Concrete polishing is an excellent alternative to conventional flooring products and coatings.
Benefits of Concrete Polishing
From a design perspective, concrete provides a limitless canvas on which dyes and stains can be used to create the foundation for any space.
From a durability and maintenance perspective, the process of polishing and densification brings out the hardness of stone combined with the benefits of cleaning a smooth surface.
When installed correctly, polished concrete can perfectly compliment interior design elements. Dyes, stains, acids, and other treatment options can be used to add everything from a touch of warmth to a dose of modern reality
The polishing and densification process results in a surface so durable that our machines use diamonds (hardest known natural substance on both Vickers and Mohs hardness scale) to create a floor that will resist foot and machinery traffic longer than traditional flooring options
Compared to many traditional flooring products, like tile and wood, polished concrete has fewer pores to absorb dirt; this results in an easier clean. In addition, the densification process hardens the surface so it will not wear and damage as easily as traditional flooring products
The installation costs of polished concrete is approximately half to one-third of the cost of traditional coatings and improves the overall quality of the floor.
Traditional flooring costs include: subfloor, finished flooring, installation and maintenance. Polished concrete eliminates the cost of purchasing flooring product as well as significantly reducing cleaning and repair costs. In short, your concrete floor will cost less and last longer.
A Brighter Alternative
Polished concrete has high reflectivity of light, so your floor doesn’t absorb your electricity bill. Increased light is an important ingredient in creating a safe, clean, and professional work environment.

Shot blasting is a process in which steel shot is propelled at high velocities toward a concrete, asphalt, or steel surface within a contained unit. This process is used to prepare surfaces for adhesion of epoxy, resin, self-level, and other coating materials.
Diamond Grinding is a process in which grinding machines use metal or resin discs embedded with diamonds to abrasively remove concrete material. Much like sand paper, diamond discs come in various grits ranging from 6 to 3,000; grinding typically refers to lower grit discs while polishing refers to higher grits.
Concrete repair is a broad term but generally includes the repair of cracking, spalling, chipping, and broken concrete. Depending on the type of repair, epoxy, concrete mix, spall-crete, and many other products may be used to best restore the aesthetics and/or the functionality of the surface being repaired.
The concrete exposure process refers to the depth of the concrete grind. Concrete Reflections Inc. has extensive experience in consulting with concrete providers to ensure the aggregate used in a new pour will yield the desired design at the finished stage of your new project.
Concrete finishes are different from exposure; exposure deals with the depth of the grind, whereas finishes deals with the sheen of the polish. The concrete finishing process is dependent on the densifier used as well as the grit of the final polish. The higher the quality of the densifier and higher the grit of the diamond discs, the higher the floor sheen.
Dyes & Stains
Concrete dying and staining is a process in which dyes, stains, and acids are applied to a concrete surface prior to sealing the concrete. These products can enhance the natural look of concrete while incorporating the overall design of your space.
The cleaning process for most floors includes harsh chemicals, waxes, and specialized cleaning equipment. Most of the time our floors can simply be cleaned with water, however more difficult spills or stains may require the use of a cleaner. Our cleaning supplies are water based and specifically engineered to keep flooring looking its best while removing difficult stains.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (“LEED”) is a standard that is used to measure the environmental and energy performance of buildings. LEED certification provides for third-party verification that a building benefits people, planet, and profitability.

During the course of construction there will often be machinery and equipment on site that would not normally be placed on the finished flooring. Once the final stages of the polishing process are completed a protective flooring system can be adhered to the concrete until all other trades have completed their work.
