One of the key benefits of floor resurfacing over other concrete processes is that this type of grinding works with any granite exposure. The exposure level is the amount of the concrete’s rocks and stones that are exposed.
There are three different types of exposure involved with grind and seal concrete: zero exposure, partial exposure, and full exposure.
Zero exposure takes off only the top layer for coating. This is what you might see in a warehouse or garage. Partial exposure takes off a deeper layer from the surface of the concrete, making it consistently flat and polished. Full exposure grinds away several layers so a maximum number of stones are exposed.
A grind and seal concrete floor system make the concrete resistant to high abrasion and wear and tear. You can also add a beading or grit to enhance slip resistance.
This makes the concrete non-porous, so it won’t harbor any bacteria or stain easily. Moreover, this makes the floor low maintenance and easier to care for than other types of flooring.
The seals can be matte or glossy, which can create a unique look for the room.
Additionally, if concrete flooring is not properly finished and sealed, it will be very susceptible to penetration by moisture.
