FAQ for grinding

Cost:  Our minimum charge is $200, which is equal to 1˝ hours of grinding.  Grinding time will vary depending on the type of concrete and the amount of material that is to be removed.

Cleanup:  Grinding is messy.  We will do our best to minimize this, but you will want to hang plastic to contain the over spray.  We use water to eliminate dust, and our operator will vacuum up the slurry when he is finished cutting.
