Why would I use polished concrete instead of VCT?

Polished concrete is one of the most durable flooring system when compared with typical flooring finishes. VCT requires continuous stripping, waxing, and buffing to maintain its appearance. It also wears more quickly than polished concrete, and must be reinstalled at the same price as the initial installation. Polished concrete will retain its sheen with minimal maintenance, and should a re-polish ever become necessary, it can be done at a fraction of the original installation price and without shutting down your operations.
