Acid Stain - 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.
Acid Stain gives concrete a mottled, variegated, marble like look. It creates beautiful colors on concrete, mostly earth tone browns, reddish browns and greens. You can also create your own shades by mixing and matching your available colors, or applying them at different rates. Never expect Acid Stain to be uniform or have an even tone, you'll get different reactions from slab to slab, and even on the same job you may see different coloration patterns.
Acid Stain can be applied to walks, entrances, driveways, living rooms, bathrooms, patios, high traffic areas and even vertically to any cementitious surface.
Epoxy Garage - Also known as polymer flooring systems, are created by the combination of two or more chemical ingredients applied to a concrete surface that harden or "cure". The result is a flooring system that is durable, chemically resistant, easy to clean, anti-slip and anti-dusting. We use the industrial/professional grade floor coatings.
Turn that oily, dirty concrete slab in your garage into a shiny, clean showroom floor by adding an epoxy garage floor that will enhance the overall appearance of your garage. You and your car will feel as if you're driving into a showroom every time you open your garage door.
An epoxy garage floor will make your garage look as if it's brand new, but it also resists oil stains, beads of water and wipes clean like a kitchen counter when dirty. Your garage floor will always look sparkling clean and stay attractive for years.
Acetone Dye - Not a paint of coating agent, but it is a dye. It starts out as a powder substance which needs to be mixed to the proper amount of a chemical called Acetone. The dye must have a 24 hour mixture time before use to obtain the proper color. It works very well on new or old concrete. It is especially a good choice for old slabs because it covers imperfections fairly well unlike acid stains. With Acetone you will always get the true color. Acetone Stain is a very durable product if properly protected with sealer or wax. Maintenance is very simple and quick.
Acetone gives concrete a more solid uniform color with less variations than acid stain, but covers the imperfections from older concrete. With Acetone, you can always go back and put another color on top of and old one. You can also combine Acetone to and existing Acid stained floor. There are plenty of colors to choose from .
Acetone Dye can be applied to walks, entrances, driveways, living rooms, bathrooms, patios, high traffic areas and even vertically to any cementitious surface.
Overlay - When your old slab is unable to be stained, we can put a micro-topping over it. Micro-Topping is a thin section, composition decorative coating system that gives the appearance of concrete but offers versatility, resiliency, and minimal maintenance. This is extremely durable, cost effective material, and has exceptional aesthetic appeal and physical diversity that enables it to be applied in conjunction with a wide range of integral colors, stains, sealers and texture options that create both depth and dimension to each application.
Micro-Topping?s state-of-the-art formulation ensures maximum durability for interior and exterior applications in a wide range of climates. Its extraordinary adhesion and ability to withstand prolonged pedestrian and vehicular traffic is superior to conventional cementitious coatings used to resurface old or worn concrete. Micro-Topping is a "breathable" coating that allows for the transmission of inherent moisture vapor in concrete without loosening or blistering. Micro-Topping is flexible and it will not crack.
