The Process

This shot blasting helps to remove contaminants and also provides the idea surface for the coating to stick to. This process is crucial to having a well-done, seamless, and durable coating. 

Additionally, the reconstruction part of concrete repairs includes cracks, pits, and spalling – each of which require a different type of fix. Once the fixes have been made, the surfaces are grinded to ensure the best adhesion possible. 

If you don’t get this step done properly, it means that the coating isn’t going to adhere as well. That, in turn, means you won’t get that durable coating you desire. In other words, it’s a vital step to a beautiful and proper floor coating.

Finally, a clear coat finishes the project. When these steps are done, you are left with a stunning new floor.
