Polished Concrete, the Rock Up Way
We are dedicated to bringing you the highest quality craftsmanship through our commitment to detailed refinement.
With a background in large-scale projects, we have brought this knowledge to the high-end residential, renovation, and boutique commercial market, prioritising our in-depth consultation process as part of our project management style.
Whether we are installing MPC at a shopping centre, within an architecturally-designed home, or as part of a renovation project, the way we communicate puts the client first each and every time.
Mechanically Polished Concrete - MPC
MPC is the most sought-after concrete finish on the market, with the polishing process creating a superior floor surface that lasts.
We operate independently and don’t receive any incentives for the specialised equipment we use and recommend - we’ve chosen it simply because it enables us to achieve the high-quality consistency we promise to deliver.
MPC floors are grouted and densified to fill pinholes, creating a strong and durable surface that doesn’t allow for dirt to work its way into tiny cracks. For this reason, it is ideal for high traffic areas while also being a hygienic and hypoallergenic flooring surface.
When installing MPC, there are a range of different concrete exposure levels and gloss grades to choose from, depending on what style you are seeking.
High-End Grind and Seal (HGS)
HGS includes the grinding, grouting, and where appropriate, the densifying and polishing stages of the MPC process, however it uses a topical sealer that complies with slip regulations for wet or outdoor areas.
Rock Up Group doesn’t compromise on quality; it’s why we suggest HGS over a traditional Grind and Seal to achieve a polished concrete look.
To ensure concrete stability and a long-lasting finish, we suggest using a High End Grind and Seal methodology where MPC is not suitable for use, such as in small wet areas or large outdoors areas.
Pavillion Finish / Acid Etch
A Rock Up Group Pavillion finish is ground to fully expose the aggregate, then the surface is acid etched. This helps to create its non-slip nature before we seal the surface with a topical sealer.
Pavillion finishes offer a textured look that feels good to walk on and looks great, making it ideal for outdoor spaces where shoes are optional!
