We made a custom logo to imprint into the fresh concrete surface and then colored the logo using Sherwin Williams concrete colors.  Afterwards we sealed the floor with a color safe sealer to add years to the floors durability.

In Skagit County a reputable concrete contractor in Mount Vernon, Washington can design stylish driveways to elevate the value of the properties in question, whether it is a residential or commercial building. Actually, driveways are just as important as the landscaping aspects of a home, such as a garden. Concrete driveways that are decorative and stylish are not just popular locally, but also on the global arena.

There are various types of concrete driveways, such as plain, exposed aggregate and colored. Homeowners can easily hire an experienced driveway contractor in Mount Vernon, Washington to construct for them these kinds of driveways according to their preference, tastes, personality, budget and even existing home décor.

Aggregate concrete driveways that are exposed are not just decorative with beautiful finishes, but also very fashionable. They have rough surfaces that are skid-proof yet comfortable enough for a person to walk on them on bare feet. Plain concrete has an ordinary look because it is constituted by a standardized mixture of cement. It is the cheapest option in the market and its finishes are commonly referred to as ‘stipple’.
The only difference between colored and plain concrete driveways is the fact that the former kind is given a finishing touch of any given color of choice.

A Skagit County concrete contractor in Mount Vernon, Washington can help customers choose the best driveways for their property that suits their tastes and budgets. Driveways also come in a range of styles to match, complement or contrast the exterior and interior décor of homes with a beautiful touch.

A popular driveway style is the spray-on finish. In order to attain this style, cement is mixed with pigment and sprayed on top of a driveway that is in existence to form a thin layer; this helps maintain the texture and finish of the driveway. Apart from the stylish top layer finish being affordable and durable, it protects the driveway from harsh weather conditions like snow, rain and the heat from the sun. When revamping the looks of worn out or faded driveways, spray-on finish can be used by Skagit County paving contractors in Mount Vernon, Washington without having to construct it from scratch, making it a good option for homeowners on a tight budget.

Due to the fact that spray-finish styles consume less time and are easy to construct, homeowners can opt to go the DIY way. All the need is creativity to come up with designs that are stylish. The surfaces of old driveways must be cleaned and primers used to seal cracks before the finish is applied. There is no better way of adding style to driveways, improving the value of homes and giving it a completely different look than using the spray-on finishes. Whichever style is chosen for the driveway should also match the personality and style of the home or property owner.

Driveway contractor in Skagit County Mount Vernon, Washington also provides renovation, repair and broadening services of driveways. Contact us today for a customized quote or to discuss more about your needs.

Whether someone is selling a house, taking important clients on a tour of a facility, or simply bringing friends over for a dinner or a barbecue, they will definitely make sure that, with all the amenities and niceties, their property looks top notch. What does the eye come in contact with first? The façade of the house, the garden, and a very important, yet often overlooked detail: the driveway. There is no telling to what a bad looking, simple concrete driveway can do to the overall symmetry and impression of your property. Well, in fact, yes there really is.

A poorly crafted of maintained driveway can subconsciously ruin or make the visitor's experience of the building less enjoyable. The driveway is the first thing people come in physical contact with, whether on foot or through the tires of their car. Make the visitors feel welcome; make them feel like the path to your residence is a path paved with gold, not simply with the ordinary, dull and uninviting grayness of regular concrete.

Stamped concrete driveways can offer a residence an immediate look of elegance, professionalism and symmetry. Every color imaginable is available, and combinations of all custom colors and textures are ready to turn the dream of your perfect driveway or patio into the very reality it deserves.

Thinking about building an exposed aggregate driveway or patio? Have you thought about an exposed aggregate sidewalk? It is good to give some extra thought to these permanent fixtures of your homes landscape. It's best to think about hiring a professional for this task. These projects can look easy but there are many considerations before taking on a job to this magnitude.

For instance, you may have talked to a friend and they told you, "Awe it's easy." He or she may have said something like, "yeah this guy came over and spilled out the concrete, then spread it out flat and spayed some sugary coke looking stuff on it and an hour later he was washing it off and you could see the beautiful rocks." Sound kinda familiar? You should know there is more to it than meets the eye.

There is much that this so called friend left out like:
  • What mix design was used?
  • What was the temperature at the time?
  • What base did the concrete get poured on to?
  • What type of tools did the finisher use?
  • How long before the sugary coke went on?
  • How long after the sugary coke stuff went on before he washed off the surface?
  • How did the rocks look so shiny afterwards?
It may sound funny but all these questions need proper answers before correctly administering the right concrete concoction for every temperature variant or substrate and or soil condition even down to the look & the feel of the concrete. This takes a professional finisher years to master and some never do. So answer the question, how is a homeowner going to pull this off right the first time? Don't try!
What can you do to save money? Not much because even the form work needs the proper slopes and elevations to prevent puddling. Here is a photo of an exposed patio to show you.

Please give this some thought and call us. We will be happy to come do your concrete work professionally and right the first time.
