GRINDING & POLISHING

Ace/Avant's Specialty Division is ASCC and CPC certified and offers a wide range of polishing methods and products to best suit your specific project.

Power Trowel Polish

Ace/Avant now offers a Power Trowel polish which achieves the same results as a traditional polish.  Up to 20,000 SF can be polished in a single day saving costs. This method is best suited for new or existing buildings over 100K SF with open areas.

Troika Polish

Ace/Avant also offers a Troika polish which is a 3 head attachment that attaches to a skid steer.  Up to 10,000 SF can be polished in a single day saving costs.  This method is best suited for new or existing buildings over 20K SF with open areas.

Walk-Behind Polish

In some instances, walk-behind polishers are the only option. We offer both wet and dry grinding as well as electric or propane with these machines. These are best suited for office/retail buildings and upfit projects.

Benefits of Polished Concrete

Retailers, schools, car dealers, offices, restaurants, manufacturing plants, and warehouse facilities are choosing polished concrete as a finished flooring because of its competitive advantages, as well as its aesthetic values. Some of the benefits of polished concrete are:

Cost Savings

Traditional floor-covering materials are eliminated when the existing concrete slab is polished.

Light Reflectivity Properties

Building owners, architects, and designers select polished concrete as it decreases the need for interior lighting, as well as projects a clean, professional image.

Extremely Low Life-Cycle Cost

Annual maintenance costs and life cycle costs are typically a fraction of traditional floorcoverings or epoxy resinous floor coatings.

Less Affected by Moisture Vapor Transmission Problems

A polished concrete floor will allow concrete slab moisture to transmit and “breathe”. Virtually all other floor coverings, flooring adhesives, and resinous floor coatings are extremely sensitive and have strict moisture limitations.

JOINT FILLING/REPAIR

Virtually all interior floor slabs have saw-cut control and construction joints. Over time, heavy point loads from material handling equipment, i.e. forklifts and pallet jacks will break the edges of these joints, causing them to spall out and worsen over time. A floor joint that has been properly cleaned, prepared, and filled with a joint filler will minimize or eliminate this damage.

Ace Avant’s Specialty Division installs over 500,000 linear feet of interior slab joint fillers annually. We are a multi-manufacturer approved applicator, have state of the art dual component, joint filling pumps, as well as gas, propane, & electric powered clean out saws and vacuums that are used to properly prepare these floor joints.

NEW JOINT FILLING/SEALING:

  • Interior concrete saw cuts, construction and expansion joints

  • Exterior concrete saw cuts, construction and expansion joints

  • Concrete Tilt Wall/Precast panel joints

Are bad floor joints hurting your employee’s productivity, damaging product and material handling equipment, and cutting into your bottom line? Are bad floor joints hurting your employee's back?

Ace Avant specializes in repair and stabilization of industrial floors and floor joints. Almost all commercial and industrial concrete floors and floor joints require ongoing maintenance.

CONCRETE REPAIR

While an extremely durable and strong structure, concrete is not immune to the elements. Concrete is a very porous structure, and if left unprotected, it will deteriorate over time.

Whether it is restoring and strengthening a parking structure, repairing a warehouse slab, or replacing a mezzanine deck, Ace Avant’s specialty crews have the necessary experience and training to ensure a successful repair.
