While it may be simple to give your concrete features little thought after they have been installed, ensuring that they are properly maintained can have many positive effects. At Black Diamond Concrete Solutions, we are more than happy to educate you on the benefits of polished concrete in Winnipeg.
Benefits of Concrete Polishing
Stain-resistant: By densifying and sealing the surface, polished concrete transforms a porous concrete floor into a tightened floor that is dense enough to repel water, oil and other spills, preventing them from penetrating the surface.
Increased light reflectivity: Polished surfaces will catch and reflect even small amounts of light much more effectively on a worn surface. With increased reflectivity, it will be much easier to see the edges of pathways of your concrete surface.
Durability: Polished floors resist forklift truck tire marks and also reduce the wear and tear of the tires substantially. Your surface will also get degraded over time with exposure to rain, sun, snow and ice. Polishing your concrete will increase its strength and prevent cracks and brakes from forming for a long period of time. Additionally, in certain polishing processes, a top layer of concrete is actually removed, getting rid of a weathered surface to expose the strong aggregate beneath.
Cost effective: Polished concrete does not need to be repaired as frequently as unpolished concrete surfaces. This has the positive effect of reducing maintenance and energy costs while prolonging the life of your concrete.
Aesthetically-pleasing: A polished concrete floor with a beautiful and natural finish will enhance light reflectivity and make your finished space luxurious and elegant.
Customizable: Tailor each job to your specific needs and customize the colour and finish of your floor.
Environmentally-friendly: Polished concrete does not require hazardous coatings, cleaners and adhesives. Avoiding the use of these chemicals is good for both your property and the environment.
Easy to maintain: A polished concrete surface won't harbour dust, dirt or harmful allergens. It is very easy to clean, with the occasional mopping being the only required maintenance. Don’t waste time worrying about cleaning your concrete when polishing can dramatically reduce your workload.
