Our team uses a variety of techniques to prepare concrete surfaces. Shot blasting provides high production rates and is a dust-free, dry, and cost effective approve to a proper surface profile. Dustless Diamond Grinding removes epoxies, paints, glues and mastics while preparing the concrete surface for Epoxy Coating Systems, Wood Flooring, Carpet and Tile.
Proper concrete surface preparation is the most important phase in any of our projects. Our experts will determine the specific prep method that meets your needs and produces the best results.
Shot blasting strips provide a simple, cost-effective, and efficient way to remove contaminants from concrete, which will increase its quality. The process creates an ideal surface to bond with, which can lead to increased production rates as well! This process can be done without any dust or material loss because it uses shotblasts instead of sanding away at the surface with rough grits that could potentially damage nearby machinery if not handled properly.
Dustless diamond grinding uses grit sanding pads of various sizes that are attached to a specialized grinding machine. Multiple counter-rotating blades pass over the concrete flooring at a rate slower than shot blasting to provide a more refined preparation process. A vacuum system is connected to the grinder to keep the work environment dust free. Diamond grinding can be used on interior and exterior floors.
Dustless diamond grinding is the perfect solution for removing epoxies and urethanes from concrete surfaces. The process leaves a varied profile, which means you have an ideal surface for whatever application is selected.
Scarifying concrete is a process that uses spinning metal blades on a machine to chip away at the top layer of a concrete surface, removing coatings and creating a level space. Scarifying and shaving removes thick film coatings and adhesives from previous flooring to level out uneven floors.
Proper concrete surface preparation is key! Our experienced skilled team is the best in the industry. We use state of the art machinery to demo, grind, scarify, remove, shot-blast and prep concrete flooring specific to your projects requirements.

When it comes to prepping a concrete surface for resurfacing, there are two main methods: diamond grinding and shot blasting. So, which one should you use? It depends on the condition of the concrete and the desired finish. Diamond grinding is a mechanical process that uses diamond-tipped blades to grind down the surface of the concrete. This method is typically used to remove imperfections or to prepare the surface for a new coat of paint or sealant. Shot blasting, on the other hand, uses high-pressure streams of sand or other abrasive materials to strip away the top layer of concrete. This method is generally used to remove old paint or sealant, or to prepare the surface for a new coating. If you're not sure which method to use, consult with a professional contractor who can assess the condition of your concrete and recommend the best course of action.
