If you are planning on doing any entertaining during the upcoming summer months, it makes sense to plan and then install your outdoor living areas so that they will be ready to go when your guests arrive. In a garden setting, the walks, patios, seating areas and retaining walls are known as hardscape, which will ideally complement and contrast your lovely landscape. This is a spot where decorative concrete designs can liven up the outdoor areas so that they become living areas and are seen as an extension of your home.
We are expert in polishing concrete floor and using the best products, tools and equipment available we can ensure you a successful installation, done on time and on budget. Almost any concrete floor can be polished but if floor is new, you should wait a month before polishing it. Existing floors might need some treatment before being polished. A contractor with 15 year experience likewise us can better advise you on what would give your floor best result.
I called Brian the certified installer for the Cerlon product and showed him the problem. We decided that we could repair any of the aprons in the project that needed to be repaired using Cerlon. The aprons are 18” wide by the length of the door. We snapped a line half the width of the garage door thickness. We then installed a diamond masonry cutting blade on a skilsaw and cut a ¾” deep cut along the chalk line. The next thing we did is every 3 inches we scored the concrete the length of the door ¾” deep.
The next operation was using a hilt chipping hammer to remove all the concrete between the scores down ¾ of an inch so that the Cerlon can be poured at least ¾ of an inch thick. Only a ½” of Cerlon is needed to make the area impervious to the salt, but we figure that we go to ¾ of an inch to make sure the salt will not affect our repair. Once this is done and the spoilage is removed the concrete has to be cleaned and remove as much of the dust as possible. Cerlon will chemically bond with the concrete so you do not need to put any product as a bonding agent as you do with concrete.
A bird bath may be a beautiful addition to a garden, bringing pleasure to any bird watcher. It too can benefit from concrete construction and our molds ensure that it is both functional and sturdy, whilst being as attractive as possible. A concrete bird bath may last you for many years. Lawn edging is commonly use to prevent a sculpted lawn edge from collapsing, and reduces the maintenance needed. Is it often made from plastic, which can become brittle over time and with exposure to sunlight. Made from concrete instead, it can be any color that you choose, and will outlive any plastic edging.
