Wet and Dry Concrete Polishing in Charlotte
The process of concrete polishing implements a series of increasingly fine grinding tools to smooth and buff the floor to a hard, glossy surface. It’s completed in multiple stages, and may be completed “dry” (which uses water between stages but not during the polishing itself) for a high-gloss shine, or “wet” (which uses water throughout to create a dust-free environment) for a low-luster shine. Read more about the differences between dry and wet polishing.
Both wet and dry concrete polishing methods compress the concrete molecules to increase the floor’s density and durability.
Below is a time-lapse video of our crews polishing the concrete floor using the dry method. Note how the appearance of the floor changes after each step:
Concrete Stains and Dye
Polished concrete looks beautiful in its natural grey color, but that’s not the only shade available. You’ll find a wide variety of dyes and stains available, from neutrals to rich jewel tones. An experienced contractor can also use staining techniques to create wave patterns, marbling effects, and more. Learn more about concrete staining options.

“Safety before Sales” mentality
Polished concrete is safe for most industry and commercial applications. (For example, despite its glossy appearance, it’s rarely slippery, even when wet.) However, there are a few environments that it’s not well suited for. If we don’t believe concrete polishing is right for your situation, we’ll recommend a safer option, such as a slip-resistant coating, even if it’s a less expensive service. We are more concerned about your safety than our making a profit, and we’ll always straightforward about what’s best for your interests.
