Concrete is one of the most durable building materials available.


It is naturally tough and can last decades without maintenance. Concrete polishing, a process which transforms the concrete, has become a popular means of taking advantage of this mundane material. Concrete Polishing Northern Suburbs is especially popular with many homeowners interested in upgrading their new or existing concrete slabs.Concrete Polishing Northern Suburbs

Polishing transforms the cold, hard concrete slab into a bright, sleek sophisticated floor. The multi-step process requires the use of special tools and equipment consisting of three basic steps – grinding, honing and polishing.

Machines with coarse diamond pads are used to grind down the concrete to the desired level and smoothness. A hardener is added to densify the concrete and increase the durability, along with any colours, stains or finishes. Machines are then used to grind the slab with increasingly finer blades until the desired level of shine is achieved. It can be low, medium or a high-level mirror-like shine.  If a deeper colour is desired, it is applied before the final polishing process. Protective treatments can be applied last, which will lessen the need for maintenance in the intervening years. If the concrete has been properly hardened and polished its longevity increases dramatically.
