Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an alternative to the exposed aggregate look?
Certainly! By adjusting the depth of the grind, different levels of stone/aggregate exposure can be achieved, allowing for a non-exposed aggregate finish.
Can you apply a Grind and Seal to an existing concrete slab?
Absolutely! If you're tired of the old look of carpet and floor boards and desire a fresh new appearance, we can seal the concrete beneath, creating a new, contemporary, and low maintenance floor. The final result will depend on factors such as the type of concrete, the MPA of the slab, aggregate density, and the condition and level of damage to the concrete floor.
What about 75-year-old concrete that is pitted, well-worn or has had coatings applied?
No worries at all! After our work is complete, you'll have a sleek, brand-new concrete surface.
Are there any harmful VOC’s?
Polyurethane/Water Base Epoxy floors have extremely low levels of VOCs once they have fully cured.
Is a Grind and Seal floor slippery for outdoors?
No, it doesn't have to be. We can incorporate a non-slip additive to provide a surface that is safe and slip-resistant. However, without the anti-slip additive, the floor can become slippery when wet.
How is it done?
We utilize diamond discs that are mounted onto a heavy-duty grinder weighing over 400 kilos. These coarse grit discs effectively remove imperfections and level the floor. Once the desired level of aggregate exposure is achieved, the floor is sealed with a high-grade coating. UV protection and non-slip additives can be included as needed.
How long will it last?
Grind and Seal floors are exceptionally durable and can last for over 5 years, depending on traffic conditions. Additionally, they can be re-sealed at a minimal cost, ensuring the longevity of the floor.
Can the shine be destroyed?
Yes, it is possible, but not easily. Pouring muriatic acid or using strong acids on the floor can etch the surface and destroy the shine. However, any etched areas can be easily repaired.
Is the process dusty or messy?
No, it is not. Our state-of-the-art equipment minimizes dust during the process, making it almost dust-free.
Where are Grind and Seal floors found?
Grind and Seal floors can be found in a variety of settings, including warehouses, restaurants, retail stores, residential properties, showrooms, outdoor concrete surfaces, and many more applications.
