When partaking in any home improvement project the first thing usually established is a budget. In today’s financial climate it seems that people everywhere are being much more frugal in all their endeavors. This can be a challenge when you have a specific idea of what you are trying to achieve, but are trying to keep the purse strings tied tight. Nowhere can a budget be more daunting than when wanting to replace or improve your existing concrete surfaces in and around your home or installing new concrete surfaces. Well there is good news for those of you who are getting ready to tackle the job of improving your concrete surfaces. There are a variety of systems that can be applied to existing concrete or hard surfaces that can often meet or exceed the expectations of what people want when they think of designer concrete. As I have stated in past blogs Silverline Systems is the Treasure Valley’s Premiere Provider of concrete beautification systems. I will briefly highlight the differences and benefits of these systems.
Our Concrete Coating systems are perfect for the residential customer as well as the most demanding industrial manufacturer. We are a full featured industrial coating provider. Using a variety of specialized hybrid polymers and urethanes we can find the right match for the needs of your home or facility.
Our coatings are versatile, durable, elegant, economical, easy to clean, and resistant to oil, gas, chemicals and hot tire resistant. With our color flake system we can create the look of granite or terrazzo without the fear of delaminating or staining. Also, available in solid colors, quartz and custom blends, all completely customizable to match your architecture surroundings, design elements and add your personal touch by adding logos and designs. These versatile UV resistant coatings will turn any of your concrete surfaces from ordinary to extraordinary. They can be applied to garage floors, hangers, patios, pool decks and more.
Overlays create the authentic, natural look and feel of stone, slate, brick or tile, with exceptional wear ability and longevity, at a much more cost effective price. These finishes are available in many different patterns and colors, and completely customizable to match your decor and landscape.
Polymer concrete overlays are an easy an affordable way to turn your plain gray concrete from ordinary to extraordinary. In addition, concrete overlays are much more resistant to damage from salt, petrochemicals, UV, and harsh weather conditions. Overlays also can be applied over wood sub-floors to create a concrete like floor at a fraction of the cost, with ease of cleaning, no staining and completely customizable to match your interior elements.
Staining and Sealing
Staining concrete is one of the fastest growing processes in decorative concrete. What makes staining so attractive? Staining reacts with the minerals present in the concrete giving it the look and feel of natural stone. Each concrete slab accepts the stain in varying degrees of intensity creating stunning, multi-hued color variations and an uneven surface that looks variegated.
In addition to staining we offer many different types of sealing for both exterior and interior. Sealing concrete maintains the color and protects the concrete from the weather and should be done every 3 to 5 years. All of our systems come with two coats of concrete sealer, the first coat is a penetrating coat and the second is a top coat. As you can see to the picture to the right, the top is sealed and the bottom area is not. Please call us if you need to re-vive some old, stained concrete.
The Bottom Line is that we at Silverline can offer a wide variety of systems that can take your concrete and vastly improve the look of any existing area at a fraction of the cost of tearing it out and replacing it. Don’t let the idea of having to replace your concrete scare you away from a project that you really want to get done. With our help and our skilled team of Artisans, we can accomplish your goals and do so at a price that won’t break the bank!
