It is a known fact that concrete has always had a reputation for being durable and for its cost-effective features. Nevertheless, with modern technologies, it has been found that concrete alone is known for its creative possibilities. The best example of that is polished concrete which can have a wonderful and intriguing appearance. When you think about the performance and durability of concrete, it’s no surprise why more office, retail, and warehouse facilities are showing a preference in having polished concrete flooring as an alternative to granite, marble, tile, linoleum, or even concrete that is coated.

Even homeowners are starting to have polished concrete floors in their homes because again, it is durable and has a striking appearance.

Rochester Concrete Prep offers high quality concrete polishing services. Our technicians use stains during the process which can be used to change the appearance and color of the polished floor. There are also different levels of shine or degree of reflectivity that can be achieved by grinding to higher levels if that is what you choose to have done.

Polished concrete floors are incredibly economical, strong and are traffic-friendy. The great thing about concrete flooring is that unlike other types of flooring, polished concrete floors can last over 10 years or more without needing to be refinished. That is why it is so cost-effective. It is also important to know that maintaining a polished floor is minimal, so the costs are reduced and all that needs to be done is to have the floors cleaned on a regular basis.

Polished concrete floors also have a lower maintenance schedule, and meets and even exceeds all standards when it comes to environmental efficiency, and is eco-friendly as well. That is because it has no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) .

However, it is important to realize that the polishing process exposes some of the imperfections in the concrete, and it can also produce rustic-looking results. That being said, polished concrete must fit the character of the space you are using it for or else you will not be happy with it. You will see the natural qualities of the concrete, with areas of coarser aggregate and unevenness of the aggregate and veins. And at the same time, many people say this is one of the most appealing characteristics of having polished concrete because it has a natural appearance.
