POLISHED CONCRETE COST & INFORMATION
POLISHED CONCRETE FLOOR FINISHES
Concrete always contains aggregate as part of the mix structure. If you are having a new concrete slab poured or if you a planning to add a concrete topping to your existing floor, then you can pre choose the type of aggregate colour and size. If you have an existing concrete floor, then it will have the aggregate already embedded. Our concrete polishing and grinding process can expose the aggregate or even leave it hidden, its the clients choice. You may also choose to remove your existing floor tiles in which we can carry out for you and polish the slab instead of fitting a new tiled floor.
The cost of polished concrete can be likened to the cost of new floor tiles. A decent floor tile will start at around £40.00 per square metre and run up to around £80.00 for more high end products. Fitting costs including adhesive and grout cost around £40.00 per square metre totalling a figure from £80.00 upwards to £120.00 and beyond. Polished concrete starts at around £60.00 and upwards depending on what finish our client requires.
- Cream prices from £60.00 per square metre
- Salt and pepper from £75.00 per square metre
- Fully exposed from £90.00 per square metre
In most cases by removing the 3-5 mm of slurry on the top of the concrete will fully expose the aggregate and produce and organic specked look.
NO EXPOSED AGGREGATE
For clients who prefer a plain. consistent surface for their concrete floor, we use a finer grinding process to keep the smooth surface of the concrete visible.
SIGHTLY EXPOSED AGGREGATE
If clients want to expose a bit of aggregate but not have it dominate the appearance of the floor, then we can grind the concrete just far enough to expose the tips of the aggregate.
HIGH MECHANICALLY POLISHED CONCRETE
High mechanically polished concrete has a clean, slick, modern look. We use a process of applying a concrete hardener/densifier, grouting and polishing with finer and finer diamond segments and polishing pads to achieve this striking effect without the need to apply a topical coating that in time can scuff and wear. The finished floor is then protected from accidental spills and staining with the use of quality penetrating sealers.
NON SLIP FINISHES
If your concrete is sloped or is subject to wet conditions you mat want to consider a non slip option that we have in our range of finishes.
