A polished concrete floor has many advantages over other types. It’s extremely attractive with its reflective surface and unique, visually textured appearance, has anti-slip and anti-static properties, is easy to clean and is extremely durable so it retains its looks for many years.
With Grind and Seal, we are proud to say that you can expect greater longevity from your floor polishing than our competitors can offer. This is because we have thorough processes, and these are all designed and executed to ensure that our floors still look the same years later.
You’ll only experience all the advantages of polished concrete in Melbourne if your floor is produced by a professional company that knows what it’s doing and truly cares about its customers. Many companies produce floors with sub-standard finishing, resulting in a job that might look great at the outset but often doesn’t last very long. That’s not the way we work at Grind and Seal because we take great pride in what we do and aim to provide a superb floor every time.
The start of every job, and the basis of its ultimate success, involves an assessment of the work and determining what’s needed. That means looking at each job in some detail because what it is, where it is and the surface we’re working on will determine the cost. This will depend on the area to be processed and its accessibility, which will dictate the size of machinery we can use or if some hand grinding and polishing is necessary.
Most important is the fact that we talk to our customers, listen to what they say and then do all we can to make sure their wishes are carried out. We pride ourselves on being easy to talk to, contactable when needed and responsive to customer requests.
Every job we undertake is different and the variety of materials and techniques we employ means each polished concrete floor can have a unique appearance. As part of that, we tailor a recipe for each floor because the consistency of the concrete will vary and there may be oil and chemical contamination that can cause problems, such as rejection or discolouration, if not dealt with properly.
We do polish cement floors and concrete floor coatings for old or new floors although we don’t lay concrete slabs ourselves. Instead we prefer to concentrate on what we know best — concrete polishing in Melbourne — but we can recommend extremely competent concreters who specialise in laying slabs intended for polishing. For existing concrete, we’ll clean and repair as needed or, if it’s in too bad a state, will let you know it’s not suitable.
Although every job varies, we adopt a standard approach that achieves output of consistent high quality concrete polishing in Melbourne. That’s ensured by using only our own experienced and knowledgeable workforce, unlike some polishers that use sub-contractors of dubious quality.
Depending on the visual texture required in a polished floor, the depth of grinding will vary to expose the appropriate level of aggregate. We use only the highest quality machinery, including high grade dust extractors that eliminate health hazards for our staff and customers.
At the end of the process, you’ll have a floor that looks great and is durable, practical and easy to maintain. It will require only periodic sweeping and mopping with warm water and pH-neutral or balanced cleaning products. We’ll even provide free after-care cleaning materials to get you started and a professional photographic package, which is something you will not find from our competitors.
If you want to have a floor polishing, concrete sealing or concrete grinding services in Melbourne, you’ll be proud of for years to come. To that end, we deliver it in a stress-free manner and ensure that, unlike some other contractors’ work, it doesn’t need replacing in a few years’ time.
By having your concrete floor polished, you can give it a whole new look and transform the character of your home. With interior polished concrete, you can have a cement floor finishing that is durable and will still look fantastic for many years to come. On top of this, it is low maintenance and extremely easy to keep clean, which will be music to the ears of those with busy households. Imagine no grout, indentations or other difficult areas to keep clean.
Floor polishing is also a great choice because concrete has natural insulation properties and high thermal mass, so it can help to bring your energy bills down. This also makes it suitable for commercial businesses looking to have their floor polished. With a polished floor from Grind and Seal, your space is sure to impress your customers.
Concrete isn’t just about boring foundation slabs anymore. With growing technology and knowledge, we can create all kinds of designs to suit your home. People often opt for polished concrete floors as a marble or granite lookalike to bring give their house a contemporary look. It also absorbs and retains heat well and stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter so there is no discomfort whatever the weather. This means it’s a great flooring option, especially when combined with underfloor heating.
Because concrete floor is durable and long-lasting, it can even bring the price of your house up when you come to sell it. Potential buyers like to know that they won’t have to pay out a lot of money to have things fixed or refitted, so they’re happier to pay more if they know it’s going to last. Just like with a new kitchen or bathroom would, having durable flooring which won’t need replacing for very many years to come is a huge selling point. If you use a pH balanced cleaner, and refrain from using cleaners such as bleach or citric acids, your concrete floor will last for decades, simply having a refresh buff when some areas lose a bit of shine due to years of foot traffic. Imagine having the original concrete floor still looking good in 50 years?
You often find concrete flooring in warehouses, but then find when you come to clean it that clouds of dust swirl up. This is because it is ‘dusting’, which means fine dust is continually forming off the surface of the plain concrete and leaving a fine film over everything. This builds up on a daily basis and can be quite heavy.
A simple and economical industrial/commercial Polished concrete process can fix that problem as it hardens the concrete itself, and totally seals the concrete yet no sealer is left on the surface, the sealer is formulated to penetrate the concrete up to 20mm. All dust is only from the environment, extremely easy to just sweep into piles, or even just mop up. This means that it’s not only great for warehouses, but other aspects of your business too. Especially as it can be poured in different colours and patterns brought out by the grinding and polishing process.

Our idea to have a “garden party” theme for Christmas last year sounded great but our old mouldy concrete was an eyesore! Within 2 days the grind and seal team transformed our very drab rear and front yard into magnificent useable entertaining areas with minimal disruption to our lives. We have now decided on polished concrete for our extension to merge the indoor/outdoor living areas. The Grind and Seal Polished Concrete team worked hard to deliver a great result, they provided a quality product in a timely fashion, they are honest & reliable – a refreshing change in this day ...

Grind and Seal did a terrific job at our property, we knew in advance of building our new home that we were going to have polished concrete downstairs, therefore we contacted Grind and Seal to speak to them about our job and they liaised with our builder/concretor to ensure that we had a concrete slab with the perfect specifications for what were after!When it came time to complete the work the guys were punctual, friendly and very professional. The place looks fantastic and they were only too happy to appease my wife's needs to inspect the job at every step ...
Anyone who hasn't seen polished concrete before should definitely try it! It looks amazing and is so easy to clean - I totally love it. I got Grind And Seal to come and do my home and they were awesome - lovely guys and were really good at explaining stuff to me. Price was really reasonable and now all my friends are jealous of my floors! - Thanks Grind & Seal I will be recommending you to everyone although my floor really speaks for itself.
JAMES, facilities maintenance PROJECT MANAGER for 5 councils Honestly I've never felt as compelled to give positive feedback as I have with this company's services and I deal with hundreds of companies a year in the course of my work, it has been a refreshing experience.
We got Grind & Seal to do the polished concrete in our home. They were incredibly professional and friendly to deal with during the process and the floor looks amazing – they were not the cheapest, but I think you get what you pay for – and we got top quality for a competitive price. Will definitely be recommending their services.
Good service, Happy to recommend Grind & Seal. Our floors look a million bucks and came up just so well. Was a difficult job but their experience really showed and they got around all hurdles. We were so impressed. And as our cheapest quote by far we were happy that we got such a good job. Nice team and made the whole process so very easy.
We first used Grind and Seal at our Braeside premises in May 2018 to prepare our concrete floor into a beautiful shiny area for some vintage cars. The area was approximately 230 square metres and the finish was even better than we had expected. Therefore when it came to expanding the area by another 123 square metres in 2019 we had no hesitation in heading straight back to Grind and Seal. Once again Jay weaved his magic ably assisted by Tom to produce another impeccable finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending Grind and Seal to any potential customer. Thank you to everyone at Grind and Seal.
Thanks for our beautiful floors Tim!
We love them!!
Exactly what I pictured in my head..if not better!!
