CONCRETE EXTERIORS

The following two images illustrate how plain slabs of concrete can be transformed into flagstone.  In the second picture you'll see that we added a frame of antique bricks.  We achieved both appearances below by covering the existing slabs with a 1/4" to 1/2"  layer of  polymer-modified porcelain cement, creating the texture and sculpting the shapes by hand, artfully coloring them, then sealing them with a slip resistant, UV safe and salt resistant protective membrane.

This statue was weathered and in need of some attention. So we repaired a damaged ear, coated it with poly-modified concrete, colored it and then applied a outdoor sealer which will both maintain it's new look as well as protecting it from nature.

Custom Swing

Who does'nt enjoy a good swing? We custom bulit this 20 foot high, 15' wide swing made from cypress. It is bolted onto on four concrete footers to anchor it to the ground and swings up and over a large custom built fire pit.

Repairing failing mortar

Here we are finishing up on a repair of a weather attacked entrance way. Over the years salt causes cement to fail. The water gets in and then freezes which speeds up the failure. We first removed all of the stones affected then chipped out all the bad concrete followed by replacing and finally shooting our modified cement into the joints. The following day we sealed it as to prevent the same thing from happening in the future. With our advanced coloring abilities we were able to just remove the damaged areas without having to take out the entire area which until recently would have been the only way to create a seamless look.

Here is the same process before sealing

Yet again

Although cement may seem to be one color it is actually many. Because we needed to create the aged look created by time I actually had to use 8 different colors.

Concrete shower

We were asked if we could replace the original failing walls with our product... and we did.

Example

No curtain needed

We eliminated the need for a shower curtain by installing a tempered piece of safty glass.

Alternative to costly concrete polishing. We were originally asked to polish this 3,230 square foot area. Of course that was an option but we explained to our customer that we could cut the price almost in half by sealing it with one of our commercial products.

Chadfords, PA

Several years ago a tile person tried to span expansion joints with clothe as to create a line free product. Expansion joints always win so we came in, cut out the failing tile and married it to our product. Using our flagstone look process we created organic curves as found in nature and pulled colors of of existing natural stones found at the location.

3002 Silver Side Road Church Project

The challange was to create a organic shaped walkway into an existing meditation garden at this property. We recycled a cypress tree that had fallen at a friends property bt taking it's branches and hand carving them as to create a "floating" natural handrail. Please feel free to stop by the property which is located at 3001 Siverside Road in north Wilmington.

Yes even the brick is our modified concrete

originally this was basic and plain looking cement. So we framed it in what appaers to be aged brick. The feild was created to appear to be PA flagstone.
