Polished Concrete Flooring
Polished Concrete Flooring Residential | Commercial
Polished concrete is a diverse, durable, and beautiful flooring that can be installed over any substrate at any stage of a project. It can be poured as a thick slab on grade mass, or as a thin section overlay. It is a medium that takes time to understand and experience to coerce in the way that you want it to behave. It is both a craft and chemical reaction, thus it requires both artistry and analysis to come together as a thing of beauty.

Concrete can be integrally or topically coloured absolutely any colour. It can be matte or shiny or everything in between. There are not many materials that are as design diverse.
