The dog days of summer are fast approaching, so prepare your pool and patio areas by adding an attractive, versatile CarveStone concrete coating. If your pool is ugly, battered by wear and tear of the hot, unforgiving sun, it may be time to consider another option to pure concrete. Rather than a messy tear-out of your existing deck, CarveStone is designed to lay on top of the current surfaces in your backyard in order to enhance the space with colorful, slip-resistant surfaces. Prepare for summer today by considering CarveStone today.
Aesthetics is a main reason why so many people choose to use concrete coatings for their outdoor areas. Spruce up your backyard with a stone-like coating that can be custom tailored to match your home’s exterior resulting in a unique, more usable area of your outdoor living space. Professionals skilled in concrete coatings can work in parallel with your existing deck, pea gravel, tile, or concrete. Give the area a face-lift with a colorful, textured addition that complements the surrounding landscape. As a bonus, Carvestone is slip-resistant when wet and behaves like real stone, which is important if you’ve got little ones running about.
Benefits of Concrete Coatings
In addition to aesthetics, there are several other benefits to concrete coatings, such as their resistance to abrasion, impact, stains, chemicals, heat, and thermal shock. These coatings also never shrink, they retain their colors over time and don’t fade, their non-porous finish does not encourage the growth of mold, bacteria and mildew, and they are extremely low maintenance from year to year. The durability and versatility of concrete coatings make them ideal for outdoor spots that get a lot of foot traffic and exposure to the elements. By adding texture to your patio, you’re ensuring a cool to the touch surface and one that’s more comfortable to walk on than pure concrete. CarveStone also works to preserve the foundational concrete beneath from the sun, heat, cold, and rain limiting the damage done to the bones of your structure to keep it in good repair for many years to come.
Sealing in the Color
One of the biggest advantages to concrete coatings is that they seal in the color of the concrete and help it to resist fading. Whether you have a patterned pool deck, interlocking driveway, or a CarveStone walkway, you can keep the brilliance of the color the same over the years with a concrete sealant. If the area seems to become lackluster, you can always use special agents to clean it, remove stains, and polish it up easily. Restoring its original beauty may be necessary after years of traffic and environmental influences.
Revitalizing your backyard may be as simple as adding a few flowers, sprucing up the grass or adding a touch of colorful personality with a unique, affordable, and light-weight concrete solution. Concrete coatings aren’t only limited to the outdoor areas of your home, but are also great for kitchens, foyers and bathrooms. The versatility of the materials used provides designer flair and long-lasting flooring, adding value and style to your home.
