This floor looks like coated with epoxy to give this shine look. The surface of epoxy will scratch after a period of time. The best alternative for this similar look is polished concrete. A polished concrete is more labor intensive, but in the long run it will last a lot longer. The shine of a polished concrete is from the chemical reaction of the concrete with densifier to create a harness of concrete that is able to be polished with different grids of pads. The result of a polished concrete is a "breathable" surface, meaning no coatings. It is a lot more resemblance of a marble natural look.

Do you apply the densifier to the concrete (we just poured in-place concrete countertops) before polishing or after? What do you recommend putting on after polishing?

Is it possible to install concrete (thinner layer maybe?) above grade. We would like to use concrete as a 'heat sink' on main floor above a walk-out basement. If it's not advisable would there be a substitute you could recommend that is not extremely expensive. We love the look but are trying to be economical and enironmentally 'aware'.

It is. Look up "Lightweight Concrete". Another option would be tile or stone flooring.

The seams are located strategically for the aesthetic, but they are also necessary for crack control. We try to make these utilitarian necessities and incorporate them in a way that supports the aesthetic of the Architecture.

I have 5/8 inch hand tooled joints in my concrete topping slab that my concrete polisher warns are likely to spawl if he runs the big polishing maching over them. He recommends that we pay extra to hand polish along the edges of the joints. The only downside is that he warns there will be a "halo" along the joint edges. He has no pictures of what the halo might look like. I was wondering if these joints were maybe hand polished as it looks like there is a small color difference along the joint edges in a couple of these pictures. I'm trying to visualize what the edges will look like before committing to the floor polisher.

love this floor. could you please till me what the exact type of concrete you used. was it just normal concrete with no additives or no grinding and then a high gloss polish over top. if not would you please be so kind and shear the recipe or the exact name of the concrete before the high gloss polish. thanks we are form New Zealand and are currently building a house, we would love our floors to turn out the same as these.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Other decorative effects, like scoring in grid pattern lines, cost around $5 to $8 per square foot. These are still very impressive. With a high-gloss seal, the floor can be transformed to look like limestone. An acrylic sealer could be used in the interior application to give it that wet look.

The most expensive method of polishing will achieve the most hardwearing and long-lasting result and can produce a look of such high polish that it can almost resemble marble. Once a floor is polished to this degree it will no longer require any further coatings.
