There are several other benefits of polished concrete floors. These floors are seamless and dust-free. They are also anti-slip, water resistant, stain resistant, hypoallergenic and light reflective.

Types of Polished Concrete Floors
As aforementioned, concrete polishing involve sanding away the top blemishes from your floor. The final result is a glossy concrete surface with various desirable properties. Polishing require skill and patience. It takes a lot of time to turn the coarse texture of rock and cement binders into a smooth glossy surface that reflects all the light. The process involves using concrete densifiers and sealers to protect and harden the surface. There are several types of polished concrete surfaces achievable since each project is unique. They generally fall under three main categories including;
Cream Polish (High Gloss)
The level of sheen in polished concrete ranges from mate to glossy depending on the diamond grit used for lapping. Cream is basically the smoothest polished concrete surface achievable. It boasts the best sheen consistency and can be colored too. Cream polish also adheres to colors and dyes vey easily.
Semi-Gloss (Salt & Pepper)
While cream is the smoothest polished concrete, most people install salt and pepper polish. It is the one you will find in most residential homes and commercial outlets in Northwest Arkansas. This polish is very easy to achieve and does not present any problems adhering to colors or stain. It can create a unique look that is easy to clean and maintain although small cracks are often visible in the final product.
Although not as popular as cream or salt and pepper, aggregate polish can result in desirable flooring when done by experts. It is basically the hardest to accomplish and involves extra processes. Aggregate polished concrete floor are also the most expensive.
There is no single best type of polished concrete; it all depends on your preference, needs and purpose. In some rare cases, the amount of damage may determine the type of polish to achieve. For instance, projects that involve grinding away the coatings and glue cannot achieve a cream polish. You can call us for any inquiries or question about our concrete services including polishing.
