A concrete floor no longer has to be the dusty, dull surface it once was. COLONIAL FLOOR AND STONE CARE in Ft. Lauderdale can transform your concrete into as sophisticated a surface as the finest marble, using the most advanced polishing and densifying systems and equipment.
Concrete polishing has finally come of age and is fast becoming the ultimate sophisticated, beautiful, yet practical floor for the home. Recent advances in polishing equipment allows Colonial Floor and Stone Care to grind new or old concrete surfaces to a new level of gloss finish that NEVER need waxes or coatings. This new hard dense surface allows a better use of light due to the surface reflectivity
Here is an easy was to understand concrete polishing. It is a lot like sanding a wood floor.Sophisticated polishing machines are fitted with progressively finer grits of diamond-
impregnated discs, like sand paper, to grind surfaces smooth to the desired degree of shine. During the grinding process a penetrating densifier or concrete hardner is applied. When surfaces are clean and dry, they are no more slippery than plain concrete surfaces.
A little explanation of the process… COLONIAL FLOOR AND STONE CARE is a Certified Applicator for both the Retroplate and the L&M FGS Permashine Systems. Our densification system consists of environmentally green concrete densifiers. This natural chemical application reacts with the poured concrete making the surface up to 400 times denser (stronger) that can be honed and polished to a glass-like shine that will resist staining for 10+ years!

- Reduces maintenance costs
- Reduces dust
- Abrasion resistant
- Unlimited Color
- Increases hardness of concrete
- No topical coatings
- Stain resistant
- Meets LEEDS specifications

Staining is just one form of decorative concrete. Concrete stain is a water based stain that will be put onto the concrete and the color pigment will be absorbed into the pours of the concrete to achieved the color wanted for the concrete surface.
