This gorgeous basement floor was created by engraving the existing concrete and applying an acid stain over the entire floor. We then went back over the floor with an accent colour to highlight the pattern. The satin finish makes for very natural looking and easy care floor.
How to cure concrete.
Stopping freshly poured concrete from drying out too quickly is called curing. If left to dry out of its own accord, concrete will not develop the full bond between all of its ingredients. It will be weaker and crack mill crack more. The surface might not be as hard as it should be.
- The form work itself, if left in place, or on the underneath of a suspended slab, stops the concrete drying out too quickly, and can be a curing agent.
- Spray water onto the formation. A simpler way is to just keep water sprayed onto the slab with garden sprinklers or hand held hose pipes.
- Use a plastic shield, which basically is a plastic sheet laid on top of the slab to stop the evaporation process. This is one of the most efficient methods of curing concrete.
- Use concrete curing oils or curing compounds. These compounds and oils now come in a variety of types.
Preparing concrete is harder than it looks. A professional in the field is always a good idea. Hardscapes Inc. has the experts and can help you with all your concrete ideas.
We just put the finishing touches on a beautiful “Reflector” floor coating in the Kensington area this past week. The clients love it and have had many positive comments about their gorgeous floor!
It was a custom blend of two colours to create a truly “one of a kind” floor.
Reflector/Enhancer is a metallic powder that we mix with our “Elite Crete” epoxy to create amazing floors.

Popular home, garden and construction suppliers would like to make you think that concrete repair is easy and needs no special skills other than a few tools and a strong back.
They like to tell you how satisfied you’ll be doing a concrete repair yourself.
They don’t tell you how unsatisfied you’ll be when you discover that even though you followed all the instructions on the packaging the patch didn’t dry the same colour as the rest of the concrete around it. They also didn’t mention that the repair only lasted for six months before weather and ground shifting pulled the repair apart and left a bigger mess of cracked and broken concrete.
