Westrock installs polished concrete floors in Winnipeg that are attractive, durable, and economical. We are known for providing high quality commercial and residential work that meets or exceeds industry standards.
When installing polished concrete flooring we do not cut corners. For each job we perform all the necessary steps are taken to properly prepare your floor to ensure a flawless, long lasting finish. This includes repairing all surface cracks, leveling uneven floors, grinding floors for desired exposure, densifying and hardening the surface, polishing, and sealing.
Turning Old Concrete Floors into Beautiful, Durable Finishes
At Westrock Concrete we are highly skilled at grinding down your floor to obtain the desired degree of shine or smoothness you prefer. We progressively grind and polish your floor before any decorative work is done to remove imperfections and stains. Hardeners and sealers are then used to level, increase the density of, and seal your floor.
Finishes for Polished Concrete Floors
There are a wide range of finishes available for commercial and residential use. Custom and unique quartz finishes can be obtained that are strong, durable and scratch resistant. You can choose between a matte or glossy finish and add a unique design such as a business logo.
Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors
High Durability – Polished concrete flooring is extremely strong and durable with a life-span that far surpasses other floor covers. It can withstand heavy foot and equipment traffic and is difficult to damage.
Less Maintenance – A properly installed, sealed and maintained polished concrete floor can last more than a hundred years. Dirt, grime, and other debris are easily wiped off. Damp mopping once a week to remove scuffs and water marks is all that is usually required. Additional maintenance may be required with other types of floor finishes. Polished concrete floors do not require any waxing or stripping to maintain the sheen.
Cost Effective – The long life-span of polished concrete far surpasses that of other floor coverings. This means money can be saved as there is no need to remove and replace worn or damaged flooring. The cost savings and long life expectancy of this type of flooring make it a popular choice for offices, schools, retail stores, clinics, and restaurants.
Aesthetics – The choice of colors and texture effects for concrete floors is limitless. We love to bring old drab concrete surfaces to life.
Sanitary – Properly polished and sealed concrete floors are non-porous meaning they prevent liquids and contaminants from getting into the concrete. This is why many health facilities as well as the hotel and hospital industries are choosing this type of flooring over others. Done properly, the surface of your floor will resist bacteria and other similar contaminants.
Safety – We frequently install non-slip epoxy coatings to help prevent slips and falls.
Brighter Spaces – High gloss finishes help increase ambient lighting. The increased light reflection makes this type of flooring ideal for retail outlets, showrooms, restaurants, and offices where a clean, bright, and professional image is required.
Chemical and Solvent Resistant – Polished concrete floors can be sealed with a chemical-resistant epoxy to protect your floor against harsh chemicals and solvents.
Environmentally Friendly – Polished concrete floors do not contain harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) unlike carpeting, wood laminate, and vinyl flooring materials.
Residential & Commercial Uses
Residential – Some of the most common uses for residential polished concrete surfaces include kitchens, dining areas, verandas, patios, porches, pool decks, basements, and garages. For Winnipeg homeowners, concrete polished flooring means the elimination of dust, easy maintenance, and environmental friendliness. Other benefits include abrasion resistance, reduced porosity, and the durable marble-like shine.
Commerical / Industrial – For commercial areas, polished concrete is more resistant to high foot traffic and needs little maintenance. The hard polished concrete finish is a very sustainable flooring option since it doesn’t require any adhesives or hazardous cleaners. Polished concrete is frequently used for retail outlets, restaurants, showrooms, warehouses, gyms, offices, hospitals, and clinics. We also install polished concrete in many industrial facilities such as manufacturing plants and distribution centres.
