Concrete polishing can transform drab, tired concrete floors into a notable design feature that rivals the look of other floor finishing choices, such as tiles, marble, hardwood, or carpet.

Polished concrete floors are also incredibly versatile. The degree of sheen and the size of aggregate exposed can create various looks for a wide range of settings, including:

  • Residential homes
  • Commercial office buildings
  • Retail showrooms and storefronts
  • Commercial kitchens and restaurants
  • Hospitals and educational facilities
  • Warehouses

How We Polished Concrete

Concrete is typically a mix of cement, air, sand, water, and coarse aggregate. The aggregate can consist of gravel or crushed stone and accounts for about 40% of the concrete mix. This rough-looking wear layer can be ground down and polished smooth to reveal the cross-sections of the coarse aggregate inside the concrete.

At Burnaby Epoxy Flooring Experts, we can control the depth of the grinding and the shine of the resulting finish. We can grind down to the aggregate, or we can polish the wear layer to create a smooth surface.

Less Maintenance

Concrete polishing also creates a durable, long-lasting finish to your floors to save long-term maintenance costs.

Unlike carpet, which needs to clean every six months, or hardwood which is expensive to refinish, concrete floors can be re-polished every 3-5 years at an affordable price.

For schools, sports facilities, hospitals, stores, and warehouses with heavy foot traffic, polished concrete floors make the most economic sense. 

Benefits of Polished Concrete

Consider these benefits of polished concrete:

  • It’s cost-effective because you don’t have to lay any other flooring on top of polished concrete.
  • It’s clean and doesn’t attract or trap allergens, dirt, and pollutants.
  • It’s naturally anti-static.
  • It can withstand high traffic and doesn’t show marks from heavy equipment use.
  • It’s a breeze to clean as there are no grooves or dents for the dirt to collect in.
  • It will last a long time and can be re-polished as needed.
  • It’s slick, modern, and attractive.
  • Its shiny surface helps maximize the effect of natural light.
  • It doesn’t off-gas VOCs and doesn’t need any adhesives or toxic topcoats.
  • It can be stained or designed to match your color scheme.

So if you have an existing concrete slab, you could be walking on a gem that needs a little polishing.
