General

Is polished concrete easy to look after?

Yes! It’s very low maintenance. Any neutral PH cleaner works to clean polished concrete. And, if it’s installed correctly, the surface won’t collect a lot of dirt or dust.

How do you work out the cost?

We take into account things like:

  • Which finish you have chosen
  • How big the job is (in m²)
  • Complexity of work required

Then we’ll factor in the location, time of year, and which hours we can perform the job in.

Flooring

How long does concrete flooring last for?

This depends on the type of concrete flooring being installed. Some general lifespans before the flooring will start to need maintenance are:

  • Grind and Seal — 5 to 10 years
  • Polished concrete — 10- to 20 years
  • Epoxy — more than 10 year when installed on new concrete

These lifespans are for good quality concrete. Softer concrete will shorten the lifespan.

How long does concrete flooring take to install?

This depends on the exact details of your project and the type of concrete flooring being installed. For example, some typical timeframes are:

  • Grinding and sealing generally take 1 day per 50-80 square metre.
  • Polishing generally takes 1 day per 20-25 square metres
  • Larger jobs can have multiple machines and additional staff allocated to produce 1,000 square metres in a week if needed
  • Larger jobs are generally quicker per square metre
