Decorative Concrete Acid Stained Coating on a Basement Floor w/Epoxy Seal Coat | Lake Ozark MO

Okay so, this week we went to Osage Beach Missouri for our next project we had no idea what the floor condition was other than the age of the floor the reason being it had carpet installed when they built the home, but what we did know about this floor is anytime it has carpet it’s gonna have glue and tack strips with that being said this floor had both so I knew we would have some glue to remove and tack strip holes to repair and of course concrete does crack so there were a few those as well.

We went in we pulled all the carpet, all the tack strips, and discovered several cracks, so we opened up the cracks to repair them and did the same with the tack strip holes once all the repairs were done we just basically ground everything down flush with the concrete all of our repairs that is and removed the carpet glue now we have a fresh surface or clean canvas to work from.

Watch the video below and you’ll see almost everything we did to that floor, so the next steps were to start our base coat which on this floor we just started with two white base coats no color 100% coverage, after that our next step was to add our texture which is a Tuscan Slate this takes a lot more time and a lot more skill, but it’s easy once you understand how to do it… This coat goes down at about 85% coverage.

So after the textures down we want to add are ACID STAINS, but obviously first we have to prep everything off with paper because we do spray our acid stains, this floor is getting two colors one is an Umber color and the other is a Brown Acid Stain, most of the time I never get this the first time, usually it takes 2 to 3 coats of acid stain per color to get the right marbling and correct shade I’m looking for.

Now that the Acid Stains are down we just gotta let it do its thing and come back later and scrub it all up and rinse it with ammonia and water shop vac it and let it sit at least 24 hours before we come back and put our CLEAR EPOXY over the top, next we put a UV protection coat over the top of the clear epoxy and this project is complete!!

Concrete Resurfacing with Vinyl Chip Epoxy Garage Flooring System | Lake Ozark MO – Osage Beach MO

Today were going to be in Osage Beach MO working on a Showroom Floor!!

This floor currently has a checkered plastic tile that snaps together so what we’re going to do is remove that, once the checkered plastic tile is removed we’re going to breakout our new floor grinder and grind off the concrete paint that is under that tile.

Once we have the concrete paint removed from the concrete surface the pores are now open to receive our New Epoxy Floor System. But wait… There is some damage to this concrete as it is at least 20 years old what I mean by damage is there are TONS of pot marks, several large and long cracks that need our attention first, so we go in open up the cracks and repair them the same goes for the pot marks we fill and level them up and then grind everything flush.

So now we breakout the mixer, open up the cans of our two-part epoxy and go to work!!

Since this is such a large area and there is only 2 of us I’m just gonna put half the epoxy down, throw some Vinyl Chips then do the second half the same way normally I would do the entire floor and throw the chips, but with just two of us, time being a factor it just makes sense.IMAG3622

Okay that was pretty easy,,, so now the next step is let it dry come back the next day will scrape everything down get all the loose chips removed from the floor cleaned up and will be ready for the clear Epoxy.

Everything looks good we have the floor scraped clean and ready for clear Epoxy this time because we do not obviously have any vinyl chips to throw down were just going to mix and pour this entire floor in one shot.

Last day on this job the only step that we have to complete today is to put a protective coat over our epoxy which will make it much more durable.

Well that was FUN!!

This job is now complete, this is the same system that we use for our garage floors it’s tough, it’s durable, long-lasting and dresses up any space that you may have.

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

Decorative Epoxy Garage Concrete Floor Old Kinderhook Camdenton MO

This is a basic two-car garage in a new construction home, our plan was to turn it into a Decorative Epoxy Garage Floor, but the garage was in great shape all we needed to do was come in and remove paint and drywall mud, we pulled out the walk behind and hand grinders and went to work profiling the entire surface, once we had the garage floor profiled the way we needed it to be we cleaned it up with muriatic acid, ammonia water and pressure washed it, then we set the fans so that it could dry out for the night.IMAG1482

We came back the next day set up our canopy because it looked like rain, we started to mix our base coat and it started to sprinkle…. after that but we kept moving forward we got our colored epoxy coat down once that coat was down I put on my spike shoes and grabbed my vinyl chips that we pre-filled in a 5 gallon bucket, I ran to the front of the garage with my chips and continued to broadcast out the vinyl chips at 100% coverage making sure that everything was completely caked on and saturated. Once the vinyl chips were down the only thing left to do was to clean up let the floor cure out and come back the next day.

The next day we scraped the floor flat removing all loose chips and made sure everything was consistent, once this step was done it was time to mix up the clear epoxy and apply it, the application was a smooth process and it came out great so we cleaned up and went home.

The next day we came back put on two coats of wax and this job is good to go!!
