We recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as you can. We like to give the Concrete will take approximately 28 days to cure before we we can like to begin grinding. The curing period is very important to develop both the strength and durability of the concrete. Also, when concrete is cured properly, it has a sufficient level of moisture to keep it from drying out, better volume stability, and increased resistance to thawing, freezing, abrasion and scaling. The curing process cannot be rushed — especially in Melbourne, with its varied weather. That is why we like to set aside 28 days to ensure the best quality for your concrete.
After the concrete has cured, there are two options: We can either then do complete the polishing all in two separate stages or all at once, or in two stages . If we do the procedure in two stages, we come in and perform the initial grind and grout, before the frame is erected. Afterwards, We put down a protective sealer after this to assist in protecting help protect the floor from staining during the rest of the build. Then, just before the plaster is put up ,we come back into and remove the coating and polish up the floor once again.
Otherwise, the option is to do it the polishing all in one hit, at one time, once the build is watertight. This is usually at the lockup stage —,i.e. when the outer walls are up and the roof is on. And, if needed, we’re happy to return and do a final buff once the rest of the build is complete.

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.
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 ...
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.
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

Exactly what I pictured in my head..if not better!!
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 ...
