Polished concrete creates a higher light reflection, assisting the consumer in saving money by reducing the amount of artificial/additional light sources installed. Concrete floors are “Temperature Wise”! Because, temperature wise, concrete flooring provides multifaceted functions during each season of the year. For instance, during the Summer months, concrete flooring provides a dense form of pours that hold cool air and radiate a cooler temperature. Also, in the Winter months, concrete floors absorb the heat from the sun, providing warmth to the applied rooms. These examples potentially decreases energy bills, requiring less output from cooling and/or heating sources. We recommend our clients obtain a HER (Home Energy Rating) after your concrete floors have been polished; this can dramatically save the consumer money and create savings and rebate opportunities from your local energy company.
