How long does it take to do the work?

That would depend on the condition of your floor and what type of finish you would like to see applied . Based on 1000 square ft. A Grind and polished floor finished to 1500 metals ( grit of the Diamonds ) takes about one week. Overlay�s usually take a little longer due to the coloring process and the amount of time required between applications, as well as the types of sealers we use and drying time.

Should I have my Decorative Concrete Sealed?

Narrows Construction believes this is a must. To us it does not matter if your concrete work is inside or outside , simply by walking on your new finish will ware the color off. Sun light will also bleach it away. Left unsealed water can migrate into it and if the work is outside would be susceptible to Freeze thaw. Sealers act as a ware surface and will protect your Decorative Concrete.

How often should the Decorative Concrete be resealed?

If it is an Acrylic sealer than we suggest once a year or at least once every two years. If it is a Polyurethane, once every 3, 4 years should be fine.

What is the lifespan of Decorative Concrete Micro Tops or Overlay�s?

The Decorative Concrete Overlay is as durable as the concrete it is bonded to and should last many years with the proper cleaning and maintenance as recommended above.

Can damage to my Decorative stamped concrete be repair?

Yes it can , it depends on the extent of the damage but in most cases repair is an option we can provide.
