Although they look smooth to the naked eye, brand new concrete slabs are never completely flat. If you have just installed concrete as a foundation for other coverings, you’re going to need floor preparation. Following our meticulous process, your new surface will be perfect for the next stage of installation.
Concrete floor preparation performs a range of functions. Firstly, it is a great way to remove any mess and debris left by other tradespeople, including plasterers and painters. Concrete surface preparation also removes the high and low points that naturally occur in the concrete pouring process. Having a completely flat and even surface allows for other flooring methods — like tiling, carpet, and floorboards — to more easily adhere to the concrete.
Consider floor preparation as the final safeguard in floor projects. Whether you are applying concrete veneers, tiles, carpet, or floorboards, the surface needs to be absolutely perfect for proper adherence.
This process performs many other functions, including:

Shot-blasting blasts high velocity equipment against the substrate, leaving behind the perfect surface for other materials like vinyl, carpet, and epoxy to adhere to.
At Policrete, we follow this basic process to get your concrete floor grinding job underway:
No. The process is likely to differ depending on the final outcome you want for your flooring. For instance, floor preparation and grinding for the installation of carpet will be different to the process required for laying terrazzo tiling.
