The Advantages of Polished Concrete
Mar 10 , 2021

Polished concrete is probably the most durable and the most cost-effective flooring options. It is dust free, stain-resistant, slip-resistant and easy to maintain. In addition, it has increased light reflectivity.

The life expectancy of a concrete floor will far surpass that of most other flooring surfaces, making it a common choice for retail stores, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, restaurants, schools, hospitals, office buildings, and many more. Polished concrete floors are also becoming more and more popular in residential homes. And it is durable enough for heavy machinery, forklift activity, and extensive foot traffic.

Polished concrete is easy to clean and maintain with no chemicals or waxes required, eliminating the associated labor, time, and expense to apply them. The high light reflectivity of polished concrete is another important benefit which reduces energy cost to light and cool buildings.

Polished concrete floors are generally no slicker than untreated concrete surfaces and are about 40% less slippery than a hardwood floor, waxed linoleum or polished marble.

Polished concrete may be stained, stenciled or engraved to add character and further improve its appearance. It is extremely versatile and customizable and has many other decorative effects.

Some important "Green" benefits of polished concrete include:

  • Reduced construction waste and energy consumption.
  • No toxic chemicals are used which translates in better indoor air quality.
  • Sustainable - Concrete is recognized as a sustainable design material by the US Green Building Council.

In short, polished concrete is a popular flooring solution because of its practical advantages, as well as its decorative appeal.
