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.

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.
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
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.
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.

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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
