fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is polished concrete? 

Polished concrete is produced by grinding the concrete surface with diamonds to reveal or expose the aggregate within the slab (new or existing slab). Further grinding with progressively finer diamonds produces a polished finish. The concrete is then sealed with either a topical sealer or a penetrating sealer depending on the type of finish you want.

What is the difference between polished concrete and honed concrete? 

No. Even though it might have some cracks in it, most cases the concrete is still structurally sound. We seal the cracks and apply our base coat over the top. Your cracks and stains are gone.

Can I have coloured concrete and/or coloured aggregates? 

When you lay a new slab there is a wide range of coloured concretes and coloured aggregates available for you to chose from. These are selected through your builder and/or concrete supplier.

Does polished concrete meet slip standards?
