As part of a project to convert an unused basement into a secondary suite, we poured a new concrete floor with the intention of grinding and polishing it. This is a great idea for high quality, durable and affordable flooring. Nowadays there are a zillion options for finishing concrete – it can be stained just about any colour, finished in any sheen, texturized, accented with stone or tile, mixed with decorative aggregates, and so on. For this particular project, our client was keen to include recycled coloured glass. This was carefully included during the pour to ensure that the glass was close enough to the surface to be successfully revealed in the grinding, polishing and staining steps. We will post photos of the finish floor once the lighting is installed to show you the final look.

The recycled glass is visible after polishing. Awesome!
