CONCRETE POLISHING SERVICES

Polished Concrete

Mechanically polished concrete finishes are created by using polishing machines that utilise discs that contain diamonds. Much like heavy-duty sandpaper, the diamond polishing discs grind down the concrete until the desired look is achieved, exposing a small amount of aggregate (rocks in the concrete) or full exposure of the aggregate. A chemical hardener/densifier is then used to penetrate the concrete, creating a reaction that dust-proofs and hardens the surface of the concrete floor.

Pavilion Finish

External polished concrete floor finish used around pools, courtyards, in al-fresco areas and driveways. Pavilion finishes are highly durable, semi-smooth surfaces that are easy to maintain and add value to your home or business.

BENEFITS OF POLISHED CONCRETE

High Durability

Polished concrete is the most durable flooring option available on the market today for residential, commercial and industrial floor spaces. Polished concrete floors can last up to 10 years with a very basic regular maintenance schedule. Residential spaces may need to consider rebuffing after 10 years however this is entirely variable and will depend on the amount of traffic and wear and tear the flooring is exposed to.

Aesthetics

Polished concrete undoubtedly comes in at number one when people are after a unique and eye-catching floor in a residential home, retail space or any environment where a hard, durable hassle-free flooring solution is required. No other flooring option on the market allows the client the scope and flexibility to create a flooring solution that is specific to their individual taste and can be tailored to work in with the home itself and its surrounds

Comparison to other flooring options

Unlike timber hardwood floors, laminates, tiles and vinyl flooring; polished concrete is at the lower end of price per square meter and taking into consideration the ongoing costs involved in maintaining flooring options such as timber floors or tiles, polished concrete is the best value for money.

Eco-Friendly and Energy Saving

Polished concrete floors emit no mould or mildew and are allergy free and harbour no dust mites. Having polished concrete floors can save on your energy bills by creating more light in your home by up to 30% in daylight hours. They also stay warmer in the colder months and cooler in the summer months due to the concrete’s thermal mass; which works as a natural insulator. New builds can also have hydronic heating installed in the concrete floor if the client has opted for this kind of heating option.
