What is Polished Concrete?

Polished Concrete

In a world where first impressions matter, you need to be on your toes constantly, especially if you’re a business owner. When customers walk in the door, you only have a few seconds before an opinion forms in their minds. What do people notice when they walk in the door of a business establishment? They notice the lighting, the furnishings, the atmosphere, the music if any is playing, the plant life, the office personnel and how he or she or any other workers nearby are dressed and appear, the smells, and the floors–all in a matter of seconds. An impression is formed that you will never have a chance to replace. You might overcome it, but the first impression is always there like the lure of a chocolate chip cookie.

WHAT IS CONCRETE?

Concrete is the most popular artificial material on Earth. In fact, humans use more concrete than steel, wood, plastics, and aluminum combined. It built ancient civilizations. It continues to build civilizations today.

Concrete can be made of different ingredients but in essence it’s a bunch of rocks or gravel mixed together with water and cement (a substance made out of lime and clay). Invented by the Romans, they used it to build one of the largest empires ever known to man that lasted for centuries–thanks in part to this unassuming substance.

WHAT IS POLISHED CONCRETE?

We’ve all walked on regular concrete. In fact, we probably walk on concrete almost every day. It feels rough and textured. Concrete is by nature porous unless special ingredients are added. Polished concrete is regular concrete treated with a specially-formulated concrete densifier to fill the natural pores that are inherent in concrete to smooth it out and improve its aesthetics and functionality.
