Concrete is one of the most durable and versatile building materials, which makes it the ultimate compound for creating buildings and homes. The trend has gone from simply building homes to creating aesthetic pieces using concrete that gives the house or building a personality unique to the owner. Concrete can be used to design flooring, walls, countertops, and other surfaces. The adaptability of current concrete technology allows Orlando designers to use multiple techniques and decorative products to customize a concrete surface.
The design chosen will dictate the processes needed to apply it. Since many concrete design techniques require a great deal of knowledge and expertise, it is always best to rely on a professional who has worked with the kind of system that is to be installed.
Although many concrete projects can be done by the DIYer, we usually recommend small or introductory projects to first get your feet wet in the process of applying decorative concrete materials.
One example of a concrete project that should be entrusted to Orlando’s concrete professionals is stamped concrete. Imprinting on concrete is a one-time application that has to be done right the first time. A poor stamping job looks unpleasant and takes a lot of effort and replacement materials to fix. When trying to achieve a proper stamp job, the tools will vary depending on the size of the project. The application will require professionals who know the base preparation, the proper way to mix the concrete, and the stamping technique itself. Other decorative concrete designs, such as staining and coloring, also should be left to professionals, since each process can rely on experience and knowledge only developed by a seasoned installer.
The professionals you hire should use only the best materials suitable for the project. At Select Surface Solutions, we offer high-quality products that will ensure the durability and aesthetics of your Orlando concrete designs. Some of the product lines that we offer are SureCrete Design, Butterfield Color, Universal Polishing Systems, Marshalltown, PADCO, Universal Templates, and GLYTROM.
