What is polished concrete and how do you know if you are getting what you pay for? There are many concrete polishing companies that make up the industry with varying levels of experience, but there are certain questions you should be asking to make sure you are getting a high quality level of polish for the amount of money you are getting. When hiring concrete polishing companies for a project, it is wise to obtain 3 quotes and compare them word for word.
Questions that Should be Asked in a Polished Concrete Proposal:
- Steps – Skipping steps in the diamond sequence results in diminished refinement. Refinement is the whole point to polishing concrete and skipping steps compromises the quality of the floor resulting in a floor that doesn’t perform as long as it should.
- Densifier – There are different types of concrete densifier out there, some of them merely sit on the surface and can be shiny at first and wash off over time. On the other hand, a penetrating concrete floor densifer will last virtually forever.
- Self Perform or Subcontract – Concrete polishing companies that subcontract the work have no control over quality. It is common in the industry for a company to be a “certified polisher” of a brand and only get work subcontracted to them. Companies who self perform their work can control every aspect of the job and the ultimate quality that the customer receives.
