Frequently Asked Questions

Does it matter how the concrete is laid?

Yes, it is vital!

Perfectly placed concrete is essential to achieving a Perfect Polish finish.

When considering polished concrete for your home or business, whether it is a new build or a renovation, it is important to know that one of the most crucial parts of the process to your polished concrete floor, is the initial placement and laying of the concrete.

When concrete is placed correctly, your polished concrete floor will be flatter with more uniform aggregate exposure, will have less air holes and require less repairs.

At Perfect Polish we can work with the concrete contractors and builders to ensure that the concrete is placed as per our recommendations. By starting with a perfect canvas, we can provide you a perfect polish finish.


Is Coated/Urethane Sealed Concrete the same as Polished Concrete?

No.

Coated/urethane sealed concrete might be cheaper initially, but it requires maintenance and repairs, so will cost you more in the long term.  It is known to peel, chip, mark and/or discolour easily.

Polished Concrete uses a process of refinement, giving you a durable and easy to clean, hard wearing surface which is natural, modern and stylish.  It will not chip, dent or discolour, like a coated floor can, and will last you a lifetime.
