Polished concrete is an excellent flooring option for many commercial and industrial applications. It creates a sleek, minimalistic aesthetic which gives a clean and professional look to the area. Plus, it brings with it many other advantages including high slip-resistance, incredible durability, and overall ease of maintenance.
How Concrete Floors are Polished
On the vast majority of jobs, we’re polishing the existing concrete slab. Before we can do that, we need to remove any flooring materials that are present such as carpet, tile, or wood. Once removed, we’ll repair any cracks or holes that are present in the slab, unless you want them to be a part of the final design. If necessary, we’ll also fill expansion joints.
Next is the grinding process. The level of grit used during the various stages for the grinding process will be determined by the amount of aggregate exposure desired and the condition of the concrete we’re working with.
Once we’ve ground, polished, and sealed the floor, we can apply a variety of decorative options to the surface. If you don’t want the natural color of the concrete, we can apply overlays and stains to enhance or change the color of the surface. No two concrete floors are the same, and we work directly with our clients to help them achieve the perfect look for their new floor. Just give us a call to discuss your ideas for your flooring project.
Polishing is completed using resin pads of varying grits. We’ll also use a densifier which will penetrate the concrete and help harden and dust-proof the surface.
