Patio and Walkway Solutions: Epoxy, Polyaspartic Coatings With Quartz, Concrete Stain
Another great patio and walkway solution for concrete coatings is to use a quartz aggregate instead of flakes. There are definite benefits to using quartz, which is actually just colored silica sand. The quartz offers a lot of traction and it beefs up the overall performance of the coating system. The reason for this is because it is essentially acting as an aggregate (which is in concrete). It increases the durability and the aesthetic result is a very clean, uniform floor. The quartz also requires a double top-coat because the first coat gets absorbed by the quartz.
Our outdoor application utilizes our SHP Polyaspartic system to ensure UV stability and better durability. This coating system, shown in the photos below, has a 10-Year Limited Warranty. You would generally expect to get at least 15 years of life out of this system.
Whether you are a homeowner who has always dreamed of a beautiful showroom-quality garage floor, a home builder needing flooring solutions that rise above the rest, or a commercial shop needing that 21st century look, let Mile High Coatings help you make your vision a reality!
Outdoor Concrete Staining
For homeowners who want a stained concrete application, we recommend our Dye and Seal with polyaspartic and now recommend adding a traction additive into the coating. We prep the concrete, make necessary repairs and dye (stain) the concrete and seal. We’re careful to mask off and protect areas that we do not want to get stained.
For stamped concrete patios, we re-seal them with a high-solids acrylic sealer. These are the typical sealers that are used initially. Having your stamped overlay or concrete re-sealed regularly will increase the longevity of the stain and help prevent deterioration, as is common with stamped applications.
