The installation process for rustic wood concrete can vary depending on a new install or resurfacing. When you resurface your concrete, the first steps are cleaning and prepping the surface of the existing concrete. Any damage that is present, such as cracks, chips, or pits, will need to be repaired before moving forward. Once repairs are complete, we’ll grind the surface of your concrete with a floor grinder equipped with a diamond wheel to ensure proper adhesion of the concrete overlay. Next, the surface will be cleaned again to remove any dust from the grinding. Now, we’ll pour the overlay material and carefully stamp it with the wood design as it dries. If this is a new install, your fresh concrete will be poured into the specified area and stamped as it begins to dry. After the stamping is finished, your concrete will need to cure enough for us to stain it. We’ll stain your concrete with a blend of colors that will allow it to realistically mimic the coloring pattern of real wood. Finally, we’ll allow the stain to dry and seal the entire floor. The sealant will need a few hours to cure, and then you’re ready to use your new rustic wood concrete floor!
