True Grit’s Concrete Polishing Process
Concrete doesn’t have to be grey and drab- it can also be beautiful. The commercial and industrial applications have extreme durability. The beauty of concrete can shine through and stay tougher than traditional flooring and last much longer with less maintenance. Here’s some guidelines to understand True Grit Concrete Polishing’s process.
Concrete Surface Preparation
Surface preparation can involve removal of old tile to expose the slab underneath. Surface prep includes taking out surface imperfections like cracks or pits. True Grit will fill the imperfections and flaws and level your floor. A fresh pour over a subfloor is another example of surface preparation. Once client’s expectations are met, the grid can begin.
Concrete grinding uses of coarse diamond abrasives to get down into the aggregate rock within the concrete. Grinding deeply exposes more rock and exposes concrete’s hidden beauty within. Results of your grind can produce a rock like surface or a granite look that becomes harder after further True Grit enhancement treatments.
Concrete polishing produces the sheen or luster that you desire. The polishing process uses fine diamond grit buffing to your expectations. The finer the grind, the higher the sheen that can be achieved. Dyes may also be used to further enhance the appearance of your floor.
A concrete maintenance plan chemically treats and seals in extra hard durability and beauty to protect your floor even more. Elasti-Deck is used to protect the surface from wear and tear and weathering. Maintenance plans apply guard treatments regularly, which greatly improves the durability and life of your poured concrete investment.
