Our team focuses on polyaspartic coatings for your garage, basement, patio, and porch it help extend the life of your concrete while also helping your areas become more slip resistant and easier to clean.
Before we apply any coating to your concrete, we work to prep the area for the best floor coating results. One option we use to prep your floor is the process of diamond grinding. Learn more about how diamond grinding works and how it can help your floor coating.
What Is Diamond Grinding?
This method of grinding is used to restore the concrete in preparation for a new application of coating. We use a machine diamond grinder that has rotating discs to cover all the surfaces evenly. Diamond grinders use diamond-tipped blades to even out texture or flaws in your current floor.
Using these machines comes with the benefit of an attached vacuum to collect dust that is created while we are in the grinding process. This helps to keep the area clean and helps us be able to apply your polyaspartic coating in just one day because the clean-up process after grinding is almost nonexistent. The process of diamond grinding removes uneven concrete, and unnecessary texture and addresses the issues of faulting and cracks, or wheel rutting.
Benefits Of Diamond Grinding Before A Floor Coating
Grindin helps address many issues that may occur in your concrete flooring. Uneven surfaces, faulting at joints or cracking in the concrete, worn spots, or highly stained surfaces can all be improved by grinding down the floor. Homeowners may think that applying a coating can help improve these issues on its own, but grinding before application helps the coating to stick properly and do its job of protecting your current concrete.
How Grinding Helps Prep For Polyaspartic Coatings
When we apply a floor coating to an already damaged surface, the final product ends up being damaged as well. Polyaspartic coatings will only adhere to the surface that is there and stick to valleys and ridges. Solid Custom Floor Coatings works with diamond grinding to ensure that the finished coating is smooth.
Besides grinding, filling in cracks and pits is also part of our restoration process to make the coating process easier. Grinding and cleaning up the dust properly is a sign of a professional garage flooring company that knows just how important restoring your floor is to keep your home safe and tidy.
Surfaces That Can Withstand Diamond Grinding
Before our team suggests diamond grinding for your concrete surface, we will take a look at how the surface can handle the grinding process. Some concrete surfaces such as ones with weak supporting soil, or ones that need multiple repairs. The hard grinding process could cause more cracking and damage if the concrete is weak.
Before our team at Solid starts your project, we analyze your garage or other concrete surfaces to help us know whether diamond grinding or shot blast is better for your surface. Making our polysapartic coatings look as beautiful as possible requires us to make your concrete as stable as possible.
