Concrete Polish for Office Space in Denver Metro

Chatfield Farms, who we featured in a previous post as we worked on one of their event venues, also needed help with their office. They had an existing concrete floor, but it was older and didn’t have much of a visual pop. They were hoping to get a polished concrete office floor look that would be cost effective and also last for years to come.
