How is concrete polished? The really simple answer is with a lot of hard work and effort. We use a system of expensive swiss diamond abrasives fitted to very heavy machinery to remove scratches within the concrete mass until the floor takes on a glass like appearance which reflects light. This whole process is spread over a few days due to ensure all steps are carried out completely.
Please do not be fooled that polished concrete consists of power floating the concrete and applying a sealer; if you do, you’ll have been had.
