Polished concrete floors are quickly becoming the favoured choice for both home and business spaces, cherished for their blend of durability, sustainability, and chic style.

Ideal for those who value longevity, these floors stand the test of time while keeping environmental impact to a minimum.

The advantages? A longer-lasting floor that needs less upkeep and keeps looking great. This process is key for making tough, good-looking concrete floors that can take a lot of use.

Polished Concrete Floors

1. The Durability of Polished Concrete

Polishing and densifying concrete not only makes it look better but also makes it much stronger, giving it a longer life and better durability.

This method thickens, hardens, and makes the concrete more resistant to scratches and damage.

Grinding and polishing further strengthen the surface, making it more resistant to wear and tear.

2. Low Maintenance Requirements

Regular dust mopping is sufficient for daily upkeep, preventing the accumulation of debris that could scratch the surface.

Occasional damp mopping can remove spills or marks, although it’s needed less frequently due to the concrete’s stain resistance.

Overall, polished concrete floors offer a blend of practicality, durability, and aesthetic appeal with minimal maintenance.

Initial Costs

Polishing existing concrete might cost about the same or a bit more than other common flooring, but it’s cheaper than luxury options like marble or hardwood.

If you’re pouring new concrete, it could be more expensive upfront than installing other types of flooring on an existing base.
