Decorative Concrete Lakeside Patio Deck with Acid Stain in Laurie, MO

With this patio we started out with a pretty good slab of concrete, it had 3 cracks running from the house all the way to the railing, we of course repaired them did a little grinding (just a few rough spots nothing major) and started our Overlay Process.

We did our usual prep work to begin which is always the grinding and repairs, then we go in with a Muriatic Acid wash then an Ammonia Rinse, followed by a soft water rinse, then we hammer the concrete with our 4000 PSI pressure washer and really get those pours of the concrete wide open for our overlay material.

Taped up everIMAG0669ything on the bottom end (walls, railings, posts anything we did not want concrete on) with a 3/4 inch fiber tape, then spread out the base coat slightly darker chocolate than the top coat, just trying to give the deck a more 3D look. Once the base coat was on it was time to paper off everything that we did not want Acid stain on.

Now its time for the Top coat of concrete everything is taped off and we were ready for the next phase, the top coat Texture is a Tuscan Slate its about a 85 to 90% coverage rate, so we can see the our base coat, now that the Texture coat is on we are ready to start mixing stain and spraying it on, the Acid Stain will sit in the low pockets of the design and darken the base coat a little more plus it Slightly Marbleizes the top coat Tuscan Slate Texture at the same time, really gives it a nice look.

Now its time to apply our premium Sealer, once the 1st coat goes down and soaks in the color starts to really pop, but its the second coat I call the money coat, it brings the SHINE!!

Decorative Concrete Resurfacing Pool Deck Lake of the Ozarks Gravois Mill MO

Wow what a Job it was right in the rainiest part of the year, well it wasn’t bad we got through this one, started with some really decent concrete made a few repairs and adjustments here and there, but overall it was a great success.

We did our usual grinding here and there, fixed some cracks, the Leveling was probably the most challenging thank you John Clary from John Clary Concrete in Laurie MO, your help was priceless.10155018_10152207076943229_7615070453990164271_n

We originally started this Project with hopes to do more than just the pool deck area, but after a late start , some rain and a timeline to get it done we decided to just concentrate on the pool deck alone for now, we will get back over there to get the rest of it done sometime this fall after Coconuts closes for the season, looks like we will have about 5,000 MORE sqft feet to get done then.

Anyway we got our first coat down (dark grout) after a week of prep work it went very smoothly, once we had that down it was time to Hand Tape that Entire pool deck you see, wow it was a job let me tell ya, but we got through it and from there once the pattern was laid down we had to get everything around the entire pool deck masked off to contain the over-spray from the Knockdown Finish that was to be laid down.

Finally we were ready to spray the surface, out first coat went down really smooth, same with the second, next was the highlight coat, we were running out of  daylight and pushed it till the last bit of light but we had enough and we got it done, came back a few days later because we had some rain come in.

Last day was clean-up, its so time consuming to mask it off, but pulling it off was a breeze!!…haha.. cleaned the surface really well after we pulled all the pattern tape and removed all the paper, now it was time for sealer!!….The sealer really makes the color pop and adds so much more dimension to any project we do, 2 coats and 8 hours later we were done with sealer and it was time for the Video and photo’s!

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

Epoxy Garage Floor w/Decorative Vinyl Chips Lake of the Ozarks MO

Here’s a Garage floor located in Camdenton Mo at Old Kinderhook, we profiled the entire surface by grinding off the paint and drywall material, cleaned it all up then started our Epoxy Garage Flooring System.

IMAG0234

First we started by applying the Base coat of colored Epoxy which in this case was a light Tan color, once it was down we simply threw out Vinyl Chips (brown, beige, black, white), let it set for the day, came back in on day 3 and put on our protectorthan coat, final day was simply another coat of protectorthan.

Very simple neat and clean job…

Decorative Concrete Basement Floor Antiqued Charcoal Coloring with Epoxy Finish

Here we have a 640sqft Basement Floor that was in bad shape it had over 300 small and med size holes in the surface from pulling the carpet strips, it had black mastic in both bedrooms that was very stubborn to remove we had to grind the entire surface down the the bare concrete, once the grinding was done we discovered many cracks that were not detected until the grinding was finished, so we repaired all the cracks and there were alot of them. IMAG0134

Once we removed the mastic and repaired the holes and cracks we were able to start our cleanup, after clean up it was time for the base coat of concrete, the base coat went on very nicely and really made the floor look new again!

Next step was to start layering our texture, we did 2 top coats of a slighter lighter in color concrete but this was a 50/50 mixture the mixture we did gave us a less grainy feel and a more creamy smoother finish, coverage was at about 85% coverage, we wanted to create smaller pockets so we could see our first base coat which is basically how a Tuscan Slate finish is done.

 

IMAG0131

Now that we have Texture it was time to paper everything off from any over-spray because it was time to start spraying our Antiquing Stain onto the floor, once the masking/papering was done we mixed our stain and poured it into a pump up sprayer and proceeded to spray the surface. We had to put 3 Antique coats down to get the correct shade.

 

It was now time for the High Gloss Epoxy Finish to make the coloring POP!!….The Epoxy went down as expected smooth and efficient and looked AWESOME!!

Epoxy Countertops – VS – Other Counter Top Options

Epoxy Resin Countertops

Resin is a type of solid surface countertop but with more variations. It is produced in a pleasing array of colors and textures.

Pros and Cons of Resin Countertops: On the plus side, resin counters are very durable, impact-resistant and very easy to clean. Most hold their color very well, even in direct sunlight. Small scratches or nicks can be sanded out of the countertop. Newer resin tops can be made with less pigment, giving them a semi-opaque, translucent quality. This is ideal for backlighting the countertops, giving them a very unique appearance. The key potential negative for resin countertops is the lack of consistent quality from brand to brand. Look for acrylic or Epoxy Resin Countertops and avoid polyester resin countertops.

Resin Price Range: $51-$127 per square foot.
