Polished concrete offers your concrete solution an image of elegance. Who knew that concrete could appear so shiny? We knew, and that is why we pride ourselves on this solution. No longer do you have to invest in lesser quality materials simply for that shine-effect we know you desire. 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 uses the same material as regular concrete. The only difference is that a polymer is added to the cement solution in order to give it a smoother surface. A hardener added to the surface of the wet concrete solution so that it hardens in a fashion that allows for our grinder tools to work more efficiently at adding the final shine to your material. The hardener is essential to the finished image of your concrete. The surface must be strong ago to undergo the equipment used to create the glossy surface.
Polished concrete offers your driveway, patio, or back porch an elegance that would be considerably costly if you invested in the original materials that polished concrete often emulates. Adding a glossy finish to concrete saves our team time and saves you money. A 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 it may appear as though new polished installations would be too costly and too time-consuming, that’s contrary to the truth. We work best when we have a brand new surface to excavate and set up our concrete. This allows us to spend less time investigating what went wrong with previous installations and more time securing the future of your new concrete installation. 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 concrete stamping style you desire, and polish the area to your liking. We trust that you will be satisfied.
Retrofit concrete polishing requires that the former area be stripped of paint and any potentially hazardous material before the newer concrete is laid on top of it and stylized to the customer’s liking. Retrofit polishing requires that our team investigate any problems that may have occurred with your concrete due to former contractors. 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.
