Concrete PolishingAnchor

Rapidly becoming the favorite for finishing Industrial and Manufacturing concrete floors, we can give your floors a highly reflective and attractive appearance, while lowering the maintenance on the floors.

Grinding and polishing a concrete floor is a time consuming, labor intensive and physically aggressive process, but our floor polishers will leave your jobsite knowing that you are pleased with the marble-like appearance of your concrete floor.

Coated floors are known for their chemical resistance, their wear durability, and their beauty. Concrete floor coatings are ideal for:

  • Industrial facilities

  • Rest rooms and shower stalls

Blackwell’s Inc. can protect your concrete with chemical and abrasion resistant coatings that will beautify and extend the life of the concrete.

  • Poor construction

We can breathe new life into your old concrete.

We can clean in tight places, with precision, and with no chemicals. And because it is dry ice, there is no residue or secondary waste to remove.
