“Does Polished Concrete Crack?” is the most asked question here at the Polished Concrete Co. Our clients often arrive at our showroom feeling very confused with all the different information they have heard about Polished Concrete. We advise all our clients when choosing a Flooring Company to find one that is a member of a regulating body such as the Contract Flooring Association. You can then be sure you are going to not only get professional service but that you have the assurance that the correct technical information will be provided.
The Polished Concrete Co invite all our clients to visit our showroom so we can discuss the process and the aesthetic finish required by the client. Each project is individual and we provide a bespoke service. Installing seamless bespoke Polished Concrete takes time and effort using well trained registered Installers and high specification products.
