Concrete is often thought of as a boring, utilitarian surface but it is actually very beautiful once it has been polished up. Here’s what you need to know about polished concrete.
Polished concrete is, as the name suggests, achieved by polishing concrete in order to produce an attractive finish. Polished concrete is ideal for using inside the home as it has all of the durability of standard concrete and it is able to create a look from classic to contemporary, making it versatile and able to suit any decor.
Polished concrete is created in a number of ways. These include through steel trowelling, burnishing, or honing the concrete. Don’t think that you’re restricted to just grey either. You have the ability to use all different colours and patterns and you can even create images in the flooring using items such as aggregates, shells, or stone. Once the polishing is done, the concrete is sealed to preserve the finish.
Polished concrete is generally applied to new concrete but it can also be done to existing concrete, which means that it is an extremely viable option for resurfacing your concrete.
Polished concrete can be achieved by enlisting the services of licensed and qualified professionals that are experienced in all methods of polishing. Ensure that you look at their previous work so that you can see the quality of the concrete that they produce. They should let you know what process they are using and how long it will take – not just to polish and resurface the concrete itself, but how long you’ll have to wait before you can use the new floor. As always, ensure that you get quotes before work begins.
