What is Polished Concrete?
Polished concrete floors are an aesthetically beautiful, low maintenance flooring option for existing concrete slabs or planned builds. True polished concrete is coating free and sealed for stain protection using a penetrating sealer in the same manner as marble or granite bench top.
Gloss Level for Polished Concrete Floors
The gloss level of your concrete floor can be decided during the polishing process. The gloss level achieved is attributed to the fineness of the polishing diamond pads used. Stopping the polishing process at a coarser polishing diamond will achieve a matt, low reflective finish. Whereas polishing up to an ultra fine grit diamond will achieve a high-gloss, highly reflective finish, much like glass.
Polished Concrete Floor Exposure Level
Similar to the importance of choosing your desired gloss level, your polished concrete flooring exposure level also plays a large role in the concrete floor's aesthetic. Choose your level of aggregate exposure for Polished Concrete and Grind & Seal.
