What Is a Concrete Grind and Clear?
Concrete grind and clear system is the process of restoring and enhancing the look of a concrete surface. It requires an industrial, abrasive tool with a diamond attachment to smooth the concrete. The top layer of concrete—along with any stains or cracks—are removed in the grinding process. Then, we add a clear, polyaspartic layer to the top, completing the process.
Similar to concrete polishing, concrete grind and clear system polishes the surface for the first step in the process. But, concrete polishing is one smoothing process throughout, whereas a concrete grind and clear stops about halfway through smoothing to then add the polyaspartic coating. This seal not only makes the concrete shine, but also reinforces its strength.

Benefits of Professional Concrete Floor Grinding and Clear Services
A concrete grind and clear service can take any old, ugly, and decrepit concrete floor and turn it into a thing of beauty. It’s quickly becoming a more and more popular option for home and business owners to revitalize their property’s look, feel, and functionality. Here are just some of the countless benefits that come with a professional concrete grind and clear service:
When we grind your concrete’s top layer down and then add a polyaspartic coating back to its original layer and luster, you’ll instantly notice an improved look. Concrete floors can pick up a lot of bumps, dents, and flaws over time, and grinding them down is a way to improve their appearance. All that’ll be left is a flooring surface you love.
Because concrete is porous, it can let dirt, water, and other debris penetrate the surface and inevitably erode it. To re-strengthen your floor, you need a process like a concrete grind and clear system, because it brings your concrete floor back to its original strength. So, as a result, it can stand up better against abrasions and heavy object impact.
A concrete surface that has grease spots, excessive dirt, uneven cracks, and more becomes a hazard for slips and falls. Our concrete grind and clear process revitalizes the surface to eliminate any stains, dirt, and cracks so you have a slip-resistant, long-lasting, and safe surface for pedestrians and vehicles.
Not only do you want a floor that can withstand abnormal abrasions (like furniture shuffling around or heavy objects falling onto it), but you need a floor that’s built for everyday wear and tear. This includes the consistent foot and vehicle traffic that any industrial property experiences. Concrete grind and clear system removes any inconsistencies that might undermine your floor’s lifespan.
Arguably the greatest benefit of a concrete grind and clear is that it’s the most cost-effective solution to revitalizing an existing concrete floor. As opposed to removing the floor entirely, concrete grind and clear system is quick and painless.

Our polyurea floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid color floors, flake floors, and grind and clear floors.
Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. Revival Concrete uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.
Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes. We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind.
If using 100% solid polyurea, your floor will be cured and walkable in 12 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after 24-36 hours depending on the temperature the floor was installed in.
We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.
We spend approximately 33% of the project prepping your floor by diamond grinding with our 800 lb Lavina Grinder! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.
If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating.
No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.
Sweeping takes care of most messes. If there is mud or chemicals you can mop them with any household soap and warm water. Dawn or SimpleGreen work great! If chemicals are spilled on the floor, wipe them up as soon as you notice them.
Floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Although our coatings are chemical resistant, you will still need to wipe up any chemical spills as soon as you notice them.
Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.
Residential floors come with a 15 year warranty and commercial floors have a 5 year warranty.
Our clients are our most important asset.
This is what they say about us.
