Concrete Polishing in Orange County and Los Angeles
Concrete polishing is the perfect choice if you desire a beautiful, long-lasting, and low-maintenance concrete floor! Because polishing is a multi-step process, our customers can choose the level of polish that meets their maintenance and aesthetic requirements. This versatility makes polished concrete an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications.
Polished concrete is the process of grinding down the surface of concrete, much like sanding wood, to get a very smooth finish. When you grind enough of the concrete surface, you reveal the natural elements in the concrete called aggregate, or the stones and gravel used in the cement. The variation of aggregate makes for a unique floor, no two polished concrete will ever look exactly the same. While traditional stained concrete covers your existing concrete with harmful epoxies, polished concrete reveals the natural beauty from within and thus creates a lasting product without needing reapplications of products as you would with unpolished stained concrete
It’s hard to imagine that a heavily-used, old concrete floor can be turned into a beautiful polished floor that will last for years with minimal maintenance – but that is what we do! Aesthetically pleasing finishes on these floors are long lasting, easy to maintain, and a great fit for any commercial floor. These floors are even capable of supporting extremely heavy forklift traffic.
Commercial Concrete Polishing
United Concrete Coating & Repair, Inc. offers concrete staining and polishing for offices and warehouses as well. Having commercial floors stained and polished makes them easy to clean and incredibly durable. The glossy, reflective finish of polished concrete floors adds luster to your commercial space.
Benefits of polished concrete for commercial use:
- Resistant to high foot traffic. Polished concrete floors are very durable and is ideal for lobbies, retail spaces, gyms, offices, or showrooms.
- Less maintenance and longer life: Polished floors are easy to clean, requiring only occasional damp mopping. They also eliminate the need for messy waxes or coatings as well as the associated labor, time, and expense to apply them. The glossy surface of polished concrete resists the marks of forklift truck tires and staining from oil and chemical spills.
- Resistant to moisture transmission issues: Polished concrete allows the floor to breathe and eliminates issues that arise with other flooring materials that seal off the concrete, such as tile.
- High light reflectivity: Important for office building floors, hotels, restaurants, and other public facilities that want to project a bright, clean, professional image. This also saves energy by reducing artificial lighting requirements
