A veteran-owned family business, Stewart’s Concrete Polishing, is now open, offering an eco-friendly and sustainable treatment that can transform existing concrete floors into a marble-like surface. Stewart’s Concrete Polishing will serve businesses and homeowners in the tri-state area, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
Owner Bill Stewart, an Army veteran, brings 30 years of experience in industrial services to the business. His wife, Donna Stewart, is the office manager. The Stewarts chose to focus on concrete polishing because of its environmental benefits and advantages over other types of flooring and finishes.
“Polished concrete minimizes mold and allergens naturally because of its tighter surface and breathable seal,” noted Bill Stewart. “It is extremely durable, outlasting wood, tile, and paint, and it doesn’t dent, chip or scratch. It has an OSHA-approved skid-resistant surface which is great for high traffic areas. It also has a green rating which helps toward an environmental LEED certification. It can reflect light up to 23 percent. In addition, the polishing process includes no harsh chemicals and will not harm the environment or employees.”
Concrete polishing is used for driveways, patios, basements, bars, party rooms, garages, warehouses, offices, and retail spaces. “It is a technique that is quickly gaining popularity for its high-end, cost-effective finish that is both trendsetting and timeless,” noted Jason Lehew, field superintendent for Stewart’s. “With concrete polishing, you’re also going to have a unique product. Not every concrete is poured the same. Like restoring old furniture, the polished version will have its own personality. Some stones come up like marble, providing a truly unique floor. Because it’s concrete, it never delaminates.”
Stewart’s Concrete Polishing will offer a variety of services. In addition to grinding and polishing concrete, the business will remove glue and epoxy, repair divots and cracks, and offer stains and logos. The Stewarts note that they pride themselves on customer service and their quick response time.
Stewarts was selected to complete the polished concrete floor of the garage in the Philadelphia Magazine 2019 Design Home, a trendsetting display of the latest home styles. Proceeds from tours of the home are donated to a local charity. Follow along at www.phillymag.com/designhome. This year’s home is in Villanova, Pa., and will be open to the public October 12 through November 3.
