who doesn\’t know Bob Vila when it comes to home repair and remodel?… He recommends concrete polishing, so you might want to consider in the future. Says Bob, \”Sleek, shiny, and easy to maintain, polished concrete is a great flooring choice, particularly for modern interiors. Itâs no wonder that homeowners have adopted polished concrete floors. Theyâre quick to install and donât cost a lot. They also wear well and require minimal maintenance. Years ago, youâd see polished concrete only in public spacesâat the mall, say, or in office building lobbiesâbut nowadays itâs a common sight in private residences\”. And to give you an idea of the process….\”Polishing concrete bears some similarities to sanding a hardwood floor. One of the big differences, however, is that with concrete you are going to make many more passes with the grinder than you would with a sander on a wood floor of a similar size. Also, you should expect to spray on a densifier or hardener between passes with the grinder.\” and for those Do-it-Yourselfers, here\’s what else Bob has to say, \”Renting a concrete grinder can be a little priceyâas much as $1,000 per week for the grinder itself, plus $250 per week for the edging polisher. That being the case, if you have a small job on your hands the most cost-effective option might be to hire a professional, as counterintuitive as that may seem.\”. so, feel free to give our Portland, Redmond, or Coburg locations a call… we can take a look, make some suggestions, and get you a price.
