W hether old or new, most concrete can be polished to achieve a vast array of finishes. The minimal amount of upkeep and maintenance required with polished concrete floors provides a tremendous cost saving. No need for stripping or waxing and say goodbye to topical sealers! Imagine black-glass cast into a white floor – we’ve done it! Picture stainless steel pieces polished with a jet black matrix – check! There are unlimited opportunities for design. Whatever you decide, the result is an extremely durable and uniquely personal floor that will look great for years to come!
P olished concrete is no longer a new flooring option. It is being specified by architects, homeowners, building managers and facility operators on a regular basis. Unlike tile, linoleum, hardwood or other pre-manufactured floor coverings, polished concrete is a multi-step process that relies heavily on the installation team. Not all concrete is the same. Concrete varies depending on the prescribed application, geographical location, installation methodology and curing state. Our polishing contractors employ the skills of the trade, read the condition of the slab and choose the appropriate methodology. Our team is skilled at elucidating the needs of the customer while respecting the integrity of the material and site conditions.
