You can always use a polyaspartic resin to create a "mirror" layer, of 1,5 - 2 kg/sqm. Absolutely UV resistant, will not yellow in time and better characteristics than epoxy. It is much costly, but the effect and performance is absolutely worth the money. No smell. Fast in application. Long lasting... :-)

Are these floors installed above or below grade? - If they are above grade, was additional support required?

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.

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.

Love the aesthetics of this look. High ceilings, light wall colour, wall washer lighting in the hall combine with the light coming through the entry glass - and then the final touch - the depth of floor shine which further reflects the light airiness further adds to a wonderful feeling of voluminousness. Just wonderful.
