When it comes to flooring options that offer durability, versatility, and a modern aesthetic, polished concrete stands out as a popular choice. However, over time, even the most well-maintained concrete surfaces can lose their shine and luster. If your concrete floors are looking dull and worn, fear not! The Jack Laurie Group Specialty Surfaces team is here to help. Be on the lookout for any slick or dull areas. Re-polishing concrete will ensure the floor regains its former glory.

Step 1: Burnishing for a Fast and Dust-Free Process:

The first step in the concrete refresh process is a deep clean of the surface. This is critical in this process to remove any debris, contaminants and particles that would otherwise cause damage to the substrate over time. That minimizes dust production, resulting in a cleaner and more convenient experience. The specialized equipment lightly abrades the surface of the concrete, removing any surface imperfections and smoothing out minor wear and tear. This process is faster and less aggressive process compared to full-scale concrete grinding, making it an ideal choice for refreshing worn-out floors.

Step 2: Achieving the Desired Reflective Effect, Sheen, and Refinement:

After rebuffing, the next stage involves enhancing the shine and light-reflective properties of your concrete floor. Through careful polishing with progressively finer grits, the Specialty Surface team will bring out the much-wanted luster in your concrete. The process is performed using state-of-the-art polishing machinery, which ensures an even and consistent finish across the entire surface. The result is a visually stunning floor that exhibits a captivating sheen and a reflective effect, adding a touch of elegance to any space.

Step 3: Preserving Various Finishing Options:

One of the remarkable benefits of the refresh process for polished concrete is that it helps preserve a variety of finishing options. Whether your concrete floors feature logos, vibrant concrete dyes, or rich staining, the Specialty Surface team can rejuvenate them without compromising their unique design elements. By rebuffing and re-polishing the surface, your floor’s existing finishing options will be revitalized, ensuring they continue to make a lasting impression.

Step 4: Re-Sealing for Protection and Longevity:

To complete the refresh process, the Specialty Surface team will re-seal your concrete flooring. Sealing is essential for preserving the refreshed surface, as it acts as a protective barrier against stains, moisture, and daily wear and tear. The team will select a high-quality penetrating  and/or semi-penetrating sealer that suits your specific needs, ensuring the longevity of your polished concrete.
