Polished and Sealed Concrete
Polished concrete is a sharp look that leaves you with an exceptionally smooth surface, making it ideal for cleaning. This is popular among our residential clients as well as our commercial clients due to its durability, low maintenance and sharp look. Polished concrete is finished with a sealer than helps prevent absorption of moisture and staining. Polished Concrete fits well with the trendy industrial look and exceptionally versatile with furniture and decorations. It looks great with some greenery as well to create a classy yet earthy look.
Pouring a chemical wash over your concrete can create a variety of outcomes, including changes in color and appearance of the concrete. This is a good option for those who are wanting to have a concrete flooring with a bit more character. There are many different looks we are able to achieve with a chemical wash, which will be dependent on your preference. Our team at Tulsa Area Concrete are happy to show you different swatches so that you can pick the type of chemical wash that will suit your area best.
Popular amongst our commercial clients, epoxy coatings create a smooth look whilst being able to retain heavy loads without damage. It is essentially a high-performance coating that can withstand high levels of traffic and resistance to wear and tear that a commercial or industrial operation may have. It is a smooth finish which means that it is easy to clean and maintain, generally only requiring repairs or attention every 2 to 3 years in high traffic areas. As the coating is thick, it also acts as a stain repellant, making it very popular amongst mechanics, or those who are prone to leaks onto their flooring.
Brook finishes are course, which results in a non-slip finish generally suited to exterior concrete. It is popular for footpaths, patios and pool decking areas due to it rough textured surface. It is not the most visually appealing finish, but it is a safe option for the areas that are prone to water coverage. It is used more for traction than its visual appeal, but you do have the ability to have your concrete colored in conjunction with a broom finish to give it a more pleasant look.
