Adding polish to the end of the project also helps prevent dust and dirt from seeping into the lines of the pavement. It can also prevent dust mites and other agitators from invading your sacred space because all aspects of your home should make you feel warm and safe.
What is Polished Concrete?
Polished concrete is concrete nonetheless, but you wouldn’t even know that it is the same material that comprises your sidewalk due to the chemical process it undertakes. We work toward ensuring you have the glossy finish you desire. The polishing simply starts with the setting of a material we refer to as “hardener”—it coats the surface of your concrete and allows for an effect that you wouldn’t normally receive with our base material. This hardener helps stabilize your concrete surface. Then, we use our grinder tools to polish your concrete.
Polished concrete is considered an improved alternative to other sources because it often utilizes concrete that has already been made available—there is no need to dig even more holes into the ground and used advanced machinery to implement the glossy finish. We simply need our polished solution and the materials to level out your polished concrete and you will be set to go. The polished finish also disallows dirt and other forms of sediment to seep into the cracks of your concrete which provides for longer durability. However, this is the case if you go for the retrofit polished concrete service versus working with new floors.
Although polished concrete new floors may seem timelier and more expensive, this is not necessarily the case. Our team enjoys setting a new foundation and ensuring that you don’t encounter some of the problems that other clients have experienced who require a retro fit. New floors simply require that we set a leveled cement into the area that needs concrete. From there, we secure the area, smooth out the service, offer you the best stamping style you desire, and polish the area to your liking. We trust that you will be satisfied.
Retrofit concrete polishing regards a topic we discussed earlier. This is when you already have concrete on the ground, but you simply wish to make it look more appealing. Of course, our team of experts must investigate your current ground conditions before adding on to a potentially problematic area. Our team investigates the area and add the proper slabs of material to cover poor condition areas. We do what it takes to secure your investment. After the proper material has been added to potentially damaged concrete, we then work toward giving you the glossy finish you desire.
