The Benefits of Concrete Polishing

Benefits of Concrete Polishing

Enhanced Appearance

Polishing leaves a high gloss finish that is comparable to natural stone.

A Long-Term Solution

Without topical coatings, there is nothing to peel, chip, or flake.

No Curing Time

There is nothing to cure meaning that when we leave, the floor is yours.

Minimal Maintenance

Just sweep and mop, strippers and waxes are never used.

Increased Durability

Our densifier dustproofs your floor and increases its abrasion resistance.

A Safe, No-slip Surface

Wet or dry, it meets and exceeds OSHA slip resistance standards. Click here to download our Slip Resistance testing information.

Green/Environmentally Friendly

An environmentally friendly process that counts towards a number of LEED-NC points:

Optimize Energy Performance Concrete’s thermal mass can reduce a building’s heating and cooling loads.  Highly reflective floors can decrease energy consumption by reducing the use of internal lighting. (EA Credit 1)
Building Reuse Polishing the existing concrete eliminates the need for new flooring materials to cover the old concrete.
Material Reuse Instead of replacing old flooring materials such as epoxy or tile, the existing slab can be reused by polishing the concrete. (MR Credit 3.1, 3.2)
Recycled Content Using suitable concrete additives will increase the recycled content of new concrete. (MR Credit 4.1, 4.2)
Low Emitting Materials The concrete polishing process results in little to no VOC’s and does not require strippers or waxes.
Innovation in Design Polished concrete has a long life cycle, improves the environmental quality of the building, and has a low environmental impact over its lifetime. Click here to download our full document on the benefits of polished concrete on LEED-NC projects.
