Differences Between Polished Concrete and Resin Flooring

Choosing a type of flooring for your home can be difficult, especially when so many options are available. Polished concrete flooring has been growing in popularity because it is easy to maintain and looks great over time. However, the other option that people often overlook is resin or concrete. In this blog post, we will discuss the pros and cons of these two types of floors to help you decide which one best suits your needs!


Concrete Polishing

Polished concrete is aesthetically pleasing and provides a durable, anti-slip surface customized to look like stone or wood flooring. It also has the advantage of matching any existing decor in your home due to its wide range of colors and designs. Polished concrete floors are more costly but only because it is built to last!


Concrete polishing can make any space appear more open and welcoming. Businesses, warehouses, and offices have recognized the numerous advantages of polished concrete, which has resulted in polished concrete becoming more popular than ever!


Resin Flooring

Resin flooring is ideal for those who want a low-maintenance product that can withstand heavy foot traffic and spills. Resin flooring is low maintenance, as spills wipe away easily with a damp mop or cloth. It can also be swept for those who prefer not to use mopping equipment. Any other cleaning will require standard cleaners like soap and water or vinegar and water solutions. Resin floors are water-resistant, easy to clean, will not scratch or scuff from kids playing on the floor, and they come in different colors as well as designs!


Food processing, electronics, pharmaceutical, meat and poultry, distilleries, dairy, industrial, and manufacturing facilities are just a few industries that benefit from epoxy flooring.

Budgeting for Polished Concrete

Many factors influence polished concrete pricing, including:

  • Size – A small area will cost more than a larger area for two reasons: smaller areas require more detail work than larger areas and require more setup time.
  • Floor condition – a rough surface or a surface with cracks will require additional work to repair before being polished.
  • Polishing exposed aggregate (pebblecrete) or colored, stamped, or stenciled concrete can be more expensive.
  • Prices vary depending on the type of polishing used – grind and seal, honing, and mechanical polishing.
  • How much polishing is required – glossy polished concrete floors are more expensive than matte finishes.
  • Access – the ease with which workers and equipment can gain access to the floor.
