Polished Concrete Veneer
In Brisbane and Gold Coast
Nothing looks worse than a worn out carpet or timber, especially if you’re renovating. Let’s say you would like to replace your dirty carpet with gorgeous white or coloured polished concrete. Fantastic choice! The only problem is the installation process as you were limited to only polishing the existing concrete. Until now, we are able to install a custom coloured polished concrete veneer at a thickness of 15mm over your existing concrete.
Install Polished Concrete Veneer
Or let’s say if you were building a new project and wanted a coloured polished concrete in certain rooms or areas and not throughout the whole floor space. Why pay your concreter to supply and install a specialist polished concrete mix throughout your whole project when you will only see parts of it once your projects complete? It seems a waste of money. Until now, we can install a polished concrete veneer in localized rooms or areas of your project over a standard concrete floor, minimising your overall flooring costs on your project.
You deserve complete perfection when it comes to choosing your polished concrete floor. Typically to achieve a polished concrete floor on a new project, you would need to engage a concrete supplier to supply the specialist concrete, that concrete would then be transported to your project and installed by a concreter of your choice, then a local polished concrete company would grind and polish the freshly installed concrete. The installation process of the concrete can be altered by the concrete plant (getting the mix design 100% correct for every batch), the concrete truck delivery times (traffic can change the arrival time and flow of delivery, which can alter the flow of concrete, resulting in a difficult to install surface), Hot or cold days can affect the installation process of concrete. Finally, we have Human error, not all concrete installation companies have a perfect day every day. If this process does not go 100% perfect, then this will alter how your end result will turn out once the grinding and polishing has been carried out. Well this is where Polished Concrete Veneer (PCV) by My Floor will eliminate 99% of the risk we have mentioned above when installing a polished concrete floor. If you install a standard concrete floor, My Floor supply, mix, install and polish the concrete veneer all onsite, using our very own employed staff. We guarantee consistency with aggregate exposure, colour and the durability of the surface, as we have complete control of the entire process. Resulting in complete perfection!
If you want polished concrete, then these were your options;
Until now, you only had three options available. You could:
- Remove your current flooring and grind your existing concrete
- Install a 50 mm to 80 mm concrete screed over your existing surface
- Pour an engineered slab that has a controlled colour and aggregate mix
Each one of these options has its limitations. For one, they’re all very costly and time-consuming options. All you’re trying to do is renovate your Brisbane residence, not rebuild your entire house! Here are the main drawbacks of each option:
Limitations of polishing the existing concrete
- If the concrete slab didn’t get poured with the intention of aggregate exposure, it may not turn our how you intend
- There’s no guarantee of what the concrete will look like until the grinding has been carried out
- You may see boot prints, water damage, screed marks and stains in existing concrete
- The aggregate exposure may be inconsistent
- Significant and irreparable cracking can occur
- Colour uncertainty
The limitations of concrete toppings or screeds
- The screed will add additional weight that may cause engineering issues
- Existing door and window heights can cause problems
- 90% of the time, the process requires wheelbarrows, concrete trucks, and a lot of traffic
- Screeds can result in substandard finishes with inconsistent aggregate exposure
- They’re also very thick and difficult to install to existing properties
Limitations with newly engineered concrete slabs
- They’re far more costly than a standard slab
- You’re limited to the colour and aggregate choices held by the concrete supplier
- The entire concrete slab has to adhere to engineered standards no matter how much is getting exposed
- You risk getting the wrong blend, and there’s no recourse for error
- If not placed correctly, you could see patchiness or screed marks
As you can see, there are limitations for choosing your polished concrete floor. If only there were a way that you could achieve polished concrete floors without all the hassle! Well, now there is with our excellent polished concrete veneers!
A polished concrete veneer is a thin concrete overlay that’s only 10 mm to 15 mm thick. Much like how a dental veneer covers up old or missing teeth, a concrete veneer does the same to floors. It’s very similar to a tile in terms of its total thickness. Since it’s thin and easy to install, you can use it to adjoin other floor coverings with no difference in height! You can quickly join your tiles, timber, and carpet with beautiful polished concrete!
There are a ton of unique benefits to installing polished concrete veneers! You can install them straight on top of any structural timber, concrete, and other sound substrates. The concrete is also specially designed to stay consistent in colour and aggregate. That way, you’re guaranteed a smooth, colourful surface with even exposure. At My Floor, we’ve got the process down to an exact science. We’re able to provide you with a flawless finish every single time. If you’re renovating your home in Brisbane, Gold Coast, or Sunshine Coast, you need to get in touch with us! Polished concrete veneers also work amazingly well in commercial and industrial settings.

Consulting with us first at My Floor is a must for the first step. That way, we can perform the necessary checks to determine your best options. Here’s a typical breakdown of how the process goes:
- First, we prepare the original surface, screed, or any subfloor. We’ll make sure that it’s seamless and ready for the installation of the polished concrete veneer.
- Next, we prime the surface. Depending on the condition of your floor, it may take more preparation. This process includes applying bonding agents.
- If all goes well, we will install the polished concrete veneer the very next day after priming. From there, the curing process takes roughly 48 to 72 hours before its ready to grind.
- After curing, we will diamond grind the entire surface to expose the aggregate and polish the PCV. The amount of time this takes depends on the total size of the area. These abrasives will achieve the desired level of gloss and shine!
It’s as easy as that! Before you know it, you’ll have gorgeous polished concrete in your home or business. You’ll have full control over its colour and aggregate exposure as well. If you’re after a shiny concrete veneer in Brisbane or Gold Coast, you need to call us at My Floor!
