Polished Concrete floors have been around for centuries in many countries and unfortunately Australians have missed out on this opportunity and its undiscovered beauty until now. Any concrete slab can be polished regardless of age . It does not require any acid agents to prepare the surface. The preparation consists of grinding with diamond stones liquefied in water and a neutral cleaner. Our complete diamond stone grids range from 6 and up to 5000, depending on the finish you require, whether it is a high or low sheen. Our process of polishing concrete will continue to keep the dust off your property. Dust is thoroughly vacuumed throughout the whole process keeping your concrete and property tidy. In addition the Dust is also removed.
In worst case scenario where aged concrete has been worn out and saturated with divots, this requires an underlay, (self leveler). This repairs the substraight voids followed by the polishing process. If you’re planning a new concrete pour, we recommend you contact us as soon as possible. Some Concrete contractors do not have the tweaking skills required for concrete polishing floors and or alternative finishes. There are many variables to be considered prior to a fresh pour and architects and designers need to be informed. “Don’t wait till it’s to late” Ask our advice right away. Don’t regret your choice as polished concrete can not be reversed once it has been poured.
Many refer to polished concrete as slippery, cold and high maintenance. In recent times this has all changed as new knowledge has been discovered through trial and error. Polished concrete is no more slippery than the average tile on the market is also can range slip resistance. Our exclusive steps are merged into the process of polishing showers, bath and high moister area’s. This has become more slip proof than any other flooring option. An impregnated sealer is used to be highly permeable into the concrete pours leaving a scour finish that acts as an anti slip surface and retaining the inspiring looks.
Typical sealers are no longer used in the process of polished concrete as the temperature of the slab tends to hold thermal mass within. The first step is a penetrating sealer that seals and closes all the pours, reducing the temperature rising to the surface. A shield coat is then applied to protect mechanical and chemical damage and avoid re-sealing. The final buffing upholds the three dimensional looks, shine and durability that has the hard wearing resistance and can be reapplied in years without the removal of any sealers.
