Polished Concrete is concrete that has been ground with progressively finer grinding tools and treated with a chemical densifier. Stains and dyes are often used to enhance the polished concrete as well as boarders, designs, bands and grids. These, as well as other techniques, can add all sorts of interesting designs to these low maintenance floors.
The benefits of polished concrete are causing it to be an up and coming choice for commercial buildings, offices and warehouses across the country. Polished concrete is a good option because it makes use of materials already present as most modern buildings are build on a concrete slab. If you process the concrete you eliminate the need for installing other types of flooring such a tile, marble, or linoleum. Polished concrete is also non-slippery, reduces dust mites and allergen problems and because it is highly reflective, it reduces lighting needs and provides for more natural light.
Further benefits include durability since it will not chip or dent like softer surface floors such as wood. A concrete floor that has been hardened and polished will have a life expectancy of 100 years or more.
Of all the flooring choices available in todays flooring market, polished concrete is becoming the most popular choice for commercial buildings.
