When you want your concrete to look glossy, search no further than the concrete polishing technique used by West Coast Epoxy in Gold River. We polish concrete using cutting edge concrete technology to stain, polish and then protect your newly colored concrete floor.
The Polished Concrete Process
Here are the typical steps involved when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the current concrete eliminates blemishes and the floor sealers bond permanently. We use high end industrial vacuum equipment to grab the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with deterioration, cracks or faults are refloated to the same level as the rest of the floor. This way the polish is totally solid and flat.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your picking. Any needed patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, covering the concrete grain, or light, allowing patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealers applied above the polished floor fill the pores and emphasize the fabulous gloss. These clear sealers bond to the smoothed out concrete with great strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For areas where heavy traffic is normal, we apply a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Once concrete polishing is done, your glass-like, colorful floors are thoroughly defended from wear, stains and scratching. Clean up is easier, needing far less care than linoleum, wood or carpet. West Coast Epoxy lends concrete polishing for floors in residential properties and industrial or commercial workshops of all types and sizes.
