6 Amazing Benefits of Polished Concrete Floor Finishes for Commercial Buildings

If you own or operate a business or building with concrete floors, you may be looking for a way to make your concrete look more stylized or appealing. The fastest and easiest way to do this is with modern polished concrete floor finishes. Concrete is also a durable option for new real estate, which is easy for your tenants to maintain—or to place temporary flooring on top of. Below are just a few of the benefits of choosing concrete.

Perfect For Every Use And Function

If you are looking for a versatile flooring solution for your commercial building, polished concrete is the way to go. Install in your new construction, or give old or stained concrete new life by grinding and polishing.

Cheaper Than Installing New Flooring

If you already have concrete, polishing it is less expensive than laying tile or carpet on top. With the endless variety of finishes mentioned below you can forgo the industrial look of plain grey. However, you or your tenants can easily overlay carpet tiles or other temporary flooring to create a new look, or to increase functionality. For example, it may be more fitting to overlay carpet tiles in your executive offices.

An Endless Option Of Natural Stone Finishes

Plain grey flooring can look modern or contemporary, but that is far from your only option. Polished concrete floor finishes can be made to look like natural stones of a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors—from light to dark. Enjoy the beauty of a stone finish with smooth and polished concrete.

You Can Color Your Concrete

In addition to creating a natural stone finish, you can have your concreate colored any way you like. You can even create colourful patterns or patchwork, or even mimic the look of tile.

Easy To Clean And Maintain

Polished concreate floor finishes are extremely easy to clean and maintain, and are a hypoallergenic alternative to carpet. They are mold resistant, although spills should be cleaned up fairly quickly to reduce fall risk. If not properly sealed, spills may cause stains. Dust mop and wet mop as needed, and strategically place rugs and runners at entryways and other high-traffic areas.

No One Will Know It’s Concrete

With an endless option of decorative colors and finishes it won’t be evident to most that your floors are concrete. Not that knowing is a bad thing, but with the modern options of polished finishes it will be a pleasant surprise.

If you are looking for beautiful and easy to maintain flooring, polished concrete floor finishes are the way to go.
