PHASE 2 - Polish
The property requires to be at ‘lock up’, protected from the elements with all ceilings and walls completed. Various processes are undertaken to provide a suitable surface that will achieve the desired sheen at completion. Phase 2 will take approximately 3-4 days for a standard 3x2 house. Cabinet installation, skirting boards and final painting should be done after the floor is finished.
Polishing the floor of an existing building is a process which takes up to 4 days
