What is a Polished Concrete System?

Polished concrete involves a multi-step process of grinding, honing, and polishing concrete floors, resulting in a smooth, glossy surface that’s both durable and attractive.

Importance of the Installation Stage:

The installation stage is critical to the success of polished concrete floors. Achieving a perfectly leveled floor can only be done during installation. We handle everything, from organizing the right mix with the plant to performing the pour ourselves. If custom aggregates are desired, they are added during this stage. We coordinate closely with clients and their builders to ensure all preparations are correctly made.

Custom Aggregates and Finishes:

Enhance your polished concrete with custom aggregates like crushed marble, glass, and sea shells. Choose from various finishes:

  • Exposed Finish: Showcases the chosen aggregates, added during installation, bull-floated in, and power-floated. After 30 days, we return to grind, polish, and seal.
  • Salt and Pepper Finish: Achieved with a light grind.
  • Cream Finish (Powerfloated): Smooth finish with power-floated marks and shades. During curing, we apply a dry shake, power-float until fully dry, and return after 30 days to polish and seal.

Polished concrete finish is vailable in a variety of colors to match your aesthetic preferences.
