Grind and seal concrete - What Exactly is it?

Grind and seal concrete is literally just that. Grind the concrete and then seal it with a topcoat that will be suit your necessities.

There isn’t much to seal and grind concrete as far as aesthetic goes, or as far as fanciness goes.

This service is made for when protection is all your looking for.
Or, if you like the concrete look, but you know polished concrete is more than what you want to spend.

Grind and seal concrete - The process

In just about everything that you do, there is a process to ensure that your task is successful. Grind and seal concrete is no different.
There may be more than one correct and effective way to do a task, your garage floor included, but this is how we go about it.
Here’s a brief overview.

  1. Prepare the surface.
    The concrete needs to be prepped in order for the epoxy to adhere to your garage floor. Have you ever tried to stick tape to a dirty surface?
    No good, right?
    This is no different. That’s why this is probably the most important step.
  2.  Vapor Barrier (if needed)
    As far as we’re concern, this step is just as crucial. The purpose of the vapor barrier is to help mitigate moisture. Industrial grade garage epoxy floor materials are not breathable, thus, overtime, water issues may arise. We don’t like issues; I’m assuming you don’t either. Thus, why we consider this step exceptionally important.
  3. Topcoat
    Once we’ve prepped the floor and the vapor barrier situation is squared away. It’s time to put on the topcoat.
    Once the right topcoat is put on, job is done!

There’s a lot more to it, do not get me wrong, but this is just so you get the gist of it.

Grind and seal concrete - Benefits

The benefit of this grind and seal concrete service is to protect the concrete. And that’s kind of it.
Unless you like the aesthetics of concrete itself, of course. Otherwise, protection, simplicity and cost effective is all we’re shooting for me.

One thing to keep in mind though is that, if there are any repairs that need to be made (cracks/patching, etc.) they will stick out like a sore thumb.

Grind and seal concrete - Great! where can I get this done?

Good question!
As long as it’s concrete and inside, anywhere you like!

Though for most people I would presumably assume that they would place this in their basement and/or garage.
Unless you like the look of concrete, I’m pretty sure you’d like something prettier in your kitchen or dining room or something.

Grind and seal concrete - Everything sounds great! How much?

Another great question!
Not so easy to answer.

Some of the factors included are.
– Size of project.
– Access to project (is it relatively easy to get to or will it be a pain in the butt to get things in there?)
– Condition of current surface (meaning, is it brand new or will it need a lot of TLC?).
– Will something need to be removed (old coating/paint/tile glue/etc.)
– Your timeframe (meaning, do you need it done yesterday or can it be added to the current schedule?).

See why this is not such a simple answer?

We do not charge by the square foot; we charge by the job.

Grind and seal concrete – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question #1 – My concrete is badly damaged. Will this grind and seal concrete service fix it?
 – No! It most definitely will not!
If the concrete is failing, has sunken, clear signs of being that badly degraded, you may have to rip out and replace.
All things have an expiration date, and such said concrete has most definitely reached it.

Question #2 – If I do have to replace the concrete, will you do it?
– No, we will not. We do not pour concrete.

Question #3 – My concrete is cracked. Will it show through the topcoat?
– Yes, because it is clear.
And even there’s a good chance that it will hold (not guaranteed though.) it will not look pretty by any means.

Question #4 – How long will this grind and seal concrete service last?
– Hard to say because we don’t know your living habits. For residential it will most definitely last longer than commercial.
For commercial expect somewhere up to 3 years: for residential, longer.

Question #5 – “Well maintained?” What exactly do I need to do? 
– Spilled something on it? clean it up.
Dawn soap and water.
These topcoats were made to be as maintenance free as you could possibly make them.

Question #6 – You’ve mentioned garaged. Would this system work there?
 – Absolutely!
Just remember, cannot drive on it for about two weeks.

Question #7 – You’ve mentioned this is not polished concrete. What’s the difference?
 – I only know the basics, so I will not speak for more than that. Meaning, there could be more differences as well.
Polished concrete is just the concrete itself, being polished to whatever grit needed for the job. But at the end of the day, it is JUST the concrete. Nothing on top. Therefore, being chemical resistant is out the window.
Grind and seal concrete though, it does have a topcoat on it. Therefore, if chemical resistant is a necessity, we’re back in business!
