Question:

Can I have Coloured Polished Concrete Floors?

 

Answer:

Yes, you can. There are different colours of cement to choose from if you are laying down a new slab. You can discuss your options with your concrete supplier.

 

Question: 

Can I Choose the Aggregate When Laying Down a New Concrete Slab?

 

Answer:

Yes, you can. If you are laying down a new concrete slab, you can choose the colour and there are plenty of aggregate colours, minerals, types, and sizes to choose from for your topping mix. This is also something that you would need to discuss with your concrete supplier.

 

Question: 

If I Don't Like the Exposed Aggregate Look, Are There Any Other Options?

 

Answer:

Yes. The stone or aggregate exposure that shows in the final finish depends on the depth of the grind. If you want a non-exposed aggregate finish, it can easily be achieved.

 

Question: 

Can You Polish an Existing Concrete Slab?

 

Answer:

Yes, you can. If you no longer want the carpeting or the wooden floors in your home, the concrete underneath can be polished to give the floors a contemporary look that is very low maintenance. The final product would hinge on several things, such as the type of concrete currently there, the current state of the concrete floor, the level of damage that has been done to the floor, and the aggregate density.

 

Question: 

What If the Concrete Is In Poor Shape? Can You Do Anything If It Is 75 Years Old and Pitted, If It Is Worn, and If It Has Several Coatings Already Applied?

 

Answer: 

Each of these things would not be a problem. The floor can still be polished and when it is done, it will look like it has a marble finish.

 

Question: 

When Should I Meet With a Concrete Grinder or Concrete Polisher?

 

Answer: 

You should meet with a Concrete Grinder or Concrete Polisher in the very early stages of your project. They can provide an estimate and all of the options available.

 

Question: 

Would there be any harmful Volatile organic compounds?

 

Answer:

No. The process is very green and eco-friendly.

 

Question: 

If I Polished An Outdoor Concrete Floor, Would It Be Slippery?

 

Answer:

No. For outdoor areas, a non-slip coating can be added for outdoor entertaining areas and around the pool.

 

Question: 

Will a Forklift Ruin the Floor?

 

Answer:

No. Any tyre marks can be removed very easily.

 

Question: 

What Is the Process of Grinding and Polishing Concrete?

 

Answer:

On a 200kg concrete grinder, large diamond discs would be mounted. They will be rough enough to remove any imperfections while they flatten the floor at the same time. Next, finer grits are used to polish the floors, resulting in a marble shine. It is typically a 14 step process. It would begin with 30 grit diamond shoes and end with 3,000 grit diamond resin pads.

 

Question: 

How Long Can I Expect It To Last?

 

Answer:

The results would be permanent. The process doesn't include any acrylic, wax, epoxy, or any other coverings that can fail over time. The final result is a concrete floor that has been polished permanently. If the floor is in a commercial building, an industrial building, or in an institution with heavy foot traffic, several years down the road, the floor may need to be repolished. This is not very costly.  

 

Question:

Is It Possible To Destroy The Shine?

 

Answer:

Yes, it is possible, but it is not easy. Muriatic acid can etch the concrete floor. The same is true with strong acids. These areas, however, can be repaired very easily.

 

Question: 

Is the Process Dirty, Dusty, Or Messy?

 

Answer:

No. State of the art equipment would be used which makes the entire process practically dust free.

 

Question: 

Where can I see some finished Polished Concrete Floors?

 

Answer:

These floors are found in a variety of places including residential homes, schools, retail stores, restaurants, showrooms, and manufacturing buildings.
