MCS's Commitment as a Concrete Polishing Contractor
At Manhattan Concrete Systems, we use only the best concrete polishing equipment. This yields the floors you envision for your commercial space. Our concrete polishing contractor portfolio encompasses some of the most prestigious buildings in New York City. We’ve had the honor of doing work for Empire State Building, 450 W. 14th Street, and 32 Avenue of the Americas. We’ve polished concrete for the likes of Calvin Klein, HSN, Akon Brands, and Alice + Olivia and others requiring flawlessness. There are many reasons why polished concrete is the finish of choice for many of the world’s most prestigious architects and structures.
Concrete is the Greenest Flooring Material on the Planet
That’s because most modern buildings are built on a concrete slab. Leveraging the original concrete saves trees, landfill space, and money. This provides you with a low maintaining, more durable floor that is every bit as beautiful as you want it to be. There is minimal pollution because concrete is generated in the quantity required for each job, which minimizes waste. As the concrete foundation has fulfilled its original function, the concrete is then crushed and recycled into aggregates. These aggregates can be used in new concrete pavements, back fill, or ground surface.
Commercial Concrete Polishing
Commercial concrete floors have no limitations. They can be built anywhere in your property as long as they satisfy your safety, durability, aesthetic appeal, and easy maintenance needs. We’ve installed polished concrete in hospitals, factories, schools, stadiums, warehouses, industrial plants, retail outlets, and more. Polished concrete floors are by far the most convenient option out there that is the most aesthetically pleasing too. Check out our portfolio of hundreds of these successful projects that our customers loved.
Industrial Concrete Polishing
If you have been to a sporting stadium, you have most likely stepped on shiny concrete coatings without ever noticing it. However, this conventional industrial treatment is also seen in residential garages, basements, hotels, hospitals, government buildings, commercial enterprises, and industrial environments. This is because compared to other flooring treatments, it is inexpensive and lasts much longer.
Advantages of Polished Concrete
Concrete polishing is an option for any facility. A natural and attractive surface produces a good image in any environment. The reliability and durability are admired in warehouses, manufacturing or public areas. The easy to clean surface makes the floor a common option for shopping malls, schools, museums, and other high traffic areas.
Polished Concrete is a cost effective choice for flooring, both in the short and long term. The cost of polished concrete flooring per square foot is low relative to other forms of flooring. More office and shopping facilities prefer polished concrete overlays as an alternative to tiles, marbles, linoleum or plastic coatings. Clients can range from high gloss to satin standard, which suits the cosmetic and maintenance specifications.
Installing Polished Concrete provides you the smoothest surface possible with minimum vibrations when transporting products with forklifts. In turn, polished concrete decreases the cost of repair and wear of forklifts and anything else with tires.
Not only does polished concrete look absolutely stunning, there are also many other advantages of going with polished concrete:
You will further improve the elegance of the concrete floor of your facility by applying a paint or dye prior to polishing, known as concrete staining. You can choose from a variety of shades, from neutral earth to deep jewel tones. Multiple colors may be used to make shapes. Either with the aid of stencils or with special staining techniques that generate a marble or “galaxy” effect.
Limitations of Concrete Polishing
Although polishing the concrete floor is a perfect solution in certain cases, it’s not exactly the best solution for every facility. Any environments that could need a particular approach include:
Polished Concrete Maintenence
Polished concrete floors are easy to maintain in outstanding condition. The most creative way to keep the floor clean is to use an automated scrubber system in tandem with our maintenance tips. Manual sweeping using a vacuum cleaner or a wet mop is good as well. In a few years, the floor gets a perfect patina. In order to preserve its original high gloss, further polishing is recommended.
Polished concrete is an incredibly smooth surface to walk or drive on. It doesn’t contain any dust since there are no crevices and is slip resistant. Polished concrete meets the highest requirements for the handling of electrical devices. It also has the best fire safety rating of all current flooring.
