Coating Removals

Auckland Concrete Grinding has developed a reputation as the leading company for the removal of surface toppings and coatings, including old glue, plaster, ceramic, adhesive, paint and floor levelling materials. Our largest market is in construction refurbishment.

Many buildings in Auckland and all over New Zealand are in the overhaul stage, and in many cases flooring is being replaced or renewed. This requires returning the existing surface back to clean concrete before new products are installed.

Auckland Concrete Grinding has developed a different diamond disc for nearly every coating and adhesive found on New Zealand floors. Our customised removal solutions are reflected in the affordability and speed we can offer the client.

Rain Damage

Rain-damaged concrete is an unstable substrate surface which can cause many problems if left untreated. This type of surface can cause delimitation on tilt-wall construction and create continuous dust problems and adhesive failures to carpet and vinyl installation.

Grinding the damaged sectors with the correct grade diamond disc will remove the puffy surface sealants, revealing a firm smooth surface. This process provides security for tilt-wall construction, a sound surface for carpet and vinyl installation, and an overall better floor appearance.

Uneven Concrete Surfaces

Concrete installation can be a ‘sudden death Russian roulette’ game for the unprepared business owner or homeowner. There isn’t often a second chance to correct those little errors such as one slab being just a little bit higher, or lower, than the previous one. Humps and bumps can also be found on the concrete surface when it comes to installing your carpet, tiles or wooden flooring.

Diamond grinding can, in most instances, blend away these little level imperfections, making it easier for future construction and flooring installation. Our process is predominantly dry-vacuumed with minimal dust and no messy sludge to contend with.

Please note: the greater the depth required, the greater the time and cost. Also, there is a limit to what can be blended away.

Doorway Rebate Grinding/Sloping

Many factory and warehousing goods and service doorways are produced with a weather rebate to stop rain or floodwater entering the working areas. These rebates normally measure 25-50mm in height, and the doorway links into the front side of the section for added security.

The rebate system works well for weather security but can cause problems for forklifts, trucks and wheeled trolley traffic when crossing the sudden lip.

We can diamond-grind away the lip of the rebate to produce a wedged or sloped ramp, which allows smooth untroubled passage through the doorway.

Please note: the sloped rebate will still provide secure weather proofing.

Frequent Concrete Grinding Questions


How long does the concrete grinding process take?

The duration of the concrete grinding process depends on various factors such as the size of the area, the extent of the work needed, and the condition of the concrete. Generally, smaller projects can be completed in a day or two, while larger areas may take longer. Our team will assess your specific requirements and provide you with a timeline for the completion of the project.


Will concrete grinding disrupt my business operations?

Concrete grinding can generate some noise and dust, but our team takes measures to minimize disruptions to your business operations. We can schedule the work during off-peak hours or times when your business is closed to minimize the impact on your operations. Additionally, we use advanced equipment and techniques to contain dust and ensure a cleaner work environment.


Can concrete grinding fix cracks and uneven surfaces?

Yes, concrete grinding is an effective solution for addressing cracks and uneven surfaces in concrete. The grinding process removes the top layer of the concrete, which can eliminate minor imperfections and create a smoother, more even surface. For larger cracks or damage, additional repairs may be needed before or after the grinding process. Our team can assess the condition of your concrete and recommend the best course of action to address any issues.


Is concrete grinding cost-effective compared to other solutions?

Concrete grinding is often more cost-effective than other solutions such as concrete replacement. Grinding can restore the surface of your concrete, eliminating the need for costly removal and replacement. Additionally, concrete grinding is a faster process, which can reduce labor costs and minimize downtime for your business.


Can concrete grinding be done in specific areas, like warehouses or parking lots?

Yes, concrete grinding can be done in a variety of commercial spaces, including warehouses, parking lots, and industrial facilities. The process is highly versatile and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your space. Whether you need to improve the safety and durability of your warehouse floor or enhance the appearance of your parking lot, concrete grinding can be a suitable solution.


Do I need to prepare the area before concrete grinding?

Yes, it is important to prepare the area before concrete grinding to ensure the best results. This may include removing any furniture or obstacles from the area, as well as cleaning the surface to remove dirt and debris. Additionally, if there are any existing coatings or sealants on the concrete, these may need to be removed before grinding can begin. Our team will assess your specific requirements and provide you with detailed instructions for preparing the area before the grinding process begins.
