What is Polished Concrete?
A polished concrete floor is a floor that has undergone a treatment process with an acid solution to achieve the reflective finish. Polished concrete floors are used in the home as well as in commercial buildings.
Concrete polished floors are longer lasting and easier to maintain than other flooring options, such as carpet or tiles, while providing a contemporary look that will enhance the beauty of your home. Polished concrete can be used both indoors and outdoors in living areas.
Polished Concrete Benefits
There are many benefits of using a Polished Concrete floor in your home or commercial property compared to other floor surfaces. They include;
On the flip side, polished concrete floors may be cold underfoot in winter and unsuitable for rooms with high humidity or extensive water features.
Another disadvantage associated with polished concrete floors is that it needs to be done by professionals as it is straightforward to scratch or damage the surface in an amateur setting.
Cost of Polishing Concrete
The cost of polishing a concrete floor is less than that of other surfaces such as tiles, stone or wood, and it is also less labour intensive than laying tiles. Most companies today give a warranty for their work & it is essential to check if the company offering you an estimate provides service after installation.
The costs can vary depending on the type and size of the surface, the severity of damage or cracks on the concrete floor, whether it is polished, dry or wet-polished.
The cost of polished concrete varies depending on the contractor. Still, it generally costs more than solid surfaces like marble and natural stone because they are not as dense and do not have the same life expectancy due to wear and tear.
