Does underfloor heating work well with polished concrete?

Yes polished concrete works really well as the floor acts as a large storage heater.

Will it stain or scratch?

If left unsealed, concrete is a porous material meaning it can stain easily, Balcrete use the finest sealer when it comes to your polished concrete to prevent this occurring for normal wear and tear. We will advise clients of the best maintenance and cleaning regime for their flooring.

 

aggregate finishes

The furniture comes in a variety of finishes, which can be customised to your design.

Our expert team will help you with the best choice of aggregate and finish. Balcrete can create custom samples, on request, to enable the client to visualize the finished look before ordering with us.
