If you want your concrete to be shiny, look no further than the concrete polishing system from West Coast Epoxy in Diablo. We polish concrete using cutting edge concrete technology to stain, polish and afterward protect your brand new colored concrete floor.
The Polished Concrete Process
Here are the usual steps employed when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the present concrete eliminates faults and ensures the floor sealers attach permanently. We use high-end industrial vacuum equipment to grab the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with deterioration or faults are refloated to the same level as the rest of the floor. This way the polish is fully flat and solid.
- Staining – The concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your selection. Any needed patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, hiding the concrete grain, or light, allowing patterns in the concrete to show through like polished wood.
- Clear protective layer – Floor sealers applied above the polished floor fill the pores and emphasize the impressive gloss. These transparent sealers bond to the smooth concrete with terrific strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For areas where heavy traffic is normal, we use a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing, therefore, provides the ultimate in decorative durability, for both businesses and homes, while also creating scratch and chemical resistance. This technique is easily the best for enterprises wanting a beautiful, stronger, and low-maintenance floor surface in their industrial or business building, or for homeowners wanting an expressive floor that’s easily maintained.
