How Do You Prepare My Concrete For Resurfacing?
We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.
We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or pressure washing the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with the customer asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.
How Durable is Your Concrete Coating System?
We use only industrial products on all of our projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. This is why industrial grade products are used in all of our residential projects.
How Long Does a Typical Project Take to Complete?
A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.
What are Concrete Coatings?
Our coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.
Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. Albemarle Walls & Pavers uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.
What If I Already Have an Existing Concrete Coating?
Unfortunately, we must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems. If you have stamped concrete that has faded, please contact us for options in reviving it.
What If My Concrete Has Cracks, Chipping, Or Is Old?
No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.
