How Much Does Polished Concrete Cost ?

 The cost of polished concrete can start at $60 per square metre, but on average, grind and seal polished concrete will cost around $100 per square metre. Honed concrete may cost $80 per square metre. Mechanically polished floors may cost $120 or more per square metre.

There are two main ways concrete can be polished:

  • The least expensive way to polish concrete is the grind and seal method. 
  • The most expensive way to polish concrete is mechanically polished concrete. 
  • Each option have pro's and con's, as a DIY, the grind and seal is the most achievable option. But both can be done and we will guide you to your bst option.

Some factors that influence the cost of polished concrete include:

  • The condition of the floor: a rough surface or a surface with cracks will require extra work
  • Whether it's a new floor or existing concrete
  • Accessibility
  • Type of polished concrete needed (grind and seal, honed or mechanically polished)
  • The level of polish
  • Timing of polishing at the start of the building or later on. If the floor is polished before walls and frames this can save costs and time.
