Can you use polished concrete outside?

Yes and no. There is a form of polished concrete that you can use outside, although strictly speaking, it’s not actually polished concrete. Our outdoor finish looks almost identical to polished concrete and it’s also non-slip even when wet, which is extremely important for an outdoor space. For outdoor floors, we offer our ‘Honed’ non-slip finish, which lasts the longest of all and is UV-stable. This durable outdoor floor uses penetrative sealer, so it’s also the lowest maintenance choice of outdoor options. We do also have an outside grind and seal, which uses topical sealer, and in the topcoat of sealer we include a non-slip grit. However, please note that we always prefer and recommend Honed concrete for outdoor spaces, because it feels much better underneath bare feet, lasts longer, and children won’t ‘grate’ their skin on it if they fall. If you have pets, your pets will also love the Honed finish, whereas the non-slip grit grind and seal can feel too rough. There’s really only one reason to choose the grind and seal outside as opposed to the Honed finish, and that is if you want a high gloss, because Honed finishes are matte only. Aside from desiring a gloss finish, we strongly recommend a Honed finish for its longevity, convenience and comfort.
