Restore Your Concrete with Concrete Grinding
Are your concrete surfaces starting to show signs of aging and need a quick makeover? Concrete grinding is a great way to quickly restore your concrete surfaces without worrying about a complete replacement.
Years of wear and tear can cause concrete surfaces to show certain unsightly signs of aging and potentially decrease your home’s value. If you notice signs of aging on any of your concrete surfaces, contact LRE Foundation Repair to restore them to look fresh and new.
Why Should I Consider Concrete Grinding?
Your home’s concrete surfaces take up a lot of space, and if they have stains or other cosmetic issues, it can potentially ruin the entire look of your home. If you notice any of the following signs on your concrete surfaces, it might be a good idea to consider concrete grinding:
- Pitting or flaking
- Chipped sealant
- Uneven surfaces
Concrete grinding is a quick and easy way to remove old stains or minor uneven surfaces. Grinding it down can give your concrete that brand-new look without a complete replacement.
Depending on your concrete’s condition, the depth of grinding will vary. Most surfaces are grinded down between 1/16 in. and 1/4 in. Sometimes a quick grind will repair the problem and other times it may require grinding further down.
Our concrete experts will determine the proper depth and will use the proper grit on our concrete grinders to reach the desired depth.
Concrete Grinding vs. Concrete Replacement
Certain concrete damage cannot be fixed by simply grinding it down and it may need a complete replacement instead. Concrete damage can come in many different forms and it can be difficult to know when a simple repair can fix the problem or if it needs a complete replacement.
LRE Foundation Repair can happily provide a free inspection and recommend the best course of action to fix your damaged concrete.
When to Consider Concrete Grinding
Concrete grinding is primarily used for cosmetic purposes or minor surface retouches. The grinding quickly removes the top layer of the old concrete surface and gets rid of any surface damages.
These surface damages include minor fixes like stains, removing old sealants, flaking, or smoothing rough surfaces. If you’re experiencing any of these issues with your concrete, concrete grinding may be a simple fix to make it look new again.
When to Consider Concrete Replacement
If your concrete is showing more serious signs of damage, it may need a complete replacement and may not be something that concrete grinding can fix.
Bigger signs of damage include sunken concrete, large cracks, or any large holes or pits. While concrete grinding can fix surface issues, these symptoms are much bigger problems and may require a complete concrete replacement.
Apply Concrete Sealant
After your concrete is grinded, you’ll want to protect it from future damage to keep it looking fresh and new. Otherwise, the same problem may happen in the future and you may have to grind it all over again.
Applying concrete sealant can save your concrete from future corrosion, staining, and other surface damage. Sealant also protects your concrete surface from moisture, which is often the cause for surface damage.
