How does Decorative Concrete Systems of Virginia
turn ordinary concrete into extraordinary surfaces?
It begins with your first consultation with us. We listen to your ideas and help you choose a terrific pattern in keeping with how the surface will be used, the look you desire, and a color scheme that will complement the surrounding aesthetics. Then we go to work for you.
Shape and Design.Our concrete artisans consider your surface’s foot traffic, vehicular traffic and any drainage aspects when planning the design.
Then, like an artist facing a blank canvas, we sketch or use water-based spray paint to lay out the area to be stamped. Once the project has been approved, the area is dug out or filled in as required, and forms are set in place.
Concrete Mix.We know you want your concrete to last for years, so we pour it 4-6" thick, 3500 psi, and reinforce it with fiberglass, wire mesh and rebar. Your chosen color is mixed right in with the concrete.
We carefully finish it off with bull-floating and hand trowels. Sometimes a color hardener may be hand-troweled in to lend more depth to the pattern, depending on any antiquing and enhancements desired.
