Polished Concrete & Polished Toppings
Polished Concrete is one of the most beautiful, natural, and cost effective forms of flooring today. At TC Floors West, we have a variety of grinders, polishers and burnishers to bring your concrete visions to life.
- Process: Grinders mechanically polish to seal the pores in concrete. Cuts can vary from a ‘cream polish’ to mild at 'salt and pepper’, to 'deep cut’ exposing the largest of aggregates. Densification is an important part of this process as it prepares your new or old floor for the rest of the process. Finally, polishing specific sealers are applied and burnished to inhibit penetration of water, oil and other contaminants.
Polished Toppings: We are a proud applicator of several forms of this unique and stunning flooring type. Typically poured at 3/8” thickness, the floor is then polished the very next day! Polishable toppings are unique from the aspect that regardless of grinder cuts, the surface result is very consistent in its appearance. Possibilities are endless with a variety of colours, stains and aggregate seeding choices.
