Is Polished Concrete A Good Alternative to Epoxy?


When compared to epoxy, the price per square foot of polished concrete is much less. It is a great option to offer clients who want a decorative floor but don’t have the budget for a full metallic/epoxy floor.

Concrete is Forever Winning

Simple, natural, and crystal gleaming surfaces are among the most desirable when choosing a new flooring option for your home or business. Polished concrete has skyrocketed in popularity over the years because polished concrete surfaces are extremely long-lasting and absolutely reliable, very cost-effective, and easy to maintain, and it can be incorporated in practically any type of environment, whether it be residential, commercial, or industrial settings.

How to Maintain A Polished Concrete Floor

Maintaining a polished concrete floor is straightforward; needing only a floor maintenance machine like a floor scrubber that uses robust scrubbing pads that attach directly to the bottom of the machine and concrete surface sealers to protect and reserve your polished concrete floors will help you easily keep track of your surfaces. By maintaining your polished concrete floors you are preventing bacteria from building up on your surfaces and you also prevent them from becoming dull over time. Another reliable product that helps preserve the shine to your surfaces is concrete cleaners and degreasers which are easy to apply and readily available to the public, either online or in-store for pick up.


Can I Decorate My Polished Concrete Floor?

On top of being completely maintainable, polished concrete flooring can be decorative as well! With the proper materials and application tools, you can transform your concrete floors into an aesthetic work of art. Concrete dyes and concrete stains give you the ability to become an artist with your concrete surfaces by tainting your surfaces with colorful, or subtle hues that could resemble other natural surfaces including stone, marble, granite and even wood. Stencil applications can also be achieved with decorative concrete staining and concrete dying projects for purposes such as commercial logos or company symbols that may represent a business, organization, or institute.
