We had the pleasure of working with Parry’s Pizza in Highlands Ranch to prepare the new restaurant for opening in January 2012. We refinished the floors throughout the restaurant, including grinding and sealing the floors in the main area and applying an industrial epoxy coating to the concrete kitchen floor. We built approximately 35 table tops for the dining room, a concrete countertop for the bar area, and 2 large trough sinks for the restrooms. The tabletops, countertops and sinks were left uncolored for an industrial look.

The bar top was installed using a cast-in-place method. This means it was formed and poured on location. Once this concrete cured, the form was removed and then ground open and polished for an exposed aggregate look. Finally, it was sealed with a polyaspartic sealer for years of adequate protection and stain resistance.
Approximately 35 table tops were made for the dining area. A template was made for the booth tables to ensure an exact fit when installed. The template was used to make the form, which the concrete was poured into. The tables match the bar top with a polished exposed aggregate finish. Table tops were then sealed with a water-based sealer for food safety reasons.
Large trough-style sinks were installed in the men’s and women’s bathrooms. A template was made to ensure a precise fit when installed. A hand-packed method was utilized in constructing them, which gave a subtle but beautiful veining look as a final product. Polyaspartic was used as a sealer to ensure many years of protection against water penetration.
The floors were in rough shape when we arrived–glue that needed to be removed, cracks to repair, expansion joints to clean out and holes to fill. The joints were all cleaned out with a crack chaser; the cracks were cut out, filled with an epoxy crack mend material and ground flush with surface; and the holes were filled with Repair Mortar and resurfaced to better match the color of the concrete. Once repair completed, we ground the floors to approximately 80 grit. The dining room was then sealed with two coats of water-based epoxy and two coats of wax. In the kitchen, we applied a coat of tan colored polyaspartic; applied a second coat of clear polyaspartic and broadcast multi-colored vinyl chips into the material; let it cure, scraped excess chips, cleaned the area and applied a clear top-coat of polyaspartic.
