What is Concrete Grinding?

Concrete Grinding is a very common process that is used to help improve the condition, the imperfections or inconsistencies that are found on the concrete surface in order to create an improved appearance, a smoother surface and a more usable concrete surface. Proper concrete preparation and concrete grinding is often overlooked but is an essential and critical step prior to any epoxy floor coating or any type of resident flooring application being installed. At Concrete Inspirations we assess the required amount of grinding that is needed and will grind the concrete to different depth levels depending on the project specifications to help restore your concrete floor.

Where is Concrete Grinding Used?

Concrete grinding is used for any residential commercial or industrial concrete floor where signs of unevenness in the concrete are apparent or where there are any signs of the concrete deterioration or spalling. Concrete grinding is also used to remove old or failed floor coatings such as epoxy flooring, concrete paint, floor glue and adhesives, mastics or where there are noticeable concrete imperfections and unevenness in the concrete slab that make tile or other flooring options difficult or impossible to install.
