These floors are so reflective, they just light-up the spaces we install them within. They are super low maintenance and easy to keep clean.

Concrete treatments may also support your LEED compliance, always happy to inform and educate
We have applied overlays to already damaged driveways such as yours. (Including ours). After
a year or two, when moisture gets into the concrete it causes the top layer to delaminate in places. Had I kept a sealer on it, I would not have these issues. Cracks all returned and delaminated the overlay across the length of these cracks. BUT... even with these issues. overall it looks better than the neighbors. Georgeanne, it looks easy, but for a driveway you really need a crew who has done it to give yourself any shot at holding fast.
I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

I went and looked at the website. This is a non-reactive water based concrete stain. A
couple of concerns... one. They used muriatic acid which is not recommended for use by do-it-yerselfers. The reason... neutralizing the material was never mentioned. They said they applied and let dry. This creates a ticking time bomb until failure. Unless PROPERLY neutralized, the floor is too acidic and will start coming apart. Secondly, a garden pump sprayer is the way to apply these materials, NOT via roller. You will get roller marks. (as they did). They also recommend their primer in advance of these materials. I did not see any priming of the surface. Future issues? Most likely...
however as the start of the year has been very slow, I am looking to replace 340 Sq Ft to start (17' wide X 20') at the downward slope that meets the garage. I am thinking of replacing a
small section with brick pavers to separate the sections. I would even consider a "Barter" situation. Any local suggestions for Roswell?
Many Thanks, and Happy New Year

Sorry Lauri, no insight there. The best value contractor is the one in your community who
needs not travel far with equipment and crew. One with local references and who may not be the lowest bidder. Beware of bids too good to be true. This is one area where I have seen "good deals" gone very bad. Good Luck!
Wendy, as with many projects, the real answer is ... it depends. Is the floor covered with
carpet, linolium or tile currently? Will you remove or will a contractor, how many square feet will be stained? Are you looking to do it yourself or hire a pro? It can run from pennies to many dollars per square foot.
