Decorative Concrete Resurfaced Back Patio Spray Texture in Lake of the Ozarks MO

Today we are on a job in Lake of the Ozarks off Highway W, we started our usual prep procedures on this project, the first thing we had to do was start grinding the surface and open up the cracks to repair we had to remove paint, and oils from the surface.

We also had to level up some low spots up next to the house they ran the full backside length of the patio once these spots were leveled up we ground everything flush, mixed up the muriatic acid, ammonia with water… Sprayed on muriatic acid and then neutralized it with ammonia water once this procedure was done we pressure washed it and mixed up our first bucket of concrete which is our base coat.Decorative Concrete Resurfaced Spray Texture

We laid out the base coat which is a lighter gray, once that was dry we had to put a second base coat on same color once dry we taped out our brick boarder, then rolled out our stencil and cut that stencil to fit the patio. Once the stencil was laid out and cut then placed next to our brick boarder we were ready to start mixing up our topcoat which is our brick red color fire up the compressor hook up the Hopper gun filled the Hopper and start spraying which you can see in the video below, once we had it sprayed out the whole patio was red and you could see our herringbone pattern.

Now we have our topcoat redbrick color sprayed on I wanted to highlight the entire project with a white and a black highlight coats so we mixed up our white coat sprayed small specs which is our highlight coat on the entire surface and then repeated the same procedure with our black highlight coat.

So we have our prep work done the base coats on, our stencil laid out and cut to fit the patio our topcoat on, highlight coats done, we are ready to pull our stencil, pull our brick tape around the perimeter to reveal our pattern and our base coat below.

Next step was to mix up our antique stain we used the darker brick color and a very dark charcoal color and went through the entire pattern coloring random bricks charcoal and the darker brick red. Once I had an even, but random look it was time to mix up our sealer and add 2 coats of our premium outside sealer to lock this job down.

I believe our customer was quite surprised at the complete makeover that this patio went through going from a plain field of gray concrete broom finish texture to having an entirely brick laid look and custom patio.

Garage Epoxy Floor Looks Like Granite Glass in Lake Ozark MO

Back again this week with a Garage floor makeover, the homeowner had a garage floor that was less than appealing, the epoxy coating that was previously placed started to peel, chip, scratched and marred up with tire marks… it seen better days for sure.IMAG1364

Enter Custom Concrete Design we came in took that Old Epoxy off and gave it a SUPER Nice Granite Looking Glass Shine.

Day one as always is our prep work we came in with our grinders and got rid of that ugly looking, non sticking, peeling everywhere marked up Epoxy floor, cleaned and got it back to its original concrete….now its good to go!

Once we had the entire floor profiled and cleaned we started the base coat of colored Epoxy, applied with our Magic Squeegee then back rolled it to even the Epoxy out, we had our chips ready and my spike shoes and out on the floor I went tossing Vinyl Chips like I was feeding the chickens, up in the air to see them drizzle down onto the floor like confetti!!

Next was the clean up… the next day we came in and scraped all the loose chips and removed them from the floor, by the way I always throw my chips out at a 100% coverage this insures a complete and even looking floor, never a flaw with this consistent method. ok now were ready for the Clear UV resistant Epoxy, the coloring in the chips will really pop once this clear Epoxy goes down and the floor will have the appearance of Granite Glass, so just like the base coat we squeegee the Epoxy and back roll….is this floor done??… nope not with out a Protective coat of Urethane to protect the Epoxy.

Our Client was thrilled with his New Granite Glass Floor, its a glass floor you can drive on!!

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.
