Colorado Springs Garage Floors Now Carries The Polished ® Collection for Concrete Flooring for Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Use
When it comes to giving your concrete flooring a polished flooring look, there are two main options: polishing it the traditional way, or using the Polished ® Collection floor coating with our superior Polyaspartic coating. The Polished ® Collection from Chips Unlimited offers advantages over just polishing your concrete floors. This article will explore the benefits of using the Polished ® Collection instead of just polishing your concrete floors.
Concrete Polishing – What Can Happen When You Polish Your Existing Concrete the Traditional Way
Polishing your concrete does not provide the same level of protection as the Polished ® Collection. Polishing does not offer slip resistance, which is an important safety feature for any floor. Additionally, your concrete may have uneven aggregate in it, which does not give you a consistent look. This polished option will not only provide you with a more consistent look, but it will also seal and protect your concrete from staining, wear, and tear.
This collection provides a more refined designer finish. An even application that looks great when finished.
The traditional polish job starts out with grinding the concrete to expose the aggregate. We all like to think that our concrete would be beautiful once polished, but in all reality, most are not. The aggregate sometimes is not spread around well, leaving a lot in one place, and none in others. Also, there can be a lot of large stones in one area, and smaller ones in others. Either of these does not give you a consistent look. But now there is a solution!
Pros and Cons of Polished Concrete
Learn more about polished concrete – advantages and disadvantages
Actual polished flooring offers numerous benefits as a flooring solution, but it is equally important to consider its drawbacks. One significant advantage is its ability to withstand outdoor conditions. Unlike other flooring options, this can endure exposure to the elements without deteriorating or losing its shine.
Additionally, this application is exceptionally easy to clean, making it ideal for high-traffic areas or commercial and industrial settings that require a pristine appearance. However, it is important to note that this application is not suitable for all types of floors. Cement floors that are heavily damaged or cracked may require concrete resurfacing before polishing can take place.
The cost of concrete polishing can vary greatly, usually ranging between $10 to $12 per square foot, depending on factors such as the level of polishing required and the size of the area. This is a significant amount more than what we charge for our flooring material, a polished concrete Polyaspartic solution. As you can see, the concrete polishing cost can be pretty high and makes this an expensive residential project. Our product gives you lots of color and texture options for your floor coverings.
Decorative Concrete – Get a Designer Finish on Your Concrete
The Polished ® Collection was developed to provide a more refined designer finish to the resinous flooring market. This collection is produced with novel manufacturing techniques that enable the combination of ultra-fine particles and relatively oversized particles to visually simulate the exposed aggregate aesthetics of a polished concrete surface. The ultra-fine particles contained within each blend create interstitial spaces wherein the underlying tinted basecoat remains semi-visible throughout a full broadcast application of the polished blend.
As a result, polished colored particles cooperate with the underlying tinted basecoat to promote the overall color, shade, and randomized particulate pattern of the resulting resinous floor coating. Doesn’t it look great?
