Professional Concrete Services
Residential Grinding & Polishing
Expose Enhance Beautify – just below your concrete surface is a hidden visual treasure waiting to be exposed and brought out into the light. With high quality concrete grinding and polishing the natural (intrinsic) or inherent beauty already in the concrete can be brought to life. Every polished concrete surface is totally unique which adds class, style and prestige to any home. You can transform a practical concrete floor slab into a superb looking high-class visual setting. Not just beautiful and aesthetically pleasing but providing a host of other benefits too.

- Hard and extremely durable surface
- Smooth, low-maintenance, easy to clean floor
- Healthier environment, ideal for allergy sufferers

Commercial Grinding & Polishing
Polished concrete is the preferred option for many businesses that require a great looking floor durable enough to stand up to a high degree of foot traffic. Minimal maintenance and ease of cleaning is a major benefit of commercially polished concrete. Commercial establishments such as warehouses can have a higher demand in regards to durability and performance when it comes to their floors. Grinding and polishing concrete floors can produce a durable floor that will withstand the daily rigours and handle more abuse than most other flooring materials. For many commercial settings a polished concrete floor will provide a brighter more reflective and inviting indoor environment.
- Visually attractive floor options
- Minimal long term costs
- Minimal ongoing maintenance
- Fast and easy to clean up spills
- Tough and highly durable
- Abrasion resistance
Commercial & Industrial Grinding
Many Commercial & Industrial properties may require ongoing maintenance and replacement of their floor coverings due to high wear factors. Without adequate equipment removing old glue residue, floor coatings and adhesives become a very time consuming task. When fitted with the correct diamond tipped attachments our professional grinding machines are capable of effectively removing all types of old Industrial floor coatings, glues, resins, sealers, tile adhesives and more. If required we can then apply filling or levelling compounds to create an ideal surface to accept new floor coverings.

- Experience and knowledge of all types of substrates to save costs for the client
- Understanding the methods to produce the required results
- Understanding how to work in challenging environments

With the latest Bush Hammering methods and techniques we can create an anti-slip surface that is both aesthetically pleasing and long lasting. Bush Hammering is not a surface coating, it is a method of grinding concrete in such a way to create a textured finish into the top of the concrete itself. This can be achieved with specialised grinding attachments that can be fitted onto our commercial grinding equipment.
Textured concrete options for new or existing surfaces
Bush Hammering allows us to provide a textured finish to suit many different types of situations and environments.
It’s a practical option for new and old concrete i.e. driveways, walkways, stairways, decks, pool surrounds you name it… Bush Hammering has become the most outstanding alternative to exposed aggregate concrete on the market today. Both can provide a nice smooth wet appearance but the advantage of Bush Hammering is it provides a more slip resistant finish. A good quality sealer is always recommended to help protect the concrete and provide a longer lasting finish.
Regardless of how large the area is you can create a textured finish into the top layer of your concrete. (Providing the concrete is in reasonable condition) Fine, Medium and Coarse options are achievable by Bush Hammering. Is your concrete too smooth and slippery? Get it Bush Hammered.
Residential and Commercial Advantages
Bush Hammering is not only an ideal option to create non-slip concrete finishes but is a valuable option to those needing a superior bond for flooring materials such as carpets, tiles, leveling compounds, high build coatings etc. Bush Hammering also provides more options for removing old concrete overlays, toppings, grouts, mortars and difficult adhesives. Give us a call and see if Bush Hammering is a good option for you.
What is Bush Hammering?
Bush Hammering consists of a series of small spiked rollers that when attached to our grinding equipment removes tiny particles off the top of the concrete which then develops into a roughened textured surface. These rollers repeatedly strike and impact the surface to create a suitable texture in both stone or concrete surfaces and will create a tough, weathered textured appearance. Unique natural stone variations will be exposed and enhanced as material is removed from the surface.
