RetroPlate was the perfect choice to meet the demands of this very active worship facility with an estimated weekly attendance of over 17,000 per week and founded by T.D. Jakes. It was time to replace the existing carpet with a hard, durable, highly polished and decorative floor finish that could withstand the thousands of people passing through its doors. The architectural firm presented RetroPlate as the best flooring solution for this facility’s needs.
The RetroPlate Certified Applicator installed a mock-up to show they could meet the challenges of the pre-existing conditions of the facility. It involved removing carpet glue, a tile setting bed in various locations, as well as repairing cracks and spalls. Aside from resolving these pre-existing conditions, the applicator company was also tasked with accomplishing a spectacular and complex floor, with multiple dye color changes to complement the aesthetics of the building. The Facilities Manager and Maintenance Manager were extremely pleased with their new, beautifully designed RetroPlate polished floors.
The ability to custom tint the joint filler to match the dye colors used in the design of the floor was a winning combination. Once the initial installation was complete, the beauty of RetroPlate’s polished concrete was carried into other areas of the building, totaling over 50,000 square feet. The Facilities Director added that after two years of service, they have enjoyed the flexibility and ease of maintenance presented by their RetroPlate floors.
