There are two types of Polished Concrete that we offer for outdoors 1. a Grind and Seal (G&S) which can be finished in a matte, semi or high-gloss or 2. Honed concrete which is available in a matte finish only.
The price will still vary depending on the level of stone exposure you want to see in your floor and the quality of sealant (budget or premium). If you are happy not to see much stone showing through your slab it is cheaper – full stone exposure means grinding down further and is more labour intensive and therefore costs more. You also have the option of grouting the floor should you wish to have a more refined surface.
A non-slip grit can be added to the top coat of the sealer in a G&S to minimise slips. All products we use are UV stable.
The honed concrete has a penetrating sealer applied which protects the concrete and helps prevent staining etc. The sealer is absorbed into the concrete so you cannot see it on top unlike the grind and seal option.
