Refinisher puts polish on WerkMaster deal

Fab-u-Floors Refinishing Services Ltd. is the first company in North America authorized by Werk Industries to employ the new proprietary WerkMaster Concrete Polishing System. The WerkMaster machine refinishes concrete, hardwood and stone surfaces using segmented diamond abrasives. Its patent-pending Octi-Disc Technology virtually eliminates hand edging in nearly all applications. The system provides a high-gloss mechanical shine on concrete without coatings, chemicals or additives. The machine flattens the floor so that all variations in the concrete surface are removed, allowing for a finer, smoother finish. The WerkMaster was originally developed to polish black granite, and today, the process works on all natural stone products such as marble and travertine, as well as terrazzo and concrete. Another advantage of the WerkMaster is that it grinds, edges and polishes to within 1/8 inch of the walls. The system can be used on concrete countertops, and it allows for new unique design capabilities for tilt-up concrete wall construction. Fab-u-Floors and WerkMaster were commissioned by Storied Places, an Intrawest company, to develop this process for use in their Mammoth Mountain Resort Condominium Development in California. Fab-u-Floors is developing a franchise model that will allow companies the opportunity to expand or enter the business of refinishing concrete, hardwood and stone. ? ?
