|Desert Coatings does all types of polished concrete floors including: exposed aggregate grind and polish, concrete coloring and polished concrete, concrete floor grind and seals, polishing of gray concrete floors and integral colored concrete floors, grinding of unlevel concrete floors and grinding of battered concrete floors for forklift traffic movement. Although this is a highly industrial concrete floor system, it has become extremely popular to polish concrete in homes and has become a viable option for your garage floor. We have over 10 polishing machines as well as other types of concrete floor cleaning equipment. Each concrete polishing machine has the capability of completing 2500 to 3000 square feet of concrete polishing per step per hour.|
To give you a breakdown of our capacity: On 10,000 square feet of level concrete floor that requires no concrete grinding, we could complete 5 passes (3000 grit) of polished concrete with 1 machine in approximately 20 hours. We give a 2 year warranty on your polished concrete floor.

Acid stain is a combination of hydrochloric acid, surfactants, water and metalic ions. The solution causes a chemical reaction with the Portland cement in the concrete when it is correctly applied. The colors that are achieved are permanent and depend upon the chemical makeup of the concrete floor where the acid stain product is being applied. The colors and tones of the concrete floor vary from concrete floor to concrete floor. The uniqueness of the product is what makes acid stained flooring a highly desired concrete flooring option. No two acid stain concrete floors are exactly alike.
Unlike Acid Stain, dyes are not a chemical reaction with the concrete floor but rather a chemical dying of the concrete floor. Due to the fact that concrete dyes are not a chemical reaction, Desert Coatings only recommends using concrete floor dyes over a polished concrete surface, overlay floor or as an accent color to an acid stain concrete floor. In addition, concrete dyes should not be used on exterior concrete floors as the UV can bleach the color from the colored concrete surface.
