When you want your floor to look sparkling, search no further than the concrete polishing technique used by California Custom Coatings in Elk Grove. We polish concrete using modern concrete technology to stain, polish and protect your new colored concrete floor.
The Polished Concrete Process
Here are the usual steps involved when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the existing concrete prevents anomalies and ensures the floor sealers attach permanently. We use quality industrial vacuum equipment to collect the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with deterioration are refloated to the same level as the rest of the floor. This way the polish is totally even and solid.
- Staining – The concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your choice. Any requested patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, hiding the concrete grain, or translucent, enabling patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective layer – Floor sealers applied on top of the polished floor fill the pores and highlight the wonderful gloss. These clear sealers bond to the smooth surface with immense strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For environments where heavy traffic is expected, we apply a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Concrete polishing thus offers the best in decorative durability, for both residences and businesses, while additionally providing scratch and chemical resistance. This technique is easily the best for enterprises wanting a good-looking, tougher, and low-maintenance floor surface in their commercial or industrial facility, or for homeowners wanting a fantastic floor that is easily maintained.
