Taking Concrete Surfaces To A Whole New Level

Slab ready for a concrete topping

 

Over time, concrete surfaces experience damage or become discolored. Instead of having everything completely ripped out, you should consider concrete toppings. For renovations in your home or business, this excellent solution will bring new life into otherwise drab concrete.

Whether a patio, driveway, walkway, pool deck, courtyard, or floor, concrete toppings will completely transform the surface. One of the key benefits of having a professional contractor apply a topping is that it saves a tremendous amount of time. To rip out concrete requires a great deal of time, as well as manpower. With concrete toppings, the work is completed more quickly without compromising on the quality of the finished project.

There are also times when concrete surface preparation is simply impractical due to extensive damage, excessive pitting, or inconsistent repair products. Once restoration of the concrete surface has reached the point of no longer being viable, concrete toppings are ideal. The right topping can correct the problem. One example is SunSplash from Sundek, which is an acrylic spray texture coating applied to existing concrete.

Another reason that concrete toppings are perfect for renovations is that you have the opportunity to get creative. Rather than a clear coating that leaves the gray color of the concrete intact, you can choose something with color, texture, or both. For instance, your contractor can apply SunStone, which is an architectural limestone coating that looks like the real deal, or SunStamp, which provides customized elegance while making a lasting impression.

Some additional benefits of using concrete toppings for renovations include an increased surface thickness, the new surface hides unsightly flaws, the surface is level and flat, and the surface is safer to walk on. With everything combined, it is clearly evident that concrete toppings are the best way to go for renovations.

A multitude of benefits comes from using Sundek decorative concrete systems. Especially for property managers who are responsible for keeping homes, apartment complexes, businesses, and other properties in pristine condition, many benefits go hand-in-hand with protected concrete surfaces.

As a prime example, many Sundek systems are ideal for a public gathering space or great room. Not only do decorative concrete floors look incredible, they are easy to clean and maintain, highly durable, and, based on the color of stain chosen, they make a very specific statement. One of the more popular options for living rooms is the handcrafted Tuscan system, which is stunning.

Sundek also has wonderful options for treating concrete floors in family kitchens. Because this room is the heart of the home, the one place where people tend to gather most, it has a lot of foot traffic. With the right coating, the kitchen floor will look beautiful and be easy to clean. In addition, the surface will be slip-resistant to prevent unwanted accidents. With a broad range of colors, virtually any aesthetic can be accomplished.

The concrete floors in game rooms, basements, and community centers also can be enhanced using Sundek decorative systems. Rather than installing an entirely new floor, the concrete can be resurfaced. Even when professionally done, this project will fit any budget. When finished, people will have an amazing place to congregate, whether just hanging out, watching movies, entertaining, or playing games.

The parking garage is one space that is often overlooked. Polyaspartic and epoxy solutions available through Sundek are excellent choices to protect and transform garage flooring. These protective coatings are tough enough to withstand daily abuse, including grease and oil, tire marks, gardening equipment, and more. The right coating will also make the floor more aesthetically pleasing.

What better way to enjoy the warm summer weather than by reclining in a deck chair on your brand-new concrete patio? Concrete patios are all the rage, and building one might be easier than you think. All you have to do is hire SurfaceScapes, and they will do the hard work for you!

Sundek Products for Concrete Patios

The benefit of using decorative concrete products to build outdoor patios is that these products are highly versatile and incredibly durable. You can pick and choose the ideal combination of products to create the customized look you want. We can even mimic the look of premium materials, like flagstone or brick, simply by stamping and staining the concrete! One of the most popular options for concrete patios is SunStone. This architectural limestone coating is applied through a combination of stamping and hand-carving methods to create a concrete overlay that looks and feels like natural stone.

Another popular option for concrete patios is the Tuscan hand-crafted overlay. This decorative concrete coating creates an old world European effect through a combination of hand-troweling and stamping methods. If you have a more classical aesthetic, the Classic Texture overlay might be more your speed – it is easy to customize and quick to apply. Any of these options can be combined with Sundek’s SunSplash decorative spray textured coating to ensure that your concrete patio is safe, durable, and easy to maintain. It can be combined with colors or aggregates, as well, if you choose.

No matter which product you choose for your concrete patio, be sure to protect the surface with a clear sealer to ensure maximum durability. The SunClear EcoProtect system is ideal for outdoor surfaces, like concrete patios, and we can add textured aggregates to ensure slip resistance. The SunClear UltraProtect system takes things one step further, creating a hard yet flexible surface that is resistant to chemicals, stains, and abrasions. You can also go with something simple, like the SunColor acrylic water-based finish coat, which can be customized with aggregates or various masonry effects for a unique look.

There is no better way to take advantage of your outdoor space than with a brand-new concrete patio from SurfaceScapes. Not only do we offer the best decorative concrete products, but our contractors are also the best in the business.
