Residential Flooring – polished concrete at home
Polished concrete is fast becoming a favourite flooring choice with interior designers and architects. The different styles available with polished concrete floors compliment the lifestyle settings of most homes as it can be tailored to suit all tastes and budgets. This is something that small and large builders are quickly becoming aware of, and is something many home builders are constantly being asked for, and that renovators are demanding. The concrete finishes range from a minimum stone exposure matte finish (industrial look) all the way through to the highly polished high gloss full exposure (a more decorative look) – and of course everything in between for a contemporary look.
Another fabulous feature of polished concrete is that it can allow the design to flow outdoors, giving an overall expansive feel to the area. The client has the choice of mechanically polished concrete for indoors only or a grind and seal finish which is available for indoors or outdoors, to suit the overall look of the home. For a unique touch, polished concrete looks great for bathrooms, walls, around a pool, garages, driveways etc. Furniture and bench tops made from polished concrete are vastly becoming popular as matte finishes and that raw edgy look are now a much desired décor.
Polished concrete floors can give old homes a facelift, as it can breathe new life into an older home. We can do polished concrete on the majority of floors; new or old/existing. The advantage of a new build allows you to select the colour of the cement and the stones, examples are below. However, it is best to speak to one of the friendly Grind and Seal staff early in the process, so we can provide your concreter with the required information and tips for laying the concrete foundation in order to get the best polishing results.
MELBOURNE’S HIGHEST QUALITY GARAGE FLOOR finishes AND hot tyre rated EPOXY finish
Epoxy creates a barrier to protect your concrete flooring from staining and other wear and tear. Excessive moisture can cause significant damage to a concrete floor, which can often be expensive to repair. Our Hot Tyre Rated Epoxy coating works to prevent this kind of damage, along with corrosion and stain resistance, which make it perfect for areas such as your garage floor, or any other parking areas for cars, boats, motorbikes and other vehicles. Epoxy flooring can be a great finishing touch to your garage appearance. The possibilities are endless and you can add a splash of style to your car accommodation or Mancave.
A range of coatings to protect your garage floor
There are many types of epoxy coatings – ranging from water resistant to chemical resistant. Grind and Seal’s favorite epoxy garage floor coating is a clear coating which not only protects your concrete floor from hazardous materials, meaning it will be durable enough to last for many years, but also that your garage floor will look like a polished concrete floor. When we grind the surface back to exposure the aggregate, you choose the level of stone exposure you like the most. You can choose very little stone exposure for an industrial look, a salt and pepper semi exposure, or full stone exposure, meaning your garage flooring is just as attractive as it is durable.
Concrete sealers and epoxy coatings are applied to concrete to protect it from wear, corrosion and staining. This makes the concrete coating options at Grind and Seal ideal for home garage floors, parking areas and car parks.
Our water and chemical resistant sealants are a barrier against hazardous materials affecting your flooring. This allows the coated surface to last for years with an attractive and durable finish.
Our coatings are available in a variety of colours and clear surfaces. Not only are they durable, but they look great! Contact us to make sure you get the best floor coating for your Melbourne home or business.

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
