A new type of epoxy coating that is increasing in popularity is known as metallic coatings. This new type of epoxy-based system allows you to “guild” your concrete to replicate the look of copper, silver, aged bronze, nickel, and other shimmery patinas. Some of these coatings contain real metallic powders, while others use special reflective pigments. They are especially popular for floors in retail, office, and restaurant settings, where a modern, upscale look is desired.

Another question we sometimes get from prospective clients considering stamped concrete is whether or not it is slippery to walk on. Since stamped concrete is a textured surface, it is more often slip resistant than conventional concrete. Although, just like natural stone, it can become slippery when wet or if a film-forming sealer has been applied. If you plan on having stamped concrete installed in a high-traffic area, such as an entryway or pool deck, there are a number of things you can do to increase its slip resistance.

To help reduce potential damage caused over the course of the winter, here are some helpful tips to take into consideration.
- Always try to remove snow and ice as soon as possible from your concrete to avoid effects from freeze/thaw cycles.
- Since it has no adverse effect on concrete, use sand whenever possible instead of salt if you need traction on an icy concrete surface.
- If you plan on having concrete installed, request that a protective sealer to be added after curing. This will help reduce moisture and deicing salt penetration (should you ever use it) into the surface of your concrete.
- Avoid using any type of deicer the first winter after your concrete surface is installed.
- Since they can deteriorate concrete surfaces, never use deicers that contain ammonium sulfate or ammonium nitrate.
