Polished Concrete in Raleigh, NC
Our favorite type of decorative finish hands down. This type of surface is on the cutting edge in the design world; not simply for its beauty and versatility but also as a part of the green movement. The cost-effectiveness and durability of polished concrete surpasses tile, vinly, carpet, etc. No harsh chemicals need to be used in sealing the finished floor or in cleaning it. This is a marriage of industrctablity and beauty.
A great feature of this surface is that it can replace any existing flooring in both commercial and residential properties, as long as concrete is beneath the old covering. Polished floors are simple design elements on a new build. We can work with you builder, and arrange to have special stone, glass or metal pieces added to the "mud" to show case even more beauty when polished.
This is a labor intensive process much like sanding wood flooring. We work our way through different diamond grits which slowly polishes the concrete to the desired sheen level.
Color and Polishing grit options:
These floors can be a simple industrial finished floors, or they can be polished clear down to expose the large aggregate within the concrete, giving it theappearance of terrazzo.
Another thing we love about the versatility of this option is the concrete can be colored nearly any hue with the pour (new construction) or during the polishing process (existing sites).
