What is Pebble Flooring and how is it applied?
Pebble Flooring is a unseamed flooring system consisting of tumbled, pigmented or natural pebbles that are blended on site with specially developed resins and trowelled onto a solid concrete sub base by hand to a thickness of +- 6mm creating a smooth, seamless surface. Once this is cured, it is then given a top coat. NB : It is essential to prime the sub base first before any application, this allows for better adhesion of the pebble/resin blend.

Can it be laid over my existing floor?
Yes, provided your current floor has no movement or structural faults, Pebble Flooring can be applied over it. An applicator would be able to assess if your flooring surface is suitable. Pebble Flooring can also be laid directly over existing tiles or solid sub bases. We recommend only solid concrete floors for optimum bond between the primer and the substrate. Any other type of substrate must be tested by the applicator.
Would any repairs be visible?
Pebble Flooring can be repaired by an applicator. A bit of stock should be kept on site after application. Repairs done at a later stage may be visible but if properly done, will not be noticeable.
How do I clean my Pebble Flooring?
The Internal cleaning procedure is much the same as for a normal carpet with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner. A regular dry vacuum will remove dust and loose dirt particles. An occasional wet vacuum at least once a month will remove excess grim and stubborn dirt particles.
Externally the product simply cleans with a hose pipe and soft broom. An industrial vacuum clean once every 9-12 months is advised on external floors.
