What is Surface Prep?
Surface Prep is the process of preparing concrete surfaces for installation of coatings, overlays, stains or other finished flooring surfaces

Floors must be effectively prepped in order to clean the concrete of any topical materials (adhesive, patch, etc) and create a surface profile acceptable for the new flooring product being installed
Methods of Surface Preparation (From least to most aggressive)
