Lake Mary, Florida has a beautiful landscape which can be complimented in your own yard with a unique decorative concrete overlay from Big Top Concrete Resurfacing, LLC. Imagine going into your back yard and stepping onto your patio and feeling like you are not on a concrete slab but a custom work of decorative concrete art. Take a look at this before picture of a decorative concrete overlay patio we designed for a home owner in Lake Mary, FL:
This particular client was the owner of many exotic birds which some lived on the back patio. Therefore there was a need for easy clean up and safe installation as the birds were now inside while we worked.
We came up with an exotic look for the substrate with the use of semi-transparent stains. We achieved the look of an acid stain but without the potential for dangerous fumes to enter the home and effect the birds.
The first step was to seal the patio door off using duct tape to prevent and airborne particulate or fumes from entering into the home. Next we removed the tile which took our professional crew all of 45 minutes.
The next day was the texture coat which is a hand troweled decorative concrete application that resembles natural stone. It’s a very realistic look if done correctly. In addition this customer had cracks which we decided to incorporate into her design so that she did not have to worry about them coming back in the future.
On day three we carved the pattern into the design and then stained it. We chose three colors which would compliment the brightly painted walls and give a look that would resemble a tropical location a where you may find several exotic birds. Because of the time of day we finished the staining and the temperature outside we were able to seal the job the same day using a low VOC sealant to keep the fumes down and the birds safe.
