Sometimes you want more than a concrete overlay or a simple change in color and texture. Perhaps you would prefer your concrete floor to glow, reflecting beauty like a mirror. West Coast Epoxy can definitely stain and seal your concrete floor, but we can go even further and give it a glossy shine with concrete polishing!
How We Polish Concrete
Here are the usual steps employed when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the present concrete prevents imperfections and ensures the floor sealers adhere permanently. We use high quality industrial vacuum equipment to collect the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with deterioration or faults are refloated to the same level as the rest of the concrete. This way the polish is 100% solid and even.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your choosing. Any specified patterns are also added at this time. Stains can be heavy, covering the concrete grain, or light, enabling patterns in the concrete to show through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealants applied above the polished floor fill the pores and emphasize the wonderful gloss. These clear sealers bond to the smooth surface with immense strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For environments where heavy traffic is commonplace, we lay down a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing therefore offers the ultimate in decorative durability for both business and homes, while additionally offering scratch and chemical resistance. This system is easily the best for businesses wanting a beautiful, enduring, and low-maintenance floor surface in their industrial or commercial building, or for homeowners wanting an amazing floor that’s simply maintained.
