Sometimes you need more than a concrete repair and desire more than a simple change in color and texture. Perhaps you would like your concrete floor to look sparkling, reflecting beauty like a mirror. West Coast Epoxy can not only stain and seal your concrete floor, but we can go even further and give it a glossy shine with concrete polishing.
The Concrete Polishing Process
Here are the usual steps employed when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the current concrete prevents blemishes and guarantees the floor sealers stick permanently. We use quality 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 solid.
- Staining – The concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your selection. Any wanted patterns are also added at this time. Stains can be heavy, covering the concrete grain, or translucent, allowing patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealers applied on top of the polished floor fill the pores and emphasize the impressive gloss. These clear sealers bond to the smoothed-out concrete with terrific strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For locations where heavy traffic is common, we can lay down a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing thus provides the best in decorative durability, for both home and business, while also lending scratch and chemical resistance. This method is best for enterprises wanting a beautiful, enduring, and low-maintenance floor surface in their business or industrial facility, or for homeowners wanting an impressive floor that is simply maintained.
