So What Is Concrete Grinding Used For?
Concrete Grinders are commonly used to level off a slab, remove paints, glues, epoxies, stains, and other coatings from concrete in order to prepare for new floor coverings, coatings, or polish concrete surfaces to perfection.
Why Is Concrete Grinding Important?
Concrete Grinding is important prior to almost any flooring system being installed (apart from the carpet) floorboards, tiles, vinyl, lino, slate, epoxy, paint, waterproofing membranes, parquet, floor leveling agents, etc being installed. will all require Concrete Grindingprior to installation.
The concrete beneath can be rough and uneven and even have paint, epoxies, glues, cement residues, bumps, or other residues left on it. Making installing various flooring or paints, epoxies, etc on top impossible (or fail quickly)
This is why the contractor/business installing your new flooring system, floor leveling agent, or coatings. Contractors and businesses will refuse to give you any warranty on the job unless you have your Concrete Ground first.
Once Concrete Grinding has taken place and the smooth surface is revealed installing any alternative flooring option is easy.
Preparing the floors prior to the application of a new flooring system, epoxy or paint is the single biggest way to ensure the longevity of your new flooring system or coating. It is especially important if the floors are going to be polished, as the quality of the concrete will show through.
Restore concrete surfaces
Grinding concrete removes all imperfections and inconsistencies in the concrete, resulting in a smooth and usable surface. Old and damaged concrete surfaces can be restored to their former glory and used for years and years to come.
Remove paint, epoxies, dirt
Grinding removes paint, epoxies, dirt, and other remnants left on the concrete. The grinder rubs against the top layer of the floor leaving a smooth surface.
Concrete grinding can enhance safety by transforming a rough and damaged floor into a smooth, hard surface, reducing the risk of injury for homeowners and visitors. Additionally, when applied to driveways, it can create a quieter and more slip-resistant surface for vehicles.
Once the grinding has been completed and the smooth surface is left, any type of flooring option can be installed with ease. Floor preparation is key to the longevity of any kind of flooring option.
Improving surface reflectivity
Grinding can improve the reflectivity of polished concrete floors, creating a brighter and more attractive surface.
Grinding an existing concrete slab is more cost-effective than removing and installing a new one. Additionally, it can save money on the installation of other flooring systems which require a level and even surface for proper installation. Installing tiles or timber over an uneven surface can also be difficult and costly as the installers attempt to make the surface level. By grinding down the concrete to a smooth surface, you can save money in the long run.
