Technical advances have taken over concrete grinding. Heavy machines are used to polish the concrete to make a surface so smooth that you completely forget that the concrete is.
If the existing concrete floor is badly damaged by cracks and holes, the contractor can cover it with a self-leveling cement-based coating so that the concrete appears uniform. Aggregate, broken glass or other materials can be added to the overlay.
After all, the decorative work has been completed and color has been added, the polishing process can begin. The Rock Up Group polishing process uses a series of diamond grains that decrease in size depending on the number of finishes desired.
This is very similar to wood sanding where finer sandpaper is used to obtain a smoother surface. After the first sanding, the floor will get the right look as it will expose the mixed inert material.
After polishing is complete, a sealant can be added to protect the surface from spills and stains. A variety of acrylic sealants are available and can be used on both interior and exterior surfaces.
Once you have laid a concrete floor, it will need to be sealed to protect it from external elements that can damage it. Concrete sealants are compounds that seal this porous material and make it safe so that no water or other absorbent substances get into the material.
