Carvestone is the Perfect Coating for Concrete in Houston Homes
If you are a homeowner who is facing a resurfacing project because the concrete around your home is starting to crack or experience discoloration, make Carvestone your first and only choice. Concrete in Houston homes is known to crack and discolor after a period of time, but Carvestone from Allied Outdoor Solutions has proven to be a long-lasting, sturdy coating that adds value to Houston homes. Some choose inferior concrete coating, solutions such as spray-on coatings or stamped concrete, but Carvestone applications are more detailed and customizable. We have expert applicators that are trained to work carefully with you in customizing a coating project for your driveway, pool deck or outdoor patio. They do not use stencils or spray guns, but instead complete each job by hand. To achieve the look and feel of real stone, our design experts hand-trowel, carve, color and grout each job with their own hands. The result is a unique coating that improves your homes curb appeal in multiple ways. A realistic stone appearance will instantly enhance the beauty of your home and surround it with a pleasant atmosphere that adds to your living enjoyment.
The strength of Carvestone far exceeds that of concrete. Houston homes that have concrete installed usually experience cracking after a few years and that can become an eyesore and present a safety issue as well. Carvestone has a 5800 PSI rating, which is twice the strength of concrete. Houston residents that choose Carvestone as a concrete overlay, can expect it to last for many years without worrying about cracking or discoloration issues. Unless a substrate issue exists, you should never have an issue with material cracking with Carvestone.
Also, one of the aspects about Carvestone that makes it appealing to homeowners is the fact that there are no messy tear outs involved when installing it. There is little to no evidence work was done after having Carvestone installed in your home.
Allied Outdoor Solutions has made a commitment to provide excellent customer service to anyone who desires to have a better coating for their residence in Houston. Concrete, by itself can be used to makes driveways and patios, but Carvestone places more creative control in your hands and enhances your outdoor living spaces.

When Installing Concrete Houston Contracts Ask These Questions
[Posted on 21 Dec 2013 by Josh Teekell]
When customers need the best concrete Houston contractors can supply, area contractors typically ask their customers five questions. These five considerations will help customers and contractors decide on the best solution for a specific situation. Here are the primary considerations people should think about before selecting a concrete overlay Houston contractors install.
What is the existing surface’s condition?
Before looking at any new concrete overlay, the existing concrete must be examined. If it is in a good condition and the primary purpose of installing an overlay is to create a new look, then there are several suitable choices. A company that has just purchased or leased commercial space might find themselves in this situation. On the other hand, most projects are done to repair crumbling concrete floors. If the existing surface is among the most cracked concrete Houston contractors have seen, then a self-leveling overlay should be used. This should also be used if there are a lot of cracks in the existing concrete. In either case, the self-leveling overlay should be installed so it is at least ¼-in. thick.
What conditions must the concrete overlay withstand?
Many overlays are designed to be used in specific conditions. An outdoor overlay must be able to withstand the high temperatures Houston sees in the summer, as well as rain and hail. Chemicals and oils (including motor and cooking) can also wreak havoc on overlays. If they will be used frequently in the area, then some overlays might not be appropriate. For help selecting the right concrete Houston residents should seek their contractor’s advice.
Will the project fit within the budget?
Every building project has a budget it must fit within. Basic concrete overlays can be very inexpensive to install. Fancy ones that involve multiple coloring methods, like an integral color that is accented by dyes, will cost more. Of course, custom logos, which some businesses choose to have installed, cost even more. Whether a customized look can justify the price to install it will depend on the budget and end goal.
What is the end goal?
The finished goal will determine everything from what materials are used to how fancy the decorative concrete installment is. If the purpose of installing an overlay is simply to repair a fractured concrete slab, then the materials will be basic. If the purpose of installing an overlay is to create a dramatic showroom for an auto dealership, then the budget and supplies must be adjusted accordingly.
What will the ongoing maintenance requirements be?
In general, the concrete Houston contractors use is extremely durable once they seal it. Concrete overlays will resist stains, grease and dirt, as long as the right type of overlay is installed for an area’s conditions. Nevertheless, some maintenance is required to keep overlays looking their best. Contractors are the best resource for this information. They will be able to advise customers on how to and when to care for their new decorative concrete overlay.
