Hey, let’s face it, we love painters they make our homes beautiful and do the type of work that most of us don’t want to. Painters should be painters, period. They are fantastic at their craft, the problem comes when they veer into another craft like a concrete overlay, that may seem like painting but is an entirely different animal. A painting contractor will have the tools and equipment to get your painting job done professional and right. But will they have the tools and equipment to resurface your driveway, pool deck, patio or walkway?
The type of equipment that is used in concrete resurfacing is entirely different from that of a painter. Often times painters take on concrete coating jobs because that’s what they know, coating. But every coating is not the same. Prime example… concrete. As a concrete specialist we understand the necessary steps that must be understood to make a long lasting coating that will be walked or driven on as apposed to a painter that specializes is vertical coatings that will never see a footprint
No offense to them, as a matter of fact, when I need my house painted, guess who I am calling. The problem comes when they take on projects that are out of their scope of knowledge which unfortunately happens far too often in the concrete coating business.
Concrete coating are not something that is painted on. They require special equipment for the applications and removal of old coatings, and a pressure washer doesn’t count.
Be savvy when it comes to your concrete coating company. Make sure they are specialist and you will save yourself lots of hassles and headaches.
