Concrete Stripping
Waco, Texas Area


FloorDoctor | Concrete Stripping for Industrial, Commercial, & Residential Construction

Decorative concrete is a popular and durable building material, often used for flooring, stairs, edging, and other surfaces. Over time, even concrete can become dull, chipped, or cracked by the weather, severe damage, or simply from heavy daily use. Concrete flooring is versatile and can be updated as styles and preferences change.

If it’s been so long since you’ve had your concrete inspected, repaired, or refreshed, concrete stripping may be the solution to putting new life into your dwelling. The elite diamond polishing process from FloorDoctor can restore and transform any indoor or outdoor concrete in your home, business, or garage.

Need a concrete strip and refinish? We do that too.

When you want to refresh your damaged or worn concrete, you can simply grind away the surface wear and reseal it without making changes. On the other hand, you can have our concrete contractors strip and refinish your concrete surface with new concrete. Our team delivers proper remediation with a longer lifespan of colored stain, textured, or stamped concrete.

Most homeowners question how to remove an acrylic concrete sealer. It also depends on a few factors, including the sealer used. A water-based sealer can be removed using chemical etching, pressure washing, or mechanical cutting.

If the previous floor coating is solvent-based and you now want a water-based sealant, we can remove the solvent-based one using the proper coating stripper first because the water-based sealant will not be able to stick to the solvent-based sealant.

FloorDoctor provides full concrete stripping and refinishing services.

Need to fix a problem caused by DIY or less professional work? Contact us.

We refinish stripped concrete, even if someone else started the work.

Stripping concrete is a job that professional concrete contractors should do. When an amateur tries to strip and refinish old floor coating, they can make severe mistakes that can weaken the structural integrity of the concrete layer and can be very costly over time.

Concrete must be properly prepped, treated, sealed, and cured with the top-performing pressure washer, concrete sealers, densifiers, and sealants.

Make the proper repairs and get the right results with professional quality work from the FloorDoctor team.

Indoor & Outdoor Concrete Stripping

We strip and reseal concrete flooring in all types of construction.

  • Residential & industrial garage floor stripping
  • Residential & commercial concrete patios & pools
  • Residential & commercial kitchens & bathrooms

We also offer VCT restoration, but we don’t like to brag...

Vinyl composite tile – also known as VCT – is a commonly used flooring in commercial buildings. VCT is polished and then finished with sealant and wax, which provides medium-grade protection against foot traffic, spills, and minor damage. However, after months of daily use, VCT flooring must be recoated to provide maximum protection and extend lifespan.

We offer limited VCT restoration for commercial properties, with full stripping and sealing provided. After the VCT is mechanically or chemically stripped, we ensure your floor is repaired, dried, and resealed with a new wax coating, restoring it to its previous shine and durability.

Long-lasting Quality

Concrete stripping helps to prolong its life. When properly cared for, diamond-polished concrete coating lasts nearly forever but can be updated or renewed whenever you want. Our top-quality chemical supplies keep your flooring free from dust and dirt. It protects the concrete floors from damage caused by daily wear and tear, spills, impacts, and harsh weather conditions.



Process of Stripping Concrete Floors & Surfaces

The stripping concrete process varies depending on the building and the desired final design. Whatever process is right for you, the results will be incredible and happen faster than you think. We consult with each client individually to provide the most accurate timeline estimate for your specific project. On average, we can finish concrete stripping and reseal at a rate of 1,000 square feet per week.

Preparing for concrete stripping

Usually, our clients don’t need to do any prep work before we begin our concrete stripping process. The only thing we may ask you to do is remove your items – such as furniture, appliances, or equipment -- from the area. Our team provides all the needed supplies for prep work and clean-up.

The FloorDoctor team arrives with personal protective equipment (PPE), heavy-duty vacuums, and industrial-strength cleaning supplies. After we’ve stripped and polished your concrete surfaces, we take care of the final details.

Step 1: Grind away top-level concrete floor coating

Our concrete stripper equipment, paint remover, chemical stripper, and scraper remove the top level of the concrete coating. The machinery and supplies help get rid of paint, stains, discoloration, chips and cracks, dye, carpet glue, acrylic, epoxy, and mastic without gouging into the deeper layers of the concrete. Whether water-based or solvent-based, any previous sealants and sealers are dissolved or polished away.

Depending on your flooring and design needs, the stripping process may be either a “wet” or a “dry” process. We’ll walk you through the differences between each and the best options for your situation.

Step 2: Resurface & polish exposed concrete

After grinding, the concrete surface is refinished and polished to achieve your desired look and texture. Our diamond pads are designed with varying grits to provide a final polish ranging from rough to a high gloss. Depending on the style you’re going for, it may take several passes of the equipment to customize your concrete surfaces. Polishing the concrete increases its strength and durability, ensuring you’ll enjoy long-lasting beauty and integrity.

Step 3: Apply & cure densifier

A densifier penetrates the pores in the concrete and hardens its crystalline structure, increasing the strength of your concrete beyond its normal capacity. Using a densifier makes the concrete more resistant to build-up from dust and dirt, abrasions, spills, stains, and other damage. During this step, the concrete is left to cure for the right time using the right methods for your property. Because we want only the best results, we use only the top industrial-strength densifiers on the market.

Step 4: Seal & protect your concrete’s surface

Once the densifier is cured, we seal the decorative concrete with specialized epoxy, closing the pores and protecting your property from dust, grime, wear and tear, weather damage, chemical spills, and other contaminants. We offer dozens of epoxy coating options to find the one that’s right for you.

Sealants and sealers aren’t simply preferred for outdoor concrete – they're necessary! Exposure to weather, dirt, animal damage, and other outdoor factors like that intense Texas UV light causes damage to both the surface and deeper levels of outdoor concrete. Proper sealing using concrete sealers and sealants after stripping ensures the new concrete’s quality and lifespan.

What kind of concrete stripping equipment do we use?

At FloorDoctor, we use only top concrete stripping equipment. Powered by Genie and Mammoth machinery from Xtreme Polishing Systems, our team is prepared to handle industrial, commercial, and residential projects of all sizes.

Our equipment from Xtreme Polishing Systems features reliable Briggs & Straton engines, built-in concrete vacuums, and grinding and polishing plates infused with industrial-grade diamonds.
