1. Allergy free ‐ up to 30% of the population has chemical sensitivities stemming from the “sick building syndrome” of the 1970s. Polished concrete contributes no noticeable volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the construction process, thereby improving indoor air quality.
  2. Light – the reflective nature of polished concrete reduces the amount of artificial illumination needed to create a light, bright space, thereby optimising the home for energy efficiency.
  3. Environment ‐ concrete is a fundamental part of every construction project ‐ whether it’s a new construction or a remodel. Adding any extra material to a project results in greater expenditure and environmental impact. Finishing the floor by simply polishing the existing concrete decreases the environmental footprint of the project by eliminating the need for additional coverings.
  4. Beauty – contemporary and stunningly beautiful, polished concrete floors are second to none in their appearance. Often mistaken for marble due to its smooth sleek surface, the aesthetics of polished concrete make it a viable option for most homes.
  5. Lifespan ‐ there is simply no comparison to other flooring systems when it comes to the durability of a polished concrete floor. The polishing process hardens and seals the floor, adding decades to its lifespan.
  6. Stain resistant ‐ once ground and polished, the density and strength of the concrete allows it to repel water, oil and other contaminants – making polished concrete a natural choice for high traffic areas such as kitchens, living spaces, outdoor entertaining areas and garages.
  7. Low maintenance – as oils and other liquids are repelled from permeating the concrete’s surface, maintenance is limited to regular cleaning.
  8. Cost effective ‐ polished concrete is one of the most economical, cost effective flooring alternatives on the market. The reduced costs associated with saved energy, reduced wear, limited maintenance, as well as its long lasting durability ensure polished concrete is a wise and economical choice.
