Different Concrete Polished Floor Finishes
Step 1: Choose the Perfect Aggregate Exposure Level
To get the ball rolling, we’ll speak with you about the type of exposure you’re looking for with your flooring:
For most industrial jobs, we leave close to zero stone exposed within the polished concrete. This is the most typical aesthetic appearance for warehouse or industrial properties. Sometimes this is used for ‘low to high’ sheen choices.
For commercial jobs, most people choose semi-exposure. This ensures there is an aesthetic appeal to the concrete while maintaining a durable outer shell the protects against the wear and tear of commercial use. While this is most often a commercial option, it is also sometimes used in residential homes as well.
For residential properties, premium polished concrete typically involves full exposure. This gives the external appearance that many homeowners are looking for. You can customize this type of flooring to suit the internal design of your home.
Step 2: Choose the Perfect Finish
Designed by Husqvarna, HiPERFLOOR is the best finish on the market. It creates a glossy, smooth appearance while also protecting from scratches and external damage. It’s a perfect choice if you want to avoid grout and allergenic materials.
This is a low-cost solution that still provides an external aesthetic appearance. The only downside is that it will need to be refinished from time to time—often between three and seven years, depending on the level of wear and tear.
If you’re looking for outdoor finishing, it’s important to use a finishing that is suitable to further exposure. You don’t want an outdoor finishing that can’t handle the external elements. Also, a smooth finish will help ensure you can easily wash or clean your polished outdoor concrete.
Step 3: We Get to Work
Next, sit back and relax while we create the polished concrete floor of your dreams. We’ll use industry-leading machinery and equipment to provide you with premium polished concrete.
We’ll grind the surface down, making it rough and uneven to begin the process of removing scratches and damage. Next, we’ll begin smoothing the concrete to ensure it’s even and aesthetically pleasing prior to the start of the polishing.
We use a resin bond to polish the concrete, along with a matte finish customised to your preferences. Last, we’ll cover any small holes using grout and then apply a hardener and penetrative sealer to ensure the longevity of your polished concrete flooring.
