Polished Concrete is one of the most durable, and reflective flooring finishes. But achieving that level of sheen is challenging when the existing slab is coated.
Firstly, polished concrete utilizes the existing concrete slab. Which can be great for new facilities. It eliminates the need for epoxy coatings or trowel applied material.
And when the concrete slab is new, it would be very easy to polish the floor. But when the slab is old, coated, and deteriorated, then the entire process will require much more detail and workmanship.
When a customer wants to polish a coated floor, then the challenge starts with the site visit. Because it’s impossible to know how hard or soft the concrete is when it’s coated. And without this information, the applicators won’t know which grinding bonds to use when polishing.
