Concrete Resurfacing, Repair and Restoration
Polished concrete is fast becoming the ultimate no-wax flooring material. Thanks to recent advances in polishing equipment and techniques, PolishMaxx is grinding concrete floor surfaces, whether new or old, to a high-gloss finish that never needs waxes or coatings. Factor in the superior durability and performance of concrete, and it’s no wonder why more retail, warehouse, office and industrial facilities are opting for polished concrete flooring as an alternative to Paint, VCT or Epoxy Coated concrete.
Polished concrete’s superior durability and performance have made it a top finish for retail stores, warehouses, municipalities, office and industrial facilities. Easier to repair with less maintenance than coatings, polished concrete provides a durable wear surface with great aesthetic appeal.
Polished concrete floors are very economical. Unlike many other floor surface materials, a polished concrete floor can last up to ten years or longer before it needs to be re-polished. Maintenance on a polished floor is also minimal, thereby reducing the costs associated with keeping a floor clean, durable, and traffic-friendly.
Polished concrete floors are striking in appearance. Exposure of the aggregate in concrete unveils the look of stone. There are a variety of colors available on the market to stain or in some other way modify the color and look of polished floors. There are also various levels of sheen depending on the degree of reflectivity and shine that is desired. Whether a high gloss showroom floor, a warehouse floor with a matte finish or a manufacturing facility with the company’s logo displayed proudly on the production room floor, PolishMaxx has the knowledgeable personnel and the experience your company needs to achieve the project outcome you desire.
Why Polished Concrete:
- Creates a dust free surface – reduces dust mite and allergen problems

What is polished concrete?
Polished concrete is a high-gloss finish attained by using special floor polishing equipment fitted with diamond-impregnated abrasive disks (similar to sandpaper) to grind down surfaces for the desired degree of shine and smoothness. The resulting floor surface is very low-maintenance, can be stained, and replicates the look of polished stone.
What are the benefits?
Polished concrete is considered a sustainable design flooring option because it makes use of the materials already present. Most modern buildings are built on a concrete slab; polishing the exposed concrete eliminates the energy and material consumed by applying a floor covering. Polished concrete is definitely something to consider when building or modernizing towards a more green solution.
PolishMaxx polished concrete floors are low-maintenance, as they are more durable and easier to clean than many other flooring options. Polished concrete’s relatively high coefficient of friction can make it non-slippery. Polished concrete reduces dust mite and allergen problems. It also does not support mold growth. Polished concrete flooring is hard wearing and will not chip or dent like softer surfaces such as timber, epoxies or urethanes. Mopping with warm soapy water once a week is the only regular maintenance suggested. Polished concrete is becoming one of the most sought-after hard surface systems with a wide range of benefits including aesthetics, uniqueness, ease of maintenance and light reflectivity.
