Polished Concrete

Polished concrete is an exceptionally durable and attractive flooring choice in both homes and businesses. It is also very economical. Since many properties are built over concrete slabs, it is far less expensive to polish the concrete to a beautiful, high-luster shine than to cover it with carpet, tile, or other flooring option.

The polishing process involves the use of coarse diamond abrasives that grind the concrete in several steps; first, to eliminate minor pits, blemishes, stains, and other imperfections in the floor, and then to polish the floor to a high-gloss finish.

Polished concrete is an extremely versatile flooring choice, and allows the property owner to choose the level of sheen, from satin to high gloss, depending on the level of reflectivity desired. Additionally, dyes and intricate patterns can be added that create a unique appearance or even imitate the look of polished stone.

Since there is no floor finish or wax that requires periodic stripping and re-application, polished concrete requires very little maintenance. In fact, many polished concrete floors can last as long as ten years before needing any sort of restorative maintenance.
