Recently, we took on a project in Philadelphia at NBC 10’s studio. In the photos, you can see our team in action removing the existing, worn tile floor and grinding the concrete underneath.
Next, we applied an epoxy coating and sealed the flooring with a coat of urethane. This new flooring is sleek and will last for years to come.
Day 1: Removing the existing tile and mastic and grinding the concrete.
Day 2: After applying an epoxy coating and before sealing with urethane.
We had the opportunity to help one of our clients, Collegium Charter School in Exton, PA, with their new gymnasium floor.
We removed the tile from the 6,400 sq ft surface and blasted the concrete underneath.
For safety reasons, when installing a floor in a gym, it is crucial that the surface is free of any cracks and that it is smooth. This will significantly reduce the risk of tripping and falling.

Back in September, we traveled to Fredericksburg, VA to take on a project for a customer. We performed a blast and seal on a 220,000 sq ft surface.

We were called again by our friends at Christopher Kunes Construction to polish another Jersey Mikes Sub Shop. As always Shotblast answered the call and delivered a fantastic looking floor. Starting from metal diamonds we worked all the way up to 1500 grit.
If you’re ever in Mechanicsburg, PA stop by to take a look at the floor and enjoy a sub.
The bridge over the Christina River in Wilmington is having some work done to it. In order for the contractor to be able to apply new coatings to the bridge it first has to be prepared.
This week we shot blasted 425,000 square feet on the north bound side of 495.
No job is ever the same. In this business it is very hard to give blind bids because of the uncertainty surrounding each job. Every concrete floor is different and every floor has a different history of treatment. That creates unique challenges when heading into a job.
We also love the customers that we work for, and Christopher Kunes Contracting has been a great customer of ours. He came to us with his latest project, a Jersey Mike’s Sub shop in York, PA. The previous use of this floor left behind a lot of mastic/glue from the tiles that used to cover the floor. When the demolition phase started, they began to remove the tiles and left behind a number of divots in the floor.
Our first job was to prepare the floor by grinding the mastic off. We used 30/40 metal bond diamonds to do that, followed by 60/80 metal bond diamonds. After the floor was ready, we began polishing with our 100 grit transitional diamonds and worked our way up to 1500 grit. In the end the job looked spectacular.
