Benefits of Concrete Polishing

Polished concrete floors have been around for decades but did you know there’s been a significant rise in popularity in recent years? Growth in demand and usage is largely due to the unique characteristics of a mechanically polished concrete floor. With the advancements in technology, a key component in achieving the perfect polished concrete floors is the use of a high-quality concrete grinder. At Reliance Concrete Polishing, we utilize state-of-the-art concrete grinding equipment to ensure precision and efficiency in the polishing process. This enables us to create flawless finishes that showcase the natural beauty and durability of the concrete. Experience the long-lasting benefits of a professionally installed and meticulously polished concrete floor system, which can enhance the aesthetics of your space and provide hassle-free maintenance for over 20 years.

097 The Ocean Alliance, based in Gloucester, Massachusetts is midcourse in a labor of love restoring a New England landmark. The Copper Mill Buildings' floors were installed 143 years ago. The surface had endured as many years of foot traffic, machinery traffic, chemicals, ocean air, dirt, grime, and more. Ocean Alliance was looking for a different type of restoration allowing for preservation of the past but also with a look revealing a bright future. Due to the age of the floors, this restoration needed to proceed with great care.

Polished concrete floors are not only popular due to their high-gloss finish, but also their environmentally friendly nature. The push for “greener” spaces has led to greater awareness of flooring options. Common floor coverings, such as carpet and vinyl laminate, release caustic chemicals, requiring chemical based products to keep clean and often need frequent replacement. Let’s look at a few of the benefits of a polished concrete floor.

Durable

Polished concrete flooring is extremely strong and resilient and is able to hold up under very heavy foot, machinery and equipment traffic. Polished concrete is long-lasting and incredibly tough, difficult to damage, chip or scratch. Not to mention, the weight of cars and heavy equipment or the danger of spills are no match for this flooring.

Economical And Sustainable

Concrete floors are perfect for those looking to be more aware of what products are made of. Concrete is made primarily out of natural raw materials, but can also be made with byproducts such as crushed glass, recycled plastic and other forms of waste.

Hypoallergenic

Having a hypoallergenic floor means allergens, dust mites, mold, mildew, bacteria or moisture won’t grow, live or collect on your floors. The smooth surface eliminates the transfer of these pathogens into the environment. Polished concrete is easy to keep clean by periodically using a dry or wet mop. Overall, polished concrete floors are an allergy friendly option for flooring.

LEED Certified

You probably know that polished concrete floors have always been a green alternative, but you may not know that they are LEED certified as well. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Sustainable 
  • Low chemical emissions
  • Easy to maintain with green cleaners
  • Doesn’t have to be replaced every ten years due to wear or damage

The Reliance Crew performed a great restoration on one of Sponge-Jet's manufacturing spaces. Cost and schedule remained inline and recommendations for repair and improvement could not have been better! The group is highly motivated, always on time and focused on the details like they were working on their own floor! Same day request for contact response, reasonable pricing, met daily and weekly scheduling projections. NO REGRETS!

I made an outreach to Brent on a Friday at 8 PM to ask for help to grind out high spots on our concrete subfloor. This was needed as a prerequisite to laying vinyl plank flooring. I didn’t anticipate a return call until Monday at the earliest. However, at one o’clock Saturday PM, I received a call from Brent who told me he could swing by to evaluate the subfloor. Brent showed up an hour later and explained to me what was needed to ‘flatten’ the subfloor. Brent worked with us to satisfy the requirements of the condo association and the work was performed as promised and completed within a day. Brent is a top notch businessman and his customer service is beyond exceptional. We just finished installing our new flooring and it looks terrific. I would definitely do business with Brent again if the need arises.

Brent has been great to work with. I was looking for an alternative to epoxy floors last summer and reached out to Reliant. We were so happy with the work of the Reliant team that we are scheduled for two more projects this summer, and are planning two more for the following year. Quality work, fair price, and great service!

Brent and his team did a fantastic job taking up the old tile and carpet to give us a beautiful new look at Hogan Eye Associates. They were a pleasure to work with start to finish. The polished concrete floors have a rustic contemporary elegant look. We love it.
