We use high-performance concrete sealers, that are designed to stand up to heavy traffic in different settings. Our sealers are resistant to chipping, scratching and other types of damage. As they are water resistant, liquids cannot penetrate, damage or stain your concrete.
As our concrete sealers penetrate the concrete surface, they wear away only when the substrate surface wears away, between 5-10 years depending on how heavy the usage is.
With its smooth surface, sealed concrete won't harbor any dirt, dust or allergens, making it easy to clean, requiring only occasional mopping.
The sealed concrete also resists the marking of heavy equipment and staining from oils and chemical spills.
The upkeep of grind and seal is also relatively lower than for polished concrete.
Grind and seal doesn't require as much floor prep as polished concrete. Compared to polished concrete which can reach up to 3000 grid polish, with grind and seal, the concrete is grinded only up to 400 grid. This removes the added cost of lengthy floor preparation.
Unpolished and untreated concrete is porous, which results in fine concrete dusting laying around your property. Concrete dusting is not only bad for your health, but can also damage delicate equipment and manufacturing good. By sealing your concrete and preventing the wear and tear, you are ultimately protecting your health and your investment.
The most common places we find untreated concrete is basements, garages, warehouses, patios, walkways, driveways, foyers and entryways. The thing these places have in common is the constant access to water.
Concrete sealers are water tight, preventing water from soaking into the concrete and damaging it. It also prevents concrete joints corrosion, caused by water.
Being water tight makes grind and seal suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Grind and seal Albuquerque comes in matte, satin or gloss finish. If you don't want to keep the natural concrete look, you can choose from an array of different concrete dyes and stains, to enhance the natural look of the concrete and to match with your interior and exterior.
Almost any structurally sound concrete floor can be polished, no matter new or old.
We start by mechanically grinding the concrete floor, until we remove all dirt, grime, oil, glue, paint, and stains.
At this stage, we also aim to reveal the stones in the concrete slab.
Once the concrete is fully ground, we move on to repair all cracks and holes in the floor. Repairing the cracks and holes gives the finished floor an extra charm, while it preserves its structural integrity
Once the concrete slab is fully prepared we finish off the concrete with a penetrating topcoat to suit the environment.
Please note that if the concrete has higher level of moisture, sealing it can cause moisture and water being trapped in it and ultimately damaging the final finish.
For newly poured concrete floors, the concrete slab must be at least 28 days old and fully dried and cured.
