Polishing concrete is the process of mechanically abrading and polishing a concrete surface with a progression of finer diamond abrasives. The result is not only a beautiful finish, but also a durable, economical, and sustainable floor.
Through a combination of aggregate, sheen and color options, polished concrete is sure to match your aesthetic. Sheen choices are Satin, Semi-Gloss and Gloss. Coloring for existing floors is achieved through staining, while new Cast-In-Place floors can be integrally colored or stained.
