Sometimes you require more than a concrete repair or a simple change in color or texture. You might like your concrete floor to look sparkling, reflecting light like a mirror. California Custom Coatings can definitely stain and preserve your concrete floor, but we can go even further and give it a glass-like shine with concrete polishing.
How We Polish Concrete
Here are the typical steps employed when polishing concrete:
- Grinding – A strong grind of the existing concrete prevents abnormalities and ensures the floor sealers attach permanently. We use premium industrial vacuum machinery to grab the dust produced during the grind.
- Leveling – Areas with faults or deterioration are refloated to the same level as the rest of the floor. This way the polish is 100 percent flat.
- Staining – Your concrete floor is infused, not just coated, with a color stain of your selection. Any needed patterns are also added at this step. Stains can be heavy, covering the concrete grain, or light, enabling patterns in the concrete to shine through like polished wood.
- Transparent protective coat – Floor sealants applied over the polished floor fill the pores and emphasize the impressive gloss. These transparent sealers bond to the smoothed out surface with terrific strength, creating a floor that is very low maintenance. For areas where heavy traffic is common, we use a thicker coat of protective sealers to compensate.
Once concrete polishing is completed, your shiny, colorful floors are essentially guarded from stains, wear and scratching. Cleaning is easier, needing far less care than linoleum, wood or carpet. California Custom Coatings provides concrete polishing for floors in residential properties and business or industrial buildings of all kinds and sizes.
