Benefits of choosing a polished concrete floor

Besides looking beautiful and ​polished​ like high quality marble, polished concrete is also remarkably long wearing and damage resistant. This means you will ultimately save money in the long run by avoiding costly repairs or maintenance. As you are polishing the existing concrete slab or grade, your overall cost versus the installation of an alternative floor covering will be much less. For this reason, concrete polishing serves as a much more cost effective option, whilst still achieving an aesthetically pleasing final result. This flooring option also requires little to no maintenance and is very easy to clean, as it doesn’t harbor allergens or dust.

Our processes

1. Mechanically Polished Concrete (MPC)

MPC is our​ most popular option ​for residential properties and high end commercial premises. It is comprised of up to ​12 step​s, including three metal grinding stages to reach a desired level of aggregate exposure. The floor is then grouted to fill blow out holes and air pockets, then densified several times and polished up to a 3000 grit with diamond impregnated resin disks to achieve the desired gloss finish. It is then finished with an impregnating sealer to protect from stains. ​ This method will elicit that reflective, high sheen or satin finish ​and is the most superior long lasting polished concrete available on the market. Our own brand is the result of years of improvement and dedication to excellence. We believe our processes and products are superior to all other brands in the market place.

2. Grind and Seal. 

Our other option is referred to as a grind and seal​​, which is a more affordable option and only involves three grinding​ steps ​to achieve the desired aggregate exposure. For certain outdoor applications such as around a pool where the area is prone to getting wet, we recommend an impregnating sealer with a matt finish to obtain slip resistant properties. ​ This alternative is suited for a home owner ​or commercial proprietor looking for a more cost efficient option, however it ultimately will not be as long lasting as the mechanical polish and will require periodic resealing and polishing typically every 2-5 years.
