When you want your floor to be glossy, look no further than the concrete polishing techniques from West Coast Epoxy in Moraga. We polish concrete using cutting-edge concrete technology to stain, polish and afterward protect your newly colored concrete floor.
The Concrete Polishing Process
Here are the usual steps involved when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the present concrete prevents faults and guarantees the floor sealers attach permanently. We use top-shelf industrial vacuum machines to remove the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with deterioration are refloated to the same level as the rest of the concrete. This way the polish is one hundred percent level and solid.
- Staining – The concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your selection. Any requested patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, covering the concrete grain, or light, enabling patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Clear protective layer – Floor sealers applied above the polished floor fill the pores and emphasize the fabulous gloss. These transparent sealers bond to the smoothed concrete with considerable strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For environments where heavy traffic is common, we apply a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Once concrete polishing is done, your lustrous, colorful floors are well defended from wear, scratching and stains. Maintenance is easier, requiring far less care than carpet, linoleum or wood. West Coast Epoxy provides concrete polishing for floors in residences and commercial or industrial warehouses of all types and sizes.
