Unlike epoxy and polyurethane coating systems, polyaspartic floor coatings can be installed in just hours, not days.

Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors
High Durability – Polished concrete flooring is extremely strong and durable with a lifespan that far surpasses other floor covers. It can withstand heavy foot and equipment traffic and is difficult to damage.
Less Maintenance – A professionally installed, sealed, and kept polished concrete floor can last more than a hundred years. Dirt, grime, and other debris are easily wiped off. Damp mopping once a week to remove scuffs and water marks is all that is usually needed. Added maintenance may be needed with other types of floor finishes. Polished concrete floors do not require any waxing or stripping to support the sheen.
Cost Effective – The long lifespan of polished concrete far surpasses that of other floor coverings. This means money can be saved as there is no need to remove and replace worn or damaged flooring. The cost savings and long-life expectancy of this type of flooring make it a popular choice for offices, schools, retail stores, clinics, and restaurants.
Aesthetics – The choice of colors and texture effects for concrete floors is limitless. We love to bring old drab concrete surfaces to life.
Sanitary – Properly polished and sealed concrete floors are non-porous meaning they prevent liquids and contaminants from getting into the concrete. Therefore, health facilities as well as the hotel and hospital industries are choosing this type of flooring over others. Done properly, the surface of your floor will resist bacteria and other similar contaminants.
Safety – We often install non-slip epoxy coatings to help prevent slips and falls.
Brighter Spaces – High gloss finishes help increase ambient lighting. The increased light reflection makes this type of flooring ideal for retail outlets, showrooms, restaurants, and offices where a clean, bright, and professional image is needed.
Chemical and Solvent Resistant – Polished concrete floors can be sealed with a chemical-resistant epoxy to protect your floor against harsh chemicals and solvents.
Environmentally Friendly – Polished concrete floors do not have harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) unlike carpeting, wood laminate, and vinyl flooring materials.
Residential & Commercial Uses
Residential – The most common uses for residential polished concrete surfaces include kitchens, dining areas, verandas, patios, porches, pool decks, basements, and garages. For Edmonton homeowners, concrete polished flooring means the elimination of dust, easy maintenance, and environmental friendliness. Other benefits include abrasion resistance, reduced porosity, and the durable marble-like shine.
Commercial / Industrial – For commercial areas, polished concrete is more resistant to high foot traffic and needs little maintenance. The hard-polished concrete finish is a very sustainable flooring choice since it does not require any adhesives or hazardous cleaners. Polished concrete is often used for retail outlets, restaurants, showrooms, warehouses, gyms, offices, hospitals, and clinics. We also install polished concrete in a variety of industrial facilities such as manufacturing plants and distribution centers.
