Why polish Concrete?



Why Owners Prefer Polished Concrete

When considering the Long-term maintenance cost of flooring options, owners find polished concrete to be a better return on investment.  A proper polished concrete floor is maintained by sweeping, mopping and occasionally burnishing.  Stripping and waxing is not required.  

VCT or carpet have a shorter lifespan, it’s then pulled up and replaced.  Polished concrete that is maintained will last outlast it’s alternatives, giving a better return on investment.

Why Design Professionals Prefer Polished Concrete

Architectural concrete is a versatile canvas for designers to work with.  Adding integral color, seeding objects, etching, and many other methods afford creativity while remaining practical.

Cutting down-time is important to keep a project on schedule.  Polished concrete in either an existing building or new build can cut days from the schedule.  In some cases, the polished concrete floor can be installed the same day as the concrete is placed.    

Why Builders Prefer Polished Concrete

Cutting labor, down-time and environmental impact is our mission statement.  A contractor understands that labor, down-time and waste all chip away at the profit.  If you can cut those costs, you will increase your profits.

Compared with alternatives, polished concrete gives a superior product with less labor, down-time and waste.  Green Umbrella Max Defense can be installed, in some cases, in half the time as a comparable flooring option.  Superior product in less time, with less labor and less envirmental impact.



Why The Earth Prefers Polished Concrete

At the end of a carpet or tile’s life span it is pulled up and thrown into a landfill.  More carpet or tile is manufactured, delivered and installed.  Polished concrete uses what is already in the building, either existing or new.  A concrete slab does not need to be covered, it can be processed and used as the flooring.  If a new owner or use of the building requires changing the flooring, that can be done by processing the floor again, or covering it, but polished concrete does not need to be thrown away at the end of its life.

Green Umbrella is built on green, renewable principles.  Our treatments are designed to give the highest quality product while being safe for the environment and the workers handling them.
