Polished Concrete in St. Louis
Looking for options to enhance your concrete without resurfacing it? The versatility of polished concrete makes it an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications. Polished Concrete is concrete that has been mechanically ground and honed with diamond abrasives. There are multiple levels of polished concrete that range from a satin or honed appearance to a highly polished near mirror like shine.
Because there is no coating to chip, flake or peel, its durability is second to none. Polished concrete can also be colored with dyes to create beautiful color tones in the concrete that simulate polished stone. This form of concrete finishing is quickly becoming the concrete floor of choice. Whether you have a residential basement floor, or a commercial showroom let Customcrete help you pick the style and level of polished concrete to best fit your needs.
