Stamped Concrete is the process of adding texture and color to concrete to make it resemble stone, brick, slate, cobblestone and many other products found in nature including wood, fossils, shells and many more. This limitless array of possibilities combined with great durability and lower cost than natural products makes Stamped Concrete an easy choice for new construction and renovation projects.
Acid Stain is not a paint or coating agent, rather, it’s a coloring process involving a chemical reaction on a cementitious material. A solution made with water, acid, and inorganic salts reacts with minerals already present in the concrete, the result of this reaction is color. It works very well on new or old concrete, and we’ve seen impressive results over decorative cementitious overlays and self-levelers. Acid Stain is a very durable product if properly protected with sealer or wax, and it can be applied to both interiors and exteriors.
Concrete Overlays offer the distinct advantage that they can be applied right over existing concrete to create a new canvas for the contractor to work on. Overlays offer innumerable variations of color and texture as they may be stamped, sprayed, troweled on, squeegeed smooth and broom finished. The applications are endless and the possibilities unlimited. Overlays have been around for over 30 years, and as with the rest of the decorative concrete industry, the growth on this segment is a reflection on the great popularity Decorative Concrete enjoys today.
Epoxy Flooring (epoxy floor coating) can be applied over many different materials, including steel, concrete, and wood. However, concrete is the best surface for laying epoxy floors. Epoxy floor coating performance is directly affected by surface preparation. The integrity and the service life will be reduced significantly if the surface is improperly prepared. A proper surface preparation ensures epoxy coating adhesion to the substrate and prolongs the life of the epoxy coating system.
What is Concrete Polishing? Concrete polishing is a process developed to provide a high gloss finish look to concrete without the use of sealers or coatings. The polishing is accomplished by using powerful grinders and diamond pads. The pads go from coarse to fine until the floor is level, then superfine pads are used in up to 8 steps and 3000 grit to provide a natural glossy finish to the concrete.
Concrete moisture emissions related failures affecting floor coverings and coatings are one of the most challenging and expensive problems facing architects, builders “Moisture related failures amounting to more than 2 billion dollars have been documented over the past two decades, and the figures continue to grow by millions of dollars each year. However, testing and new methods for prevention can provide practical solutions.
