Testimonials

Although we had several quotes from local polishers, we decided to look again and thankfully we found Geocrete. It was evident from the information and examples shown on the website that Paul Warner was passionate about his craft. When we met Paul on site, he was able to clearly articulate the detail, quality and approach which sets his workmanship apart from the rest. Paul worked with us as a partner on our floor from pre-pour to final mirror finish and he provided valuable insights and advice along the way. Paul worked hard and went above and beyond to deliver on his promises. I would never hesitate to recommend Geocrete to anyone looking for the best possible finished floor and best overall value. We love our Geocrete floor.

David Morgan, Warranwood

Paul is AMAZING! I was looking for a company that could provide a full service from laying concrete to the final honed product. Most companies either laid the concrete or polished it – not both. Whilst Paul’s expertise is polishing, his experience allowed him to provide a list of quality suppliers that we could chose from. The final outcome was a honed alfresco area that met and exceeded expectations. I cannot recommend Paul highly enough if you want attention to detail. His level of communication, talent and love for the job are unsurpassed. Acknowledging that this was a large investment, Paul went over and above to ensure we were happy with the final product and treated the concrete like a piece of artwork. He is a master at what he does.

Thank you Paul!

Kerry Walker

Paul from Geocrete has produced a work of art! His attention to detail and workmanship make him a true expert in the field of high end polished concrete. I wouldn’t call Paul a trades person but an artist who shows passion and takes pride in his work. Paul did not leave one stone unturned! And for that we thank him and invite him with open arms for all our future polishing concrete needs.

Rade Maric, Williamstown Developments

Paul has just completed our 4 units in Preston and all I can say is WOW. I have never come across a tradesman that has such in-depth knowledge in his trade. Communication was excellent and the amount of times he went out of his way to give us the best possible finish was amazing. Being a builder I’m sure we will do polished concrete again and Paul from Geocrete will be doing the job for sure. Thanks so much Paul for your excellent work and guidance throughout your time on site can’t wait to deal with you again.

Daniel Abela, Abela Constructions, Preston

Paul was recommended to us by another concrete polisher. Wow what an amazing end result, it’s refreshing to see a craftsman so passionate about his trade. Paul is a perfectionist focusing on customer satisfaction whilst guiding you through the process. Very happy customers!

Jack and Vanessa Cherry, Berwick owner builder

I highly recommend Geocrete concrete polishers. Paul has just completed a high gloss polish on our random exposed concrete floor at a project in North Warrandyte. As Builders of high end homes we have used 3 different floor polishers in the last 5 years, however Geocrete has by far produced the best finished floor on our projects to date. Pauls extensive knowledge on polished concrete and the processes involved allows him to produce harder shiner floors than most other concrete polishers.

Adam Nye – Highrise Interiors, Warrandyte

When it came to choosing someone to polish our floors at Nissl Eichert Hydronic Heating’s new showroom, Geocrete Concrete Polishers was the obvious choice. We could not have been happier with the end results of our floors and could not give a better recommendation for his services.

Jake Williams – Nissl Eichert Hydronic Heating, Camberwell

Paul is a true professional with an outstanding knowledge of polished concrete. He takes immense pride in his work, and his advice and communication with us throughout the whole job was excellent. Paul went out of his way to discuss options and make sure that the end result was perfect. We love our polished concrete floor and thank Paul for his passion and attention to detail. We would highly recommend him to others.

Tony Sheahan

Paul Warner goes above and beyond customer expectation! Paul was happy to spend time explaining the process to us, and repeating it all again to the builder. Paul always gives his professional opinion, and is honest about other options and why he wouldn’t recommend. When we had to select concreter, without hesitation we turned to Paul for recommendation and engaged Jeremy, and they worked together as a team to deliver brilliant result, both inside and outside the house. Paul understood our time pressures and worked overtime and weekends to overdeliver on his promise, to help us minimise delays. His customer service is outstanding! His workmanship is one of a kind! Passion for his job and care for his tools are admirable! Thank you for a beautiful home that we love, and the attention that floor gets from all our visitors, and tradies alike 😊

David Hillman

Paul from Geocrete Concrete Polishers has recently completed 2 separate projects for our building company ARC Design and Build. One was a full exposure, high gloss finish and the other a burnished satin finish. Both jobs presented their own challenges which included stains, cracks, and various blemishes etc. The way Paul handled each “issue” was extremely professional, very thoroughly communicated and overall very passionately dealt with! We couldn’t have been happier with the finished results on both floors. We would not hesitate using Paul again on our future projects or recommending him to others. Great job Paul!

Tim and Emma Rickard – Arc Design & Build, Ballarat

Paul did our polished concrete floor at our own house. His enthusiasm for polished concrete is next level and his work ethic is unmatched. We joked that he’s the Steve Irwin of polished concrete… He loves his job and wants the client to know at every stage their options and it’s never too much trouble for him to help you make the right decision for your own house. Would highly recommend him for any one who wants the highest quality workmanship around. Thanks Paul!

Toni Raynes

Paul has completed 3 projects for us now, each time he has been the most professional tradesman to work with. From the first time you engage him for the job to hand over of his work, everything is about doing the work properly & keeping the Client happy. We at Dowling Builders are very happy to recommend Geocrete to create a perfect floor in your home.

Ben Dowling, Dowling Builders

Martin O’Malley

Paul is so committed to helping you get the perfect solution for your floors. He saved us from making rookie errors and now have the most amazing floor. He is super passionate and completely professional. Our home will now look like something out of a magazine thanks to his knowledge and patience. He is not happy until you are happy. He is courteous and listens to your needs. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks, Paul we could not be more grateful.

Kim Aidone

Very happy to recommend the services of Paul and Geocrete Concrete Polishers. Paul is a highly skilled professional with a wealth of knowledge and passion for polished concrete. It is rare to encounter such a high performance standard which encompasses not only detailed expertise – the result was excellent, but also Paul’s integrity. This was demonstrated by his willingness to take the time to explain what can and cannot be achieved in the finished product which btw ended up exceeding my wildest expectations. He advice about how to care for the polished concrete was also extremely helpful.

Kathryn MacDonald, the Croft House, Inverloch, Grand Designs Winner

Thank you so much Paul from Geocrete for such an amazing job on our floors! Your attention to detail and work ethic is something to be admired. You have taken such pride in your finished product and went above and beyond to deliver the best quality polished concrete floors.

We cannot thank you enough for your outstanding service and hope to work with you again in the near future. Highly recommended, thanks Paul!

Frances, Noi Developments Pty Ltd

My wife and I had Paul polish the floors in our new house about 18 months ago and could not be happier with his work and the finish he was able to achieve. As we live in quite a small part of Vic and our house was definitely not the “norm” for this area it received quite a lot of interest and the first comment people had was “wow I love your floor”. Paul has definitely sparked some interest for people in this area to get that perfect look achieved by an excellent tradesman. Paul’s attention to detail has to be commended and as a trades person myself can appreciate the pride he takes in his work and after inspecting other polished floors we are reassured that our floor is second to none for quality.

Thanks,

Brendon and Nicky

We cannot thank Paul and Geocrete enough for our beautiful floor.

We originally built our house about eight years ago and have always wanted polished concrete floors. Someone recommended Paul Warner to us and we were so glad they did. Our floor was by far our favourite thing in the house and every visitor we had raved about how good it looked.

Tragically, almost a year ago, we lost our house and all our possessions in a house fire. It was devastating. All that was left was our original slab. Once we were able to assess our situation and begin the re-build, we weren’t sure we would ever get back our beloved polished floor.

We contacted Paul and he didn’t hesitate to come. He was so helpful and caring and not only did he bring our polished floor back to life but it is even better than ever. With his expertise and professionalism our floor is now once again our favourite part of our house.

We are just so grateful to him.

Thank you

Stuart and Deanna, Cape Paterson

In all aspects of his work and person, I cannot speak highly enough of Paul.

While our floors may speak for themselves and are a constant source of comment and awe from visitors, outside of that, Paul is a really great guy! Having so many people through your house when you’re building can be somewhat gruelling, but Paul was always a pleasure to have on-site and we felt as though he treated our project as if it were his own. He arrived with coffee and tasty treats for us more than once and was also so great (and responsible) with our three dogs which was just the icing on the cake really.

Having previously been a concreter, I believe his knowledge and understanding of what it takes to achieve the best results is far more thorough than any other polishers we met with prior to engaging Paul and comes from many years of practical experience, which is how and why he achieves the results he does. He is a genuine wealth of knowledge and guided us through the process, literally, from start to finish; assisting us in finding a quality concreter to pour our slab, instructing us on how to care for the slab once poured (and why) and stepped us through each part of the polishing in detail as well as aftercare.

The results at my own home have instilled absolute trust in Paul’s work for me and being a building designer, I will now only recommend Geocrete to my clients when nominating polished concrete.

We love your work Paul and will always hold fondly those memories of you sliding across the floor in your socks to test the gloss of the polish! Until the next project… stay you!

Bianca Lagalla, Building Designer

Hi Paul,

Just a quick note to thank you for the work completed recently at our place and to complement you on the quality of your work. As you know, our floor was first polished by you approximately eight years ago. In my wife’s opinion, it was beginning to show some signs of ware in high use areas. The re-polish that you provided has restored it to a state that in my opinion, is better than it was originally. Your new polishers together with the fact that you now produce your own polishes, has resulted in a surface which highlights our house. Your workmanship was superior. You obviously take great pride in the quality of your work and did not leave until all surfaces were as you wanted them to be. It is unusual to see tradespeople exhibit this dedication. The fact that you were prepared to travel to the country to do this work was also something of which you should be proud. It is gratifying to know that the quality of work presented to Melbourne “top end” clients, is also available to us in the bush.

Thanks again and happy to know that you arrived home safely after your late departure. I am looking forward to receiving your floor wash product in the near future.

Regards,

Ian Martin

Constructing Spaces Pty Ltd contracted Geocrete to undertake the polishing of an expansive concrete floor in Kew.

Geocrete were meticulous in their execution of the process and the result was excellent.

Our dealings with Geocrete, in particular with Paul Warner, were professional and at all times we were informed with relevant information always forthcoming.

Constructing Spaces Pty Ltd would highly recommend Geocrete.

Constructing Spaces Pty Ltd

This company contracted Paul Warner of Geocrete to complete the concrete polishing to the ground floor areas of two luxury homes we were building, in the bayside area.

The floor areas to these homes were quite large and expansive, so I was a little concerned on what the finished job would look like. I am now pleased to say EVERYONE who enters either of these homes cannot help but express their admiration for the perfectly finished mirror appearance, especially in the evening when the lights are reflected off the floor.

Paul provided great professional advice from the beginning regarding preparation and aggregates, prior to the floors being poured and then kept myself and my team up to date during the grinding and finishing process.

After our stair people accidentally drilled a hole in the wrong position, it was not a problem at all for Paul to return and repair this at a moment’s notice.

From our dealings with Geocrete, we have no hesitation in recommending their services for any concrete polishing projects you may be considering. Paul is undeniably passionate and enthusiastic about his craft with attention to detail that belies belief.

These homes now have beautiful polished concrete floors that Geocrete guarantees for ten years against scratching, peeling, chipping, marking and flaking.

Paul Warner from Geocrete was our builder’s choice of contractor to complete the polished concrete floor in our new townhouse and we couldn’t be happier with the choice, or the results!

Paul worked closely with our builder and his team, for whom polished concrete was also a first-time experience, and his advice ensured that the perfect preparation and process was followed.

We had some idea of what was to come in the early days of the build when the concrete slab received its initial grind and the aggregate was exposed to our desired level but this was nothing compared to the breathtaking sight of the finished product once the Geoshine process had taken place and the colour, pattern and natural beauty of the floor was lovingly revealed.

Paul is clearly a man who loves his work and takes enormous professional and artistic pride in the floors he creates – neither he, our builder nor myself could wipe the smiles from our faces when appraising the final product in all its glory.

My overwhelming impression of the final product was that it was like walking on a piece of art. My gorgeous polished concrete floor will be the showpiece from which I will take inspiration for decorating the rest of the home but the floor itself will always be the “star” of the show, thanks to Paul and Geocrete.

Nicole and Darren Morris

Dear Paul,

I have absolute admiration and appreciation for your dedication and commitment to producing an outstanding product. There is no doubt in my mind that you are an exceptional artisan regarding your profession.

What you do is nothing short of perfection and I appreciate how you have been most helpful in rearranging schedules to assist us.

You will be most welcome to visit us in the future and arrange a photo shoot that we hope will also be of further assistance to you in promoting your excellent business.

Kind regards,

Clive Potter.

We have recently completed the floor polishing on our house and the result has more than lived up to and then exceeded our expectations.

Working with Paul from the start of the project has been a total pleasure, his level of professionalism and commitment goes way beyond what you would expect. He gave us great advice from the beginning in regard to all aspects of the job , preparation , aggregates , concerete and lots of little things you wouldnt realise you had to think about.

He also did a fantastic job repairing one of our bathrooms where the floor had been scuffed and scratched quite heavily during the building process by some heavy machinery.

We can not recommend Paul highly enough , everyone who has seen the floors had commented on the quality of the finish and the outstanding result.

Wayne and Deborah Morris

Very happy with the job done. Paul made a disaster of a concrete job look great. Very professional, honest and clean. He stepped me through every part of the job as he went along.

I highly recommend Paul from Geocrete for anyone looking to have a good well done.

Thanks again.

Gab from Greenvale

Paul Warner at Geocrete changed our lives. After having our dream house floors polished and being most disappointed with the finish, Paul undertook the job of re-grinding and re-polishing our suspended slab beach house.

Paul’s commitment and enthusiasm for the work to be undertaken (which was mammoth as we were living in our house) was nothing short of amazing. He and his staff worked tirelessly hour after hour and the finished results achieved are brilliant.

Every single day we comment on how fantastic our floors look. Paul transformed what was average looking polished concrete into an absolute stunning feature and something we and our visitors never fail to notice.

If it’s attention to detail with full commitment to achieving the best possible results for your valuable home you are after, then Paul Warner of Geocrete is your man. This guy lives and loves his work 16 hours a day.

Hey Paul We are still in awe of the Geoshine™ floor you created for us. Many, many thanks.

Richie and Di Laing

Polished concrete was the preferred choice of floor for our new rural home but we were concerned that variability in both the concrete and polishing methods would mean that our expectations might not be met.

Furthermore, the job of choosing a polishing contractor was difficult as it became apparent in the quoting stage of the job that standards of workmanship in the industry vary greatly.

From the outset Paul demonstrated that he was there to get the job done. Very committed to our project, working long hours and operating with very good equipment.

Having been involved in the concrete industry for many years I have seen the best and worst of concrete trades.

Paul has a degree of enthusiasm for concrete as a material and a passion for what he does that is unusual in the industry, and this shows in the exceptional work he produces.

His professionalism, his attention to detail and the lengths he went to to patch and repair the inevitable surface imperfections on our job certainly exceeded our expectations.

The finished floor is outstanding, a real feature of the house, and we couldn’t be happier with the result

Peter and Anne Lyon

Dear Paul,

Thank you for completing such a fantastic finish on our polished concrete floor. Your advice when choosing a granite and finish was exemplary. We absolutely love our floor – it is the highlight of our house. We would highly recommend your services.

Thanks

Marcus and Simonne Liberman

After deciding on polished concrete for our new renovation we were given several contractors from our concrete supplier.

We obtained 2 quotes, one of which was from Geocrete.

Whilst both quotes were competitive, the choice soon became obvious.

Paul Warner from Geocrete was extremely helpful. Along with his written quote he provided written step by step information as to the process involved. He was happy to liaise with our Concreter to ensure perfect preparation enabling him to achieve the best result possible.

After the initial ‘grind’, Paul immediately contacted us from the site to give us feedback. In fact he even sent photos/video through from his phone as we were unable to get there.

Such is Paul’s pride and passion for his work, he was very keen for us to be there after the final process, to see our reaction.

It is absolutely stunning.

Everyone that has seen the polished concrete floor is amazed at the result, including tradesmen and friends. It has become the ‘feature’ of the renovation.

We would highly recommend Paul Warner from Geocrete.

He is professional, efficient, a perfectionist in his craft and clearly takes great pride in his work.

Kathryn & Nik Papanikolaou

Dear Paul,

I just wanted to write to you to express my gratitude for the job you did on my slab. The final product came up like glass and I couldn’t be more happy with the job you did. Your professionalism was apparent from the moment you started the polish to the time you left.

I will be telling everyone I know contemplating grinding and polishing a concrete floor to look no further than Geocrete. They truly are the leader
in their field. Thanks again.

Yours Sincerely,

Clive Rutter

Hi Paul,

Just wanted to contact you to thank you so much for the oustanding polished concrete works at our new home in Mt Martha.
Your professionalizm & high levels of service have really impressed us.

The quality finishes in our new home have been enhanced by our polished concrete, our floors look amazing and all our friends have comented on what a top finish has been achieved. A real test of any contractor is after sales service and your prompt returning to site to rectify a minor concern made the big point of differance to our family.

To return to site, at no additional cost to your client, carefully move our furniture and to provide a 100% finish to our floors, was very much appreciated & shows how much you care about the pursuit of excellence. Job very well done & we are happy to vouch for your works to any prospective clients.

Regards,

Trevor & Mary Bolton

We decided to choose polished concrete for the renovation of our 2 storey Victorian Terrace for various reasons – its appearance, durability, simplicity and lack of maintenance.The finished product has more than matched our expectations. It looks and feels great and blends in with the rest of our reno very well. Geocrete Concrete Polishers, one of the contractors recommended by Hansons Construction Materials, did a great job without anyinconvenience, were well organised, very professional, and in and out within 2 days to produce a very nice finished product. We chose both product and contractor very well and can recommend Geocrete to all prospective buyers.

Ken and I are absolutely delighted with the quality of work done by Paul. His attention to detail and his enthusiasm is contagious!

His suggestions for maintenance are very helpful and I  would recommend Geocrete to anyone wanting a unquie floor surface.

Jenny & Ken Barnes

As a builder coming across a qualified tradesman with integrity and skill to match is not only refreshing, but reassuring and critical in the operation and success of my business. Geocrete’s approach is professional complete with exception service backed up with quality equipment.

Paul was well spoken and always on time.

I am extremely pleased with my polished concrete floor and can confidently recommend Geocrete to others.

Tony Psirris, SOHO BUILDERS

Both of us are qualified visual artists and as a consequence we have considerable experience, awareness and knowledge of aesthetics plus proficiency and technical skills. Despite the fact that our job was small in relation to many building projects, Paul’s approach was extremely professional and efficient. His ability to communicate and listen is refreshing.

Paul is passionate and enthusiastic about his ideas, skills and craftsmanship. His attention to detail elevates his results to a high level.

Paul is very reliable and organised, qualities which are often lacking in quite a few current trades workers. We have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending him.

Paul & Wendy Satchell

We are writing to let you know how thrilled we are with our polished floors, hearth and kitchen bench top.

Having previously used concrete flooring in our home we were very keen to use it again when building our new beach house at Inverloch. However the result in this home that you were able to achieve for us has surpassed our expectations and given us a surface that could only be described as perfect.

As a contractor working on our home we have found you so professional and involved with our project, and you obviously have a passion and a great pride in your workmanship and the end result. Your consultations prior to commencing the job and your follow-up after we moved in have given us enormous confidence and trust in you and we would not hesitate to recommend you – in fact we already have to several friends.

Over 10 years we have built and renovated six homes and come into contact with many trades people. It has been an absolute pleasure to have you work on our home, and we have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is contemplating using concrete in their home. Your skill and craftsmanship has certainly given us a huge ‘wow’ factor in our new home – congratulations and thankyou.

Kind Regards,

Brad and Gabe Frampton

On behalf of Insite Architects I wanted to take the time to let you know how pleased we are with the Geocrete counter recently completed at the new Café for Melbourne Zoo.

Having never previously used polished concrete for this type of application your professional approach, advice on the product and consultations were outstanding.

We are extremely happy with the end result and will definitely consider using Geocrete for future projects. Thank you.

Regards,

We would like to thank Paul from Geocrete for our magnificent floors.

When we decided to “owner” build we knew we wanted polished concrete floors throughout the whole house. The decision to use Paul was based on a feeling we had that he would work closely with us, be flexible and helpful along the way, this was important as we had no previous experience. Our hunch was right, Paul was a pleasure to work with, highly professional and reliable and always more than willing to answer our many questions. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Geocrete.

From before the slab was poured Paul worked with us to ensure everything went to plan, he was onsite the day of the pour and assisted the concreter in the finish required. At the start, we were quite nervous as it is not something you can change afterwards, but the floors look amazing and the finish has well and truly exceeded our expectations.

Thank you Paul, we could not be happier.

Sincerely,

Jane and Damian Lamb

Paul of Geocrete was contracted to provide a polished concrete “Hiperfloor” finish to our home extension. Paul also provided advice and supervision at many critical stages of a complex process from conversing with contractors and attending the pour, ensuring the nessesary steps were taken to curing of the slab to minimise cracking.

Paul conducted himself in a most professional manner and at all times was contactable to answer any questions. We also found Paul to be thorough and paid a great deal of attention to detail.

Pauls knowledge has provided us with a fantastic looking floor that always receives a great deal of compliments.

We have no hesitation in recommending Paul for your polished concrete floors.

Salvatore and Erminia

How hard is it to find someone with integrity, fair priced, does a great job and is a nice person too! Practically, impossible let me tell you! I have just completed a new home and dealing with contractors is a nightmare! Well, I found Paul through my landscaper Jonathon Cooper (Cooper & Stewart). I was trying to save on costs and thought of just sealing the concrete in the garage. However, Jonathon persuaded me to go the extra and get a product that would last a lifetime if well looked after rather than a couple of years.

Paul came to see me and was very friendly and patient and answered all of my questions. He told me his prices, which I thought very fair, and he started the job that would take a couple of days. He could have finished early but he was not satisfied and came back and extra day. It is not often that I am lost for words or am dumbfounded but when I saw the completed floor I was both! It was like a glass finish!! And this was just plain, oridinary concrete! I had no idea it could look so good. I think Paul got great pleasure at my reaction to seeing the floor !

Paul did comment that the concreter did a great job laying the concrete and this always helps to make a better finish.

I would not, for a second, hestitate to recommend Paul. If you are thinking of polishing your concrete then look no further. This man is a real find. Use his services and then pass his name on to your friends. You will not be dissapointed!

As I have said, I have been through the mill to find good people that have integrity and perform good work. I was so fortunate to have found this man who is an Artist at his job!

Crompton

Hello Paul ,

Would like to say how pleased i am with my floors , polished concrete throughout my home from front door to back , and all looks outstanding . Wasn’t sure what to expect and how to go from indoors to out , was guided by Paul about the different finishes avaliable , his advice provided me with an insight into the versatility of the polished concrete floor.

His vision was clearly related to me and the end result is ideal. I now have a resilient and bright floor that creates a sense of space in a small environment. To obtain a result like this in a few days , with promises being fullfilled in a timely and efficient manner was great , punctuality and rapid work was a pleasure , especially in the world of renovations where so many things can take so much time .

I would recommend Geocrete concrete polishing without hesitation and can vouch for their proffesionalism and efficency, as well as a very helpfull amount of input and thought , well expressed about what was going on at all stages.

Thanks

Tim
