Decorative Concrete Tuscan Slate Antiqued Charcoal Grey Linn Creek | Lake Ozark MO

We had some great concrete to work with on this particular project, the home was only about three years old and the concrete was in almost perfect condition there was one large crack that ran from one side of the slab to the other side on the lower outside patio/deck other than that the concrete was awesome to work with and so were the people!

The total square footage on this project was approximately 500sqft, the finish is Tuscan slate the coloring is a charcoal antique stain.IMAG1845

The prep work consisted of grinding out the loose material in the crack on the back patio deck, once we had it opened and cleaned we poured our material inside of the crack overflowing it letting it cure and grinding it down flush. There was some grinding here and there on the slab the walkway and the front stoop but it was very minimal, our next step was to mix up the muriatic acid and ammonia in separate buckets then put on our muriatic acid first followed by our ammonia and water mix once this was thoroughly scrubbed in we hooked up a pressure washer and pressure washed everything clean.

Once the prep work was out-of-the-way, we set up our workstation and proceeded to mix our first bucket of concrete, next step we applied our base coat of colored concrete, once the base coat was applied on all surfaces we continued to mix our concrete only a little bit lighter for the texture coat which is our Tuscan slate, once the first surface was dry we continued to apply our texture coat on top of the base coat on all surfaces.

The next day we came back prepped all the walls with paper or anything we didn’t want the antique stain to color, from there I mixed up enough antique stain to do the entire job once mixed we sprayed it down, sometimes you don’t always get it right the first time so we had to spray a second coat on (to darken more) until I got the look that I wanted once that was on all we could do was let it dry, we came back the next day and we put two coats of our premium CSS sealer on it.

Wrapped up a pretty simple job, but it turned out great… The homeowners were happy and so was I.

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

What Affects Cost of Decorative Concrete Floors??

I get Asked this Question more than any, can you ballpark a cost….understandable, but there are a number of factors that can substantially increase or reduce the installation cost of a decorative concrete floor. Some you can control, such as the complexity of the project, and others you can’t, such as the floor size and existing condition. Here are the issues that can have the biggest impact on what you’ll pay:


Size of the Floor – Typically, the larger the floor area, the lower the cost per square foot for installation due to the economies of scale. A small residential floor project, for example, is likely to cost more per square foot than a large 50,000-square-foot commercial floor.

Material Requirements – Using multiple colors of stain or dye on your floor or a specialty epoxy or metallic coating will not only increase your material costs, but also the labor costs for installation.

Design Complexity – The more complex your project, the greater the costs for both materials and labor. Customizations such as embedded objects, decorative sawcuts, stenciled designs, and the installation of metal divider strips may increase the total floor cost substantially. (But the results will look amazing!)

Current Condition of the Floor – Existing concrete floors that require a lot of patching or surface preparation will boost your total installation cost because these flaws will need to be repaired before the final decorative finish can be applied. Extensive surface preparation, such as grinding, crack repair, and spall repair, can add as much as $2 per square foot to the overall cost of the floor. If a full resurfacing is needed, expect to tack on another $2 to $3 per square foot (for a $4 to $5 per square foot increase).

Floors on Grade vs. Above-Grade InstallationsDecorative concrete floors installed on raised decks or subfloors will need a cement underlayment installed before the finished floor can be applied. Typically installers put down a series of products including waterproofing, metal lathe, a concrete overlay and then the final finishing and sealing coats. These applications can add another $2 to $3 per square foot to the cost of the floor.

Moisture-Vapor Transmission – Some floors have a high level of moisture-vapor transmission that will need to be remedied before most decorative coatings, overlays or sealers can be applied. This is usually not an issue with stained or polished concrete floors, although it can affect the color.
