Our Concrete Polishing Process

How we achieve beautiful results

Polishing concrete takes several steps to achieve beautiful final results. It starts with careful preparation and repair of your concrete substrate to address issues like cracks, spalling, and stains. Next, we apply a special densifying chemical that seals the pores of the concrete and increases the concrete’s surface density. This chemical reacts with the concrete to actually make the surface harder for reduced pitting and a more nonporous surface.
Once the surface is ready, our polished concrete contractors in Detroit, MI use 20-grit rough diamond grinding discs and then successively finer grinding products until your desired finish level is achieved. We also combine concrete grinding and polishing with your choice of stains and saw cutting to create a one-of-a-kind floor. Depending on the stain you choose, we can create mottled, natural-looking effects similar to leather or marble or incredibly bright and vibrant colors in every color of the rainbow.
  • Concrete polishing in Detroit is a cost-effective solution. Polishing turns your concrete into a permanent finished floor system with a very low initial cost.
  • Your interior polished concrete is a permanent solution. Once polished, concrete stays that way. Concrete polishing is an investment that can last a lifetime.
  • It’s easy to maintain with few special care requirements. The concrete polishing process makes your concrete stronger and less porous. This makes it easier to maintain with greater resistance to stains, moisture, and other problems.
  • It brightens your home or business. Polished concrete floors are a popular solution for spaces that need more lighting like basements and garages because the highly reflective surface increases floor brightness.
  • Interior polished concrete delivers a waterproof floor system. When you polish basement concrete floors, you don’t ever need to worry about a flood or moisture damaging your basement floor.
  • It’s attractive and versatile enough for any space. Polished concrete floors can be used almost anywhere. Because it resists stains, chemical damage, and heavy loads, it can be used in many industrial and commercial settings. Stained polished concrete floors are even decorative enough for hotel lobbies, office buildings, restaurants, and other public spaces. Homeowners can also benefit from polished concrete in the basement, garage, or living spaces.
  • Polished concrete is highly customizable. You may appreciate the industrial look of polished concrete or you may want the softness and natural look of stone or leather. You may even want something vibrant, colorful, and completely unique with shades like violet, blue, red, and green. The sky is the limit with polished concrete.

For a truly impressive effect, we recommend a stained and polished concrete floor. This is an affordable way to beautify the concrete floors in your home or business with acid-based or solvent-based stains in your choice of colors. Acid stains are popular because they create a mottled effect in an array of earth tones. These stains work by reacting with the concrete for a permanent variegated appearance. Solvent-based stains, on the other hand, are used to create solid and very bright colors in a much larger variety of colors. These stains can be mixed and matched and even combined with techniques like saw cutting to create interesting patterns, shapes, and effects. Our concrete polishing experts can even mimic the look of other materials like leather and stone.
