As you walk through the streets of Longwood, FL, you cannot help but fall in love with the decorative concrete work that preserves the walkways and driveways so neatly bordered by nicely manicured lawns. Walk along West Pine Avenue and South Milwee Street, where the Longwood Historic District features 37 old buildings that have all played a role in the city’s history. Note how carefully the old gray cement slabs are being refinished and refurbished to help maintain the character of the area.
Our concrete contractor appreciates the attention that residents and business owners pay to the look and feel of the neighborhoods. After all, this is a city that takes pride in its new dog park and has finally joined the legion of cities with chili cook-offs. Here, residents embrace community rather than the anonymity that is so frequently found in the big city. Making sure that the neighborhoods remain authentic in their appearances is a task that we support wholeheartedly.
Stamped concrete can help to reflect this attitude. Traditional motifs include bricks, paver textures and slate designs. There are also floral and wood motifs for the property owner who keeps an eye on the landscaping design. It is actually quite easy to almost make a backyard walkway disappear in a lush garden with little more than the choice of color.
After we evaluate your existing cement slab, we will pour an overlay that covers smaller cracks and holes. When the substance is almost dry, we stamp it with the design of your choice. The result is a surface that mimics the real thing.
At the same time, this process saves you quite a bit of money. Stamped overlays are a lot less expensive than having your driveway redone with actual bricks or pavers. Extend your savings into the interior of your home or business property as well. Concrete staining and the installation of epoxy floors are cost-effective means of beautifying otherwise drab cement flooring. The stains add durable coloration to a gray surface.
An acid stain reacts with the chemicals already contained within your cement. The resulting hues and shapes are unique to the makeup of your flooring. Many homeowners appreciate this kind of inimitable flooring in a basement or family room. Larger rooms in particular benefit from this look since it visually breaks up an oversized surface. For smaller rooms, consider the use of a water-based stain. It allows you to control the colors and shapes. The stain permeates the upper layers of the concrete, which results in a solid dye application.
