Polished Concrete, Refinishing, & Restoration

Southern States Refinishing has over 30 years of industry experience. We’re experts at renovating aging, cracked concrete floors and turning them into polished concrete flooring masterpieces. Using specialized diamond concrete grinding equipment, we remove paint, glue, mastic and other unsightly matter leaving a clean smooth surface. Transform that dull damaged concrete to a work of art. Stained concrete is another great alternative to other flooring options. They provide the perfect flooring in basements. Plus, they are kid, pet and spill proof.  

Concrete Polishing

We have the right concrete refinishing machines to refinish, hone, stain & polish concrete floors. This job in Roswell needed complete rehab. Layers of paint and glue covered the concrete surface. We used our 800-pound concrete grinder and special diamonds to cut through the mess.

Completed Concrete Honing

After the rough concrete grinding, we honed the concrete with 30grit, 60grit, 100grit and last 150grit. Which left a smooth concrete surface. Sealing & burnishing the concrete leaves a very durable, easy-to clean concrete floor that is both long lasting & affordable.

Benefits of Concrete Polishing

Polished concrete flooring offers many advantages over traditional home or office floor options. Not only is it easy-to-clean, but it is stronger than other flooring alternatives as well as also eco-friendly. Commercial and industrial facilities benefit from concrete polishing because it meets OSHA guidelines due to its non-slip characteristics.

Beats Polished Concrete

Beats concrete polishing involves a refined process that incorporates polished concrete technology with the only two-component concrete guard on the market. This guard system outlasts traditional guards hands down. One of the most innovative systems to hit the flooring industry in years, polished concrete does have some limitations. When many contractors choose polished concrete, in most cases they are doing so without really understanding the maintenance that polished concrete must receive to maintain its luster.

Specialty Concrete Floor Guards

We now use high performance guards to hold up to everyday use without needing to be reapplied every month or so. Burnishing is no longer necessary to keep that shine so you’ll save time and money after the application. Our process includes applying and burnishing the concrete guard after polishing the concrete. This guard acts as a sacrificial protective layer and must be reapplied frequently to keep the concrete protected and shiny. Traditional concrete guards do not hold up well to acidic or caustic materials and liquids, which cause premature failure and staining.

Before Application of Concrete Floor Guard

Here’s an example of a store that needed our 2-step concrete guard surface protection for their polished & stained concrete floors. Their maintenance schedule included applying a topical single component system every two months and then burnishing it into the floor’s surface. Even with their best efforts at maintenance, this floor would not keep its luster. It continued to stain, especially when broken items fell off of store shelving.

After Application of Concrete Surface Protection

Here is the same store’s concrete floors after applying the high performance two-component guard system. No more burnishing every few months to keep the floor looking good. This system lasts longer and looks better than standard polished concrete. Better yet, there’s no need for re-application.
