Polished concrete has dramatically changed the way commercial and residential property owners view flooring options. Thanks to advancements in technology, there are now cost efficient ways to achieve aesthetically pleasing and durable concrete floors.
How is Concrete Polished?
There are three different methods used by Düraamen of Lancaster to polish concrete:
- Concrete Sealer or Coating – A topical concrete sealer can be applied to the surface of the concrete in order to achieve the shiny, colored appearance you require. The concrete coating can be dyed and honed to compliment your unique design.

- Polishing Natural Concrete – Our team will grind and polish the natural concrete floor using state-of-the-art equipment.
The Many Benefits of Polished Concrete
Durability– Polished concrete floors are a very common choice for large commercial spaces, such as warehouses, retail stores, and offices, where the floors will be experiencing a lot of traffic and wear throughout the day.
Appearance– Once we have achieved the perfect shine and color using our concrete polishing equipment, we can show you that your concrete floors can be more than just dull surfaces used for walking. Concrete polishing can bring out the luster and beauty of concrete, providing the appealing and sleek look of a natural stone floor.
Flexibility – Polished concrete flooring is not just for warehouses anymore. Even homeowners are opting to incorporate these techniques into their houses now that there are so many versatile options. Concrete polishing is accomplished using multiple steps, allows us to offer you different levels of sheen – from satin to high-gloss finishes. You let us know what your color, sheen, and maintenance goals are for your concrete floor, and we will provide solutions.
Can Every Concrete Floor Be Polished?
Any concrete floor can be polished; however, some floors may require more preparation than others. Most floors will require surface preparation, which involves the removal of dirt, grease, and minor blemishes.
If your concrete floor is quite damaged, needs extensive patching, or is extremely porous, these types of flaws will still be visible through the polishing. Düraamen of Lancaster can install concrete overlays to your floor that will allow you to cover these imperfections and achieve a more cohesive polished concrete floor.
