This is a common question, “Can I polish concrete at home or on a building?” So the overwhelming answer is “yes, it can be done, and it’s done very well”. In this article, we’ll address three common issues to help you determine if a concrete polishing discs is right for you.
Can all concrete be polished?
Almost every concrete product can be polished to show a smooth, reflective and striking surface. As long as the concrete has time to cure (if it is newly poured) and is structurally strong, it can be honed and polished to reveal its instinctive beauty and character. Concrete is made from a mixture of cement, coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, chemical admixture and water. This is a collection of courses that give strength and beauty to concrete.
Aggregate is a mixture of different stone materials contained in a concrete mixture. These blends have enhanced strength properties, but are also beautifully honed by concrete polishing discs to give the concrete a unique spot appearance that we like.
All concrete has aggregates and all concrete surfaces can be polished using modern techniques that do not require the use of wax or acrylic. As long as the concrete is structurally sound, it can be polished to give it an impressive appearance.
Will the cement floor make my home cold?
Like every flooring product, concrete has unique heat transfer characteristics. Concrete is no colder than ceramic tiles, stone or slate. In fact, buildings with concrete floors can take advantage of the fact that the concrete heats up slowly and the heat is lost slowly. If you are very smart about this, the concrete floor can act as a passive, heat exchange heat sink. They can actually help you reduce heating and cooling costs. How is this done?
Concrete has thermal properties that allow it to store and radiate heat. Make sure you get the most out of the window through the window during the winter, allowing the concrete floor to absorb and radiate heat throughout the day and night. In the summer, you can take advantage of the fact that concrete takes time to heat up, even if it is hot during the day, to enjoy its cooling capacity.
If you want to add luxury to your new home, you can install the concrete floor with a shallow hot cable throughout the winter to use as a comfortable heated floor. It is also very beautiful now and very comfortable.
If the heated floor is beyond your budget, you can still use the beautiful carpet to make the room more comfortable and provide comfort under your feet. In addition, the advantage of using a raised floor is that changing the carpet is not an easy task when you want to change the decor. Your beautiful concrete floor will perfectly match the direction of the next interior.
Can the uneven concrete surface be polished by concrete polishing discs?
In any place where concrete can be used as a structural element, the surface can be polished by concrete polishing discs as on a concrete floor. Therefore, concrete benches, concrete tables and even stairs are all viable options for you to explore.
The concrete retaining wall can be polished using concrete polishing discs on the top and side, and the top becomes a long garden bench. This will add a bunch of extra outdoor seating space when friends are past and you are drinking some cold drinks.
Concrete open areas and garage floors can be polished to provide a more visually appealing entertainment and workspace. In addition, the polished concrete floor will reflect light well and help illuminate the entire space. When you work under a car or on a workbench, you will be able to see what you are doing.
