Cost of Polished Concrete Floor Projects

While there are many factors that go into the cost of a flooring project, we’ve broken down what you can expect from some of our most common polished concrete projects. You can also see how polished concrete compares to other popular flooring options here.

Polished Concrete Worktops & Benchtops Cost

Commercial spaces cost less at $2 to $8 per square foot since a larger crew and machinery can be onsite for quicker job completion, and there are fewer edges to be done in large open spaces.

Polished Concrete Basement Floor Cost

Polished concrete basement floors cost $3 to $12 per square foot or between $2,000 and $8,000 on average. By polishing the basement floor, the substrate, although dense, remains breathable, and the reduced moisture vapor eliminates mold and mildew growth. Polishing concrete also adds brightness to a basement if highly honed.

Polished Concrete Patio & Driveway Cost

Polishing a concrete patio or driveway costs $3 to $8 per square foot on average, depending on the size, complexity, number of colors, and sheen. Outdoor polished concrete requires ongoing maintenance to retain its look and lengthen its lifespan.

Flooring Cost Comparisons

If you’re still trying to decide if polished concrete is the right choice for your flooring, we can help you decide by comparing other popular flooring choices to polished concrete.

Polished Concrete vs. Tiles

The cost of polished concrete floors is $3 to $12 per square foot vs. tile flooring costs $7 to $24 per square foot. Polished concrete floors can be stamped to look like most tiles and are water-resistant. Natural stone, like slate, offers more skid resistance than polished concrete.

  • Can be stamped to look like most tiles
  • Does not have moisture absorption
  •  

Tiles

$ 7-24 Per Square Foot
  • Some natural stone, like slate, offers more skid resistance than polished concrete
  • Porcelain tile absorbs water at a slower rate which is great for bathrooms

Polished Concrete vs. Hardwood

Polished Concrete Floors vs. Carpet

Polished concrete floors cost $3-$12 per square foot vs carpet installation costs at $2-$5 per square foot. Polished concrete is more water-resistant, has lower maintenance, is significantly more durable, and has more design options. Carpet is affordable, comfortable, and warm.
