Polishing is a great option if you are looking for something that will add style, functionality, and durability to your concrete flooring. Ashton specializes in giving you floors you will love. We are experts in the multi-step process required for a great result.
Ashton polishes floors using our proprietary process that has been perfected over many years. The process will vary based on the condition, hardness, and other attributes of the existing concrete. Our experience will guarantee you get the best floors possible.
Polishing Consists of These Major Steps:
We use a high-tech grinding machine with diamond heads to rid your floors of all unwanted substances like grout and glue. This process also flattens the floor.
This is a chemical application that fills in the pores of the concrete, making it denser. This allows the honing and polishing processes to be successful.
The same grinding equipment is used with less aggressive diamonds to further the refinement process. At this point, the floor is refined enough to stop dusting and will have a minimal reflection.
This is the final step in the process and can conclude with many different levels of refinement. The more steps that are taken here, the higher the reflectivity and shine will be.

Q&A With Ashton’s Flooring Expert
What Do You Want Home and Business Owners to Keep in Mind If They Are Considering Polishing Their Floors?
Polished concrete is beautiful! It is important to keep in mind that the existing concrete is what will be there when we are done. It is difficult to determine the amount of aggregate exposure your floors will have or the coloration of the floor until the grinding process starts because every slab is different, but that is what makes these floors great! They are natural, warm, and one of a kind.
Why would you recommend Ashton over some other companies or even a DIY approach for polishing?
Ashton has many years of experience and knowledge under our belt. We understand how to deal with unknowns that will inevitably be part of your project. When an issue arises in the middle of the floor, it can make or break your project. Our experience will minimize those issues and ensure you are happy with the outcome no matter what pops up.
