There is nothing more exciting than swimming in your backyard. During the hot Texas summer, it is an excellent way to cool down, entertain family and friends, and get exercise. However, unless you have the right pool deck, you may not have as much fun as you would with the right surface material. SunStamp, a superior stamped concrete product, solves many of the issues that pool decks present.

For one thing, SunStamp creates a comfortable walking surface. Especially for the elderly and small children, a rough surface can be hard on the feet. With this stamped concrete solution, you can choose from a variety of textures that transform the area around the pool into something comfortable that changes the overall appearance.

Something else to consider is that some homes have pool decks with cookie-cutter designs. That means that every house on your block has a swimming pool that appears identical. If you want a customized pool deck, SunStamp is the answer. By using various templates, stamps, and freeform carving, an experienced installer can create virtually any look you want, making your backyard stand out.

You can also select from a broad range of colors to give your pool deck personality and character. With SunStamp, the artisan uses colored oxides, stains, and acrylic finish coats that give the surface a beautiful color based on your preference. That puts you in control of the deck’s appearance, whether you plan on keeping things elegant and sophisticated, casual and comfy, or perhaps somewhat eclectic.

You will love the fact that in addition to pool decks, with SunStamp, you can transform other concrete surfaces, as well as those made of stucco, brick, drywall, and more. As a result, you can choose the same design and color for your backyard patio or walkway, or if preferred, you can get something entirely different. With so much versatility, the sky is the limit.

Tuscan

 For a customized solution, Tuscan is ideal. Because this is an overlay, you can have it applied on top of an existing concrete surface, even if it has some minor surface imperfections. However, what makes this product unique is that it is handcrafted. That means an expert hand-trowels the overlay, creating an original and stunning look. Ultimately, Tuscan is perfect for creating a designer look.

Classic Texture

A spray-on textured overlay is another excellent choice for updating your concrete walkways or pathways. Available in 16 signature colors, you can get as creative as you want with the Classic Texture overlay. The installer can further customize your concrete surfaces using masonry, score cut lines, and aggregate effects. The result is gorgeous, but also comfortable to walk on and slip resistant.

When searching for a condo to buy or rent in Bexar County, most people pay close attention to virtually everything. Not only do they care how their unit looks, but they also care about the lobby. After all, the appearance of the lobby is what represents the quality of the rest of the building, so its appearance matters. If you have a condominium building but struggle to get units sold or rented, you should consider updating the lobby using a decorative concrete flooring solution.

That one change alone is enough to have a significant impact on the overall impression the building makes. From the minute that prospective buyers and renters walk in the front doors, the right floors will entice them. Fortunately, you have a broad selection of options regardless of the age or style of the building or the interior décor of the lobby.

Not only do you want the floor in your condominium building to look aesthetically pleasing, but you should also want it to wear well and enhance safety. For instance, with products like SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100, you can create a gorgeous lobby that also has a slip-resistant floor. That way, when rain or snow gets tracked in, there is substantially less risk of someone slipping and sustaining an injury.

If you want a one-of-a-kind decorative concrete masterpiece, then you should consider an acid-stained floor. For one thing, the color becomes a permanent component of the concrete, so it always looks incredible. Also, since the acid stain penetrates the concrete and then reacts to certain chemicals, you end up with a unique design effect unlike any other.

The bottom line is that any decorative concrete solution, whether polished, stamped, stained, or something else, will change the look and feel of the lobby at your condominium building in Bexar County. Soon, your location will be where people want to live.

Epoxy Coatings

For floors in San Antonio hospitals and clinics, which are typically concrete slabs, you can choose from several viable materials. However, one solution at the top of the list is epoxy coatings. Although this is also commonly found in residential and commercial garages, thanks to tremendous advances, it is now the most preferred flooring method in medical buildings.

  • Cleanliness and Sterility – The primary reason that hospitals and clinics choose epoxy coatings has to do with cleaning and maintenance. As a seamless surface, there is no risk of dirt or bacteria getting into small crevices. Also, the upkeep of these floors requires little time and effort. Therefore, even if applied to every hallway, examination room, lobby, and operating room, keeping them clean and sterile it is not a monumental task.
  • Resistance – Another advantage of having epoxy coatings applied to surfaces in San Antonio hospitals and clinics is their resistance to multiple things. For instance, epoxy resists chemicals, moisture, impact, abrasions, and stains. Because of that, it remains gorgeous but also clean.
  •  Versatility – Unfortunately, hospitals and clinics are often chilly. With a broad selection of colors, textures, and patterns, you can have epoxy coatings applied virtually anywhere, thereby creating an environment that patients, doctors, nurses, therapists, and other staff find more relaxing. Especially for patients, a beautiful colored floor will go a long way in easing the feeling of fear.
  • Comfortable – For hospital and clinic staff that spend hours upon hours standing and walking, muscle fatigue becomes a problem. What makes epoxy coatings unique from other decorative concrete solutions is its slight cushion. As a softer yet highly durable surface, hospital and clinic workers will find it easier to get around as they care for patients.

For optimal results, always choose a top-quality product like SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100. When professionally applied, San Antonio hospitals and clinics look and feel more enjoyable for everyone.
