Polished concrete has rightly found its place on the list of current design trends and is going nowhere soon. Incredibly versatile as a finish, polished concrete works wonderfully in commercial buildings, industrial spaces and homes. The overall finish and look can be tweaked to suit your tastes and design goals and it’s a smart, sustainable flooring option.

A polished floor feels lovely and smooth to walk on and unlike tiles, acts as a thermal mass within a building keeping it surprisingly warm in winter. It is harder wearing than timber or carpet and incredibly easy to clean making it a low allergy, low maintenance option.

If your existing concrete slab floor has cracks or imperfections, do not let that deter you from polishing it. These character flaws are perfect to give a rustic, industrial or aged look to a property. In fact, some people prefer this look over a smooth, new slab as it creates an interesting and unique visual aspect to a room.

If you are looking for a sleeker finish, then we are able to repair and rejuvenate your existing concrete slab floor prior to polishing. You will be amazed at the transformation that can be achieved with the right attention.

Finishes can vary depending on the level of grind, the finish polish and options such as etching. Unlike other flooring types, polished concrete works in any room of the house and when done right can become a stunning feature of your home or business.
