If you want your concrete to look glossy, look no further than the concrete polishing method from West Coast Epoxy in Orangevale. We polish concrete using the latest concrete technology to stain, polish and protect your newly colored concrete floor.
The Concrete Polishing Process
Here are the usual steps employed when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the present concrete eliminates anomalies and insures the floor sealers attach permanently. We use premium industrial vacuum machines to grab the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with cracks are refloated to the same level as the rest of the floor. This way the polish is completely solid and even.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your option. Any needed patterns are also added at this time. Stains can be heavy, hiding the concrete grain, or light, enabling patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective coat – Floor sealants applied on top of the polished floor fill the pores and highlight the fabulous gloss. These transparent sealers bond to the smoothed surface 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.
Concrete polishing thereby provides the ultimate in decorative durability, for both home and business, while also providing scratch and chemical resistance. This system is easily the best for companies wanting a colorful, tougher, and low-maintenance concrete surface in their industrial or business facility, or for homeowners wanting a decorative floor that is easily maintained.
