Black Bear Coatings & Concrete understands that proper floor restoration means more than just superficially correcting a few blemishes or covering up structural issues. The first stage of any restoration project is preparing the surface. Creating the proper surface for adhesion ensures that chemical and mechanical bonds are strong.

There are a variety of techniques that our experts use to prepare concrete surfaces. Shot blasting strips thin coatings and removes contamination and laitance (soft concrete) to reveal a mechanical profile for improved bonding. Shot blasting provides high production rates and is dust-free, dry, and cost-effective. Dustless diamond grinding removes epoxies and urethanes and leaves a varied profile that is ideal for all applications. Scarifying uses metal or carbide disks that rotate at high speeds. This technique removes adhesives and thick film coatings, while leveling uneven floors and edges of concrete.

Proper concrete surface preparation is the most important phase in any project. Black Bear Coatings & Concrete performs all its own preparation for projects in-house. Our team is so skilled at this work that many times, we are called in to help others!
