Polished Self-Leveling Concrete Floors, California

Polished concrete flooring is no longer just a durable floor choice for industrial settings and car dealerships. A polished concrete floor is now considered a spectacular showpiece in upscale, contemporary homes. Advancements in polishing equipment, techniques and products in recent years, such as polishable self-leveling concrete, allow contractors to grind old or new concrete floor surfaces, resurface them if necessary and give them a high-gloss finish that needs minimal maintenance.

More and more Palm Springs, California, homes are adding self-leveling polished concrete to their floors. Home like this one chose Param 5500 self-leveling concrete by Duraamen, installed by John Burkett of Burkett Construction in Palm Springs, California.


The superior performance of concrete has long been known by contractors and business owners, because polished concrete gives a seamless, easy care surface that can be colored in any style. Homeowners are increasingly recognizing the advantages of concrete in residential settings also. Rather than covering up a hard-working concrete slab with carpet that must be vacuumed and cleaned on a daily basis, or wood, which is prone to scuffing and needs to be waxed, polished concrete simply needs to be sealed once the polish reaches the desired level, and it’s done.

Self-leveling concrete works by leveling out existing concrete so a new surface can be created on top. Most resurfaced areas are open to foot traffic within two to six hours, which makes it a great choice for homeowners who want to minimize inconvenience. However, the whole process may take 4 to 5 days to complete. Self-leveling concrete overlays like Duraamen’s Param 5500 will finish a surface smooth and then get sealed with a clear epoxy of polyurethane.that can be decoratively finished. Sometimes, polishable self-leveling overlays like Param 6000 can be polished with grinders and polishing machines as shown in these videos.

Polished concrete is the perfect choice for Palm Springs, California, homes because concrete matches the easy, beachy yet sophisticated lifestyle of this area. Concrete stain or dyes can match patios or indoor décor to create a seamless look for inside and outside entertaining. Color choices are available from serene, beachy pastels to vivid dark gem tones . . . whatever you desire can be created in concrete.
