The basic concept is that an old layer of concrete is ground down with a diamond grinder after which a chemical densifier is added to harden the surface. The surface can then be polished to a glass like, non skid surface. There's a very good chance that you have already been exposed to polished concrete surfaces. Many of the larger drug stores and retail stores are moving toward this solution for their newer locations; you may have also seen it in nicer restaurants and high end department stores. They all have different levels of polishing, and some even incorporate logos and color work to the concrete floor.We can help you choose from a wide variety of concrete colors and even grinding down to expose some of the aggregate, (rocks in the concrete mix), that will give your floor a kind of "natural rock terrazzo" look.

Polished concrete really looks beautiful and helps with light reflection adding up to a 30% increase in brightness. No one likes to clean a floor and concrete polishing cuts down cleaning time significantly. A light detergent damp mop gets your floors clean in minutes, and in industrial applications, there's no need to use harsh chemicals. Maintenance costs can prove to be a fraction of maintaining tile or carpet floors.You could expect to reduce your cleaning costs by as much as 50%.
There are many different levels of polishing that can be achieved with polished concrete. A light surface polish helps keep concrete clean looking and prevents dust from being kicked up. Concrete polishing cuts down the amount of contamination dust being moved around by air conditions and circulators, further slashing your cleaning costs.
Twenty years ago people didn't even think about grinding concrete, the only options for covering those old floors was with carpet and VCT floor tiles but times have changed. Contact us for an evaluation of your project to see if concrete polishing is a viable option for you.
