When you want your floor to be glossy, search no further than the concrete polishing systems used by West Coast Epoxy in Tracy. We use the latest concrete technology to stain, polish, and then protect your brand-new colored concrete floor.
How We Polish Concrete
Here are the typical steps involved when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the existing concrete prevents anomalies and guarantees the floor sealers attach permanently. We use top shelf industrial vacuum machinery to remove the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with deterioration, cracks, or faults are refloated to the same level as the rest of the concrete. This way the polish is 100 percent flat.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your choosing. Any requested patterns are also added at this time. Stains can be heavy, obscuring the concrete grain, or light, allowing patterns in the concrete to show through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealants applied over the polished floor fill the pores and highlight the wonderful gloss. These clear sealers bond to the smoothed concrete with considerable strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For environments where heavy traffic is expected, we apply a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing offers the perfect balance of decorative durability, for both businesses and homes, while additionally lending scratch and chemical resistance. This system is recommended for businesses wanting a beautiful, tougher, and low-maintenance floor surface in their industrial or commercial facility, as well as for homeowners wanting an amazing floor that’s readily maintained.
