Yet another tantalizing option for concrete finishing is polishing.
Polished concrete has the major advantage of needing little to no maintenance for its life – meaning you’ll be set for decades with a smooth, glossy, and aesthetically pleasing concrete surface.
The reflectiveness of the surface means a better lit room. It also brings far more depth to it.
Moreover, the polishing can be done on just about any existing concrete surface without needing to build on top of it, with no need to replace or reinstall any portion of your floor.
How Long Will Polished Concrete Floors Last?
Polished concrete has a very long life cycle. When properly maintained and installed, this type of flooring system can last up to 20 years with little risk for any common damages that would ruin other types of flooring in homes across America.
Are Polished Concrete Floors Slippery?
Polished concrete floors are not only attractive but provide a high degree of slip resistance, even when wet. And although not 100% slip-resistant, this still makes them an excellent choice for homeowners and businesses that may suffer from costly accidents due to slipping.
