Concrete polishing

Polished Concrete, Cheltenham

Popped back to a job we completed a couple of years ago. The polished concrete kitchen floor in Cheltenham was still looking great, just needed a little freshen up from us.

We were really pleased to see how well the floor was standing up to the wear & tear, and by the time we given it a quick refresh it was looking as good as the day it was installed.

Polished Concrete in Cheltenham

Polished concrete Cheltenham: We were asked to provide a polished concrete floor for a new kitchen extension in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Polishing concrete as a finished flooring solution has been available in the commercial environment for a number of years. The antithetical qualities that have made it popular in the domestic environment are not always so important to business. It works a as a practical option primarily because it is extremely durable and hard to stain or spoil. Making maintenance much more simple. An other benefit to the commercial sector is the increased light reflectively of the polished surface greatly reduces lighting costs.

These benefits to business are a real help in the domestic environment as well. You ability to effectively maintain & care for your floor is greatly increased when you choose polished concrete. With the right maintenance you can keep it looking like its just been professionally finished for longer

Once the concrete had cured & dried our work began

Concrete polishing in the Cotswolds & Gloucestershire

We wanted to share some concrete polishing process photographs of our latest concrete polishing project.

The first three pictures show the concrete slab after installation as the builders left it. Showing concrete floor before the polishing process beingsThe concrete slab ready for polishingThe concrete polishing process starting to take effect

The client request was to polish the concrete cream. To do this the slab must be laid and finished extremely well with no high or low spots to allow the machinery to agitate the surface without removing much of the top layer. The cream is the most fragile part of the slab and often requires hardening and densifying to give it the consistency to polish.

The floor was not as level as we may have hoped however we were able to retain 90% of the cream exposing minimal aggregate leaving this old blacksmiths unit with a contemporary and slightly rustic looking highly durable floor

The finish is created by running have a high powered machines over and over the concrete. With the concrete polishing process complete there is no synthetic topping on the floor which will increase the durability and life time of the slab. Polished concrete is arguably the most durable floor finish available to the the commercial and domestic market. This floor also has under floor heating installed
