Polished Concrete Edwardsville IL is not only aesthetically pleasing but also delivers great value compared to other floor coverings. Polished concrete brings many benefits that traditional flooring types cannot match.
With the way we polish your concrete it is less vulnerable to damage than other flooring options and does not need replacing.
It can withstand heavy foot traffic or light vehicle traffic without the need for waxing.
Like other smooth, non-porous surfaces, polished concrete floors are easy to clean and maintain. Allergens such as dust mites and pollen will not be able to penetrate it and affect the health of your family, customers or staff.
Apart from the cost of installing the floor, polished concrete does not require extensive maintenance, making it cheaper than other flooring types.
The reflective properties of decorative polished concrete floors maximize lighting in any space. Improved ambient lighting lowers energy costs, improves safety and enhances the appearance of your facility. Polished concrete is the way to go if you want to create a bright, clean, and professional image in your Edwardsville IL office, restaurant, hotel, shop or home.
Almost any Edwardsville IL structurally sound concrete slab, old or new, can be polished. New concrete slabs must be fully dried with no moisture trapped inside. Ideally, the concrete has to be at least 28 days old.
We start with grinding the floor mechanically to reveal the stones in the concrete slab and remove any dirt, grime, stails, and old paint and sealers.
The next step is to repair all damage to the floor, from cracks to holes and concrete joints. Some repairs might be visible on the finished floor, but the way we do it, they will be more of an added charm to the floor than an eye sore.
Once the stones are exposed we make many passes over the floor with various diamond grits - starting with lower grits then moving to higher and finer grits.
Once we've done a variety of passes with different diamond grits we then grout any remaining holes and apply a concrete hardener.
When the concrete hardener is fully cured we polish the floor with different resin polishing pads until we reach the desired sheen.
The final step in every polished concrete floor is to clean it, apply a stain guard and burnish your Edwardsville IL concrete floor.
