We do more that just natural stone. This is the before and after from a recently completed stamped concrete project. The homeonwer hired a contractor a couple of years ago to "stain" and reseal the concrete. The results were less than desirable. The other company applied a concrete paint to the surface which very quickly started peeling.

We removed all the old paint using a chemical stripping agent and pressure washer.

Once the patio was completely dry we were able to apply an new accent stain that penetrated into the low spots and texture of the patio providing that antiqued look. Once that was dry we applied multiple coats of a high grade concrete sealer.

Protecting Your Home

Protecting Your Home

One of the most common questions that I get asked when we visit with homeowners to do the onsitevaluations is: "Is it going to be messy/dusty?"

When we refinish your countertops or floors we always use a resurfacing process that involves water. Unlike resurfacing hardwood this process is dust free. Though it is dust free it is not mess free. As such we do what we can to contain the mess. For countertop refinishing we always cover cabinets, appliances and adjacent wall surfaces with plastic. We do this becuase, though the slurry does not cause damaged to these surfaces, it is a lot easier to pull plastic than it is to wipe down every surface in your home when we are done. More importantly though properly protecting all surfaces adjacent to our working environment shows that we have as much respect for your home as you do.

When we resurface counters the bathroom or kitchen can look almost its under quarentine. However, the extra time it takes at the begining to properly mask off our working area save us time at the end and save our customers the agravation of dealing with a messy contractor, which is perhaps one of the biggest complaints homeowners have when they hire someone to do work in their homes.

When we resurface floors we cover all adjacent surfaces such as carpet and hardwood with plastic but we also run the plastic two feet up the wall from the floor. This helps minimize the risk of getting slurry (the waste product from the refinishing process) splatter on the walls, baseboards and adjacent surfaces.
