The value of polishing your concrete floors

Think you can’t inject new life into old floors? Think again!

Concrete floors are amazing because of just how long – decades and decades – they can last. But that doesn’t mean that they won’t show signs of wear or tear along the way. You can simply grind away the dirt, stains, and imperfections in your flooring with concrete polishing.

This cost-effective alternative to spending on brand new floors can make them look just as good, if not better, than when you first had them poured. That’s because in addition to removing marks and dings, you can also seal and shine the floors for a designer look. 

Is concrete polishing going to be expensive?

It might be a cheaper flooring option, but just what will it cost for you to have your concrete floors looking like new? The overall cost reflects the amount of labour and materials necessary to deliver your desired outcome. The three main factors are the current condition of the floor, the size of the floor, and the level of polish you require in your finished floor. The more polish, or shiny, you want your floors, the longer the job will take, making it cost more in the long run as well. 

Most polished floors cost between $60-$120 per square metre. Another factor is going to be the method use to polish the floors themselves. Using a grind a seal method, for example, costs less than honing concrete, which usually takes off much more material in the process.

Is concrete polishing a major project?

From the standpoint of a homeowner or business owner, not really. The company you choose to handle your floors will be handling almost all of the work. You’ll want to check with them ahead of time to find out who is responsible for clearing out your space to make room for the team to enter and access the surface in question. Aside from preparing the room so that the workers can do their job, there isn’t much you have to worry about.

How long you are out of the space is a different matter. On average, it can take 2-4 days to complete a concrete polishing job, depending on how big the slab is and how much polishing work needs to be done. The great news is that once the crew is finished, you can immediately go back to using your floors without a long wait in between. 

What about maintenance expenses?

What maintenance? Once you have your concrete floors polished to perfection, there’s no more work to be done for you or the team you hired to get the job done. Polished concrete floors resist staining and can be kept clean with regular damp cloth mopping. This saves time and ensures your floors are always looking great.

Because it does not require any further materials and has a long lifespan, polished concrete offers significant cost savings over other floor materials. For example, a carpeted alternative requires additional materials, will need to be replaced multiple times during the lifespan of the alternative concrete floor, and will be harder and more costly to maintain and keep clean.

So, how do I choose a concreter?

Great question. After all, they can all start to seem the same especially at first when you are doing your research. However, there can be a lot of differences between different concrete contractors, and you’ll want to be sure to choose the best one for your polishing project. 

Kick off your exploration by checking out how long these companies have been in business. The last thing you’ll want is a fly-by-night company that touts cheap prices but has an inexperienced team that could damage your slab in the process. Explore the reputation of each contractor by looking them up online and checking for their social proofs. Many past customers may have already taken to the web to share their experiences and recommend (or warn) other potential clients. You can also ask for customer testimonials and references to speak with especially for really large projects or niche commercial jobs. 

Of course, you’ll always want to make sure that the company you choose, and the people working on your project, are insured. This will protect you (and them) from any mishaps that could inadvertently happen along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions About Concrete Polishing in Perth

What is Kwikcut’s concrete polishing process?

Our work starts the moment you decide you want a polished concrete floor. A member of our team will perform a free site visit to discuss your options with you and provide a quote for our work. Upon acceptance, we’ll then book you in for the polishing process as soon as possible.

On the day, we’ll use a series of progressively finer grinding and polishing pads to deliver the finish you want. The amount of work will depend on the current condition of the floor and the desired level of polish. During this process, we may use sealers and densifiers to help create a long-lasting impermeable finish.

Is concrete polishing environmentally friendly?

It is! This is for a few reasons, first of which is that it uses the original foundation, so no further materials needed. Polishing It does not require any coatings or toppings that are bad for the environment. And concrete itself is long-lasting so won’t need to be replaced for decades – in many cases up to 50 years! Cleaning and maintenance are also easy and don’t require strong or harmful chemicals. You can also reduce your power bill in some cases since polished floors can be highly reflective, reducing the amount of lighting you need in a space. 

Is concrete polishing messy?

Not necessarily. Of course, as the team grinds and polishes the flooring, whether through wet or dry methods, there will be waste that is kicked up and off to the side. That’s the concrete that’s being carefully removed to give your floors the look you want. But professional teams will also have high-end equipment that helps them keep up with any mess that occurs as it happens. This can include industrial vacuums and proper ventilation that cut down on and capture any dust that is produced.

Can you change the color of my concrete, too?

Yes, but that’s technically part of a separate process. The great thing about concrete is that it’s versatile and doesn’t have to stay plain or grey if you don’t want it to. Stains and dyes are available that can be applied as part of the finishing process, along with sealers, to change up the look of your floors and make them last.
