Concrete contractors in Houston provide a wide range of practical and decorative concrete surfaces that can improve the appearance of your home and help you prepare for summer guests, pool parties and outdoor entertaining.
The driveway is the first thing that guests see when approaching your home. A driveway installed by concrete contractors in Houston can personalize the look of your home and help make a great first impression on neighbors and visitors. Addition of color to a concrete driveway, parking pad or front walkway allows these surfaces to be tailored to complement any paint scheme, exterior finish or architectural style. In addition to a traditional smooth-planed concrete finish, stamps can be used to create a patterned effect that, when combined with the application of coloring, give the appearance of a natural stone or brick surface. Most driveway projects can be completed in less than a week and require minimal long-term maintenance to preserve the original look.
Summer Pool Prep
Summertime is pool time in Texas. By utilizing a range of textures, colors and patterns, Houston Concrete can improve the appearance of any pool. Houston Concrete specializes in installing concrete decks that beautify the pool area itself while at the same time blending seamlessly with both the exterior décor of the home or pool house and the natural beauty of the surrounding lawn or garden. Application of concrete sealant to protect the surface from pool chemicals, rainfall and the effects of the sun can extend the life of a concrete pool surround and keep it beautiful for years of enjoyment. The deck surrounding a pool not only enhances the appearance, the right poolside surface can contribute to the safety of your family and guests. Concrete that becomes slick when wet or that has a deteriorating; uneven surface can lead to trips and falls which are made more dangerous by the presence of a swimming pool. A new stamped concrete surface by Houston Concrete can help prevent slips and poolside accidents.
