LOOKING FOR POLISHED & EPOXY FINISHES?
Maintaining a polished concrete finish is quite simple. Just dust mop on a regular basis, and use a pH neutral floor cleaner every so often. Though maintenance is easy, it should not be bypassed. Failure to clean your polished concrete floors on a regular basis can cause them to accumulate dust, grit, grime, and grease, which will eventually take a toll on the floor’s appearance.
Epoxy floor coatings are a two-part mixture of resins and hardeners. It is rolled onto the existing concrete in multiple layers to create seamless stretches of flooring that withstand grease, moisture, scuffing, and chemicals.
Similar to polishing a concrete floor, the amount of time it takes to apply an epoxy coating depends largely on how big the area is, but a standard two-car garage takes about two to three days from start to finish.

Polished concrete is fast becoming the ultimate no-wax flooring material. Thanks to recent advances in polishing equipment and techniques, contractors are now grinding concrete floor surfaces, whether new or old, to a high-gloss finish that never needs waxes or coatings. Factor in the superior durability and performance of concrete, and it’s no wonder why more retail, warehouse, and office facilities are opting for polished concrete flooring as an alternative to marble, granite, tile, linoleum, or coated concrete. Even homeowners are catching on to the appeal of these smooth, high-luster floors, which can be stained to replicate the look of polished stone.
