Decorative Polished Concrete

From bland to beautiful.

Who would have thought that concrete in its natural or tailored form would have so many unseen colours, variances and textures? Like a gemstone submerged in water to reveal depths of colour, so concrete has a life of its own when treated by Christchurch Concrete Grinding.

Ideal for home, hospitality, retail or office, decorative polished concrete is the way of the future. Adding instant glamour and a contemporary style, the versatility of decorative concrete means there is a design for any purpose.

For new concrete installations, the addition of aggregate or cut glass gives a whole new decorative dimension. For existing areas, deep grinding reveals aggregates already in existence. Your floor can then be coloured to tone with your décor and furnishings.

Not only aesthetically pleasing, your decorative polished concrete floor is also hard wearing and easy to clean and maintain. Cost efficiencies are plenty due to the long-term durability, and the timeless elegance of your floor will see you through to the next century.

Glue and Paint removal

Be gone glue!

When you think about any surface that is about to be treated, it makes sense to have that surface as clean and smooth as possible. It’s all part of the prep work that must be done (no matter how laborious that thought may be) to ensure the ease and effectiveness of the next step.

It’s the same with your polished concrete floor. Darrel from Christchurch Concrete Grinding stands by his commitment to provide the concrete floor of your dreams – but it comes with conditions.

Those conditions include optimising the receptivity of your floor for grinding and honing. And that means removing carpet or tile glue and paint, creating a bare-faced, spotless surface, conducive to further treatment.

Darrel’s happy to do the toil for you because he’s a professional and would not begin work on a surface anything less than pristine.  Darrel’s got the gear and the guts to get stuck in and clean your floor.

Your floor will work and wear beautifully.

Tile and Vinyl Uplifting

The 3 P’s: prep, prep, prep.

We sound like a stuck vinyl record when we keep harping on about floor preparation.

There’s a saying: ‘By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail’ … well, all clichés come with a history based on reality and this is certainly the case when creating a polished concrete masterpiece.

Before work can even begin on your floor, Christchurch Concrete Grinding sets the scene for success. When the existing floor has had a covering system of tiles, carpet or vinyl it can be challenging to uplift and remove the covering and left-over remnants.

Darrel is an expert in this procedure – preparation is an integral part of the service and one he is particularly fussy about. He uses high-tech solutions and equipment and then removes any glue residues via grinding.

The result: a clean, blemish-free surface ready and waiting for the next step.

Christchurch Concrete Grinding want to give you the floor of a lifetime; one that is durable, glossy and simply sensational … you need to look no further than to us to find the floor you’ll love.

  • Tile removal
  • Surface preparation.

The beauty of your floor will quite possibly ‘floor’ you!

Concrete Grinding

Putting systems in place.

Like any successful makeover, your concrete needs a lot of TLC (and elbow grease) before the polishing process can begin. Christchurch Concrete Grinding are experts in preparing your floor to get it in top shape, and this stage is called grinding.

Grinding your floor using our state-of-the-art machinery is vital to smooth out humps and bumps and create an even surface which then is in peak condition to undergo the next step.

Grinding literally means using a grit abrasive to ‘exfoliate’ the surface of your floor. It’s a bit like sandpapering, but on a much heavier scale. As a craftsman, Darrel uses high tech diamond tooling to level and refine the surface. The coarseness of the grit he utilises is dependent on the existing condition of the floor as well as the concrete mix itself.

He’ll talk to you about how much aggregate pattern you wish to see from your polished floor, even retaining and highlighting existing imperfections (increasingly popular to allow personality or character to shine through).

It’s a complicated process but one which lays the foundations for the ultimate success of the final look. You can trust Christchurch Concrete Grinding to perform this bottom-line job to create perfect floor preparation.

Concrete Polishing and Sealing

All honed and ready to go.

A beautiful polished concrete floor is only as good as its maker. The initial stages of laying the concrete for a new installation then grinding the old or the new are paramount for the success of the next steps: sealing and coating.

The polishing process

Christchurch Concrete Grinding are passionate about the importance of this process. Incorrect application of sealer can allow moisture to penetrate, ruining the look and functionality of your potentially gorgeous floor and costing you untold in repairs.

Sealing your newly grinded floor protects it from corrosion, creates a barrier against moisture, and prevents surface damage and staining.

Coating it allows the textures, patterns and character of your concrete floor to come through, as well as providing additional density and durability.

The polishing process moves up through grits to literally polish the concrete surface, products are then used to harden, dustproof, and densify the surface. We then apply a micro topical stain resister that will ensure the floor is sealed, dustproof, scratch resistant and durable.

If you can liken unsealed concrete to a sponge you will understand the importance of expert sealing and coating. Ask Darrel for advice. He is happy to explain the products he uses and the effectiveness of his processes.

Epoxy Coatings

Suitable for painted and coated floors, an epoxy coated floor is ideal for garages, workshops, factories, restaurants, offices, Gymnasiums, commercial and industrial buildings to name a few.

But before your floor can benefit from an epoxy coating it needs to be expertly ground and honed to create a surface the coating can bond to. Adhesion to the concrete really determines the life of the floor coating so you want this process to be 100% correct.

Once this is completed by Christchurch Concrete Grinding, Darrel will coat your floor to really add the wow factor. Our high-quality epoxy resin coatings supply protection from wear and tear. They reflect light which increases visibility for you, and cleaning becomes a breeze.
