Concrete Coatings for Commercial & Residential Surfaces
Concrete coating is a covering placed over cured concrete to make the structure and surface last longer, reduce maintenance and concrete repair costs, as well as for aesthetic purposes. It is usually in liquid or semi-liquid form. Stamp overlay is one of the most common concrete coatings that provide color and make the surface of concrete floorings more appealing while preventing damage caused by wear, abrasions, corrosion, and harsh environmental conditions. Some of the other, more popular concrete overlays are acrylics, epoxies, polyurethanes, and specialized elastomeric concrete coatings.
There are lots of things that you can do in Orange County. Let us take care of your concrete structures and surfaces for you. With our concrete coatings service, preservation projects for your driveway, patios, and other concrete surfaces are doable now more than ever.
Applying a stamped concrete overlays in an existing concrete surface that needs a facelift is another one of those projects that we can do for you as well as doing the same for driveways and patios which has become increasingly popular over the years.
It is significantly thinner than a concrete patio or driveway bed at 1/4 inch thick but is durable enough for use on both patios resurfacing and driveways. Since a lesser amount of concrete is required, overlay work is also significantly cheaper than a 4-6 inch full-depth concrete pour. Overlays come in a variety of different colors as well, patterned with inlaid texture mats, and stamped with surface design.
This type of treatment is perfect for covering concrete that is dull and stained but is still in good condition. It is not advisable to perform a stamped concrete overlay project entirely on your own, however. Nothing to worry about, this is where our service and expertise come in, to save you time and bring out the best look possible for your concrete surfaces.
Staining concrete is a great idea to provide added color to an erstwhile dull surface.
A frequently-asked question from clients is the difference between acid-based and water-based concrete stains.
Below is a quick rundown based on a few key factors:
- Color selection: Acid-based concrete stains uses metallic salts primarily, which contributes to its limited color palette. In contrast, water-based concrete stains boast of an extensive color selection, available in both bright and muted earth tones.
- Safety – Acid-based concrete stains contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that make for an unhealthy working environment. Water-based concrete stains provide a safer option for indoor and outdoor use for its very low VOC content.
- Clean up– Water-based concrete stains can be sealed immediately after the stain has fully-cured. Acid-based concrete stains, on the other hand, require neutralizing that produces residue and water. They need to be neutralized and disposed of properly before sealing.
Overall, it may look like a simple enough process that can be done DIY but in reality, is a task that presents enough challenge. A lot of factors need careful consideration before proceeding, not to mention the things that can go wrong if overlooked. For instance, the stain is permanent, so any mistakes you commit in the staining project are already there to stay. The entire process takes at least two days to complete, though it is reasonably affordable at $2 – $4 per square foot. You can stain new concrete too provided you make sure that it already underwent full curing which takes between 21 and 28 days to finish.
Doing concrete repair can cost a fortune so, it is best to avoid any unnecessary expenses. Staining projects need not be complicated; let us do the work for you.
Epoxy coatings are made up of a compound consisting of epoxy resin and polyamine hardener known to have excellent mechanical properties. It is a popular choice in the construction of industrial concrete floors for its superior quality and durability.
Epoxy flooring provides an additional option to coat your concrete floor surfaces or garage floors.. It adds to the appeal of any concrete surface while ensuring safety and staying durable at the same time. The polished, clean look that it gives out requires minimum effort to maintain and the color combinations you can choose from allows for creativity to play a role as you personalize the design of your concrete surfaces further.
If there is one downside to epoxy flooring, the installation process is time-consuming and quite messy, making it a complicated DIY project. Not to worry, it is one of the services that we are glad to provide and work with you.
Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating (PPC) is a strong kind of coating that upgrades the serviceability of your concrete floor surfaces at once. It is similar to epoxy coating in that sense. However, PPC fully cures at a much faster rate, needing only 30 minutes. It is perfect for places like California, where temperatures can go really high.
The time is right to give your worn-out, dull, or damaged concrete pool decks a makeover. Swimming pools are a fixture on most households and commercial properties in sunny Orange County. Given that residential concrete decks are durable, they are also quite susceptible to damage, can get slippery with constant contact with water, and can get pretty hot under the sun. For this reason, the maintenance of these recreation areas is a chore that needs to be faithfully observed.
When it comes to these concerns, a Spray Knockdown Finish is the number one solution that we recommend. These concrete coatings system feature enhanced slip-resistance that a trowel finish brings. The spray texture causes your concrete surfaces to be less slippery, especially when wet. It is also a proven cooling solution for pool decks, as spray knockdown finish is known to have reflective heat properties. As a result, concrete surfaces around your pool remain cool to the touch despite hours of exposure to sunlight. Best of all, knockdown finishes are unbelievably affordable since it makes use of your existing concrete slab, easy to clean, unlike other high-end decking materials, and durable enough to last for a couple of years.
In summary, this pool deck resurfacing option adds to the appeal of your pool deck and makes it slip-resistant at the same time. Ensuring the optimum functionality of your pool and allowing you to spend quality time with your family, friends, and loved ones anytime.
