Lead designer and concrete maker Isaac Tucker has over 10 years experience in luxury concrete creations, previously working for 5 years with Kayode Concrete before embarking on his own projects for clients.

He says, “I have made all kinds of polished concrete items, from my trademark kitchen countertops, through to whole kitchen installations, wet rooms, fireplace hearths, window sills, splash backs and even concrete bathtubs to outdoor furniture, pizza ovens and BBQs.”

2015 is proving a great year so far as our job “Roman Road Extension project” has been shortlisted into the finals of the 2015 RIBA AWARDS, in which I was

commissioned to do all the concrete work and consult with Studio Gil Architects on how to make the complicated designs a reality.

Floor treatments and Micro cement

Outside areas are difficult to carry out in the UK as the weather is crucial for a good result. Lately we had great weather to lay this little courtyard.

to create a beautiful hand troweled topping for surfaces like floors, bathrooms, wet rooms and furniture

for both indoor and out door areas.

It is particularly good for bathroom areas because of its waterproof qualities and flexible adhesion.

Micro cement can be applied to almost any substrate like existing concrete, tiles, ply wood, MDF and

wedi board. The application process is similar to Italian polished plaster where the hand trowl effects create

the unique patterns on the surface. Colour pigments can be added, I have available colour charts with all

colour options.

Application of micro cement:

1. The existing substrate is surveyed to insure accurate level for accurate application. Sometimes planing or further levelling

is needed before works starts.

2. Adhesive layer of polymer is applied with rollers and brushes.

3. fibreglass mesh is applied and bonded with either resin or base coat of micro cement. Once dry sanding is required.

4. Second and/or third coat of micro cement base coat is applied with specified pigments chosen by the client. Once dry further sanding may be required.

5. Final 2 layers of micro cement top coat are applied together (wet on wet). Polished after dry.

6. Protective sealant is applied in 2 or 3 coats. It is recommended to leave surface for a few days until fully cured before normal use.

 

Below are some examples of micro cement applied to floors, kitchen splash backs and bathroom surfaces.
