Concrete Polishing in Manhattan
Concrete comes in a number of different consistencies. There’s hard concrete (Above 6000 PSI), Medium concrete (Between 4000-6000 PSI), and there’s Soft concrete (Less than 4000 PSI). Soft concrete is usually found in buildings that pre-date the 1950s. In newer developments, medium to hard concrete is more prevalent. The softer the concrete the more densifier is needed to be applied to your concrete during our process to make sure it’s hard. Densifiers can make your concrete up to 10x as hard when fully dry. Medium to hard concrete needs less densifier during our process as it’s already a hard surface to cut.
We offer a full spectrum of floor polishing options for spaces of all types and sizes. Our diverse clientele ranges from homeowners seeking a simple polish to investment brokers looking for a seal and stain for their shopping mall’s floors.
Epoxy finishes are trendy and work very well in metallic finishes and matte finishes. Metallic finish epoxy gives you that marbling look. Matte finish epoxy gives you just a flat look to the floor with no pop to it.

What are the advantages for an Epoxy Top-Coat?
Epoxy coatings are durable, strong adhesives that can be used for a variety of purposes for floors and countertops. When the epoxy resin and polyamide are applied together they harden to create an everlasting chemical reaction. Epoxy coatings can be applied to a multitude of surfaces, and both preserve and restore your spaces to give them a unique look and finish.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Will this create a lot of dust?
A: It’s all a dust process but our dust extractors suck up the dust as soon as it’s being produced by the grinding machines.
Q: How long does the sealer last?
A: All natural water-based sealers on the market last between 1-2 years of constant use.
Q: What should I do to maintain my new look concrete floors in the meantime?
A: We provide our clients with a gallon of neutral cleaner soap. We use this soap for all concrete and stone surfaces. It’s neutral on the PH scale so all it does is clean the stone and not affect it in any negative ways over time. Use a very little bit of neutral cleaner soap, cold water, and a clean rag. Wet the stone surface and then dry it off with the same rag (damp).
Q: How many coats of sealer do you apply?
A: We apply 2 coats of sealer at most. If you apply any more than that it will just sit on top of the already sealed stone.
Q: The sealer protects my concrete from stains?
A: Yes, although it won’t protect your stone from etch marks, etch marks are caused from acidic substances such as lemon, wine, vinegar and anything in that family of household items.
