Improving the Performance of Finished Concrete Flooring



This overview of concrete floor basics shows participants how to get the most from finished concrete floors. Along the way, it discusses levels of finish, hardening-densifying, and other aspects of finished concrete flooring not commonly known. The program also shows how to protect and maintain finished concrete flooring. It includes tips for protecting finished floors from damage during building construction.

Learning Objectives

  1. List two ways finished concrete floors “perform” that contribute to sustainability.
  2. Compare the waste-generation characteristics of lithium-silicate hardener/densifiers to older potassium- and sodium-silicate hardener/densifiers.
  3. Explain how regular maintenance contributes to the sustainability of polished concrete floors.
  4. Estimate the expected service life of a finished concrete floor and rate it for sustainability on a scale of “good-fair-poor.”
