External Concrete Finishes
external concrete finishes
non-slip and uv stable polished concrete for outdoor areas throughout melbourne.
If your project has a driveway, porch, patio or any outdoor area, this is the finish to use. An attractive finish, with good non-slip ratings even in wet weather, the Honed concrete finish begins by grinding the surface until the desired level of stone exposure is reached. After treating the opened surface with applicable products for that particular concrete, it is then sealed with penetrative sealer. This finish is easy to clean, safe, and attractive and very long lasting with very little maintenance for years.
Being the outdoor equivalent of the internal MPC/Hiperfloor finish, most clients choose this ‘sister’ finish to compliment the aesthetic flow of their entire home or commercial space, giving an indoor-outdoor cohesive theme.
There is also a topical coating system we can use for outdoors which has a non-slip grit added to the top coat of the sealer to minimise slips. This type of external coating system is generally used where slip ratings are required to be extremely high, such as in industrial settings, as the grit can make normal cleaning methods such as mopping quite difficult, so we would usually recommend the Honed external finish over the external grind and seal with grit.

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. March 2019
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.
Grind and Seal did a terrfific 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 ...
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 ...
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.
The tradesman were very professional. Polite and respectful. My front porch looks fantastic and I keep admiring it. Never to be painted again.I would recommend them to anyone and the guys even painted between my wooden fence posts.Thank you Grind and Seal
