Approximate the potential cost . You’ve probably seen different sources with different quotes on the costs of concrete grinding. For instance, one reliable source recently mentioned that you could have your concrete floor ground for as little as $2 per square foot which translates to about $21.5 per square metre.
“Diamond grinding involves removing a thin layer (4-6 mm) at the surface of hardened cement concrete by using closely spaced diamond saw blades. The blade assembly cuts tiny grooves in the pavement surface, providing texture as it smooths down surface irregularities,” as described by the Grooving and Grinding Association.
The IGGA is the leading technica/promotional resource for acceptance and proper use of diamond grinding and grooving and pavement preservation/restoration.
Heavy-duty grinders are utilized for the surface preparation of concrete floors prior to the application of new coatings. They are also ideal for grinding, honing, and polishing concrete, terrazzo and stone surfaces. Each unit is equipped with a water system and tank for wet grinding and should be used in conjunction with a dust collector vacuum.
