Polished concrete is a sustainable material that is gaining in popularity. Concrete is typically slab on grade and used as a sub flooring. If it is polished and tinted to the homeowners taste and style there is no need for traditional flooring to be put over it. From creating a tiled effect with different colors to inlaying other materials such as glass the design possibilities are endless. Concrete is extremely durable, easy to clean and never needs to be replaced.

Polished concrete flooring is an eco-friendly flooring solution that can be used in any residential or commercial space. Having your floors polished concrete is a sustainable design option, as it makes use of materials that are already present in the space. Polished concrete floors are hard wearing and durable, they won’t chip as other flooring materials.
