Polishing concrete is the process of grinding the top layer of the concrete to remove the uneven and rigid areas that deter the concrete from having a soft and even finish.
Polishing your concrete is often done to revitalize existing concrete that is deteriorating in appearance but still has some suitable properties in terms of structural integrity.
By polishing your concrete instead of replacing it altogether, you’ll easily save yourself time, money, and resources, and prolong the existing capabilities of your concrete.
The process of grinding concrete to achieve the polished finish is done using one of our industrial-grade machines which clears away the top layer of the concrete and removes all imperfections in the surface that could cause the concrete to not seal or set evenly.
The process can help remove debris and old materials if the concrete once served as a base for previous building materials or other flooring, such as carpet. Polishing your concrete is the most budget-friendly way to give your old concrete a second chance.
The appearance of polished concrete is what leads many to consider it for their interiors. The appearance of polished concrete is sleek and glossy, making it ideal for gyms, commercial kitchens, and other interior surfaces that could use quick cleaning.
If you want to enhance your polished concrete more, you have the option to stain it with a color or leave it clear.
Many enjoy the appearance of metallic epoxy flooring because of its reflectiveness, versatility, and appearance indoors with other appliances or furniture.

What clients appreciate most about polished concrete is how easy it is to clean once it’s been completed.
Polishing your concrete adds a protective sheen to the top of the concrete which means that a mop or cloth can run across it smoothly at any time. If you’re trying to decide on the benefits between epoxy flooring vs tiles, we can assist in showing you the cleaning required for both.
With polished concrete, you likely won’t need more than a soft cloth and warm water to remove all dirt and debris, while with tile you’ll need solutions to also clean the grout in between tiles. Because of the cleaning required, many opt for the ease in polished concrete.
Another reason many consider polished concrete versus new concrete is because it can add increased protection for half the cost.
Removing old concrete that doesn’t have cracks or clear distress can be a long and invasive process that results in higher costs and longer waiting times.
If your existing concrete is only lacking in appearance and not strength, polishing it can enhance its appearance and rid the surface of any imperfections, making it more affordable to polish your concrete than replace it.
By then adding an epoxy coating to smooth out the top and complete it with a glossy finish, your concrete is thoroughly protected and strengthened for any interior use.
