Lake of the Ozarks Decorative Concrete Flooring Stamped Acid Stained

Here’s one I did in May of 2011 a few Months Back (sorry for the delay in getting the Video on my blog) it was placed on a Back Deck of the Condo Unit, a Solid Surface with No Boarder or Pattern, just a Nice Chunky like texture…. I put Choc colorant into the Mix and then Sprayed with our Choc colored Acid Stain.

Then Locked in the color with our Premium Outdoor Sealer.

It turned out very Rich in Color and in some area’s has a marble effect with some depth to give it some dimension!!

New Product Receives Rave Reviews

Elite Crete Systems has entered REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Flooring Systems in the Most Innovative Products content put on by Hanley Wood for the 2010 World of Concrete exposition.

Exceeding Our Expectations… When we designed and then released the REFLECTOR Enhancer Flooring Systems over a year ago, we anticipated the new product line to be no different than any other new product release. Much to our surprise, the demand for these flooring systems absolutely exploded. In just a few months, architects had specified these new systems for commercial flooring products that originally had either acid stain, waterborne stain or dye stain in mind. Projects such as restaurants, hospitals, automobile dealerships and more were lining up to have REFLECTOR Enhancer Flooring Systems installed in place of other systems. Benefits Beyond Belief…

Although from a distance REFLECTOR Enhancer Flooring Systems might resemble the look of conventional acid stain or other staining products, up close the look is completely different. The colors are more natural and wild at the same time. Typical acid stain blemishes are not present and in their place is mottling and antiquing that simply cannot be achieved with other staining products. However, aesthetics is just the tip of the iceberg. As great looking and unique as these systems are, the real difference is the level of durability compared to other stained floors. In fact, these systems are so tough that they can withstand heavy forklift traffic. Unbelievable Ease of Use. Imagine not having to rinse or neutralize a stain. Think about how great it would be to complete a large project in 1 to 2 days instead of 3 to 4? REFLECTOR Enhancer allows this..

Stamped Concrete or Troweled Concrete Overlay,, what’s the difference??

Our potential clients often ask us the differences between stamped overlays and troweled overlays There are significant differences that every homeowner should be aware of before making a decision about their concrete coating project.

Stamped concrete is concrete that is patterned and/or textured or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures. Stamped concrete is commonly used for patios, sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, and interior flooring. The ability of stamped concrete to resemble other building materials makes stamped concrete a less expensive alternative to using those other authentic materials such as stone, slate or brick.

There are three procedures used in stamped concrete which separate it from other concrete procedures; the addition of a base color, the addition of an accent color, and stamping a pattern into the concrete. These three procedures provide stamped concrete with a color and shape similar to the natural building material. It also is longer lasting than paved stone, and still resembles the look. One Drawback to Stamped Concrete as compared to Troweled on Systems,  it is more expensive to do just because it requires more material to be placed and can be mo re time consuming as well. So basically more material and labor are required.

A troweled coating is applied by troweling a cement mixture onto the top of existing concrete, usually at a thickness of approximately 1/8”.   The coloring on a troweled coating is put within the concrete while it’s being mixed.  The grout lines are taped  to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, then a tack coat is added over the tape to prevent bleeding of the colors (basically sealing in the grout coat so the top coat will not bleed into the grout lines. The Top coat is then applied in a rough texture to resemble rock or a smother texture to possibly to be more like Tile, or an knockdown finish may be desired, usually two to three coats of sealer is applied to Finish the Project.

This flooring alternative is rapidly rising in popularity. Concrete Overlay Coatings have been a long time standard in the Southwestern part of the United States, Decorative Concrete has caught on nationwide because of its beauty and versatility. Having shed its drab ugly appearance, today it is being transformed into works of art. resized-image14

Chipped, stained and damaged pool decks, driveways and interior floors can be resurfaced and made to look like beautiful natural stone at a mere fraction of the price of replacing it. Concrete is the new interior and exterior design King. Few materials can compete with concrete when it comes to versatility. It can be molded into any shape, stained or dyed to match nearly any hue and exhibit textures ranging from rough to highly polished. Concrete can be given a whole new look with engraving, acid staining, texturing, overlaying or resurfacing.

What Is Acid Stain?

Most acid stains are a mixture of water, hydrochloric acid, and acid-soluble metallic salts. They work by reacting chemically with the hydrated lime in the stain producing color in the concrete. When acid stain is applied to a concrete surface it creates a mottled, uneven, translucent color. This coloring process gives the surface a look similar to weathered stone, slate or marble. Since each concrete slab has a slightly different chemical combination colors in concrete can vary. Acid Staining unlike paint is not a coating. Therefore, the color becomes a permanent part of the surface and will not chip, flake or peel. Since acid stain is translucent cracks and other imperfections in the slab give a weathered look of character.

Concrete acid staining isn’t something that should be done by a novice. There are so many things that can go wrong with the application from spills on your walls or driveway, to eating a hole in the floor of your car or truck if not handled properly.

However an experienced applicator can produce a one of kind work of art with concrete and acid stain. Intricate designs can be scored or etched into your surface giving the appearance of tile or stone. Stained concrete floors seem to be everywhere — in homes, at work, in stores and shopping malls, schools, sports complexes, hair salons, anywhere there’s concrete.

Benefits of Stained Concrete:

  • You can custom design your surface.
  • Easy to care for, cleans easily with a damp mop.
  • Very durable, with care will last a lifetime.
  • Non-allergenic
  • Costs less than carpet, tile or hardwood!!
