POLISHED CONCRETE

CHARACTERISTIC

Whilst getting a concrete floor for your flat or home may, at the first glance, seem an economic solution suitable when one is short of means, you will eventually realise that apart from looking great, polished concrete also works perfectly. In the past, concrete floors would be encountered mainly in industrial spaces, garage settings or administrative buildings. Lovers of pure industrial design today let concrete still more often flood the floors of their homes, too. A polished concrete floor is a lifelong, faithful and almost non-ageing companion. It works best with spacious rooms featuring large windows and straight lines. Also combination with metal and glass underlines its beauty. Jasa polishes concrete surfaces using a diamond-based grinding technique called TERCO (an American system with a tradition going back to 1937), maximising their excellent and unique qualities. Floors can be infused with pigments of various colours, too, provided with a logo or polished to ultra-high sheen. It is possible to deliver a brand new floor or revitalize the existing one.
