Traditional floor coverings often require adhesives that emit VOCs into the atmosphere over time, reducing the indoor air quality. Earth-friendly building with concrete can provide thermal mass and improve light reflectivity. Concrete also can conserve resources because it's made mostly from recycled materials.
Polished concrete has proven valuable to builders as a sustainable building practice.
Polished concrete floors are easy to clean, sometimes requiring damp mopping. They eliminate the need for messy waxes – as well as the expensive labor to apply them. Properly maintained polished concrete resists marks from forklift tires and staining from oils. Polished floors are not as vulnerable to damage as other materials and do not need replacing.
We'll soon offer maintenance packages featuring approved products and instructions.
While polished concrete floors are not maintenance-free, they are easier to maintain than other types of hard flooring, since they require no sealers.
Traditional, non-polished concrete is porous, dull & is vulnerable to debris & chemicals.
Polished concrete beautifully reflects light. The resulting surface better resists debris.
Polishing is a multi-step process. Therefore, home or business owners can choose the level of sheen that meets their aesthetic preference. This versatility makes polished concrete an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications.
Polishing gives concrete a higher degree of shine – similar to polished marble or granite. This makes polished concrete a particularly good alternative for homeowners or businesses that can't afford marble or granite floors but want the same brilliant, mirror-like finish. To replicate the color of stone, Concrete Expressions applies color to the concrete during the polishing process.
There are numerous benefits to polished concrete, including durability, appearance and lower maintenance cost.
