ABOUT POLISHED CONCRETE

The look, feel & performance are very important. Think “Smooth as silk, hard as rock” Is this what they mean by the ‘wow’ factor? Have you ever walked on a marble floor in bare feet? This is what a polished floor can feel like underfoot. Pure luxury. But that’s only half the story. With its range of benefits including easy to clean (no discoloured grout), lower maintenance, hypoallergenic and high thermal mass, you’ll only have one decision.

The concrete polishing process involves a series of mechanical grinding and polishing techniques using professional concrete polishing equipment.

Using machines equipped with diamond segmented abrasives, concrete can be polished to various levels of stone exposure, which means you can choose how much aggregate you want to be visible.

The finish can be high-gloss, semi-gloss or matte – meaning there is a look and finish to suit every style!

The applications are endless!
