Concrete polishing is a great solution to your flooring problems. With concrete polishing there is no coating to fail or fade. You will no longer have chipping and delaminating epoxy and urethane coatings on your concrete floor. Concrete polishing is also very visually striking, whether you are looking for small or large aggregate; with the right contractor, concrete polishing will turn your dull, gray concrete floor into a work of art.
Most modern buildings are built on a concrete slab, concrete polishing the exposed concrete eliminates the energy and material consumed by applying floor coverings every couple of years. Concrete Polishing is something to consider when building or modernizing towards a more green solution.
Concrete floor polishing is a long lasting, low maintenance solution that will harden the actual surface of your concrete floor, eliminating the need for coatings and sealers. There is no need for the additional costs of replacing floor coverings after concrete polishing.
From garage floors to show rooms, concrete polishing will improve the look and functionality of your building.

Not typically; in a residential setting the small square footages and lack of appropriate voltage for the grinders makes it very expensive.
No, big box stores do not have polished floors in the true definition. Concrete polishing is a system that removes the top layer of concrete exposing the aggregate, a Lithium Silicate Densifier is then applied to increase impact strength and then the floor is polished. Concrete polishing is a 9 set process when done properly, the big box stores only have the last 3 steps done in their facilities. You floor will not look like Lowes, it will look better.
