It is an undeniable fact that polishing concrete is a very complex process, even for the most skilled stone restoration specialist. This said, the challenge of restoring a concrete floor offers exceptional reward.

We have carefully devised a multi-step process that employs the use of specialized techniques, tools, machinery and products. Each job will vary slightly so it is important to tailor the process to ensure that the best result can be achieved.

It is likely that the concrete flooring will have previous coatings on its surface; this needs to be removed. Our heavy-duty polishing machinery grinds down the surface with diamond abrasives.

As with other floor restoration work, different clients seek to achieve a range of finish from a highly reflective shine to a silky smooth surface.

On discussion with many of our clients we have identified that it is usually the case that individuals feel as though the stone restoration process will cause much more disruption than actually experienced. Whether we are working on domestic or commercial stone cleaning projects we endeavour to ensure the smooth-running of the job.
