Massive retail shopping mall

February 5, 2016

With the economy still recovering, architects and property owners are looking for ways to save money. Terrazzo, marble and tile for a 200,000 sq. ft. project was over their budget so a MICRO-FINISH™ and REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Flooring System was the affordable and more durable answer for this retail shopping mall.

Thin Stamped Overlay: Stunning Stone & Wood Patio

When you have a beautiful home perched in the mountains surrounded by trees and granite boulders, what better way to accent your property than with a stunning stone and wood patio created with decorative concrete products?What you are looking at is a classic “Thin Stamped Overlay” created with TEXTURE-PAVE™ Pre-Mixed Overlay and embossed/textured with roman slate texture skins and wood plank stamps. The color of the large roman slate inserts was achieved with ULTRA-STONE™ Antiquing Stain and the wood planks were colored with CHEM-STONE™ Reactive Stain. Then the entire surface was sealed with CSS EMULSION™
FYI: That is not real wood. It is made of TEXTURE-PAVE™ too.

Really Cool Garage Floor: REFLECTOR™ Enhancer Checker Board

We’ve all seen check board type garage floors at one time or another but this one might take home the prize of best looking. Achieved with REFLECTOR™ Enhancer and E100-UV1™ 100% Solids Epoxy, this floor isn’t just gorgeous to look at but it is tougher than nails.

Elegant Residential Flooring: It’s Even Flood Proof

Even the smallest flood can cause major damage to conventional residential flooring. So why not install a flooring system that can withstand minor flooding and water damage? A floor that at the same time will be elegant and beautiful. It is available with Elite Crete Systems.  The floor below was applied directly to the existing concrete surface. Total thickness is less than 1/8″ thick but don’t fear wear and tear. These floors are tough. Tough enough to drive a forklift on them.  The floor below is a “Slate Trowel Down” without seams and was created with THIN-FINISH™ Pre-Mixed Overlay, colored with CHEM-STONE™ Reactive Stain and sealed and protected with E100-PT1™ 100% Solids Clear Epoxy.

Exterior Decorative Concrete: NBA Professional Sports Arena

Few properties see more foot traffic than a professional NBA arena. Now consider that the arena is located in the freeze/thaw winters of Detroit and you have a surface that needs a tough and durable finish. Welcome to the Palace of Auburn Hills where a “Thin Stamped Overlay” shines.

Created with TEXTURE-PAVE™ Pre-Mixed Overlay, this Thin Stamped Overlay was applied directly to the existing salt damaged concrete. The pattern that the architect chose is roman slate. The color was achieved with ULTRA-STONE™ Antiquing Stain and the entire surface was sealed and protected with CSS EMULSION™.

White & Modern: Residential Condo Floor

We’ve noticed a trend lately. Designers, architects and property owners want white, modern residential flooring more and more. Although overall options because a tad bit limited, achieving white floors is indeed possible, beautiful and tough.  The floor below was simple… Two coats of white E100-PT4™ 100% Solids Pigmented Epoxy and two coats of AUS-V™ Clear Polyurethane for added protection.
