A recent Polished Concrete Showroom Floor for a rental company in Omaha, Nebraska, had its fair share of challenges. That might be an understatement.
A previous concrete polishing contractor was originally hired to polish the concrete. While we make it a point never to name specific companies, it is worth mentioning that their craftsmanship is the worst we’ve seen in years.
A polished concrete showroom floor, if it is truly being used as a showroom, has got to be grouted. It is a crucial step that cannot be ignored. Without grouting, the open pores in the concrete will detract from the overall shine. The first picture below is exactly how we found it when we arrived in Omaha.
As you can see, there is absolutely no defining reflection. The company felt as if their polished concrete floor was absolutely perfect. Really.
In order to correct the problem, the Glossy Floors crew had to start from the beginning. The floor had to be grouted 3 different times in order to fill in all the holes.
Just for clarity, (No pun intended), Glossy Floors uses a grout coat on almost every polished concrete floor. The need arises when the sand in the concrete dislodges from within. It creates tiny, sometimes microscopic, holes that prevent the floor from looking uniform. Imagine having a mirror with hundreds of tiny little holes in it.
As you can see, the polished concrete showroom floor turned out awesome and we left with yet another extremely happy customer!
