The beauty of stained concrete is that the variegated finish
blends well with imperfections, so don't think that just because your floor has issues, you can't stain
The cost of etched and stained concrete flooring varies widely.
It has become an art form, so much of the cost is the time, skill and intricate detail put into it by the
concrete etch artist. A lot of work goes into one of these floors, but the final result, if properly done
by a talented and trained artist, is every bit as beautiful as a marble floor and will last just about

Thanks to new advances, concrete is quickly redefining its role
in the concrete flooring marketplace. Today, Decorative Concrete Floors can be made durable with
coatings applied in a wide variety of finishes and colours offering the home or property owner endless design
possibilities. With new tools and practices, it can even acquire the look and feel of brick, slate, tile or
cobblestone. Builders and property owners alike are now realizing that decorative concrete coatings can
add value, flexibility, and curb appeal to their projects while allowing them to stay within budget.
Decorative Concrete was usually limited to a mason
scoring a flagstone-like design, or embedding sticks, leaves and even impressing coffee cans into the surface to
achieve a desired effect. Today, the leading edge of concrete is a process called Decorative Concrete
Coatings or Concrete Overlays. This involves re-coating old pitted ugly grey concrete with a polymer
modified cement material by either troweling, spraying, or stamping it with concrete imprinting mats or
concrete stamping mats, copied from actual brick or stonework. When the application is complete, the
product is then coloured or acid stained and sealed, providing greater stain and weather resistance. The
result is a surface that combines the beauty of masonry with the durability of concrete. There are over 40
different colours to choose from, ranging from natural earth tones to bright pastels. Pattern choices include
slate, brick, cobblestone, tile, flagstone and more.
Anyone who has been to Montecasino, Disney World, Six Flags
Amusement Parks, or Las Vegas, has probably walked all over those cobblestone streets, slate or brick sidewalks for
hours on end, never realizing that it was actual concrete. Unfortunately, people on our continent are
often the last to get access to these new advances in decorative concrete flooring. Decorative concrete
can be stronger and more chemical resistant than ordinary concrete with a higher cement content, advanced
reinforcement materials, surface hardeners and protective sealers.
The products we use are designed to restore and resurface structurally
sound but surface deteriorated concrete surfaces like floors, driveways and pool surrounds, both
residential & commercial and indoors & outdoors. These products turn conventional grey concrete
into the more aesthetically pleasing finishes that are more resistant to traffic and wear.
These finishes include the look and feel of aesthetic
stone, slate, tile, brick, marble and granite and can be customised to match or enhance any design or
theme that you can imagine. With literally unlimited amounts of colours, textures, patterns and
designs, your imagination is the only limitation. Ideal for installation on, driveways, walkways, garages, residential
& commercial pools, decks, interior flooring, auto dealerships, restaurants, concrete rock &
water features etc.
With a range of polymer modified cementitious products to suit
your texture requirements, colour pigments like Raven, Ocean Slate, Deep Coffee and Burnt Orange to name
but a few, concrete primers, concrete liquid release agents, antiquing and acid stains, water-based and
solvent sealers, we can meet all of your Decorative Concrete
Restoration - restore pitted and deteriorated
concrete by typically applying a 6mm thick layer over the entire surface. This can be finished with
a thin trowel surface or a conventional broom finish texture. This layer can be thinned down to a feathered
edge, depending on the
Exterior - thin stamped-overlay can create the
authentic look and feel of stone, brick, slate and tile. It can be applied to any existing concrete
surface and is ideal for driveways and patios. Splatter textures add an aesthetic coloured pattern and

Polymer Cement Overlays consist of a proprietary blend of Portland
Cements, various aggregates and proprietary hybrid polymer resins. The purpose of adding the hybrid polymer
resin is to increase the performance characteristics and versatility of conventional cements, mortars and
Unlike conventional cement and concrete, polymer
cement overlays can be applied from as thin as a single grain of sand up to several inches thick without
fear of delamination or failure. In addition, polymer cement overlays are more resistant to damage
from salt, petrochemical, ultraviolet, harsh weather conditions and foot
Polymer Cement Overlays were introduced over twenty years ago,
originally used as a thin surface concrete restoration product. After years of successful, permanent
applications, polymer cement overlays were introduced into the architectural and commercial flooring industry
in the early 80's, where it's use has become an industry norm. Today polymer cement overlays are used
