Mike Hollahan of Custom Stone Tile a flooring contractor from New Orleans, LA recently completed this 1,000 square foot resurfacing project using Param 5500 self leveling concrete over ceramic tile to create a polished concrete floors.

As you can see in the photos, the preexisting floor was porcelain tile. Removing the tile and rebuilding the floor is an expensive project. However, Param 5500 has some very unique features allowing for resurfacing over old tile.

Param 5500 Self Leveling Concrete Features

  1. Excellent Bonding over tile, carpet glue and concrete
  2. Non Shrink – Will not shrink and pull up tile.
  3. Quick Dry – Foot traffic within a few hours.
  4. Apply 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick.
  5. Durable – 5500 psi
  6. Decorative – unlimited color and seal options.

Mike Hollahan used our water based Deso Dyes to topically color the floor in natural earth tones. Deso Dyes come in a variety of colors. We have 20 base colors to choose with unlimited color schemes available by mixing or application in layers.

To seal the floor Mike Hollahan used Perdure E32, a water based epoxy with a final protective sealer called Perdure U46. This is a two component water based polyurethane providing a gloss finish. Perdure U46 is very durable finish coat and part of our floor sealing system. It has fast cure time and high abrasion resistance.
