Floor Preparation

New Floors: grind the floor and finish with 100-120 grit diamonds which would make the concrete nice and smooth. Then vacuum the area so it is dust free, then to ensure that the concrete is dust free either a wet tacky mop or a wet towel to pick up the dust that the vacuum did not pick up. Let the floor dry then apply a couple of coats to Tuff Coat for Concrete. (Depending on the porosity of the concrete floor you will ascertain the amount of coats that you need).

Recoating an existing Floor: Depending on the concrete and what has been previously on it you will either need to grind the floor or sand it. However, due to the nature of concrete it is always best to grind the floor. Once you have ground the floor to the smoothness that you desire you then vacuum and mop the floor lifting all the dust making the concrete both smooth and free from all possible rejections. You then apply a couple of coats of Tuff Coat for Concrete.
