Doty & Sons Concrete diamond grinds the top surfaces of bench, table, & seats and softens edges and sides leaving beautiful surfaces. Diamond ground depth varies with finish. Exposed aggregate finishes are diamond ground removing the top surface of the aggregate. The finished surface will be smooth, but slightly dimpled. Sandblast finishes are diamond ground smooth. Finishes shown are close up photos before diamond grinding.
