Each of our staff members undergoes specialized training before joining our team, so you can feel confident that we employ some of the best polished concrete floor contractors in Arizona. We offer a wide range of concrete floor-polishing services, including the following.
Concrete Floor Polishing
A traditional concrete slab can’t withstand harsh chemicals, pressure, and movements, all of which lead concrete floors to crack and wear down over time. However, treating concrete through our multi-step grinding, smoothing, and polishing process will add strength and beauty to your floor’s surface.
Our polished concrete services utilize the best tools and methods in the industry to ensure a high-quality finished product. We use a heavy-duty concrete-polishing machine that smooths and polishes your concrete floor with 1600-grit diamond polishing pads. This powerful machine grinds your flooring to create a flat, reflective floor surface.
Once we finish your installation, your floors will look high-end and brand new.
One way to further elevate polished concrete is to apply a color or stain. We offer high-quality concrete staining in a variety of colors so that you can match your flooring to your Phoenix property’s palette.
Our concrete dyes are durable and non-reactive, allowing them to penetrate any concrete surface easily. Whether you live in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Mesa, Gilbert, or elsewhere in our service area, you can count on us for superior coloring. We offer stains in several color options, including:
Along with single-color dying, our company can create grids, borders, bands, and radial lines on your polished flooring to suit your needs.
Concrete Grinding & Smoothing
If you are looking for the best concrete floor-grinding contractors in Phoenix, AZ, you’ve come to the right place.
Industrial floors often take a beating from harsh forklift traffic movement, leaving them rough, uneven, and potentially dangerous to walk on. Our concrete grinding and smoothing services correct any cracks, dents, or uneven surfaces across your concrete floor, leaving it smooth and crack-free.
If your concrete floor is not level in some spots, the original flooring contractor may have done a poor job of smoothing out the surface.
Concrete leveling is one of the first steps in every concrete-polishing project. Our team has the experience and expertise to correct any non-level areas of your concrete floor before they become worse.
Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors
Polished concrete floors offer a range of benefits for all types of spaces. They will:
- Brighten your space: Polished concrete is more reflective than unfinished concrete, allowing it to reflect overhead lights more efficiently. Adding polished concrete floors to your Phoenix home can reduce the need for additional lighting and make your room feel brighter.
- Reduce maintenance: Polished concrete floors require less maintenance than unfinished concrete. You can easily maintain these flooring options yourself with clean water or a pH cleaner rather than hiring a cleaning company.
- Provide affordable flooring solutions: Polished concrete is more affordable than epoxy coatings or other concrete additions. If you already have a concrete floor, adding concrete grind & polish is an excellent low-cost option to restore your existing floors.
- Add longevity: Concrete polishing prolongs the life of traditional concrete. While concrete begins to break and chip after several years of use, polished concrete has a lifespan of over 100 years. In Arizona homes and businesses, a polished concrete floor will stay clean and resist the expansion that often results from changing temperatures.
- Eliminate efflorescence and dusting: Unfinished concrete pushes dust to your floor’s surface over time. This process leads to efflorescence—the powdery deposits that often coat concrete. Concrete polishing eliminates efflorescence by trapping sediments within the floor, creating a cleaner, smoother look.
- Resist stains: Our concrete-polishing system adds a stain-resistant coating to your Phoenix garage floor, allowing it to repel water, oil, and contaminants. Concrete polishing reduces the need to clean your floor as often, saving you time and money.
- Improve traction: Although polished concrete looks shiny on the surface, this flooring is not slippery. Concrete polishing improves the floor’s surface traction, making it safer for your work staff or visitors.
- Provide a sustainable design: Polished concrete is a leader in “green” flooring, as it utilizes existing flooring rather than requiring a new installation. Choosing polished concrete means that you can feel confident about making a sustainable, environmentally friendly choice for your Arizona residential property or business.
- Decrease allergens: Our concrete polishing system reduces dust mites and eliminates mold growth, creating an allergen-free flooring option.

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings dry more quickly than Epoxy Floor Coatings, and the finish is also more durable. Our floor concrete coating finishes are also more slip-resistant and will not discolor like some Epoxy Floor Coatings.
How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?
Our flooring cures within a few hours, however our team of professionals recommends waiting at least 4-6 hours before walking on your brand new concrete coated flooring. After 12 hours, you can begin moving lightweight objects onto the flooring, like light patio furniture. We recommend waiting a full 24 hours before moving anything heavy back into the area where we’ve applied the coating (your car, heavy equipment or furniture etc.).
Will My New Concrete Floor Coating Turn Yellow?
It sure won’t! Our concrete floor coverings will not yellow or discolor, because they are UV stable. This one of the many benefits of using Polyurea or Polyaspartic floor coatings.
Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?
If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.
How Long Does It Take You To Apply Concrete Floor Coatings?
We’ve perfected our 6-step application process, so most typical projects take between 5-10 hours depending on the square footage. We pride ourselves in a one-day application, and will do everything possible to stay within that time frame. Rainy weather can delay the project, but it is rare.
How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?
You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping, mopping or steaming, and hoses. We offer maintenance services should your concrete flooring ever need cleaning, however you can also use non-abrasive cleaners, like CLR, to remove grease or other stains.
Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?
Cardinal Concrete’s coatings are oil resistant as well as moisture resistant.

It was later used to coat concrete flooring due to its durability and moisture resistance. Polyurea is also used to coat truck bed liners.
Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Used Outside?
They sure can! We offer wonderful solutions for driveways, patios, and even the area around the pool. Our coatings are all UV stable, which will help prevent discoloration or flaking.
What Types Of Environments Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Used?

Can I Apply Polyaspartic Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?
You can! Polyaspartic floor coatings are safe to apply in temperatures as cold as -40 degrees.
How Long Do Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Take To Dry?
Our Polyaspartic Floor Coatings are engineered to rapidly cure, and can be dry in a matter of a few hours! However, we recommend waiting at least 5-6 hours before walking on newly applied coating and 24 hours before moving heavy objects back onto the flooring.
