In our last post we recommended that you get polished concrete for your floor. In this post we outline some important matters that need to be addressed if you take this option.
If you have not yet put the concrete down make sure that the person pouring your concrete knows that you plan on polishing it – it would be even better if you could arrange for the concrete pourer and the concrete polisher to talk about it before they even do any work. This is because concrete polishing needs certain conditions. For example, it is important that the concrete mix does not have any retarding agents in it, because that will ruin the concrete when they go to polish it.
Make sure that you hire professionals to do this for you. Your floor is important and you don’t want to break it by attempting to do it yourself. Did you know that the polishing is done by diamonds? Diamonds are not just for engagement rings, apparently.
