We require a new, smooth, soundly fixed and crack free floor substrate for new floors. Old substrates require a special treatment, therefore advises can be provided during the site survey. When having an old subfloor, we prefer to undertake the substrate preparation.

The resin floor system for residential projects can be 2.5 – 4 mm nominal. The standard thickness is 3 mm.

On industrial projects we can apply resin systems of a thickness from 0.5 mm to 9 mm.

Most of our resin systems are highly UV stable.

Depending on the resin system, the installation time varies between 2-5 days. For a standard single colour resin floor for domestic use, the installation time is 4 days. It takes up to 5 days to install a 3D resin floor.

Fast cure systems, mainly suitable for commercial and industrial units, can be installed within 12 hours.

Once the high quality image is chosen/or provided, it takes up to 2 days to update it to the floor size.

Once the 3D design is created and updated as required, it takes up to 2 weeks to print and deliver the 3D graphic print to UK.

The curing periods are different for different resin systems.

Here are the curing periods for standard resins for residential use:

#   24 hours for foot traffic

#   36 hours light wheeled loading

#   48 hours moderate wheeled vehicles and application of floor protection

#   72 hours heavy wheeled vehicles

#   168 hours water and chemical spillages

*Curing periods based on a minimum constant temperature of 15 degrees centigrade.

Fast cure resin systems can receive foot traffic within 4 hours after installation.*

We advise to apply Correx boards on a tack free surface, normally 24-48 hours after resin installation.

Yes, it can be applied to stairs. Prior to the application, each stair must be fitted with metal trim or wooden baton as a stair front nosing. The stairs must be treated before the resin is poured. You can ask your builder to perform the preparation, or we can help with this.

Our resin systems are perfectly suitable to be installed on top of under floor heating systems. The floor will maximum reach 28-30 degrees, which does not affect the resin. However, care must be taken with normal central heating systems with radiators where water in the pipes can reach 90 degrees. A thick screed or concrete slab is recommended on top of UFH systems.

Resin floor can have patch repairs, however, for a perfect finish a top coat all over the floor is recommended.

It is perfect for shower rooms. A clear anti slip sealer with a fine aggregate is applied as a top coat.

Suitable substrates are: concrete, cementitious screeds, pymer rich screeds, marine ply and certain types of tiles.

Wooden floor must be treated/reinforced before the resin is installed. Timber floors should be minimum 25 mm thick tongue and grooved marine plywood mechanically fixed with counter sunk screws at minimum 10 cm centres. Further actions are taken to reinforce and treat the joints. Only polyurethane resins are recommended on top of wooden floors.

Note! We can minimise the risk of substrate movement whether dynamic or thermal, but cannot guarantee the system will not crack on timber substrates.

We'll slightly abrade the surface and a seal coat is reapplied. The floor will looks new after being recoated.

Yes, it can. There are special underlay products applied before the resin is poured. The acoustic resin system is perfect for residential and commercial units.

Yes. The warranty period is different for each resin system applied. Please contact us for more information.

Resin floors are seamless and perfectly smooth. This makes them highly hygienic and extremely easy to clean and maintain. In residential houses you can clean the resin in the same way as you would clean any hard floor: with a soft broom or light vacuum, or by mop and bucket with mild detergent diluted in water, then rinse with clean water.

The average lead time is 2 - 4 weeks.

Considering the specific installation process, we prefer not to quote this type of flooring per square meter as this could be very misleading. We can offer a price per whole project, based on the resin system required, floor size and floor plan. The bigger the size of the floor, the cheaper it is per square meter as you save on labor cost when having a bigger project.

As a guide, please see some price estimates for up to 100 m2 floors in residential houses below:

ü  Single colour resin floor/flame effect: £80/m2 - £300/m2. Minimum order value £1,656 ex VAT

ü  3D resin floor: £120/m2 - £520/m2. Minimum order value £1,945 ex VAT

Prices for industrial and commercial projects can vary depending on the resin system required and project size. Prices can start from as little as £18/m2.

We are happy to send samples of the required resin finish by post. For small projects the samples are sent only after the client has seen the standard price for the resin floor system based on the floor size and floor plan.

At 3D Royal Floors we work with RAL colour charts. There are over 150 RAL colours available for residential projects. Please choose a colour code from here. 

For flame effect resin floor, also called polished concrete effect, there is a large palette of combined colours to choose from. You can choose your flame effect shade fromhere.

There is no minimum or maximum project size for us. We will apply resin on any floor/wall size.

You can book a site survey by sending an email with your available dates, or by calling on +44 208 286 9377.

The site survey is free of charge. It offers you the opportunity to ask the specialist specific project details, also to see and touch resin samples with various resin finishes.

Note! For residential projects and other small projects we can arrange site surveys only after the client has seen the standard price for the required resin system based on the size and plan of your floor.

You can contact us to place an order by email or by calling the office number. The order is considered to be placed once the deposit payment is cleared. Then we can book the start date for the resin installation.

We accept payments by electronic bank transfer, cheque or Paypal. Call us for details.
