Frequently Asked Questions
Our coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.
Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. ReDeck of Central Ohio uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.
We use only industrial products on all of our projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, flooring was installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to the strength of the industrial coatings, the floor has never needed repairs. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.
A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.
Unfortunately, we must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems. If you have flagstone concrete that has faded, please contact us for options in reviving it.
We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.
We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or pressure washing the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with the customer asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.
No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.
