Exposed aggregate reveals the true beauty hidden in ordinary concrete. It can be compared to a piece of stone or terrazzo transformed by grinding, honing, and polishing. A plain, unremarkable surface, has been stripped away to reveal the exceptional beauty lying underneath. In the case of concrete, that beauty is in the form of decorative aggregate.

The polished concrete never needs waxes or coatings.

For 10 years now, retail, warehouse, and office facilities have installed polished concrete floors instead of higher maintenance and more expensive marble, granite, tile, linoleum, and coated concrete (epoxy coating, paint, etc.). And now homeowners are taking note and are seeking these smooth, high luster floors that can replace the natural look of polished stone for their homes.

Surface sealers for exterior applications should be acrylic to allow moisture in the slab to escape. Solvent-based acrylics generally perform better than water-based products for outdoor use. Silicone-based acrylics generally perform better than water based products for outdoor use. Silicone based penetrating sealers are recommended for applications where shinny or wet look is not desirable. A good indoor application consists of one coat of solvent-based acrylic followed by a topcoat application of water-based acrylic.

With the correct use of sealer, the moisture within the concrete does not become trapped.

Our process at HartzStone uses man and machinery in balance to achieve the best results for the concrete finish or polish. It removes grit, grime, and previous floor finishes while sealing in exceptional durability. This creates a surface with exceptional traction characteristics and a bright luster.

The Many Benefits to You
- Brighter Look
- Cleaner Environment
- Harder Surface
- Greater Stain Resistance
- Lower Maintenance Costs

The concrete is treated with a densifying agent that chemically alters the makeup of the concrete, making the surface progressively harder over time. This process may save you thousands of dollars verses other floor finishes. The agent penetrates into your floor, filling in the microscopic holes and adding density to the concrete.  privacy  legal
