Summer is in full swing in Colorado. This is the perfect time of year to catch up on the little projects around your home that were put off over the winter and spring.
Flat and Fancy crews have been busy helping homeowners all over Colorado Springs take their properties to the next level with gorgeous decorative concrete designs.
Here are some photos and recaps from a couple of the projects we wrapped up recently.
This basement floor was originally plain grey concrete, stained and sealed. We prepared the concrete with a grinding process that removes contaminants, improves the concrete’s ability to react with the stain, and improves the floor’s flatness.
Once prepared, we applied two colors of stain simultaneously and then “washed” the floor with a diluted version of the darker stain. This gives the floor a very liquid appearance and exceptionally smooth transition between colors.
Once we neutralized the stains, we applied two coats of a high gloss 75 percent solids sealer that makes the surface extremely durable and resistant to wear.
A rear garden patio, stamped and colored. This multi-level patio was a unique challenge. The owner wanted a warm Southwestern appearance with an Ashlar Slate stamp. We also needed the grout lines and low spots of the stamp to appear to have moss growing.
We accomplished the desired effect with a special staining technique which was sprayed, then washed, to encourage the moss effect to occur only in the low spots as desired. The custom wrought iron railing was completed by another contractor and really complimented the entire project.
