Project Management

We will assign a project manager or an operator to ensure the job is done in timely and done right first time.

What is the basic Grind & Seal process? 

  • Remove existing coatings (for thick coatings, use a 16- or 20-grit diamond abrasive or more aggressive tool specifically for coating removal).
  • Grind with a 30- or 40-grit metal-bonded diamond.
  • Grind with an 70 or 80-grit metal-bonded diamond.
  • Grind with a 120 or 150-grit metal-bonded diamond (or finer, if desired).
  • Finish with 2 coats of polyurethane sealer.

What is the basic Hiperfloor process? 

  • Remove existing coatings with 16- or 20-grit diamond abrasive or more aggressive tool specifically for coating removal.
  • Grind with a 30- or 40-grit metal-bonded diamond.
  • Grind with an 80-grit metal-bonded diamond.
  • Grind with a 150-grit metal-bonded diamond (or finer, if desired).
  • Apply a chemical hardener to densify the concrete.
  • Polish with a 50 grit resin-bond diamond pad
  • Polish with a 100 grit resin-bond diamond pad
  • Polish with a 200 grit resin-bond diamond pad
  • Polish with a 400-grit resin-bond diamond pad.
  • Polish with an 800-grit resin-bond diamond pad.
  • Polish with a 1500 grit resin-bond diamond pad. (low shine)

Polished Concrete FAQs:

Q. Can you choose the colour of the polished concrete?
A. Yes however if you want to polish the concrete of an existing slab then you are limited usually to whatever is already in the concrete. If you are pouring a new slab you can choose the colour of your cement and the colour of your stone (aggregate). T

Q. What does polished concrete cost?
A. It is usually worked out on a square meter rate and price again depends on the procedure ie: – grind & seal or hiperfloor, the level of exposure and the condition of concrete etc.
It is best to ask us for a quote. Any jobs that are under 30m2 are usually quoted on a job rate rather than cost per square meter.

Q. How do I clean my polished concrete?
A. The best way to keep your polished concrete in good condition is to use a ph neutral cleaner followed by clean water for spills, otherwise a microfiber mop will get rid of dust.

Q. If I am pouring a new concrete slab, when is the best time for the concrete to be polished?
A. It is best that we get in touch with your concreter as soon as possible. But as a general rule the concrete should be cured for 28 days before we get on and grind.

Q. Will it feel cold to walk on with bare feet?
A. Suprisingly NO. Unlike tiles that have a small thermal mass, due to the size of the slab it is a good insulator and therefore will feel much warmer than tiles to touch.

Q. Is polished concrete slippery?
A. Generally speaking it is no more slippery than other hard flooring surfaces. Add water to it though and like any other surface it will be slippery.

Q. How do I maintain my polished concrete?
A. Grind and seals will need to be resealed every 4-5 years depending on the quality of sealer you have selected, and if you leave it too long you will need to have the floor re-grinded and sealed again. For hiperfloors generally you can just reapply the protective sealer every 10 years.

Q. Is polished concrete environmentally friendly?
A. Yes, often polishing jobs are done on existing concrete which is made from the most common mineral on earth – limestone. Polished floors will out perform timber, steel, carpet and tiles.

Q. I suffer from allergies and athsma, is polished concrete a good solution for me?
A. Yes, in fact it is one of the best solutions for you. Polished concrete floors will not support the growth of toxic mould, dirt, pollen or dust mites and therefore is perfect for any sufferers of athsma or other allergies.
