Polished concrete is known for its beauty, durability, and low maintenance. With new advances in installation and material technology, it is fast becoming the most popular flooring choice in the Central Florida area. Most people are familiar with polished concrete in commercial settings, but we are now seeing a dramatic increase in the installation request within the residential sector. Homeowners are attracted to the high luster, low maintenance, and endless color options of polished concrete. New or old concrete can be made into a no-wax, high gloss, stain and scratch resistant floor using a system of grinding, nano densifiers and sealers. Eco-friendly conscious builders, property owners, and renovators are choosing polished concrete for several reasons. Because concrete is already present, additional flooring materials do not need to be produced or shipped, thus reducing the environmental footprint of the project. The process and materials used to create polished concrete emit very little to no VOC which reduces air contaminants and improves indoor air quality. Polished concrete is also energy efficient due to its intrinsic ability to moderate temperature fluctuations reducing the energy consumed by HVAC systems. The reflective nature of polished concrete also reduces the amount of illumination typically required by reflecting the already existing natural and artificial light and improving the efficiency of the lighting system. When all of these factors are combined, polished concrete is the obvious choice for going GREEN and earning LEED points. Select Surface Solutions offers a line of polished concrete materials, equipment, and technical support for the installation of polished concrete floors for your project…large or small.
