How Does Polished Concrete Work?
You may be looking at poured cement right now and wonder what sort of polish we use for shinier floors. However, unlike restoring wood or metal surfaces, polishing your concrete flooring system involves a lot of preparation and a few experienced contractors.
The actual polishing of your cement takes place with an industrial sanding device that uses pads tipped with commercial diamonds. By etching away the topmost surface layer, we can then expose the pores and add specialized color dyes and stains.
Once we finish grinding with increasingly finer grits of sanding pads, your surfaces get left smooth, even, and glasslike. Best of all, most systems only require a quick use of a dry dust mop to keep them looking bright.
Eventually, when they do start to look clouded, we can quickly restore them with another few passes of fresh sanding. Our regular maintenance is quick, professional, and easy. In the end, few flooring materials offer as much daily protection without the need for continuous care and maintenance services.
Industrial Polished Concrete
Although homeowners have only recently started to discover polished concrete flooring applications, industrial facilities have used them for many years. Few other flooring materials offer enough daily durability to withstand machinery, forklifts, and corrosive fluid spills as polished concrete does.
Whether you manufacture goods onsite or act as a storage facility, you will love how your floors look and perform. If other building materials fail to protect your buildings from heavy daily use, we guarantee better results with our contractors.
Retail Polished Concrete
When business owners open a new retail center, many of them spend a large percentage of their budget on the flooring itself. And when that cost doesn’t include the price to have it professionally installed, there needs to be a better way.
We create stunning polished concrete flooring systems that leave your retail space better protected from impacts, foot traffic, and more. No matter what service or product you provide, your new cement surfaces will help you succeed.
Once the cement’s surface pores get exposed, we can add coloration dyes to create a specific pattern or appearance.
Rather than dye the concrete, we instead utilize a specialty staining product that reacts with the limestone present in cement.
While the surface stays pliable, we apply a stamped concrete overlay that presses a pattern into the floor.
Polished Concrete Floors
How much sheen you see from your new polished concrete floors becomes up to how finely sanded you need them.
The finer the sanding grit, the shinier your new polished concrete floors become, achieving a glossy reflective surface.
By keeping the grits of your sanding pads to remain not as fine will create a matte finish.
