POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING AND CEMENT POLISHING

WE GIVE YOU THE BEAUTY OF
POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORS

Servicing The Bay Area’s Industrial, Commercial, and Residential Properties.

Many people are turning to cement polishing because of the low maintenance and longevity of this floor type.

For long-term cost savings, cement polishing is one of the best answers. The maintenance of a polished concrete floor amounts to giving it a dry, dust mop and a wet mop – that’s it!

Industry estimates indicate that polished concrete installations make up 15 to 20 percent of all new flooring systems installed each year. 

These numbers are likely to continue rising, but you may wonder why more and more businesses are turning to polished concrete for their industrial flooring needs.

OUR EASY
4-STEP PROCESS:

1. We use a variety of different grit diamond pads to grind the floor to get the desired appearance.

2. This process will also remove pits, stains, blemishes, old floor sealers, and finishes. We can fill cracks in the concrete as well.

4. If the client desires a specific color, we can stain the cement accordingly.

5. If desired, we can seal the concrete when we have achieved the desired appearance.

WHY IS POLISHED CONCRETE
FLOOR SO HOT RIGHT NOW?

Polished concrete flooring remains an ideal choice for people and businesses. With limitless design options, custom color choices, and the ability to match any style, polished concrete flooring is an excellent decorative choice. 

It provides large open spaces with a unifying aesthetic which offers an uninterrupted transition from interior to exterior. Whether you desire it for your home or industrial and commercial facilities, it provides many benefits.

Polished concrete is ideal for commercial and industrial facilities such as hotel lobbies, factories, warehouses, automotive shops, offices, and even luxury residential properties.

THE BENEFITS OF POLISHED CONCRETE:

Prolonged Service Life

Polished concrete can resist heavy traffic like the legs of household furniture in homes or a forklift operating in industrial and commercial facilities. That’s not all; the polished concrete is resistant to damage from chemical and oil spills. Since polishing enables the concrete to breathe, there is no need to worry about issues arising due to moisture.

A Professional Image

The beauty of polished concrete undoubtedly promotes a professional image for most organizations in any environment. It promotes a clean appearance without in any way limiting its durability or longevity. This look gives the business a fresh and modern appeal.

It Lowers Cost

Don’t forget that the substrate and the finished product here are your pre-existing concrete. This single factor lowers the cost for businesses when polishing their floor. It adds to the overall savings resulting from the reduced maintenance costs of polished concrete flooring. Polished concrete reduces energy and maintenance costs by improving ambient lighting and reducing the need for regular floor maintenance such as machine scrubbing, sealing, and refinishing.

Improved Reflectivity and Ambient Lighting

The reflective properties of a polished concrete floor maximize lighting in facilities. Improved lighting reduces the cost of energy bills and increases safety. This is one of the remarkable features of polished concrete floors. Most office buildings and businesses love the reflectivity of the polished concrete surface. It brightens the workplace by reflecting artificial light within the business facility. Apart from eliminating the need for extra electricity to brighten up the office environment, it promotes a lively workplace.

Customizable

Do you have any unique shape, color, or features in mind? Polished concrete is the perfect solution for you. We can provide you with a design that suits your personal or corporate needs. We can design and color your concrete floors to suit your needs while exposing the concrete’s natural beauty.

Reduced Maintenance

Another exciting feature of polished concrete floors is their ease of maintenance. Most floor systems, including tile and linoleum, require aggressive scrubbing to maintain a sanitary environment and clean appearance. Polished concrete surfaces are tightly compacted to reduce the development of stains. At the same time, they do not require any waxing or stripping treatments to maintain their sheen. To ensure the continued smoothness and shine of the concrete, you can make use of other products.

A Stain-Resistant Surface

The process of densifying and sealing the surface transforms a concrete floor into a smooth surface that protects against contaminants, preventing them from penetrating the surface.

Improved Slip Resistance

Polished concrete, though shiny on the surface, does not create a slippery floor. The benefits of mechanically grinding and flattening the floor increase the coefficient of friction when compared to ordinary concrete. 

LEED Friendly

Polished concrete requires fewer cleaning chemicals to maintain. It also typically does not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Less dependence on chemicals makes it friendly for any U.S. Green Building Council LEED project and increases its overall sustainability.

Improve The Condition Of Old Floors

As concrete ages, surface stress, delamination, curled cold joints, and other problems can arise. Mechanically grinding the floor removes the top surface of the old concrete. Polishing strengthens it, increasing its impact and abrasion resistance. 

Reduce Tire Wear

The rough, uneven texture of natural concrete causes tires to abrade, increasing wear and tear over time. A polished concrete floor system levels the joints and makes the entire surface smooth, preventing abrasion.

No Production/Plant Shutdowns

Dry-mechanically polished concrete can be put into service immediately after the process is complete. Since the process does not use toxic or hazardous chemicals, floors can often be used as soon as the project is finished.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT
POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING

IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POLISHING NEWLY INSTALLED VS. PRE-EXISTING CONCRETE FLOORS?

The installation of a polished concrete floor has two main categories; retrofit floors and new floors. Wondering which one is perfect for you?

The choice depends on the state of your concrete floors. When working with new floors, the process does not require much work, leading to less cost. However, you may need to consider some specifications before polishing the new concrete floor.

On the other hand, retrofit floors can be polished depending on the state of the concrete. At Transpacific Building Maintenance, Inc., we can polish the concrete to any standard if it’s in excellent condition.

But, if it’s in a poor state, it needs to be ground down to the natural aggregate as the “exposure level.” So, the one that suits your floor depends on the condition of the floor.

WHAT COLORS, TEXTURES, AND FINISHES ARE AVAILABLE?

What determines the texture and finish of concrete floors is the grade of concrete used. It also determines the polishing process.

So, you have almost limitless options when choosing the colors, textures, and finishes of a new concrete floor. There are several ways to introduce color; for instance, to achieve any of your desired colors, pigment can be mixed into wet concrete.

Also, colored aggregates like marbles, stones, and pieces of glass can be added. It’s possible to color-dry concrete with water-based stain.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING?

  • Retail Stores
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Luxury Residences
  • Warehouses
  • Industrial Facilities
  • Schools
  • Auto Dealerships

You can see examples of polished concrete on every floor at Home Depot, Lowes, or Costco.

IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CEMENT AND CONCRETE?

Cement is just a concrete component, so the sidewalks found almost everywhere are not made of cement but concrete. 

Presently, there is a wide variety of flooring styles and methods. Still, one of the most popular flooring solutions in recent years is polished concrete flooring.

CONCRETE AND POLISHED CONCRETE – ANY DIFFERENCE?

SO, HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO INSTALL A POLISHED CONCRETE FLOOR?

Generally, installing a polished concrete floor is not expensive. Several factors may determine the pricing of a polished concrete floor. For instance, the decorative effects of the floor, such as scoring or staining, can increase the price. 

Also, your location and how many grinding levels are needed to make the surface of the floor smooth enough are factors that may affect the price.

A common factor that often leads to a drop in the price is the size of the space. Larger spaces will cost less on a per square foot basis. Find below the cost of installing a polished concrete floor:

  • The cost of a polished concrete floor, which requires just a few levels of grinding, can be as affordable as $3 to $6/sq. ft.
  • Concrete floors requiring more in-depth grinding or other effects such as coloring with dyes and stains can range between $6 and $15/sq. ft.
  • Since it’s often harder to obtain a consistent look when using a smaller machine on a residential floor, the typical cost for polished concrete for such space is between $6 and $15 sq. ft.
