Concrete Polishing

Recently more and more of our clients are asking us to polish concrete floors. While we have historically done more marble polishing, concrete floor polishing is gaining in popularity and becoming more acceptable in even high end residential settings. The same diamond honing process we use for marble is used to create a smooth, light reflective surface on the concrete – we even use the same machines and the same diamonds! The sealers for concrete are a bit different, though.

The finish can be made to your order, from very glossy to a low luster shine. Unlike marble, concrete can also be tinted, acid stained or dyed to achieve varying color effects. Concrete densifyers are able to strengthen the surface and make it more durable than raw concrete.

It’s more cost effective than other floor treatments, much easier to keep clean than raw concrete and allows you to have a brighter room with more design options than ever before. Now that more and more people have seen the possibilities in restaurants and retail spaces, count on this option to become more common in offices and homes as well. It reduces your carbon footprint and construction delays by not having to buy a floorcovering material and wait for it to be delivered/installed.

The photo is an art gallery we recently honed and sealed for a major university in Cambridge. They said goodbye to their old institutional carpeting, so we removed the carpet, ground the mastic off the concrete, honed it and then later applied a sealer, but they requested it not to have a high gloss, so we used a low luster sealer to lock in color and a low sheen.
