concrete_polishing_melbourneHaving a polished concrete finish for your home or business definitely gives off an elegant veneer that is cost-efficient and highly durable.

As such, trusting a company to render the best-polished concrete services is more relevant than ever.

What is concrete polishing?

Polished concrete is a process of step-by-step grinding and polishing of bonded abrasives in order to achieve a certain level of gloss on the surface. This includes the process of using chemical densifiers to fill in any gaps in your concrete and integrating varieties of colour and patterns to fit any desired outcome for your polished flooring.

How much does concrete polishing cost?

The cost for concrete polishing ranges from $50 to $100 per square metre. The price depends on the method used. The grind and seal method starts at $50 per square metre, while the honed polishing method starts at $75 per square metre. Opting for the mechanical approach would involve precision and heavy equipment and cost around $100 per square metre.

What are the factors that affect the cost of concrete polishing?

#1. Colour of the concrete. Concrete polishing costs less if only a single colour will be used and will increase the cost if multiple colours are added.

#2. Gloss or shine level. The level of shine affects the concrete polishing steps. The glossier the finish, the more steps will be needed to perform concrete polishing, which will incur additional costs.

#3. Size of the property. The total area influences the entire overall cost. However, larger spaces can decrease the price per square metre.

#4. Existing floor. Additional fees will be incurred if the current flooring needs to be removed. If the floor is covered with linoleum or is currently carpeted, there is a need to remove the glue. This will add costs to the surface preparation.

#5. Condition of the existing floor. There is a need to repair holes, cracks, and gouges in the existing surface before the start of the concrete polishing process.

How long does it take to polish concrete?

It depends. If you have a more complicated or larger area, the polishing process can take up to 2-3 days. However, you can use the polished concrete surface immediately once the polishing process is done. For other instances, the level of polishing and the amount of preparation done to your concrete floor may affect the duration of finishing the polished concrete process.

Can Any Concrete Be Polished?

Structurally, almost any concrete can be polished. This means whether you have an old concrete or a new one, it can be subject to polishing. However, it is worth noting that certain factors may vary if you want to polish a new or an existing one. Polishing new concrete usually is not confronted with suitability issues. With an existing one, preparatory work may be needed such as removing old coatings or apparent dirt.

What is the best way to polish concrete?

#1. Remove concrete’s existing coatings. This part requires a 16-grit diamond, 20-grit diamond, or other specialised tools for this part.

#2. Seal joints. Use epoxy or a semi-rigid filler to seal all cracks and joints.

#3. Start grinding. Use a metal-bonded 30 or 40-grit diamond. Continue doing this using an 80-grit metal-bonded diamond.

#4. Continue grinding. Shift to a 150-grit metal-bonded diamond.

#5. Densify concrete. Use a chemical hardener to the concrete flooring to densify the concrete.

#6. Polish. Use a 100 or 200-grit diamond to polish. Continue by using a 400-grit resin-bond diamond. Move further with an 800-grit diamond. Final polishing should use a 1500 or 3000-grit resin-bond diamond.

How Long Does Polished Concrete Last?

If you have your concrete polished through professional help, and you are equipped with an effective maintenance plan, plus occasional cleaning, a polished concrete floor can last up to 20 years or more.

What is the difference between polished concrete and epoxy?

Here are a few notes on the difference between polished concrete and epoxy:

#1. As to appearance, polished concrete gives you a smooth look achieved by the grinding of the surface and polishing the same according to the desired finish. An epoxy flooring has a more glossy look due to a resin finish.

#2. As for durability, polished concrete does not easily scratch as compared to epoxy flooring due to the former’s more intricate installation process that requires a polishing machine.

How do I choose the right polished concrete?

Choosing the right polished concrete for your property is as important as the benefits it entails. Here are a few things you need to consider in order to choose the right polished concrete:

#1. Hire licensed and professional polished concrete experts

#2. Know the amount of experience of the company that you hired

#3. Get to know the quality of the products needed for polishing concrete

#4. Assess the structure and technical description of your property

#5. Ask for expert advice on the types of facilities that need polished concrete floors
