Polish your concrete floors for added lustre
Concrete floors have long been renowned for their hardiness and durability but until recently, not for their pleasing aesthetic qualities. Stone Techniques concrete polishing service is changing all of this. Once concrete is polished, it not only becomes denser and stronger, it also becomes more resistant to stains, easier to maintain, and beautiful to look at.

Polished concrete floors are low-maintenance, as they are more enduring and easier to clean than many flooring options. It is considered a good sustainable flooring option because it makes use of the materials already present. Most modern buildings are built using concrete, polishing the exposed concrete eliminates the energy and material consumed by applying a floor covering.

Polished concrete’s relatively high coefficient of friction can make it non-slippery, the process reduces dust mite and allergy problems, and does not support mould growth. When polished to a highly reflective finish it reduces lighting needs and improves natural light diffusion. Polished concrete flooring is hard wearing and will not chip or dent like other surfaces and subsequently only very low levels of maintenance are required.
