Shaping up to be the trend of choice for almost any application, from garage floors and warehouses to in the home and kitchen floors, polished concrete offers versatility and durability that is hard to look past.

The 2 Types of Polished Concrete Floors

We use tried and tested processes in order to get the look you want. Our finished results are a strong, great looking, easy to clean and low maintenance floor available in matte, semi-gloss and gloss finishes. 

There are type types of concrete polishing available:

1. Mechanically Polished Concrete (MPC)

MPC is a premium solution which leaves your concrete smooth and glossy.

Polished concrete is a process that takes abrasives (diamonds) and mechanically places scratches in the concrete.

We typically grind the concrete surface with a heavy, high torque machine using varying levels of coarse to fine diamond segments.

The grinding machinery used is accompanied by a dustless vacuum system which creates a clean, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly process.

If you are living in or around the greater Brisbane area, contact Trent about mechanical polished concrete solutions on 0423 080 270.

2. Grind and Seal Polished Concrete (Concrete Grinding)

Grind and seal polished concrete is a budget-friendly alternative to mechanically polished concrete (MPC). Concrete grinding removes any surface contaminants and exposes the aggregate.

The finished product has a similar look to MPC but the shine or gloss is from the sealer only. When you have a large space and want to dress things up on a budget this is a great option.

With any sealed floor, the topcoat is sacrificial – these floors will require maintenance. The general rule of thumb for the lifespan of a coated floor is 5-6 years. After this time the surface will need to be re-sealed.

We offer a large range of suitable sealers including solvent and water-based options. Read more about our concrete sealing services here.

Residential Polished Concrete

Whether you're building a new home or doing renovations, you will need to consider your flooring options.

Residential polished concrete floors are increasing in popularity for kitchens, bathrooms and garages. Polished concrete is low maintenance, easy to clean and allergy friendly.

Plus, it looks great!

A glossier polish will be more reflective and make the room brighter, or you can opt for a matte finish if you prefer.  

Commercial Polished Concrete Flooring

There are many commercial applications for polished concrete reatil floors, from large warehouses to department stores, workshops, offices and commercial kitchens.

A long lasting, cost-effective and low maintenance option, polished concrete flooring is resistant to spills and stains, hard wearing and high quality.

Honed Concrete vs Polished Concrete Floor

Concrete honing and concrete polishing are sometimes mistakenly considered the same thing but there is a difference.

Honed concrete undergoes a concrete grinding process but not to the same refined state as a mechnaically polished concrete floor. A sealant is then placed over the concrete as a barrier. This will eventually wear down and will need to be sanded back and then a new sealant applied.

The difference doesn't just end there.

Polished concrete is a premium flooring option because it is much more refined. It incorporates grouting process and the use of chemical hardeners which improve the floors appearance and durability.
