Understandably many of our customers are unsure about what can or cannot be achieved. Here we wish to explain a little of the technical background to the services we offer. (The Late) Maurizio Bertoli, one of the doyens of the stone restoration industry who always put his customers first, famously used the adage ‘Education before any sale.’ This sentiment firmly underpins the ethos of our company.
This process has been introduced to the United Kingdom relatively recently and thus its use has to become widespread. There is now no need to cover up what was a dull and unattractive slab of cement.
The benefits of ‘Exclusive Polished Concrete’ are:
· Extremely hard wearing
· Easy maintenance
· Aesthetically pleasing
· Low cost
· The floor can become up to 8 times harder.
It is now possible to polish concrete to a high gloss. This may be achieved by initially exposing the aggregate, which is integral to the concrete. Then by honing the surface sequentially with increasingly fine resin bonded diamonds a reflective gloss finish is created.
Additional treatments may entail colouring agents. There is a choice of up to thirty different colours. In industrial or commercial locations these may usefully serve to define walkways or indicate potentially hazardous areas. Potentially your name or logo may be coloured into the concrete.
Who would benefit from ‘Exclusive Polished Concrete’?
We are frequently asked this question. Since we believe this is ‘The Floor System of the Future’ our response is invariably ‘Everyone!’ Polished concrete is proven to be highly effective in areas such as kitchens, staircases, car showrooms, factories, commercial units, aircraft hangers, airports and train stations. The possibilities are endless.
