Concrete Floors

Generally speaking, any structurally sound concrete floors, whether it be old or new, can be polished. However, there are a few exceptions to the rule.

Existing concrete floors will need some surface preparation prior to polishing to remove any impurities such as dirt, grease, coatings or blemishes. Concrete floors that are wavy, need extensive patching, or are extremely porous may not be suitable candidates for polishing. We will be able to determine the suitability of your concrete floors.

For brand new floors, no special mix is required to have good results. However, the floor should be set in place at least 28 days prior to having the polishing procedure begin. This will ensure adequate curing.

To help solidify polished concrete surfaces, we may apply penetrating hardeners to the concrete. This will happen after the first step of the grinding process. The products used can be applied to new or old floors, and work by reacting chemically with the concrete to form a hard crystalline structure.
