Proper Concrete Floor Preparation Is the Key

Getting ready for a new floor may seem like a simple process. Just remove the old material that’s on the floor and add the new product. In reality, there is more to it than that. That’s why hiring Manhattan Concrete Systems makes all the difference.

All floors are not created equal, and neither are all finishes or surfaces. It takes a vast amount of knowledge and experience to ensure success in this project. As luck would have it, we have both. We take care of imperfections so that you have the show-room floor you deserve.

Floors may be pitted, chipped, or uneven. This situation requires more extensive prepping and more sophisticated craftsmanship. MCS can handle it.

Tried-and-True System

We start with a thorough examination of your existing floor. After a meticulous inspection, we meet with you to review the preparation plan. We will go over each part of the process to be sure you can ask questions and understand what to expect.

This step is an essential part of the process, and we know what we’re doing. Without excellent communication, it is hard to have success. Our clear explanations are why our clients always feel so prepared. We’ve been doing this for years and know how to do the job right.

Proper Concrete Floor Preparation

Floors may be pitted, chipped, or uneven. This situation requires more extensive prepping and more sophisticated craftsmanship. MCS can handle it.


Once we remove the excess material, sealant, or coating, we deal with the laitance. Laitance is weak concrete in unstable top layers. Our top-of-the-line diamond grinders will remove any unnecessary and troublesome layers.


Once we finish grinding, it’s time for any special applications the floor requires. This step is when we can adjust the concrete surface profile, or CSP. This phrase is just a fancy term that describes how rough the unfinished surface of the concrete is.

A smooth surface has a low profile number. A rough, bumpy surface has a higher number. To determine the correct CSP, we have to look at the type of coating or overlay. Attention to detail is critical in this step.

Moisture Sealant

Next up is the application of a moisture sealant. Using this polymer-based product will prolong the life of your floor and keep it looking great for years to come. In fact, we offer a ‘grind and seal’ option for our customers. This process makes the sealant the top-coat finish.

Safety Considerations

We know that commercial and industrial floors need to have more than just an attractive finish. Safety is a significant consideration when it comes to our preparation. We use no-slip finishes that will help keep your safety record spotless. From runway models to hotel guests, our floors keep everyone on their feet.


After the necessary scraping, grinding, and sealing, it’s time for us to polish. This process will also bring out the natural beauty of the floor. Nothing says NYC like a lustrous, shiny concrete floor.
