1.   Industrial

If you’re choosing a concrete floor finish for your warehouse or industrial facility, the warehouse finish is a popular choice. This two-step grind and seal process includes a special treatment that creates a harder surface for industrial applications. When we apply the warehouse finish, we will patch all of the cracks and holes with a durable epoxy before finishing it with our acrylic sealer to reduce surface erosion. The end result is a functional, attractive low-reflectivity finish.

2.   Satin Finish

For a professional showroom finish, we can add three steps of additional fine grinding before applying the same acrylic sealer we use with the Warehouse finish. Your floors will be left with an easy-to-maintain satin finish with medium reflectivity. For a look that is clean and attractive for commercial applications, our satin finish is unmatched.

1.   Urethane Coating in Matte, Satin, or Gloss Finish

If your floors are frequently subjected to food spills or chemicals, a urethane coating can protect them while creating an attractive finish. After applying your warehouse finish, our concrete floor polishing team can apply a durable, chemically-resistant urethane coating in either matte, satin, or gloss finish. The gloss finish gives your floors the stunning look of polished concrete. Our urethane coating won’t yellow, is resistant to UV damage, and requires less frequent maintenance than our other finishes. It’s also completely impenetrable.

2.   High Gloss Finish

For the ultimate high polish look that resists many chemicals, food spills, and drink spills, our high gloss finish is the best available option. We apply two additional steps to our satin finish before burnishing to achieve this highly reflective finish that works well for grocery stores, restaurants, and break rooms alike.

Unlike the impenetrable urethane coating, high gloss finish is a higher maintenance option that requires semi-annual maintenance depending on the level of foot traffic your floors see. But the payoff is a sleek look your customers will love.

Concrete Floor Staining

In addition to concrete floor finishes, ACT Restoration also offers a collection of concrete floor stains and dyes in a wide variety of designs and intensities. From acid stains to vibrant dyes, many options are available to complete the look of your concrete floor finish.
