Concrete has long been seen as an inferior material to other more glossy looking stone materials, namely granite and marble. However, in the modern design climate, it is becoming more and more common that well produced concrete is being used as an aesthetic material. By having concrete polished, it can make a particular interesting look, something that many designers are starting to favour. In addition, employing polished concrete means that you have a much more cost-effective solution in building the flooring. When you look to have your concrete surface polished, ensure that you seek the very best help from a skilful team with a steady hand.
Polishing is a great way to change the appearance of your concrete surface. By lathering on layers of our specialist coating, you can turn a dull and rough looking surface into one which is bright and much more aesthetically interesting. Having polish applied is a multi-step process, which requires much attention to detail, so to create a finish that is consistent across the entirety of the surface. If applied properly and professionally, it can be a very beneficial addition, being more resistant against staining and moisture damage, solidifying its integrity for a greater period of time.
To make any polishing job successful, every part of the process must be completed in the correct, systematic order. This begins with preparing a concrete surface to properly form bonds with the polish. Grinding the material adds sufficient abrasion, so to make the material better able to retain the liquid polish, once spread on its top layer. Concrete grinding and polishing, in its totality, is the only method to best present a normal concrete surface. Our implementation team will be inch perfect in creating a space that is completely to your aesthetic preference.
To achieve the superior quality of concrete solutions, that our customer expect from us, we use only the very best products and tools available to us. This is no exception for our polishing service, as we strive to deliver the very in the way of functional concrete and aesthetic flooring. Within our arsenal is our specialist epoxy coating. Epoxy coating is a professional sealant, made from two distinct materials: an epoxy resin and a catalyst, known as a polyamine hardener. When these work in conjunction, they form a strong coating which is superiorly resistant and highly durable. This will be both long lasting, in its purpose, and will offer a clean looking appearance.
With any type of polishing, your concrete surface will of course look a lot nicer. However, in adding any sealant, coating or polish, you make the structure much stronger, on the whole. As the liquid polish penetrates the natural cavities in the material, they become fuller and therefore much more structurally sound. This will overall leave you with a stronger surface which is more resistant to damage and moisture. In addition, the process of the concrete becoming brittle is slowed down massively, greatly improving the longevity of the concrete.
