We’ll Work With You and Help You Understand The Process of Our Concrete Polishing Services in Waukesha, WI, and all the Southeast
If you’re looking for a way to make your concrete shine, look no further. Decorative Concrete Surfacing is here to help with the highest-quality concrete polishing services in Waukesha, WI. We understand that different types of concrete have different needs, so we start by assessing the “type” of concrete you are on and then recommend the most appropriate level of diamond grinding and burnishing for your specific flooring needs. A series of increasingly finer diamond-tipped grinders are run over the concrete in successive stages. This gives the concrete the desired surface gloss, which will vary according to customer needs. During our grinding process, we will add “grout” to the floor. This will add to the floor’s overall smoothness as well as add shine and longer life to the floor and also create a lower maintenance floor. As our grinding diamond numbers go up, we will “Densify” the concrete. This not only makes the concrete considerably harder but it will also help add luster and sheen to the floor again helping make it easy to maintain as well as add longevity to the surface. The final step is to do a high speed burnish on the surface. This will add depth and luster to the overall floor. If you are interested in the process, work with us today to get started.

Types of Concrete Floor Polishing
This process is more labor intensive as we have to grind over the floor usually 2-3 times to get all the stone showing. As a general rule, we grind down 4-5mm depending on the slab. This is a more decorative look and is often used in homes and showrooms.
Cream Finish is typically for newly poured concrete that is poured to very stringent specifications so that there are no undulations throughout the floor where aggregate can show through. This is a very hard finish to achieve and it is up to the contractor to pour the perfect slab for us to polish.
As we generally use your existing concrete, you are often bound by whatever colors appear in your cement and the stone as we start to grind. If you are unhappy with the existing color or you want something to tie in with other furnishings etc., we have a couple of options.
Salt and Pepper
This is often referred to in the industry as a salt and pepper look. It is where we grind the top 1-3mm of the surface, usually going over the entire floor just once. There is often no stone exposure in some areas, and other areas have a little or a lot depending on how the slab was poured. This is often used for the industrial look, or for garages, restaurants, outdoor areas, etc., and is a more cost-effective option.
