We use Acid Etching to prepare your concrete for a sealant, finish, or color. It doesn’t matter if you have old stained concrete, or a brand new concrete slab, this technique of surface preparation opens the concrete to bond with your finish of choice for a long-lasting look and quality.
Colored Concrete brings life to your project and dimension to any stamping or textures. Each type of concrete color has specific applications and advantages. Here’s a few that we offer.
Acid Stain is not a paint or a color coating, it is actually a chemical reaction between acid, some inorganic salts, and minerals that are present in the surface of the concrete. This reaction results in various shades of earth tones depending on the techniques used, and these tones can range from warm yellows to coppery greens and blues with lots of natural patina. Because it is a reaction, the color is mottled and resembles the patterns in natural marble. Many clients prefer it for it’s organic and natural appearance. Depending on the location, we recommend waxing or sealing to protect the life of the color. This is a great choice for old or new concrete.
Integral concrete color is a great choice for a clean, modern look. One of the advantages here is that the coloring agent is added directly to the concrete so it is well suited for vertical and horizontal applications like a pool or landscape curbing. Color options for integral concrete colors tend to be faded or muted in appearance.
Dry-Shake color hardener is a topical powder product that is applied to the surface of wet concrete. It can be done before or after any stamping or texturizing for various effects. The colors for dry-shake tend to be bolder and more concentrated. A great advantage of this product is that it finishes your concrete with a hard and protected surface because the ingredients in the powered color also serve to densify the concrete. This is a great option for a driveway that gets treated with de-icer every winter.
Concrete dyes offer the brightest and boldest colors with the widest range of colors. They are either solvent or water-based and are applied to the surface of the concrete in any design, pattern, or shape that you desire. This product has low UV resistance so carefully choose your location to avoid too much direct sun. An advantage to this product, other than the vibrance and color options, is that the colors tend to be uniform and offer predictable results. This is a great choice for walkways, driveways, patios, or anywhere else you desire eye-catching color.
Polished concrete combines high shine with high function. While originally invented for commercial use because of it’s unique durability and appeal, the demands from residential consumers have advanced the tools and techniques of the industry enough that we are able to offer this incredible product to both commercial and residential customers. There are two steps that go into the difference between polished concrete and other concrete products. First, we add a chemical densifier to the concrete mix that results in a significantly harder product. Next, the surface is sanded smooth with diamond grit until it is as smooth as glass. This results in a surface that is highly resistant to stains and other wear and tear with very little maintenance required. While originally found in restaurants and malls, this product can now be found in a modern home or garage flooring near you. If your project is small or does not require a product of this scope, we have other excellent options for a smooth and shiny surface including spray concrete sealers and waxes.
Resurfacing overlays otherwise known as concrete micro-topping. This technique gives a face-lift your your existing concrete and allows you to clean and repair existing concrete surfaces. After preparing the original surface, a micro-thin layer of concrete is spread on top to refresh and smooth the appearance in preparation for a color application or sealant.
Sealing and waterproofing concrete is an important step in the maintenance of your concrete creations. Regular maintenance and sealing for weather or other types of wear and tear since concrete is porous and will absorb moisture or stains. If your temperatures dip below freezing in the winter, these temperature chances can damage the integrity of unsealed concrete. Fortunately, regular maintenance by our concrete contractors can help you select the right sealing product and apply it with professional results whether it is an interior wax or a spray waterproofing sealer.
We also specialize in repairing damage or cracks in your concrete. We will help you identify the source of the damage so that it doesn’t continue to affect your concrete. It doesn't matter if you have a stamped walkway, patterned concrete driveway or a dyed pool deck, we can deliver an invisible repair that restores your product to it’s original beauty.
