The everything-about-concrete.com newsletter, special announcement!!
May 28, 2018
Coming Soon! The Concrete Skilz Academy
See the details at the end of the newsletter!!
Would you like to learn how to do this?Hi Everyone!
My name is Mike Day, I own this website and also a concrete construction business, Day's Concrete Floors, Inc.
We've been really busy lately pouring concrete floors and slabs, stamping concrete, staining concrete, and repairing concrete.
I know you're interested in learning about concrete and the skills required to successfully install it.
Below is a base pad for a new paper machine we pumped into this building. It was 40 yards of 4000psi concrete mix.
My company, Day's Concrete Floors, Inc pours and finishes concrete almost every day.
In the picture above, we poured and are in the process of finishing a house and garage concrete floors.
Some times we finish parts of the floor by hand and sometimes we use power trowels. Both require good knowledge of how concrete reacts in different weather conditions and the skills to do each method.
We also pour a lot of colored and stamped concrete. Stamping concrete takes a special set of skills. It's easy for things to go wrong if you don't know what you're doing.
When the process goes as planned, you can make some beautiful looking concrete.
We stained these concrete floors using a concrete dye and sealed them with an acrylic solvent base concrete sealer.
Staining concrete is an inexpensive way of making plain concrete look decorative. There is some preparation you need to do to the concrete before staining. We like to lightly grind the concrete to open the "pores" so the stain will bond properly. Sealing is a must for protecting it.
If you need help with concrete, anything to do with concrete, I'll do my best to help you. I've been working with it for 38 years.
I'm in the process of making some video courses on:
Mixing concrete from raw materials.
Pouring a concrete floor.
Staining a concrete floor.
Stamping a concrete patio.
Just to name a few. If you interested in learning about a certain type of concrete project, just let me know.
What would you most like to learn about? Let me know. Just reply to this email.
