A little late to chime in but just in Case,
First I would not make shallow cuts as they may not control cracking as well. I had my slab burnished in by the finisher, and then we used a surface Retarder to slow the curing as it was on insulation. It was then immediately covered with plastic sheeting, for several days. It was then saw cut on a 4 foot grid, 1 inch deep, by someone that takes great pride in his cuts. After framing but before sheetrock, A garage floor guy came in and with diamond pucks gave it a once over, put backer rod in all the cuts to allow grout to adhere should we decide to use it,then used an acrylic sealer, instead of epoxy as epoxy will yellow in the sun. He charged $1.50 per Square foot.
The plastic working with the water and sealer gave us a pattern like a leopard pattern which we love. We have Zero cracks.

I want to get as close to a zero net home as I can, this mean South facing widows with concrete floor for free Winter heat from the sun.
So I have learned a lot about concrete floors today, at least what to ask about & I love the "get everyone hired & on the same page BEFORE pouring" comment.
I will reading this thread many times before I pour. Thanks everyone.

Polished concrete floors have become increasingly popular in recent years because of their durability, low maintenance, and sleek, modern appearance. When done correctly, a polished concrete dallas floor can last for decades without needing to be refinished or replaced. One advantage of having the concrete polished before framing is that the contractor will have more flexibility to work on the surface without worrying about damaging the framing. However, it may be more difficult to protect the surface during the construction process, so you should ensure that the contractor takes appropriate measures to protect the surface. If you choose to have the walls in place before polishing, the contractor will have to be more careful when polishing the edges to ensure that they are uniform with the rest of the floor. It's important to choose an experienced contractor who has a good track record with this type of work. In terms of pricing, the cost of polished concrete can vary widely depending on a variety of factors such as the condition of the existing concrete, the level of polishing desired, and the complexity of the project. It's important to get multiple quotes from reputable contractors to ensure that you're getting a fair price. Overall, polished concrete floors can be a great choice for homeowners looking for a durable, low-maintenance flooring option with a modern aesthetic. However, it's important to do your research and choose an experienced contractor who can deliver a high-quality result.
