Concrete Installation Process

Concrete Installation

A truly successful beautiful Polished Concrete floor has many factors that will prove its overall outcome. It is a misconception to think that anyone can install concrete to be polished, it is not easy and can often end in failure with very, very unhappy customers not achieving the aesthetic they have dreamed of in there new home or house extension.

There are only a few companies in the United Kingdom who are willing to take on the responsibility for both the installation and polishing. Having the right amount of people on site, who all know what they are doing is vital for when the concrete wagon turns up as you only have one chance of getting it right.

Polished Concrete and Stone install the concrete from a polishers prospective rather than just laying a slab as there are different steps that must be taken for different aesthetics (cream, salt & pepper and full aggregate exposure).  We also ensure the correct mix, size of the stone, slump and colour is specified.

The pictures below show a new house build in Cheshire with a grey coloured dry shake hardener being applied and power floated into the surface, this is known as a cream finish and is the hardest aesthetic to achieve.  Diamond polishing takes place only after the concrete has gone through its 28 day curing period.  Different levels of gloss can be achieved according to the customers specification through the diamond refinement.
