What is Polished Concrete Floor

One-time process, that is trendy, cost effective with zero downtime to install.

Concrete is one thing that's available in every single residential, commercial or industrial building. Factor in the superior durability and performance of concrete, and it's no wonder why retail, commercial warehouse, office facilities, and homeowners are turning to the appeal of these smooth, sustainable, easy to maintain, and high-luster floors.

Polished concrete is created by a multi-step process that includes mechanically grinding and honing the concrete and then polishing it using diamond discs to cut the surface of the concrete floor. Refined cuts are used to get the desired amount of shine and stone exposure.

Benefits of rGV's Polished Concrete

Decorative polished concrete floors offer several advantages that other flooring materials can't match, particularly when it comes to durability, performance, and sustainability. With its clean and modern look, polished concrete is becoming the preferred flooring solution for commercial, industrial, and residential environments.

Durable and long lasting

At RGV Concrete stain we use concrete hardener when polishing your concrete. This makes your concrete slab more durable and less vulnerable to damage and heavy traffic. As the concrete slab is part of your building, it will not require replacing as other flooring options do.

Concrete Dusting

Unpolished concrete is usually porous, which results in concrete dusting when there is wear and tear. The dusting is essentially the concrete material breaking down in fine powder, which can be seen building up in cracks, seams, and dents. The dust is not only a nuisance and a health hazard, but can also affect the performance of delicate equipment and manufactured goods. Polishing your floors greatly reduces dusting and wear and tear.

Improve Reflectivity and Ambient Lighting

The reflective properties of decorative polished concrete floor maximize lighting in any space. Improved ambient lighting reduces energy bills, increases safety, and casts your facility in the best possible light. If you want to project a bright, clean and professional image in your office, restaurant, hotel, shop, or home, polished concrete is the floor to go to.

Cost saving

Using the concrete slab as your finished floor is more cost-saving than traditional flooring options. You don't require any floor covering materials, which reduces your maintenance cost substantially.

Easy to clean/maintain

With its smooth glass-like surface, polished concrete won't harbor any dust, dirt, or allergens, making it easy to clean, requiring only occasional damp mopping. Polished concrete flooring also eliminates the need for waxes or coatings as well as the associated labor, time, and expense of applying them. The glossy surface of polished concrete resists the marks of forklift truck tires and staining from oil and chemical spills.

Available in different colors and level of sheen

With the smooth, reflective surface of decorative polished concrete, you can choose the level of rocks exposed, the level of sheen (from satin to high-gloss), and even a ray of different colors.
Stains and dyes are the most popular application for enhancing already existing polished concrete.

How RGV Concrete Stain Polish your concrete

Turn your dusty concrete slab, into a fabulous floor with zero downtime to install.

Almost any structurally sound concrete floor can be polished, no matter new or old. There are a few exceptions for new concrete floors, where the slab should be in place for at least 28 days, to ensure the concrete mixture has properly dried.

We start with mechanically diamond grinding the floor to reveal the stone in the concrete. We then do concrete repairs to fill in any cracks and holes.
After the concrete slab is repaired and the stone exposed, we make many passes over the floor using a variety of grits. We then fill up any remaining gaps and cracks with concrete grout, before finishing the first step with concrete hardener and allowing it to cure overnight.

Once it is cured, we move on to resign pads and begin polishing the concrete to the desired sheen using series of grids.
The final step is to clean up, apply a stain guard and burnish the floor.

Can I do polished concrete in my garage?

FAQ question arrow
Yes, you can, but be prepared to clean and maintain your polished concrete almost on a daily basis.
You need to take the following into consideration.
Car tires track much more dirt, debris and sandy grit, which can grind off the shine over time. Tires can de-gloss the finish over time in the areas where they consistently roll over in and out of the garage.
Polished concrete stain guards break down if exposed to solvents or chemicals for a long period of time. If not maintained well they will loose their luster.

If you love the look of polished concrete, you can achieve similar effect with epoxy flake, which is more durable for use in car garages.
