Expert Concrete Polishing in Charleston, SC
Considering polished concrete for your industrial or commercial space? The process of polishing concrete not only beautifies your floor, but it also makes it stronger—that is, if the process is done without shortcuts.
What is Real Concrete Polishing?
True concrete polishing is a mechanical process that uses a series of increasingly fine grinding tools to smooth and buff the floor to a hard, glossy surface. The polishing process actually compresses the concrete molecules together for an even denser, harder surface than it started with.
The mark of a real polishing job is that it’s completed in multiple stages, with each stage using a finer grit polishing disc. Each subsequent stage smooths the surface even more until it’s reached the desired level of gloss, up to an almost glass-like reflection.
Here’s a time-lapse video of our crews completing a concrete polishing job at a South Carolina church:
Beware of Shortcuts
Some contractors skip some of the polishing stages and try to artificially create a shine using chemical lacquers or other shortcuts. Not surprisingly, these shining methods don’t typically last long and don’t provide the strengthening benefits of the complete method.
The polishing contractors at CPC Floor Coatings are committed to seeing every job through to completion, even when it requires more labor than taking a shortcut. But the extra effort makes a difference: A floor that’s been polished correctly won’t soon lose its gloss. It may need an occasional re-buffing if exposed to especially heavy foot traffic, but otherwise it can last for several years with normal maintenance.
