Taking Concrete Surfaces To A Whole New Level

Like most people, there is a good chance that you automatically relate epoxy floors to residential and commercial garages. The fact is that while epoxy is the best flooring solution for this type of environment, this decorative coating actually serves many more purposes. In fact, epoxy floors are now one of the top choices for interior surfaces for both home and business owners.

Although epoxy floors can be installed virtually anywhere, they are an excellent option for the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and outdoor patio. The primary reason is that epoxy is extremely water and moisture resistant. Liquid spills are notorious in all of these spaces. With epoxy, the floor has no damage and cleanup is a breeze.

Being impact resistant is one reason why epoxy floors are so popular in garages. However, if you think about it, things get dropped inside the home as well. When epoxy is used in the kitchen, you never have to worry about scratches or dents caused by dropped dishes, canned food, cooking utensils, and so on. Even when used for an outside patio, this type of floor can withstand all kinds of abuse and still look gorgeous.

Epoxy floors are also resistant to oil, grease, coffee, and even red wine, things that typically cause permanent stains. Because this coating is non-porous, nothing penetrates. In addition, epoxy is capable of withstanding abrasions and even chemicals. No matter where you choose to have epoxy floors installed, you are guaranteed a long-lasting surface that looks amazing.

Whether using SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100, the floors are gorgeous. You can stick with varying shades of gray or go with color. For something completely unique, a professional Sundek systems installer can add SunFlex, which are beautiful quartz beads, or SunChips, which are metallic flakes. The size, volume, and color of the additives determine just how much glisten the floor has.

If preferred, epoxy floors can be made slip-resistant. In the bathroom, water spills from the bathtub or shower are never a problem. When installed outside on a patio, rain and snow will not compromise safety. This is also a great coating for the pool deck, again providing people with a safe and comfortable surface to walk on.

Now, if you want epoxy floors in your dining room, hearth room, or foyer, the installer can create a mirror-like finish that is simply stunning. Based on the aesthetic that you want to achieve, epoxy is either rolled or brushed on. After the first coat, colored beads or chips are added, along with slip-resistant additives. Once the final top coat is applied and dried, you will absolutely love your new floor.

When having a new decorative floor, countertop, or wall installed inside the home, you would consider the interior style and color scheme. However, for outdoor applications, the focus shifts to the home’s architectural features, color, and even the poolside landscaping. To enhance your backyard space, it is important to consider appropriate outdoor concrete colors.

Especially if you spend a great deal of time outside, having family gatherings, entertaining friends, or hosting special events for important clients, choosing the right color or color combination that complements the poolside landscaping will set the stage for success.

For a cohesive look that is more visually pleasing, while adding value to the home, certain outdoor concrete colors work best.

Consider the type of plants, flowers, trees, and shrubs around your pool. Although you want to think about the colors they produce year-round, focus more on summertime colors since this is the season when you will likely use your backyard most often. Therefore, look at blues, greens, and even certain hues of red and orange. If you have landscaping that blooms multiple colors, this opens up more options.

Something else to consider is the way your landscaping is maintained. For example, if everything is pristine, then you might want to stick to outdoor concrete colors that are considered refined and sophisticated. However, if your landscaping has a more natural and countryside aesthetic, then either bolder or more subdued colors would be stunning.

Although you might already have some ideas regarding specific outdoor concrete colors that you like, spend time conducting research online or going through magazines. Using the information that you find, you may be happy with your initial choice. However, you might also find colors to add to your preferred design aesthetic or choose something completely different.

Having unlimited possibilities is what makes choosing outdoor concrete colors that coordinate with poolside landscaping exciting and fun. As an example, SunAcid is a muriatic-based acid coloring solution that produces a translucent mottled aesthetic by penetrating the concrete where it reacts to salts and minerals. As for colors, this particular product is available in earth tones, vibrant green and teal, as well as rich buckskin and cola, among others.

SunH20 is another exceptional choice. As a blend of liquid pigments and soluble polymers, not only are the outdoor concrete colors gorgeous, the application creates one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Available in more than 20 beautiful vibrant colors, you will have no problem finding the perfect solution to enhance the home, pool, and landscaping.

 

Concrete driveway with overlay

Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of concrete rejuvenation and how it works. As a result, they invest in having a completely new driveway installed. If your driveway has developed cracks, spalling, or some other type of imperfection, before you invest in a completely new driveway, learn the facts about concrete rejuvenation.

Key Benefits of Concrete Rejuvenation

Any time a new concrete driveway is installed, the homeowner is inconvenienced for a period of time. That means parking on the street or perhaps a neighbor’s driveway. The problem is that some homeowners live in cities that have no street parking or very strict rules about street parking.

In addition to the inconvenience of a new driveway installation, there is the mess. With a new driveway installation, the old concrete must be ripped out. In comparison, rejuvenation involves making any necessary repairs to the surface and then applying a new concrete surface. When the work is performed by a professional contractor, your driveway will look brand new.

Another benefit of concrete rejuvenation is that this is the perfect opportunity to have a colored stain or stamped pattern applied. Using a top product, like SunH2O, enhances the aesthetics of the driveway and provides protection from harsh UV rays and stains. Even more exciting is the fact that this particular acid stain comes in many gorgeous colors. In fact, your driveway will have a one-of-a-kind appearance that stands out and adds value to your home.

Concrete rejuvenation will also increase the lifespan of your driveway. Because of the resurfacing materials, your driveway will now repel moisture that can cause unsightly chips and cracks to develop. Even if your driveway has small imperfections, concrete rejuvenation is capable of hiding them. Ultimately, your driveway will last much longer when you choose rejuvenation over a simple repair.
