Residential Polished Concrete Floors


Concrete polishing transforms ordinary concrete into a beautiful, glossy, low maintenance surface that will last for years even in high traffic areas. Whether it’s a basement, guest home or residential floor, polished concrete is the most cost-effective, long-term, beautiful flooring available today.

Polished Concrete is Great for Finished Basements…

polished02Homeowners who have full or partial basements that can be transformed into living space are essentially sitting on a goldmine. Realtor surveys show that finishing a basement ranks just behind kitchen and bathroom renovations in maximizing the return on the homeowner’s investment, with the payback sometimes exceeding the remodeling expenditure. What’s more, expanding the living space into the basement is often much more economical than adding another room or floor onto an existing home.

With an average annual rainfall of 40 inches, Portland is known for its leaky basements. No need to worry about water damage to these hard working floors. Just mop or vacuum up the water and you’re done! And don’t worry about difficult access, Alternative Edge has polishing machines specifically designed to get down tight stairwells and into your basement.

Residential Polished Floor Benefits…

  • Cost savings: Traditional floor covering materials are not necessary when the slab on grade is used as the finished floor surface.
  • Long-term savings: Polished floors are not as vulnerable to damage as other materials, are very low maintenance and do not need replacing.
  • Durability: Polished floors are very tough and are not susceptible to water damage.
  • Easy to clean: Won’t harbor dust, dirt or allergens.
  • Design: Available in a wide variety of colors and designs.

Add Some Color to Your Floor…

Using colored dyes and acids to stain concrete floors is a process that transforms an ordinary concrete slab into a luxurious floor that resembles marble or glazed stone at a fraction of the cost. It is permanent unlike paint or coatings. Acid stains have a mottled, variegated look and come in a variety of different shades and colors. If a custom touch is desired, dyes and stencils can be used to create beautiful patterns and designs. Whether you seek a Tuscan, Southwestern, contemporary, architectural, Old World or more traditional style, acid stained concrete makes a stunning flooring choice in any home. As for its aesthetic quality and green building advantages, stained concrete has become a preferred flooring choice in many luxury homes.
