Is My Space too Small to Polish?
The hard and fast answer to this question is, it depends. While it’s unlikely you’re asking if your bedroom closet could have polished concrete, the answer to that one is no, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to the size of the space we can polish. There are several factors involved so we have to examine all facets before we give you an accurate answer.
Every Space is Unique
At Royale Concrete, we never make a bid over the phone without first seeing the space. There is no way to know the ins and outs of the job without seeing exactly what the baseline is. When we arrive at the job site, we take our own measurement to ensure we have accurate and quantitative data to work with.
The size of the space isn’t the only thing we’re considering. We have to take a look at moisture levels, the quality of the slab currently in place, and the environment it’s in. If the project is in a work zone, it can be affected by any accidental spills or breakages. This can change the work needed and it may require slab restoration before polishing is installed. We take our diagnosis process very seriously because we want to ensure each finished project is the best outcome possible. There may be obstacles that arise during the process, but the more we can plan for ahead of time, the better the finished appearance will be.
It may come as no surprise, but we operate high-quality grinders. These grinders are pretty big which means they have to be able to fit in the space to be polished with room to move. For example, we don’t often do residential projects because our machines are just too big. It would be nearly impossible to install polished concrete in a basement unless there was a large enough basement walkout area to bring the grinders through. That’s not to say we can’t do residential projects, we just have to make sure our customers consider the space and the best option for installation purposes as well. Our philosophy is to do the right thing for our customers, even if that means helping them choose a better solution to their flooring needs if we can’t accommodate them with polished concrete.
