates. 

Polished concrete is fast becoming the ultimate no-wax flooring material. Thanks to recent advances in concrete polishing equipment and techniques, contractors are now grinding concrete floor surfaces, whether new or old, to a very high-gloss finish that never needs waxing or coatings that can peel or wear off. A Polished Concrete floor provides an extremely high quality durable finish similar in appearance to natural stones, such as marble, granite or terrazzo, but with a superior hardness and a resistance to traffic wear. Polished Concrete has become very popular in high traffic areas as it provides an easy maintenance surface. The superior durability and performance of polished concrete has been enjoyed in warehouse and industrial facilities, office facilities, restaurants, manufacturing facilities, automotive shops, garages, showroom floors and residential interiors throughout New Zealand, due to its low cost, high durability, long life, very high abrasion resistant nature and high gloss floor finishing.

Natural Stone Restoration and FBS Ltd; now offers a complex water proofing system for all concrete and masonry walls and floors. This high strength, fast setting water proofing system is specially designed to immediately arrest the seepage or flow of water through concrete joints, leaking cracks and holes. This water proofing treatment for concrete structures can be used to protect against the ingress of water to the inner or outer sides of a concrete structure. Krystol T1 & T2 system is a surface-applied crystalline waterproofing treatment for concrete structures that is used to protect against the ingress of water. It is a dry powder, that when mixed with water becomes a coating that is applied to the inner or outer sides of a concrete structure. This treatment reacts with un-hydrated cement particles to grow millions of needle-like crystals deep into the concrete mass. Over a period of weeks and months, these crystals grow, filling the naturally occurring pores and voids in concrete, and permanently blocking the pathways for water and waterborne contaminants. Later, if cracks form due to settling or shrinkage, incoming water triggers the crystallization process and additional crystals begin to grow, filling cracks and ensuring that the structure's waterproofing barrier is maintained and protected. The concrete itself becomes the waterproof layer and the surface treatment is not required to remain intact for the system to be effective.
