POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORING SERVICE

The polished concrete floor is quickly turning out to be the flooring of choice in residential, commercial, and retail environments. Residential and commercial polished concrete floors can bring standard concrete flooring to an aesthetically appealing floor. The concrete can be colored while being positioned through integral color or the use of dry-shake color hardeners and then polish. Dry shake colors give an adorning appearance to industrial polished concrete flooring. The existing concrete can be colored by concrete dyes or concrete acid staining and polished.

In addition, the concrete can be polished uncolored to create a high-wear resistant polished concrete floor. The polished concrete will change weak, badly stained concrete into a beautiful surface that is easy to clean and maintain.

DYED CONCRETE SERVICE

Duluth Polished Concrete Company specializes not only in acid staining and polishing concrete, but dying concrete too. Dyed concrete floors provide a wide range of customizable options and are ideal for both residential and commercial flooring. Concrete dyes exceed the color range of concrete acid stains, as they have much more rich colors that can be blended to make an even greater spectrum of colors for your concrete floors.

Concrete dyes are formulated using extremely small color molecules and, with the correct solvent or water, penetrate any cement surface when properly prepared. Here at Duluth Polished Concrete Company, we use environment-friendly floor polishing systems and concrete dyes that can make both a translucent acid-like appearance and vibrant colors of the rainbow.

Floor dyes can be used on standard concrete floors, complete colored concrete, and dry-shake color hardeners. Multiple color dyes can be used to make floor designs without the use of a saw cut to split colors as needed with acid stains. Concrete dyes can be used on top of each other if multiple colors are desired. Flooring dyes, together with our polished concrete systems, create dyed concrete floors higher than a dye system with a sealer.

Advantages of Dyed Concrete:

Concrete dyes can be used on exposed polished concrete floors, as well as in a polished concrete cream finish.

CONCRETE ACID STAINING SERVICE

Duluth Polished Concrete Company has a large-scale experience with concrete acid staining of residential and commercial flooring and polished concrete flooring. Once our concrete acid staining and polishing process is done, you no longer have to worry about the acid stains walking off as you do with a sealer or wax application. Concrete acid staining is built from two main components, acids, and metallic salts.

The acid opens the pores of the concrete letting the penetration of the metallic salts.

N

Metal salts chemically interact with the calcium hydroxide in cement to create a permanent color change that infiltrates the surface of concrete floors.

N

The staining of concrete acid is limited to eight colors and variations of each. Colors are usually earth tones in nature. Several colors can be reached through a variety of methods. Our polished concrete system, together with concrete acid staining, will give the concrete a translucent permanent variegated mottled look that is UV stable. The staining of concrete is a great way to change the color of existing uncolored or colored concrete residential or commercial flooring that has been in place for at least 26 days.

Concrete acid staining and our ecological-friendly concrete polishing systems are far superior to any application of acid stain and application of sealer. Moisture will not affect the appearance and there is no possibility of peeling as with sealers. We provide a warranty for material and labor.
