Brisbane Retaining Walls
Polished concrete is a type of flooring that has been polished with various methods in order to give it a shine and make it more attractive. This type surface can be utilized for driveways, patios, flooring and walls, including countertops.
Polished concrete is a relatively new type of surface that was developed in the early 2000s. It was first used in commercial projects because it offers many advantages over traditional concrete surfaces, including:
- It is easy to maintain and clean due to its natural finish
- It does not require sealing since it has no pores or voids
- It is more resistant to water damage than other types of concrete
Why do people use it? Polished concrete is a smooth, flat surface with a low coefficient of expansion. It can be scratched by sharp objects such as nails and screw heads, but will not absorb moisture or become slippery when wet. Polished concrete is used in areas where low-moisture conditions are present, such as swimming pools and sidewalks. Give us a call for a free estimate.
