Polished concrete looks great with a sheen like a real marble floor but all the benefits of concrete including toughness, long life, and affordability. It's a natural for high footfall spaces such as hospitals and workplaces but has also increasingly found its way into homes because it retains its good looks and light reflecting quality no matter how much your tribe runs, skateboards, or cycles on it. Plus it has great green credentials because typically a polished concrete floor uses the existing concrete slab as a base and requires no new materials apart from those used in the polishing process.
Polished concrete doesn't grow mold, and is a great solution for places where dust mite or allergens are a problem because its mirror smooth seamless surface doesn't give particles a place to take hold. Tampa Concrete Stamping are experts in polished concrete and will be happy to visit your premises to assess the condition of existing concrete slabs, or the flooring that will support a new one so as to give you an accurate and affordable quote.
New or Retrofit
A polished concrete floor can either be a new floor or a retrofit onto an existing concrete slab. Knowing that the final goal is a polished concrete surface can actually make the job quicker and thus cheaper with a new floor compared to retrofitting older and aged concrete but both will produce the same excellent results. If you want to polish an old slab but it has degraded badly or is made using an aggregate mix too rough to polish satisfactorily the team at Tampa Concrete Stamping can pour an overlay for you, using the original slab as a base layer, and polishing the new surface.
