Tips for Producing Better Results with Decorative Concrete Products

Interior Floor

Decorative concrete products are a simple way of adding a touch of style to a home or business. These products can be affordable and long-lasting as well. For the best results, hire a professional to install the decorative concrete and select the highest quality product, such as Duraamen's semi-self-leveling overlay, Pentimento. In addition, there are several other ways to ensure you get the best possible results from the decorative products.

Monitor Moisture and Weather

To achieve better results from your decorative concrete products, be sure to carefully monitor the general moisture levels as well as the weather patterns. Depending on the product you use, it may be very sensitive to changing moisture levels within the concrete itself. Because of this, the top installation experts will measure a slab's relative humidity before completing the installation using one of several possible tools. To further ensure the ideal moisture levels, you should pay attention to the humidity on a given day; weather meters can even calculate the evaporation rate of the surface moisture so you can time the installation to prevent surface crusting. This is especially crucial on hot, humid summer days. There are products, such as Perdure MVT, that can help with moisture control as well.

Edge Polishing

Polishing is another key part of many types of decorative concrete, and in addition to the correct polish, applying products such as SmartGard or our Perdure line after you are done will extend the life of your finish. While it is typically simple for a trained professional to diamond polish flooring in the center of a room, it can difficult around the edges. To avoid imperfections around the edges, it is necessary to use a special polishing tool with an adjustable grinding pad that can be tilted and rotated. The use of specialty equipment like this is part of the reason that you should always hire a professional to install decorative concrete products, as he or she will already have the proper tools on hand.
