Concrete is a great and durable substance. Not only can it be molded into all sorts of shapes, but it can withstand the elements and consistent use for years. However, the topmost layer of concrete often becomes subject to chipping, cracks or differences in elevation. When your concrete could obviously use a little love, there is no reason that you need to dig up and re-pour the entire slab when diamond grinding can do the trick. Are you unsure of what diamond grinding is? Let’s discuss.
While concrete is made of a mixture of a few materials, the uppermost layer is generally made to be the smoothest and therefore the most prone to cracks or other blemishes, which are then worsened by the elements. When you have surface issues like these that don’t extend to the entire slab, diamond grinding can be the ideal solution. Diamond grinding is similar to refinishing a piece of furniture, but instead of using sandpaper to buff out nicks and blemishes on an old table, professionals use specialized sanders to grind out the upper layers of your concrete, leaving you with a smooth, even finish that can then be refinished.
After diamond grinding has been completed, you can either re-pour a layer of concrete that will allow for a smooth finish or you could also apply an epoxy finish for a durable, resilient finish. Here at Ample Epoxy Systems, we would love to tell you more about how we use diamond grinding to help people refinish and improve the look of their concrete slabs.
