Introducing: Grind & Seal

Grind and Seal is one of the most popular trends in flooring and concrete right now. It can be easily confused with polished concrete.

For those looking to refinish their exposed concrete floors, Polished Concrete and Grind and Seal concrete are both viable flooring options. But, many consumers are not aware of the differences between polished concrete and grind/sealed concrete floors. This can result in confusion when requesting the application for their concrete floor.

So what’s the difference between polished concrete and grind and seal concrete? Let’s breakdown the key differences of concrete polishing vs grinding and sealing concrete floors, including aesthetics, durability, and cost, to help make your decision for your next flooring project.

Polished Concrete Flooring vs. Grind and Seal Concrete Flooring

For comparison sake, let’s define Polished Concrete Floors again. Concrete polishing is the mechanical process of polishing the surface of an existing concrete slab using engineered floor grinders fitted with industrial diamonds. During this process, the concrete is polished until the floor reaches the desired level of shine. With polished concrete, choose from 4 levels of shine.

Levels of Polished Floor

As one would think, the process is one of grinding the concrete floor, cleaning and patching cracks and divots, and assuring the floor is free of contaminants. If not, or too porous, a second pass may be required in the grinding process.

The surface is then cleaned and stained with a wide variety of colors if so desired. The last and final phase is sealing the entire concrete floor.

Compared to a Polished Concrete Floor the Grind and Polish process is a bit simpler with fewer options, but is very cost-effective.
