Polished Concrete Garage Floor in Schaumburg

Polished concrete is a cost-effective and attractive concrete solution for garage floors, patios, basements, and other concrete areas of homes and businesses near Barrington and Round Lake. Polishing concrete provides durable surfaces that are easy to maintain and last up to four times longer than traditional concrete coatings such as epoxy.

 

Can existing concrete be polished?

Absolutely! Polishing concrete is a great way to improve the look of concrete that’s already been laid. It can turn ordinary concrete into a beautiful and long-lasting work of art. Concrete polishing creates smooth surfaces that are easy to wipe down with minimal effort. This makes concrete polished floors ideal for garages, basements, patios, and other areas where dirt and debris tend to accumulate quickly. Polished concrete solutions are also more cost effective than traditional concrete coatings such as epoxy. Polishing concrete can be done relatively quickly and at a fraction of the cost of having new concrete poured. This type of concrete solution is also an eco-friendly option because it requires fewer chemicals than other concrete coatings and does not produce any toxic waste. In addition, polished concrete floors can improve the value of a property by creating eye-catching surfaces that will last for years to come.

 

How does concrete polishing work?

Concrete polishing is a multi-step process that involves grinding concrete surfaces with special diamond-impregnated pads, followed by the application of concrete densifiers and sealers. This process can take 10-15 steps depending on the quality of the concrete we are working on. Much like sanding and preparing wood for finishing we use many different grinding pads that slowly remove the rough existing concrete and then continue using different finer grinding pads to bring the finish to a nice luster and shine. We can hone and polish concrete to achieve the needs of our clients whether that is a matte or semi-glossy surface to extremely wet-looking polished concrete.

 

How long does it take to polish concrete?

The concrete polishing process typically takes one to three days depending on the size of the area and the conditions of the concrete. It’s important to remember that concrete polishing is a multi-step process, which includes grinding, honing, and sealing. Each step requires its own set of steps in order for it to be done properly and last as long as possible. Our team can explain the process and length of the project when we do our free estimate and review of the job.

 

What is the best way to maintain polished concrete?

The best way to maintain polished concrete is by regularly cleaning and dusting the surfaces. Regular sweeping and mopping can help keep concrete looking its best for longer. We also recommend using a neutral cleaner designed specifically for concrete, as this will not harm the concrete or sealer. Additionally, it’s important to avoid abrasive cleaners and scrubbing pads when cleaning polished concrete, as this can damage the concrete surface.
