SURFACE PREPARATION

Did you know that coating performance is directly affected by surface preparation. Did you also know that coating integrity and service life will be reduced because of improperly prepared surfaces.

 

As high as 80% of all coating failures can be directly attributed to inadequate surface preparation that affects coating adhesion. That's why it's important to choose the properly trained professionals at Concrete Grinding Services.

Concrete Grinding Services offers a variety of surface preparation solutions. From floor leveling and scarifying to coating and adhesive removal, you can feel confident that our team of surface preparation specialists will get your concrete surface prepped and ready for the next phase of your project.

Our specialized equipment can remove paint, epoxies, adhesives, cementitious and other types of coatings from any flat concrete surface. The resulting substrate will have a slight to heavy etch depending on what type of coating was removed. If you are installing a new protective coating that requires a specific surface profile, we'll take the necessary steps to get you there before the job is complete.

 


Often times an interior concrete slab will need to be leveled prior to tile or wood laminate installation. An uneven slab can create costly problems with your hardwood and tile if not addressed before install. We use wet grinding process that minimizes dust and extra precautions are taken to protect walls and cabinets from dust or damage.


Most concrete coatings and overlays require the accepting surface to have a specific profile to allow for and adequate bond. We use the ICRI standards for proper surface profiling from acid etch to grinding, scarifying and shot blasting. It's very important to check your coating's specification sheet to determine the correct concrete surface profile needed for proper bonding of your new coating or overlay.

Typically a well prepared surface will be free from defects, dry, clean and in overall sound condition. Concrete Grinding Services will get your surface prepared the right way every time.
