What Advantages Does Seamless Flooring Have Over Others?
Seamless flooring has many advantages that make them a superior choice compared to other flooring options.
Here are some of the benefits of seamless flooring:
- Gives Floors a Fluid Appearance – Since there are no joints, the floor looks fluid and expansive, instead of a grid-like caged look.
- Makes Rooms Look Spacious – Seamless flooring makes smaller rooms appear larger and give them a modern look.
- Sense of Continuity – Seamless flooring adds a sense of continuity between an indoor and outdoor space when applied to both surfaces.
- Long Lasting – With special treatment, seamless flooring minimises the impact of foot traffic, chemical agents, water penetration and UV rays. This makes them long-lasting

Seamless Flooring Process
Proper preparation, using the right tools, quality products and hiring experts is the key to laying beautiful looking seamless flooring.
The top layer is first taken off the slab using a grinder which has a dust extraction system.
This step removes impurities such as residues, dirt, paint, oil and grease absorbed in the floor’s surface over time. New slabs also need to be cleaned, as they may have accumulated dirt when in storage.
Any remaining dust or dirt is vacuumed so that the slab is smooth and clean and prepared for the application process.
Prime Coat Application
At Designer-Crete, we use a two-pack epoxy coating which is followed by coloured flake.
The products are carefully mixed to ensure an accurate mix. The prime coat is cut in using a paint brush and applied using a 10-12mm nap roller. Working in sections, total coverage is ensured. This ensures a uniform surface coverage and an efficient use of the product.
Base Coat Application
Once the prime coat has been applied, the floor is allowed to rest for 24 hours so the slab can react to the prime coat and also show any problems which are in the slab.
The prime coat also needs to be dry and have no patchiness so that the base coat can be uniformly applied. A sufficient amount of base coat is prepared for cutting in. This enables enough working time before the mixture can go off. After the cutting-in has been completed, the remaining base coat is applied generously for ensuring total coverage.
The flake is applied to the first section before the base coat is applied to the next section. The flake is distributed by tossing handfuls of it in the air and allowing it to fall directly onto the coating.
The process is repeated until the floor is fully covered with flake. A roller is used over the flake to settle it evenly and stick properly to the base coat.
The floor sealing occurs 24 hrs after applying the flake and the floor is dry. To prepare the floor for sealing the flake is knocked down with a trowel to obtain a smooth finish. The floor then needs to be vacuumed to ensure no loose flakes are present and the sealer goes on cleanly.
The sealer is prepared and rolling in the floor, systematically covering the entire area.
Top Coat Application
The top coat around 5 hrs after application of the first sealer coat. Once completed, you will have beautiful looking seamless flooring which will last for years.
