Increasing numbers of architects and design professionals are suggesting polished concrete to their clients who want a flooring option that is green, low maintenance, and durable.

The challenge is finding a contractor who can consistently meet specifications and can be relied upon to produce a high quality product. To meet that need, Green Umbrella has been instructing and training contractors in the GU mechanical process and treatment applications for 15 years that create an architectural concrete floor.

When contractors complete our comprehensive training program successfully, we can confidently refer them to you.

Green Umbrella has three different levels of certification offered to meet your needs. GU Applicator is trained and certified you to use our concrete treatments for an earth-friendly concrete floor. An applicator may be applying our product and does not need to have our equipment because it is not required to apply product.

The next level is a GU Craftsman. In addition to using our concrete treatments, the craftsman uses our abrasive mechanical process and Green Umbrella “or equal to” propane fueled equipment.

A GU Master Craftsman combines concrete polishing skills with the ability to perform placement and flatwork on new concrete.
