Polished concrete consists of a series of mechanically driven processes of grinding & polishing that are repeated until the floor is flawlessly smooth. This process includes a hardener that penetrates the concrete to provide an extremely durable surface. It is actually considered a sustainable flooring design because it utilizes material that is already there. Houses are typically built with a concrete foundation so transforming that foundation to a beautifully finished product will be a breeze when you are building your home. The high gloss & smooth finish of polished concrete makes it a very low maintenance floor that you will never have to wax. Stains can be added to give it a little extra character!
