Is there a difference between Sealed and Polished concrete?Grinding and polishing is more expensive, as the floor surface must be ground with through a succession of finer grits grinding until a desired surface evenness and exposure of underlying stone is achieved. This is followed by a process of application of a chemical densifier. The densifier hardens concrete and also makes it stronger. After this the surface is honed using polishing wheels. Each grind involves an increase in the fineness until the desired smoothness or polish is achieved. This is then followed by a coat of penetrating sealant. It may be superior and lasting but it is also more expensive. A better, cheaper and just as effective alternative is to option for grind and seal concrete floor. We offer both.
