Decorative Concrete Resurfacing Interior Basement Acid Stained Floor Lake Ozark MO Gravois Mills MO

We spent two weeks with this basement floor project, not exactly sure when the house was built, but I believe it was sometime in the late 70’s the view was great the concrete needed some help!!…HEY that’s what I do!!

The floor originally had carpet on it, the home owners were kind enough to pull the carpet and dispose of it for me,  I came in the first day and began our mission, we started by opening up the cracks that were there and there were alot of them (watch the Video below), then we needed to address the pot marks left behind from the tack strips, once the repairs were made to the cracks with epoxy and the pot holes were filled on with our secret mix, we needed to get that darn carpet glue off, so I pulled out the hand grinder and off I went, once the carpet glue was removed I just proceeded to grind the entire floor to get it ready for our overlay material.IMAG0899

I had to put down 2 base coats to get enough build up on the surface to give us a nice clean surface to start our texture, the texture we used was a Tuscan Slate/Skip-Rockdown Trowel, yes it wasn’t really one single texture we did a combination of textures on this one, it made for some interesting but very wicked looks in certain places but all tied together for one AWESOME LOOKING FLOOR!

The Texture is on now what??…Here’s where the coloring comes in I wanted to use 2 different Chem-Stone Acid stains, ones that complimented each other, but did not compete with each other, so we choose to do the Chem-Stone Brown and the Chem-Stone Umber as mentioned in the Video located here. First one that went down was the Umber Acid, this acid gives the concrete a goldish tone, once I had the look I was after, it was time to bring in the Brown Acid Stain, once both colors were sprayed on and I liked what I was looking at it was time to let it do its thing sit overnight and come back the next day.

Today was just needed to remove any and all residue left over from the Acid Stains, so we scrubbed it down very well and shop vaced it up so it had time to dry out over the weekend, now it was time to figure out what I would do with myself with a day off, oh wait I live on the lake!!!… So I took the my Family out on the Boat for a great weekend of Boating!

ok back to work,,now it was time for the Epoxy to get laid out, once we got the walls prepped it was GO TIME!!…the Epoxy went down smooth as usual and it looked like a sheet of glass, the colors were just poppin and the floor was just BADASS!!

20 Year Old Concrete Gets a Modern Day Makeover.

We started this Project with Concrete that was about 20 years of age, it had several cracks and some stained area’s, part of the concrete was just added within the last year, so the colors of the two slabs of concrete was way different, my client wanted to have the cracks repaired and make the New and Old concrete colors blend together and look as one single slab, and that’s exactly what we did.

Our First task was to do some grinding, open the cracks up and get them repaired, after that we had to get the concrete prepped and ready for a Brand New Overlay with some Acid Staining. The Base coats went down great and the two large slabs of concrete now looked like they were the same color, the texture was a rock trowel, once the texture was on we put plastic on the home and the screened in patio area.

Next step was to Acid Stain the entire surface to pull it all together and marbleize the surface, we used a Chocolate and a Charcoal Colorant to add into our Antiquing Stains, so we were looking for a taupe color, once we had the color blend we were looking for we started the Acid Staining Process.IMG_1267

The Final step was to Lock it all in with a Quality Sealer and make the concrete look new and revived, I believe we saved the home owner from having to tear out and re-place the entire slab of Old Concrete which would have cost about 20k, needless to say they were very happy, please enjoy the pictures located here I will have a Video up very soon.

Easy to clean, resisting stains, harsh chemicals, and tire skid marks, our coatings are extremely durable and maintain a long lasting shine.

Epoxy Coatings with Decorative Flakes (or Chips)

The most common garage floor solution is an epoxy floor with decorative flakes or chips. There are several benefits to adding these to your floor. They are a great source of traction and do not make your garage floor slippery. It is generally less slippery than your normal concrete when wet. With concrete slabs come imperfections in the finish – this means low spots, waves, etc. Normally you can see these imperfections well, however, when a gloss epoxy coating is applied the imperfections are brought to light. The flakes will hide these imperfections and make your floor look beautiful! And, not to mention, the flakes come in many sizes and hundreds of color combinations so you can pick the colors you like best!

After the flakes/chips are on the floor at a 100% prod-cast, we seal them in with a super high-gloss performance clear epoxy coat and gives that WOW factor!Custom Epoxy Garage Floor

Concrete that looks like WOOD?

Recently we decided to experiment with making our Decorative Concrete appear to look like a different type of concrete, normally we do alot of concrete that looks like Tile, cobblestone, flagstone, brick….. but never have we attempted to make our Decorative Concrete look like BARN WOOD PLANKS.

UNTIL TODAY!!IMG_1522
