Diamond grinding is a technique used to create smooth, durable floors in homes, commercial buildings, factories, garages, and showrooms. A diamond grinding machine uses diamond segments on large rotating heads that grind away at rough, imperfect floors to create a truly fresh slate for your new layer of epoxy without the use of stripping chemicals. A hygienic option, diamond grinding uses a built-in concrete vacuum system that eliminates concrete dust from the air. Eliminate trip hazards at your home or business by prioritizing this important treatment for concrete floors!
When working on concrete repairs or redoing a space to be both safe and aesthetically pleasing, diamond grinding is essential for removing irregularities, erasing pitting, eliminating deteriorated concrete, and smoothing a flooring surface. This is one of the best ways to create a baseline for safe and beautiful epoxy floors in industrial spaces, retail stores, warehouses, or a commercial kitchen. In fact, diamond grinding is considered the industry standard compared to other options due to its ability to open the pores of the concrete to facilitate an excellent bond for your epoxy. Diamond grinding is effective for removing:
Diamond grinding can strengthen and protect floors when used in conjunction with specialty sealers and densifiers. The end result provides unmatched protection against heavy foot traffic, vehicle traffic, soil, oils, moisture, and more. Diamond grinding is also considered the standard when preparing a floor for an application of polished concrete. A concrete grinder can even be used to help even out wavy concrete floors.
Our professional team at Engineered Surface Systems (ESS) can help to return your rough concrete slab to "like new" condition using diamond grinding. This treatment is also critical for extending the life of concrete flooring for many years to come. Concrete surfaces are vulnerable to irregularities that occur when a slab experiences warping, faulting, and curling. Age, wear and tear, freeze-thaw heaving, and faulty original installation can all contribute to slab deterioration. However, rain exposure is also a common reason why diamond grinding is necessary to restore concrete. It's also possible that your concrete requires diamond grinding due to a construction event that has compromised its integrity and beauty.
