Who says that you have to have two different types of deck material for your outdoor living space? Certainly not us! Gone are the days of selecting a concrete deck for the surrounding pool deck and another material for the outdoor kitchen. If you keep up with current design trends, you’ll notice there is a lot of emphasis on uniformity with color and material selections. Just like this client, it looks fantastic to have a uniform layout in your outdoor living space to tie the two spaces together!
We are big believers in creating unique concrete surfaces that are sure to blow away your friends and family! 1 Day Coatings is capable of installing our products on all concrete surfaces! Just like this backyard installation, we can install our products on both concrete flooring and even counter tops! You provide the concrete and we provide the coatings. It’s a unique relationship that lets us protect your concrete surfaces while providing a high quality product that enhances your lifestyle.
Worried about the mess? Don’t be! Our Polyurea products exhibit tremendous cleanup ability. From cooking out on that grill with a dripping, greasy mess to working on your car in the hot garage – our floors hold up tremendously in hard working environments. That means you can live your life and not worry about grease or oil stains as well as a wide array of problems associated to exposed concrete surfaces! 1 Day Coatings can help you enhance your life while making your indoor and outdoor living spaces look more beautiful!
Backyard Renovations: We Make It a Breeze
Do you have a backyard that you are itching to get your design hands on? We’ve all been there: you recently purchased a home that has a backyard you’d prefer to rip out than live in. Or maybe you’ve lived so much life in that space that it’s just worn down and in need of some serious TLC.
Whatever the reason, our teams are capable of applying our Polyurea floor coatings directly onto your existing concrete surfaces. That’s a money saving venture! Rather than pay a contractor to rip out your existing concrete and replace it with a completely different material – we can just resurface that concrete deck!
If you’ve browsed the concrete market for renovation contractors, you’ll understand that concrete work can be expensive! Concrete is one of the highest priced commodities in the construction industry and ripping out and replacing that existing concrete surface can easily be out of the question! That’s one of the reasons that we advocate our products so much. These products let us use what you got and transform it into something new!
Cracks? Not a Problem!
If you have an existing concrete surface, are you worried about applying our products because of some existing cracks in the concrete? Don’t be! If you haven’t heard this before, you’ll hear it from us. “There are two types of concrete: cracked concrete… and concrete that will crack…” It’s almost a guarantee in today’s environment.
The fact is that in our hot Texas environment, our earth moves. North Central Texas is home to a wide array of clay soils that expand and contract all throughout the year. Dry seasons, wet rains, heat and chill – all of these conditions can wreak havoc on your concrete surface. The benefit: we have the products to repair your existing concrete and apply our Polyurea floor system directly on top of it!
We utilize some impressive products such as a our CR Mender to fill and repair existing concrete cracks. The CR Mender fills the voids of the cracks and creates an extremely durable fill material. Once filled, we can apply our Polyurea Base coat directly onto our now “smooth” concrete surface.
From there, we proceed as usual and create some amazing transformations in both residential and commercial settings! Don’t believe us? Check out our blog page to see just what we are talking about! We’ve been at the core of some amazing indoor and outdoor transformations and have the pictures to show for it!
Renovate That Pool Deck & Outdoor Kitchen
As you can see from our images, our team just completed another outdoor renovation on this swimming pool deck and outdoor kitchen! By the looks of it, we completely transformed this backyard and covered both living spaces with the same material. Just as we said (above), selecting the same material for both backyard zones creates a uniform layout that is both beautiful and functional!
So what all went into renovating this pool deck? It can’t have been as easy as just applying our products and calling it a day, right? You’re exactly right – our crews are diligent about “prepping” our work spaces to protect surrounding areas so we only get our products on things that we want to apply them to. Makes sense, right?
As you can see from our images, we diligently covered the swimming pool with tarps and tape and went about surface grinding the concrete deck. We mechanically grind all concrete surfaces to remove the top surface of concrete and expose a fresh layer for our Polyurea Base coat to adhere to! This is a scientific process developed by our manufacturer, Penntek Coatings, which we are a certified installer for!
Putting The Finishing Touches on the Outdoor Kitchen
Some areas of this renovation project required a little bit of elbow grease! Take this outdoor kitchen for example. There is a beautiful pergola roofing that houses this outdoor kitchen. Additionally there was a epoxy coated concrete counter top that our client wanted us to renovate. Because we can’t just set our commercial grinder on top of the concrete countertops – we had to work with a bit more tact and utilize a hand grinder to remove the epoxy surface before applying our products.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve been called on to remove epoxy surfaces. No sir! In fact, removing epoxy surfaces is a call tag that we are known for. Unfortunately, it’s commonplace for some home owners to branch out and purchase epoxy materials on their own or pay a contractor to install these products. Generally speaking, epoxy sounds great in principle but it rarely looks as good as you hoped it would after it is installed. It’s difficult to create a consistent color and there is a potential for chipping down the road.
Because so many home owners are tired of their existing epoxy surfaces, they give us a call and we remove them – then proceed to apply our 1 Day Coatings products! Do you have an existing epoxy surface that you want renovated? Or do you have a backyard that you want to flip to create something stunning and new? If so, we invite you to fill out our Instant Estimator form so that we can give you a free, no obligation estimate for our services!
