What to do with Concrete Floors!
Concrete by Design uses professional grade epoxy systems that are more durable and better made than those you might find in a big box chain store. Epoxy flooring can be used in garage floors, airplane hangars, kitchen floors, or industrial secondary containment areas, and is the best choice if you want a long-lasting flooring system.
If you’re a contractor or homeowner who is looking for a decorative look, we have a selection of metallic epoxy choices from Elite Crete Systems, which will give your floor an ornate look unmatched by any other. These give the ability to imitate copper, nickel, copper, or marble finishes and are used in office, retail, and restaurant locations looking for a New Age design. Epoxy may not be the cheapest option, however.
Epoxy flooring can be installed over just about any clean, prepared surface. Epoxy flooring makes the surface more repellent to water, oil, grease, acids, solvents and chemicals and can be installed on a home’s exterior or interior surfaces. The key component is a moisture barrier that lessens the overall moisture, and eliminates peeling, flaking, or delamination.

Professional Concrete Resurfacing
Overlays can be used anywhere you may need a repair to cover up any kind of concrete surface. They’ll cover over holes and cracks and give your concrete surface a more restored look. This method is often chosen simply because overlays are slip-resistant, can be colored, and have the most cost advantage, as opposed to tearing out the surface completely. It can also be used in places where you aren’t able to rip out the concrete.
Overlays have better affordability when compared to a complete replacement, and the equipment required is minimal in comparison. Overlays can be placed over existing concrete that is in good structure but has pits, holes, cracks, spalls or peeling places. Overlays and topping hides surface imperfections and can turn any old concrete slab into a fabulous work of art.
At CBD, we have the ability to give a fresh look to your concrete surface, with no hassle or inconvenience. We use polymer modified concrete products to give the overlay high strength and a durability like that of traditional concrete, but with added textures, color options and designs. In the Atlanta Metro area, there is so much ongoing development, many contractors offer concrete overlay options as opposed to carpet and hardwood floors.
Many of our products can be seen in car dealerships and retail chain stores in the Atlanta Metro area, providing non-slip surfaces, which prevents slip and fall claims and also protects customers. Pool decks can also be covered with overlays. This provides cooling effects and provide a decent grip for the slippery surface around pools.
Stamping Old Concrete
Stamps are about 2-by-2 feet square and are about an inch or two thick. They are pressed into wet concrete to give it a textured finished. Before putting the stamp into the concrete, the pattern side is sprayed with a release agent. This prevents the concrete from sticking to the stamp. Colored release agents add accents and gives an “antique” finish. One pattern is usually set with several stamps in various shades and textures. This prevents the pattern from being repeated. Also, stamps have interlocking tabs, so that any grout lines will perfectly align.
Stamped concrete typically runs around $10-$15 a square foot, professionally installed. There are very few drawbacks. You can even add a stamped finish to an existing patio slab, if it is in good, stable condition. No matter what you decide to use, stains or stamps, it will surely spice up your backyard space.
