This five-year-old acid-stained floor needed an upgrade. The contractor ground off all old sealer and stain and achieved a 200-grit clean surface.

First the contractor applied its flowing ribbons. The surface was scored using a 4-inch angle grinder with a diamond blade. Then the ribbons were dyed. Then the pattern was sawcut 4x4 feet underneath the ribbons, and airbrushed using three colors to recreate a stained look. Then the surface was densified and polished to 8000 grit. Although the 500-square-foot area was tiny, the project turned out great.
