Before we started this project in August 2012, this back yard was filled with native trees and the earth was dramatically sloped.  We brought in fill dirt and constructed two retaining walls in order to create and support a level patio area for our clients to gather outdoors. Hydroseed was applied and a stamped concrete […]

What Happens When It Rains

Concrete can be poured year-round as long as temperatures haven’t dipped below freezing. During the fall and winter months, we consult the weather report incessantly on the days leading up to a scheduled pour. Even if a rain-free day is predicted, we can never be too sure! Exposed aggregate concrete is a safer bet than […]

We offer […]

This is what decorative concrete looks like after it has been poured, textured, and stamped. This concrete patio features a Roman Slate body with an Ashlar Slate border, and an Old World Compass Medallion stamp at its center. Concrete’s transformation is rather remarkable after color is handpainted onto its surface, known as the post-coloring method. […]

Post-color stains were applied by hand to the ashlar slate interior, as well as the roman slate border. We applied two different Proline stains – ‘mission brown’ and ‘buckskin’ – to individual squares, […]

Vertical concrete can also be used […]

Vertical Stamped Concrete

We’ve blogged about the artful touch that decorative concrete stamping and coloring adds to patios, walkways, and stairways.  This same process can also be used for vertical surfaces such as entry way walls or the walls surrounding an exterior or interior fireplace. Flex-C-Ment is a cementitious wall overlay material that’s lighter than conventional cementitious overlay, […]
