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!!

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…
