Polishing your concrete flooring is actually one of the most budget-friendly flooring solutions currently available. Of course, there is an upfront cost, just like with any other flooring, but part of why polished concrete is such an affordable option is because it lasts longer than any other flooring. Another advantage of polished concrete is that it requires much less maintenance than many other types of flooring.
Getting polished concrete floors does vary in price depending on which process you are looking for, namely, whether you want the genuine mechanical polish (MPC)/Hiperfloor or instead, you want a grind and seal. In terms of how much polished concrete costs per square metre, there are a lot of different aspects that can affect the price. Some of the factors that will determine the cost of your floor include whether it’s a new, undamaged slab with no inner walls—in which case we can use the biggest machines—or whether it’s an existing home, in which case we’re working up to finished edges such as skirting boards and cabinetry. In existing homes, due to the finished edges, we have to use small machines plus more than standard hand grinding, so these situations are more labour intensive and time consuming.
If you are trying to determine the cost for your space, getting a quote is always best, because the actual price will depend so much on the unique requirements of your setting. If you can send us photos, or better yet, set up a site visit, that will allow us to see the concrete type and condition, the area (ie. is it a bathroom? A kitchen?), and the location itself (ie. is it an upstairs unit or external patio?) If your area is approximately 60m2 or more, it will be priced on a per square metre rate. If you have an area smaller than 60m2, then it’s generally priced on a minimum Day Rate. However, again, we recommend contacting us for a quote so we can give you a better estimate when we see what kind of work your particular space will entail. We carry out site visits throughout Melbourne and surrounding suburbs, and right through the Mornington Peninsula.
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.
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.
Thanks for our beautiful floors Tim!
We love them!!
Exactly what I pictured in my head..if not better!!
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
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 ...
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.
