Concrete finishes are the least expensive of the decorative concrete options. All of the finishes are completed by the finisher and they do not require any added materials. This is great for resell value if you are looking to sell your home, or if you're just looking for a fresh new look!
When you stain, engrave or overlay your concrete you make it more durable and preserved for years to come. This type of restoration is great in an office or home that gets heavy traffic because it is easy to clean and polishes like new.
Restoration is a growing field in the concrete construction industry. Staining, engraving, and overlays are typically used for concrete restoration projects.
Often our clients have concrete slabs that are in good condition and don’t need to be removed to be improved. If the client decides they wish to restore their existing concrete (as opposed to removing and replacing it) the concrete can potentially be stained, engraved, overlayed, or a combination of the three to generate new, fresh look.
Bring any plain floor to life. Concrete stain is a topical color placed on the concrete which either embeds itself or reacts with the surface to show color. Our concrete stains are UV-stable and perfect for both interior and exterior use. A single concrete stain or a combination of multiple stains, can be used on a concrete floor, and both new and old concrete can be stained.
Excellent choice for anyone with nice-looking concrete that they would like to enhance with a pattern and color. Concrete engraving and staining often work hand in hand with one another.
Concrete engraving is the process of scoring lines up to 1/4" deep in an existing concrete pad using a pattern chosen by the client. Once the concrete is engraved, it is stained and sealed, and the dull gray concrete is transformed into a beautiful work of art that complements its surroundings.
There are a variety of patterns to choose from or we can complete a customized design to fit your needs. This process can be applied to both new and old concrete, but is most commonly used on existing concrete. Engraving is typically used on basement floors, patios, driveways, and sidewalks.
Typically used over existing concrete if you wish to have a new look without replacement and want a textured pattern.
Concrete overlays are thin, polymer-modified, cement-based toppings applied over existing concrete. Often concrete overlays are stamped in a pattern and texture to give the look of cobblestone, slate, or any stamp pattern we offer.
One thing to note about overlays is that the existing concrete must be in decent condition because any imperfections on the existing slab will eventually affect the overlay in the same manner.
