Mechanical concrete polishing ranges in price from $75 to $110 per square metre, depending on the level of aggregate (stone) exposure, level of gloss and how much repair work is required.
Grind and seal ranges from $60-$85 per square metre depending on the level of aggregate exposure and type of sealants used in the process.
The tiles will first have to be removed before concrete polishing or grind and seal can commence as this process is performed on the slab and it not an overlay. When working on concrete slabs that have previously had tiles, it's important to understand that there is a risk that the outline of the previous tiles will be visible in the polished concrete due to years of cleaning agents penetrating through the grout and into the concrete.
Most domestic works, such as large garages or downstairs living areas will take from 3-5 days.
For your larger commercial projects, we bring multiple industrial grade concrete grinders to speed up the process - please allow 1 day per 40 square metres.
For Grind and Seal or Epoxy Flooring, you will need to give it 24 hours minimum before you can have foot traffic on your new floor.
Mechanically polished concrete floors can be walked on immediately afterwards, however it's important not to expose them to excess water for 72 hours.
For kitchens and spaces that require food grade level cleanliness we recommend a durable epoxy coating with non-slip added to it. These are the industry standard and can survive most industrial kitchen, bakery and food storage foot traffic and equipment weight.
