Polished concrete is increasing in popularity, not only for its clean, sleek, and modern appearance, but for its cost-effectiveness, sustainability, durability, availability, and health benefits.
Existing slabs can be ground and polished to create a hard-wearing and visually appealing floor. The cost of polished concrete is offset by virtually no maintenance cost.
Concrete floors will not chip or dent like softer surfaces such as wood and are easily maintained by simply mopping with warm soapy water. Polished concrete doesn’t require annual sealing like other overlay and color treatments.
Traditionally, concrete floors have been covered over by a variety of floor coverings, surface coatings, and topical sealers otherwise known as “overlayments”. Often, when considering the lifespan of the overlayment, this process represents expensive installation, ongoing maintenance, and eventual replacement costs, however, in all circumstances the underlying structural concrete remains. Polished concrete eliminates the need for overlayments by converting the actual existing concrete into an economical, durable, and low maintenance finished surface; able to withstand the toughest of traffic whilst producing spectacular visual appeal.
