These finishes are provided by Vermont Eco-Floors as a general
guideline for selecting a Polished Concrete Floor. In addition
to different budget and aesthetic considerations, projects
have different concrete providers with varying aggregate
blends, sand colors, water ratios, slump requirements and
finishing trowel requirements. We are familiar with Vermont
concrete suppliers and the decorative attributes of their
cements, and it is through the correct selection of a wide
range of aggregate blends, diamond tooling, equipment and
finishing products that we achieve the desired architectural
and design results. Please feel free to discuss any of this

Our Floor Finishes
Eco-Floors Trowel Finish™
The Trowel Finish is often described
as having motion. It is a very popular finish for residential
floors with a unique mottled, leather-like look. Our seven
step grinding and polishing process applied to the trowel
finish placed by the concrete contractor, produces a unique
one of a kind floor every time. A topical impregnating
dye can be applied. Finish levels are usually 1000 (medium
gloss), or 1500 (high gloss). Premium Lithium Densifiers
and water or solvent based sealers are used.
Vermont Eco-Floors Sands Finish™
through the trowel surface of the concrete exposes salt & pepper
sized sand and the concrete becomes harder and denser.
A higher shine is common because of the greater density
of the concrete and aggregate; a stone will hold a great
shine. Our ten-step process creates a durable floor for
commercial environments, and is also used residentially.
Surface imperfections are removed and a level and monolithic
floor is produced. Impregnating topical dye can be applied.
Finish levels of 800 (matte), to 1500 (high gloss), can
be achieved. Premium Lithium Densifiers and water or solvent
based sealers are used.
Vermont Eco-Floors Exposed Aggregate Finish™
floors use stone as the main decorative element. Vermont’s
glacial till and natural stone in many sizes and colors provide
an endless array of decorative options for a residence, a
commercial floor, or an entrance lobby. These floors are
often used when an existing floor is in rough condition.
Our fourteen-step process exposes the stone placed in the
concrete. These floors are very flat, durable, and hold a
great shine. Finish levels of 800 (matte), to 1500 (high
gloss), can be achieved. They make great garage floors that
are unaffected by studded winter tires or truck chains. Heavy
equipment may cause these floors to dull over time, but they
do not peel or scratch like epoxy coatings. Impregnating
topical dye can be added, and Premium Lithium Densifiers
and water or solvent-based sealers are used.
