Frequently Asked Questions

    • How do I get a high-quality finish on concrete?

      If you’re looking for a high-quality finish on concrete, there are things you need to prepare before you pour it on your preferred surface. Here are a few tools you’ll need for the job:

      • A straight board or screed
      • A come-along or square shovel
      • An edging tool
      • A darby or bull float
      • A Fresno or steel trowel
      • A concrete groover

      When you have all the tools needed, here are quick steps to a quality finish on concrete:

      Spreading the concrete: Using your square shovel, push and pull the concrete into the desired areas.

      Screeding the concrete: Remove any excess concrete and use a straight board or screed to bring the concrete’s surface to proper grade.

      Floating the surface: To fill voids and fill ridges, use a darby to slightly embed the aggregate.

      Edging the slab: When all the bleed water is gone, make clean round edges around the perimeter of the slab with an edger.

      Grooving in the joints: Use a grooving tool to prevent unwanted cracks.

      Troweling the surface: If you want a broom finish, you can skip this step. But if you’re looking for a hard, smooth, and dense surface, use a Fresno to trowel the surface.

    • What finishes can be used for industrial businesses?

      There is a wide range of finishes that can be used for industrial businesses. Here are some of the most commonly used options:

      • Satin: Satin paint finishes are popular because they are easy to clean. However, while it can hold up against wear and tear, it won’t be able to take much scrubbing and heavy cleaning. As such, it can be a problem for industrial buildings and warehouses that need regular cleaning.
      • Semi-gloss: Semi-gloss paint finishes provide a subtle shine, making them popular for both industrial and commercial settings. It goes well with moldings and can hold up against heavy scrubbing and cleaning, which is why it’s used in areas that demand top durability.
      • High gloss: For areas that suffer the most wear and tear, it’s best to use high-gloss paint finishes. It’s not only stain-resistant but it also holds up against heavy-duty scrubbing and cleaning. It is a great choice for industrial buildings and warehouses that get a lot of traffic.
    • What is an industrial finish?

      This refers to a wide range of processes that are applied to enhance the functions or aesthetics of a product. Compared to other kinds of finishes, industrial processes need to rely on newer technologies, equipment, or materials to ensure that they can withstand heavy usage. Moreover, industrial finishing can be used to change materials such as wood and metal.

    • What is the best sheen for office walls?
      You can choose from eggshell, flat, or satin paint, as any of these will work well for interior walls. However, gloss and semi-gloss paint will be suitable for use in trim and woodwork. For many businesses, we will often find that eggshell paint provides their walls with a soft glow where it is hit by the light.
    • What is the best finish to put on a bar top?

      You can go with three options:

      • For a pour-on finish, choose epoxy resin, since it is the most durable of all the common finishes.
      • If you’re not working in an industrial setting, and want a spray-on option, choose conversion garnish.
      • For a brushed-on finish, choose oil-based polyurethane since it’s much more durable compared to water-based polyurethane.
    • What wood finish is waterproof?
      If you’re looking to make wood waterproof, you can choose between varnish, lacquer, or polyurethane as your options.

Specialty Finishes for Businesses

If you’re wondering how people choose a business to support and patronize without knowing much about it at first glance, the answer is quite simple. People tend to be attracted to businesses that have a unique, vibrant, and fresh look. When people walk into a store, they tend to stay longer when the ambiance is welcoming and easy on the eyes. 

You can achieve this for your business through specialty finishes. Below are just a few examples of how different businesses can use specialty finishes:

  • Office settings can opt for flat or matte finishes. These easy to apply and affordable options will leave your walls with a sophisticated look. Unlike most finishes, these will absorb light and spread it throughout your office.
  • Restaurants can benefit from metal, concrete, and wood paneling. Any of these choices will offer beautiful aesthetics that create the appearance of a larger and more open space. They are also suitable to be used in feature walls, floors, and columns, along with entry areas and exterior facades.
  • Industrial settings will need to look for powder coating. These come with various benefits such as high durability and affordable prices. In addition, ours are safe to use and are American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) compliant and certified.

What are Specialty Finishes?

Finishes are what we apply in the final stretches of a manufacturing or construction process and serve as the top surface in floors and walls. They have the ability to protect surfaces from water, impacts, abrasion, corrosion, frost, and more. Specialty finishes can be used decoratively, too. 

Types of specialty finishes we offer:

CMU coatings, including Siloxane Sealant, which are versatile, environmentally friendly finishes can be used in both interior and exterior settings.

Polyurethane coating, which is highly flexible and more resistant to scratches and great for high-traffic areas. 

Lacquer, a clear, hard finish that enhances the beauty of the floor on which it is applied. 

Varnish, a clear, transparent liquid applied to various surfaces that acts as a protective layer. 

Powder coatings, which provide high-quality finishes that are functional yet look great. 

Epoxy, coatings used to seal floors and protect surfaces and pipelines.

Acrylic, which is used in decorative and architectural finishes and used to coat industrial goods

Elastomeric, a coating thicker than paint that is used on exterior walls and roofing.

Different methods used to apply finishes:

  • Nitrocellulose Lacquer
  • Conversion Varnish
  • Polyurethane Varnish
  • Water-Based Polyurethane
  • Oil Wood Finishes
  • Plating
  • Brushing/Cleaning
  • Polishing/Buffing
