If you want your concrete to look shiny, look no further than the concrete polishing technique from West Coast Epoxy in Oakley. We polish concrete using cutting-edge concrete technology to stain, polish and then protect your new colored concrete floor.
The Polished Concrete Process
Here are the typical steps involved when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the existing concrete prevents faults and the floor sealers adhere permanently. We use high quality industrial vacuum machines to collect the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with faults or deterioration are refloated to the same level as the rest of the concrete. This way the polish is 100 percent solid and flat.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your selection. Any specified patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, obscuring the concrete grain, or light, allowing patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealers applied over the polished floor fill the pores and highlight the fabulous gloss. These clear sealers bond to the smoothed concrete with terrific strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For locations where heavy traffic is expected, we use a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing, therefore, lends the ultimate in decorative durability, for both homes and businesses, while simultaneously creating chemical and scratch resistance. This technique is easily the best for enterprises wanting a good-looking, tougher, and low-maintenance concrete surface in their commercial or industrial facility, or for homeowners wanting a fantastic floor that’s easily maintained.
