Polished Concrete Contractors Rhode Island
For new commercial and residential properties, more and more people are searching for alternatives to replace hard-surface materials like tile, and it’s no mystery why.
Because material and labor costs are so high for tile, people are choosing polished concrete for much of their flooring, leading to a significant rise in the options that are available with concrete and, ultimately, a new aesthetic within our businesses and homes. Eastern Concrete Polishing, located in Rutland, MA, is excited to be a part of that change.
What is polished concrete?
The process is much like a carpenter sanding a wooden surface. For Eastern Concrete Polishing, polished concrete is created when heavy machinery is used to gradually grind down a concrete surface until the desired level of exposure is achieved. From there, a densifier coat is applied to harden the surface, and eliminate dust. It is then polished to the desired sheen, sealed and burnished leaving a shine that accentuates the details and color.
Commonly, you’ve likely seen polished concrete in places like:
- Retail stores
- Restaurants and hotels
- Office buildings
- Car showrooms
- Homes and residences
Why is Polished Concrete gaining popularity?
Polished concrete is quickly becoming one of the most sought after flooring materials for several reasons.
- It’s affordable. Traditionally, flooring is made of multiple layers that add up in cost. The subflooring is made of raw wood or rough concrete, which requires a soft underlay made of foam or rubber to cover it. Then, the flooring materials like hardwood, carpet, or tile are placed over that. With polished concrete, you only need the one slab to be laid and you’re all set, saving you from additional expenses.
- It’s highly resistant. A company has loads of foot traffic that will quickly wear the flooring. Perhaps you’ve been in a business with wood flooring that appears worn or discolored, which takes away from the overall atmosphere. Polished concrete doesn’t require daily waxing or heavy cleaning like tile or wood.
- It’s easily maintained. With minimal maintenance, a concrete floor won’t have to be resurfaced for around 12 years. All that is required is a daily sweep and the occasional mopping.
- It’s available in a wide variety of options. With Polished concrete for Rutland, MA, dozens of colors are available to pick from, as well as various designs and textures. From there, the level of gloss or sheen can be determined to your liking. And beyond that, there are also a number of designs that can be made like images or logos.
