First Step: Choose your Aggregate Level. The polishing process usually includes grinding down the concrete surface to reveal different levels of aggregate within the concrete or the addition of decorative aggregates, such as recycled glass, landscaping stone, and others, seeded into the surface for decorative purposes. Depending on the diamond grit used to prep a polished a concrete floor, different levels of aggregate exposure can be achieved.
Second Step: Choose your Sheen Level. Because polishing is a multistep process, you can choose the level of sheen — from satin to high-gloss — that meets your maintenance and aesthetic requirements. This versatility makes polished concrete an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications.
