Decorative Concrete Barnwood Resurfacing | Patio Deck Makeover with Concretewood Lake of the Ozarks

 

Hey guys, this is Rick with Custom Concrete Design lake of the ozarks. This week we are on the other side of the lake at a condo unit. Here lower level. They have two patios. We’re, going to go ahead and just do this one,

But first we got to take off this coating that’s on here, get it down to the bare concrete. I think i’ve. Seen a couple of cracks, we’ll, probably have to repair on that side, but overall it’s in pretty good shape.

We’re, going to come back in and put a. We’re, going to put concrete wood back over the top of this, so this is going to look like um. We’re, just gonna go in with one color. I think we’re, just gonna do a basic brown color, but we’re gonna have several different variations of that one color, but anyways yeah concrete wood.

Here we go…. What you guys are seeing here is the first coat of charcoal gray, just put it down, so this is wet. It’s right now. It’s, trying to dry it’ll dry about four or five shades lighter, and we’ll come back tomorrow and do the same thing.

We did have to do this uh outside lip here as well, because it doesn’t cool the screen door. The screen, doesn’t, go all the way to the edge, so went ahead and coated this too. Okay, our patterns taped out.

We went in with four inch six inch and we did an 8 inch too on our width and then on our length. We made them anywhere from 2, 4 6 8 and we did a few tins in there as well. So we really got everything staggered out.

Really nice, and tomorrow we’re, going to come in here and we’re going to do our base coat color over the top of this tape to basically lock it down in case there’s, any Bleed under it’ll, be the same color, so we’re going to cover this with a thin layer tomorrow, [, Music, ], okay, right now we have cut our lines, our saw cuts.

We cut them to open that back up. We pulled our tape to reveal our grout lines and our pattern um. What we’re doing right now is we’re just going through and and kind of cutting some of the corners of the boards and the edges.

I don’t know if you can see this or not right here, [ Music, ] here um here’s an edge. We’re just trying to make it somewhat jagged on some of these boards. You can see some of them here. They’re, not perfectly straight, so we’ve, just kind of gone through on different boards here and there and um.

You know just kind of knocked off the edges in the corners, but our texture went on yesterday and, as you can tell it’s, a nice wood grain texture got some of our knot. Holes in there now once we get these areas notched out.

What i’m gonna do is i’m gonna that’s. What this drill is for, i’m gonna go ahead and drill out some holes on each plank uh here and here. So two holes each side of each plank. We’re gonna have uh so that’s.

Basically gonna look like nail holes so that’s. Gonna be all the way down on every board, so it’s going to make it look even more realistic. You know between our texture and our knot, holes and our nail holes and everything um it’s.

Uh it’s, going to look like barn wood here real shortly. It already is. It just needs some coloring, which once we uh get all this done. We’re, going to go ahead and color it [ Music ] all right what we’re doing now, as you can tell making some nail holes, [, Music ].

Yes, it is  okay, this barn wood project, [ Applause ] in laurie missouri, is complete, [, Music ] so – and this is gonna, look a little bit different from different angles and heights um.

You know from this side to that side we have more light shining in and it’s. Creating a nice sheen across here and it’s. Gon na look like it’s really light and then dark. It’s all in the sunlight and the angles that i’ve got here, but this thing turned out beautiful.

Definitely going for that! Rustic barnyard, our barn farmwood, look [ Music ]! I think we got it got some nice texturing in it, nice coloring, all of our nail holes and every board a lot of knot. Holes got about a dozen.

I guess not a lot about a dozen knotholes in here, good heavy texture. Four inch wide six inch wide eight inch wide planks, all staggered: four, six, eight and ten in length.

We, got really good variation in the boards. Good variation of the texture, coloring [, Music ] – and we did hit this outside area here. [, Music ] too so  and about probably six of the boards in here we did a solid, well fairly solid, dark color to give it even more variation.

All the other ones have mixed color. Together, we got two colors brown and amber, and we got to uh about 70, probably 80 brown mixed in just a little bit amber. Give you more of a bird’s-eye view here: 

okay, let’s take a look at the detail and coloring in our planks. We also varied the um nail holes, so they’re. Not perfectly placed that’s, all done on purpose kind of staggered them too.

We actually chipped out some of the corners as well on some of the planks and also on the side of the plank to uh. Just give it more more realistic, a more realistic look trying to keep it as authentic as we could [ Music ] guys if you’re watching this on youtube.

Knockdown Texture Upper Deck Condo | Lake of the Ozarks, MO

This week we’re at a condo complex in Greenview Missouri, this is an upper suspended deck with a gorgeous view, the homeowner wanted to do a solid seamless knockdown finish in a chocolate color.

We begin our work morning like we do most every job we grind the surface with our walk behind and hand grinders open up any cracks and repair, and then grind the repairs flush. Once the surface has been thoroughly profiled we get it all cleaned up and ready for concrete.IMAG3685

The next step of the process is to lay out a base coat of colored concrete once that’s down we add a second coat, that’s pretty much all we did the first two days.

Our third day we came in and prepped all of the walls, glass, and railing… Set up our mixing station and sprayed our concrete with our hopper gun, then knocked it down with our trowel…. Simple process.

Today we came back pulled down all the paper knocked down all the concrete burrs, cleaned it up real well and put on two coats of our premium sealer.

Overall this is a very simple process and does not take us very long.

Hope you Enjoy the pictures and Video

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:

10277711_631674570276534_7726476077663520749_n

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.
