You may be considering polished concrete flooring when you’re looking for a new floor for your home or commercial premises.

But, are there any benefits to installing polished concrete floors? The answer is yes!

Not only do polished concrete floors look great, but they also have many benefits that make them well worth the investment.

Here, we delve deeper into the benefits of this type of flooring to help you decide if it’s right for you.

The Benefits of Installing Polished Concrete Floors

Here are some of the benefits of polished concrete floors:

Highly aesthetic

Polished concrete flooring is beautiful and timeless. Because they don’t show wear as quickly as other types of flooring (such as carpet), polished concrete floors will look great through years of use—even if pets or children are in your home! Plus, because they’re so durable and low-maintenance, polished concrete floors can last for decades with minimal upkeep needed during that period.

Easy to clean

Polished concrete floors are easy to clean. Because of their smooth surface and lack of grout lines, you can quickly remove dirt and stains from polished concrete floors without scrubbing or harsh chemicals. And, because of their low maintenance requirements and durability, polished concrete floors can save you a lot of time and money on repairs and replacements.

In addition, polished concrete floors are easy to repair if they sustain any damage.

Stain resistant

The best part about polished concrete floors is that they are highly stain-resistant!

If you spill something on your polished concrete floor, it will dry without leaving behind any stains or marks on the surface. This makes polished concrete flooring perfect for kitchens, hospitals, schools, and factory floors where spills may happen often!

Highly durable

Polished concrete is a durable material that can withstand heavy traffic and abuse. It has a very low coefficient of friction, making it ideal for areas with a lot of foot traffic—for example, a busy lobby or retail space where people are walking around constantly.

High moisture resistance

Polished concrete floors are also resistant to moisture damage, meaning you can install them in areas with an increased risk of floodings, such as basements and bathrooms. This flooring will not warp or buckle under these conditions, making it ideal for these spaces.

Cost-effective

Another benefit of polished concrete flooring is its affordability compared to other materials, such as hardwood floors or laminate surfaces.

This type of flooring installation is easy and budget-friendly. You can even install them without the need for an underlayment or padding.

They’re also more cost-effective than other types of hardwood flooring, which require regular maintenance. Polished concrete is inexpensive because it requires little maintenance after installation: there’s no waxing, sanding, or coating to keep the surface looking shiny and new over time!

Additionally, this flooring provides an easy way to update your space without spending much money on expensive renovations like adding new walls or cabinets; simply upgrade your space with new flooring.

What are concrete coatings?

Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.

Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. ConTek Coating uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??

We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.

How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?

A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.

What if I already have an existing concrete coating?

We must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).

How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?

We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.

We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or shot grinding the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Some contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?

No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping or mopping. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.

Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?

Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.

What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?

Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts or garages.

How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?

We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint. 

Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?

You can!  Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.

Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?

Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring.  Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime! 

Does My Concrete Floor Coating Come With A Warranty?

We provide a 10 year warranty on your concrete floor coatings against peeling, delamination and wear for as long as you own your home.

"Austin applied a polyaspartic epoxy solid-color coating to our garage. The work -- which included grinding off the old coating and the application of three coats of polyaspartic (primer coat + 2) -- was done meticulously. The new coating looks great and the sand added to the primer coat has eliminated the slippery nature of the old coating. Austin was exceptional to deal with from start to finish. He communicated by phone, e-mail & text...always in a timely and totally professional manner. I highly recommend this company."

"We hired Austin to level our basement floors before we installed vinyl flooring. He was on time, a pleasure to work with, clean, reasonable and our basement floors look amazing. We recommend and we would use his services again. After the floors were completed he was kind enough to drop off a thank you and some delicious coffee for us try. Thank you Austin!"
