Let us transform your old concrete floors into the luxury floors they deserve to be.
At Epoxy Flooring Arkansas, we can turn any structurally sound concrete into a beautiful polished concrete floor.
Our polished concrete floors are durable, easy to clean and maintain, and perfect for underfloor heating systems as they absorb and retain heat. They are available in a wide range of colors to compliment the aggregates used.
Polished concrete is excellent for Memphis TN residential, commercial and industrial surfaces. This modern flooring can elevate any warehouse, home, bar, restaurant, retail shop, big box store and more with an aesthetically pleasing look.
Polished concrete can be put into service immediately after the process is complete. In addition, due to the cleanliness of the process and the lack of toxic or hazardous chemicals it makes it ideal for Memphis TN industrial and commercial facilities that cannot afford to shut down for an extended period.
Hard-wearing, easy to clean and dust-mite resistant means polished concrete has the ability to transform any space into a sleek, trendy area. Plus, it works brilliantly with underfloor heating for the cold Memphis TN winters.
If you are wondering what polished concrete is, it's simply a concrete floor with a chemical densifier added to fill the pores to give a dense, durable matrix?. The surface is then ground down with various diamond polishing tools to achieve the required level of smoothness, shine and finish as agreed.
Once the concrete has been through the process of polishing, it becomes highly durable. A densifier eliminates porosity giving your floor a long life.
By densifying and sealing the surface, polished concrete transforms a porous concrete floor into a solid floor that is dense enough to repel water, oil and other contaminants, preventing them from penetrating the surface. This makes polished concrete extremely easy to clean and maintain requiring only a mop and some mild floor detergent.
Polished concrete heats up quickly and retains and distributes the warmth produced from underfloor heating, making a heated polished concrete floor a great option to improve the comfort and warmth of your Memphis TN home during winter.
Unpolished concrete is porous. When the concrete starts showing signs of wear and tear, fine concrete dust will appear on the floor and in the corners of the room. This is concrete dusting, which can harm people's health, delicate machinery and equipment. Polished concrete prevents this by protecting the concrete from wear and tear.
Polished concrete is an excellent choice if you want to save on your energy bills. It can hold heat obtained from solar gain (natural warmth through windows etc.) and can cool rooms when it gets too hot. Its light reflective properties maximize and improve the ambient lighting in any space. The long lifespan and durability of polished concrete will save you money and time in replacing your flooring every couple of years.
Polished concrete is extremely versatile in terms of finishes. You can choose the level of shine and sheen as well as stone exposure and add colors to the floor to enhance its natural look.
Our next step is to repair any cracks and holes in the floor. Some of the repairs might be visible on the finished floor but we ensure they are tastefully incorporated into it.
Once the stones are exposed and the floor is thoroughly cleaned we start passing over the floor with various diamond grits, from coarse to very fine. When we are done, we fill up any cracks and holes and apply a concrete densifier.
When the densifier is fully cured we begin the polishing process using different resin pads until we reach the desired sheen.
The final step is cleaning it, applying a stain guard and burnishing the floor.
Polishing concrete Memphis TN is a process where attention to detail is required. Therefore, we start every polishing project with a comprehensive floor preparation.
During this step we mechanically grind the floor to remove any traces of old paints, oils, stains, dirt and grime. At the same time we also expose the stone in the concrete mix.
