Previously, the concrete surfaces that we coated were in less than ideal condition to simply polish, stain and seal. There were excessive cracks, spalls and unneveness throughout as it was once a storage warehouse with heavy forklift traffic.
The objective was to even out the existing concrete with a high-performance concrete overlay that met the requirements of both the Museum's directors in coordination with the architects of the project.
We started by shot-blasting the work areas and then proceeded to applying a moisture-resistant epoxy primer.
Once primed, we applied a hand-trowel cement coat, stained it and sealed it with clear epoxy. Then top coated it with a satin-finish polyurethane.
The result was a beautiful multi-chromatic color effect, with a smooth, silken texture. Exactly the effect requested by the project's architect.Special appreciation on this great project goes out to the Sonoma County Museum directors, Colombini Construction and to San Francisco-based Jensen Architects.
