Commercial and residential applications for concrete polishing
If there is one word that could describe polished concrete, it would be versatility. You can perform concrete polishing just about anywhere. It is a popular choice for warehouses, factories, retail stores, garages, hotel lobbies, and even restaurants. Many business owners rejoice at the fact that concrete polishing serves multiple purposes. If the floor inside a restaurant or grocery store has a smooth and glossy appearance, then it’s likely because of concrete polishing.
You can also make use of concrete polishing to achieve a certain aesthetic and add more beauty to your home. It’s what a lot of people are doing nowadays. It gives you the option to customize the appearance of your flooring. Instead of opting for something more traditional and plain-looking, you can go with a more abstract design.
Polished concrete is also affordable and it will help you save money well into the future. It is one of the most cost-effective investments you can make. The initial installation expense is relatively economical, and you won’t have to invest a lot of money in repairing and resurfacing your floor. Polished concrete will not damage as easily as traditional concrete installation. The material is also stain-resistant and can withstand heat, moisture, and the physical demands of heavy-duty industrial equipment.
The Main Benefits of Concrete Polishing
Polished concrete is a lot cheaper to acquire than hardwood, tile, marble, or stone alternatives. The cost of installing polished concrete in its entirety is the equivalent of merely acquiring the materials for installing tile or hardwood. The materials we use for concrete polishings are always readily available. Labor is also relatively cheap because it only takes us a day or two to complete any installation.
Polished concrete is extremely long-lasting, which is a big reason why so many people choose to install it. This is because concrete polishing will greatly limit the potential for damage, structural deterioration, and other flooring failures. Not many other flooring systems offer long-lasting results quite like concrete polishing. You will also rarely need to repair or refurbish your flooring. The average lifespan of concrete polishing is roughly 20 years.
Many of our clients rejoice at the many design options that we offer. The stains and dyes that are available to you make the design process more open-ended. We strongly encourage you to explore everything available to you so that you can achieve the design that is suitable to your liking. There are many different color schemes and patterns that can incorporate into your concrete flooring.
A major issue with concrete flooring is that the material is vulnerable to heat and moisture in the atmosphere which will damage it over time. Concrete polishing, however, seals off the material. This means that heat and moisture won’t have any effect on your concrete flooring. This also means that mold or mildew won’t have a chance to grow and proliferate.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there something you need to know about concrete polishing? Here are some questions that our clients commonly ask us.
First off, we want to say that you should try to get into a routine of cleaning and sweeping your concrete flooring. This will go a long way in preserving it. Aside from that, there are other ways in which you can keep your floor in pristine condition. You should always clean up any dirt or debris immediately if it is beginning to collect on your floor. Also, you should regularly mop your floor but with non-abrasive threads. You also want to avoid using acidic cleaners and cleaners with a high concentration of soap because they will dull the appearance of your flooring. We encourage you to use floor vacuums and remove any spills as soon as they occur. Also, be careful not to scrub any area too vigorously.
Careful preparation and installation can prevent any cracks in your concrete foundation. You can also always reseal your floor to add more strength to the material. However, polished concrete can crack, and here are some common reasons why this will happen:
- Too much water in the concrete mixture used to build your flooring
- The soil and earth underneath your concrete flooring will naturally expand and contract, which can also lead to cracking
- A lack of due diligence in maintaining your concrete flooring will also cause cracks to form
The short answer: a long, long time. The lifespan of your polished concrete will ultimately depend on the condition in which you install it. For example, concrete flooring in an industrial setting will not last as long as that in a residential setting. This is because of the physical demands and wavy foot traffic that takes place in warehouses and factories. The average lifespan of polished concrete is roughly 20 years, but if you want your flooring to last longer, then our contractors can make the necessary accommodations. Taking good care of your concrete flooring will also extend its lifespan by many years.
