Grind & Seal FAQ

Q.

Is there an alternative to the exposed aggregate look?

Yes! The depth of the grind can give different levels of stone/aggregate exposure showing in the final finish. A non-exposed aggregate finish can be achieved.

Q.

Can you apply a Grind and Seal to an existing concrete slab?

A.

Yes, if you are tired of the old look of carpet and floor boards and you want a fresh new look we can seal the concrete underneath providing a new, contemporary, low maintenance floor. The overall look will depend upon the type of concrete MPA of the slab, the aggregate density and the state and level of damage to the concrete floor.
