Concrete Coating Removal
Unfortunately, sealed concrete surfaces can become problematic. They can chip away and lose their bond resulting in a concrete floor that looks terrible and becomes uneven – perhaps even a hazard.
At Concrete Floor Systems, we’re able to remove old coatings and restore your concrete floor to a beautiful, LEED-Certified non-skid surface that is much lower maitnenance and lifetime cost than coated concrete floors.
Milling concrete is done for a variety of purposes including:
- Coating Removal
- Providing texture to make public walkways slip resistant (or to remove uneven protrusions)
- Fixing uneven surfaces
- Joint leveling
Concrete milling machines – or scarifiers – are used in concrete milling applications.
Concrete Shaving is the provess of removing the very top layers of concrete floors by using a concrete shaver and leaving these floors at the desired depth. Concrete shaving is used for uneven or coated concrete surfaces and also for the removal of contaminated concrete. Concrete shaving is highly precise with an accuracy of under 1 mm.
Concrete Shot Blasting
Concrete shot blasting is sometimes used as part of the concrete preparation process. Shot blasting concrete floors leaves the floors very rough and dry. The result is a surface that is clean and dry and ready to be resurfaced or have coatings applied.
Should You Shot Blast Your Concrete Floor? Probably not…
Unless you want corn rows and micro fissures…
There are companies who will shot blast floors, but we have found that grinding the floors to remove a coating is a much better system. Why? It does not leave corn rows in the concrete like a shot blast system. In addition, it does not create micro fissures in the concrete like shot blasting does, resulting in a much better system.
