This provides you with a value that outlasts traditional flooring as well as a talking point to any and all visitors.
Specifically, our decorative concrete option extended to a pool deck earlier this year. The client previously had nature stone installed that had began de-laminating from water and staining from potted plants. Their family was upset at the difficulty of trying to clean the surface. It was even chipping off despite their investment in a ‘waterproof system’. Lastly, they were concerned about how it felt on their feet and wanted something smoother. Upon arrival, we verified all of their concerns and are able to offer them a decorative concrete overlay that would better suit them.
Our first action of business is to remove all existing nature stone to get back down to bare concrete. This removal took some time and we ended up with nearly 3000 pounds of nature stone to dump. However, to our relief we found a smooth, clean concrete surface allowing us to diamond grind efficiently. Diamond grinding is a necessary method in ensuring that our decorative concrete overlay mechanically bonds with the surface.
Once the floor was entirely prepped we then can begin the transformation process. Installation took about 7 business days due to removal of previous coating. We also were given as much time as we wanted, so we took advantage of this to provide the best quality product we can offer. This process is pretty straight forward in which I will bullet out:
- Apply concrete base coat for tile pattern
- Tape out diamond tile pattern for grout lines
- Install 3 color concrete marbling design
- Remove tape
- Seal decorative concrete
You can find these in the pictures to follow of how we obtained this look, step-by-step. I highly recommend reviewing this section a few times to completely understand how we achieve a tile pattern design. We’ve had several clients get tripped up on this step so hopefully these pictures help aid in understanding our decorative concrete overlay tile pattern flooring option!
****I apologize for not many finished pictures, we are suppose to go back and take pictures when the entire room is done.
