What is concrete polishing?

Concrete polishing is the latest in the flooring industry that takes concrete floors and turns them into natural looking, beautiful, durable and economical floors. It is one of the fastest growing flooring options for retail, industrial and residential buildings. It is popular among retail showrooms, industrial plants, offices, restaurants, educational facilities as well as garage floors in the every day household.

Polished concrete/Terrazzo is a multi-step process where a concrete floor is mechanically ground, honed and polished with bonded abrasives in order to cut a concrete floor’s surface. It is then refined with each cut in order to achieve a specified level of appearance.

This process also includes the use of a penetrant chemical known as a hardener. The concrete densifier/hardener penetrates into the concrete and creates a chemical reaction to help harden and dust-proof the surface. During concrete polishing, the surface is processed through a series of steps (in general a minimum of four grinding steps of processing is considered polished concrete) utilizing progressively finer grinding tools. The grinding tools are progressive grits of industrial diamonds in a bonded material such as metal/hybrid/resin often referred to as diamond polishing pads. Polished concrete is a “green” flooring system and LEED approved.

How is it different?

Low Maintenance

Polished concrete is a low maintenance hassle free flooring and unlike some other materials, it doesn’t require professional cleaning to keep it looking great.

Durable

Polished concrete is extremely strong and resilient and is able to withstand the pressure from very heavy foot traffic, equipment, vehicles, forklifts and stacked crates.

Long Life Span

Polished concrete has a long life span that will far surpass that of other floor coverings, such as carpeting, vinyl tile and wood laminates.

Polishing Terrazzo cuts down maintenance costs and requires no wax coating. The removal and reapplication of wax shortens the life of the Terrazzo floor.

We specialize in concrete polishing as well as the removal of mastic, thin set, epoxy and various other coatings.

Environmentally Friendly

There are no dangerous or harmful chemicals involved in the process of polished concrete flooring. It is totally safe for you, your employees, customers and children. Polished concrete is resistant against allergens, mustiness and fungus.

Simple Care

The only care and maintenance that is required for a polished concrete floor is to clean it with a neutral-based cleaner and water.

 Stain or Dye

Polished concrete floors can be used in indoor applications as well as outdoor applications and can be stained and dyed with a variety of colors.

Life-Span

A polished and properly maintained concrete floor will last many years. Even in commercial applications it can survive under high traffic conditions. This in turn saves you money and saves you the trouble of having new flooring installed or resurfaced periodically.

Improves ambient lighting

The reflectivity of a polished concrete floor increases the lighting in facilities. Increased ambient lighting will aid in reducing your energy bill.
