Polished concrete floors allow the natural beauty and luster to shine through without hiding or masking imperfections. Diamond abrasives deliver deep, crisp, clear finishes on concrete floors that are the hallmark of a diamond polished concrete.
Our polishing method mechanically refines every concrete surface by removing the top cement layer and exposing more of the sand and rock layer beneath. The existing concrete is prepared with diamond grinding machines of various sizes and weights. The result is a floor with an evenly polished surface that is of high quality, and both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
The method in which to achieve this mechanical polish is by using diamond tooling in several steps, with gradually moving to a finer grit, similar to how you would use sandpaper. The process consists of grinding, refinement, impregnation (concrete hardener), and finally polishing. This procedure gives the surface a nice luster and all the qualities which characterize an Austin Stained Concrete Floor. See our photo gallery of Polished Concrete Floors in Austin, Texas.
Stained concrete floors offer the consumer a variety in color options. Mixing and blending allows the customer to create a unique personal style. Stained and polished concrete floors offer many benefits.
We recommend annual professional maintenance be performed to keep your floors in peak condition.
Available in a variety of colors, designer overlayed concrete floors are in high demand because of their versatility and durability. However, unlike polished concrete floors, they do require a bit more care.
Concrete overlays are created by using a self-leveling cementitious product of 1/4-3/8" thickness. We profile the surface with 16 grit diamond tooling to prepare for an epoxy and sand broadcast used as the binding agent. We then pour the cementitious concrete throughout the designated areas of the home or commercial building.
Concrete overlays should not be confused with “micro toppings” a process frequently used by builders as an overlay or polished concrete look-alike.

As you can see, there are many flooring options for decorative concrete floors. Scoring is another choice that adds appeal. Scoring is the process of mechanically adding geometrical lines directly on to the concrete surface.They can add character to a floor by giving them an old world appearance, as well as symmetry for a
modern or minimalist decor.
Every good project starts with good preparation. That is why flooring demolition and preparation are so important. We make sure your new polished, stained, or overlayed concrete floor begins with a smooth clean surface. With our state of the art diamond polishing system, we begin with a coarse grind to remove items commonly found beneath floor covering such as glue and mastic. Depending on the type of concrete flooring you choose, we go through a series of steps and various grit grinding pads until we reach the luster selected or simply prepare the surface to receive a new floor covering such as tile, wood or carpet.
