  • harder and stronger
  • environmentally sustainable

Concrete Grinding

Typically grinding is done on concrete surfaces that have deep scratches and is very dull due to lack of maintenance or heavy wear and tear. It can also be used to rectify uneven floors.

We use suitable abrasives with a special grinding machine fitted with diamond grinding wheel to remove these scratches. This would grind down the floor and remove the deep scratches to give it a very smooth floor. In other words a thin layer of the concrete is removed till there aren’t any scratches.

Ideally a proper grinding would be followed by honing to give a matte finish or polishing to give a gloss finish.

Concrete Honing

Honing is a lighter version of concrete grinding. If you have light scratches, scuff marks, oil, acid and water marks, honing is what you should go with. 

Typically, honing removes a thinner layer of concrete with regards to grinding. This is done by using appropriate abrasives and proper honing wheels. 

Honing gives a matte finish to the floor and if you want to give it shine you should polish it.

Concrete Polishing

Polishing is the final part of the process. It is what gives the floor its shine. The process involves smoothing down the floor until it becomes shinny and glossy.

Once the buffing is done we use proper sealer to safeguard the surface against future scratches.
