CarveStone is more than twice as durable as standard concrete.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 17, 2014
For decades, Allied Outdoor Solutions has provided a wide range of outdoor concrete coating services for not only residential clients in Houston, but also in other cities in Texas. The company recently announced that it will start offering CarveStone, a vastly superior method of coating, for pools and patios.
CarveStone coating was developed in 1992 to restore old historic buildings in Europe. It simulates the look and feel of real stone by incorporating real quarried limestone. However, it retains the benefits of concrete. And with a 5800 to 6000 PSI rating, CarveStone is more than twice as durable as standard concrete. Its high rating ensures that it is at a much lower risk of cracking and can still look good decades later despite the erratic Houston weather.
Professionals from Allied Outdoor Solutions are trained to hand-trowel CarveStone on patio surfaces and pool decks. Unlike concrete, which is stamped, technicians from Allied Outdoor Solutions trowel surfaces with sponges, giving them more even textures. Thus CarveStone does not get slippery or slick when wet.
Since the initial bond-coat is very thin—at around a little under 0.5 inches—the CarveStone process strengthens the chemical bond to the surface. Allied Outdoor Solutions installations are never messy, since professionals eschew tape, stencils, and stones. Not only is the CarveStone coating hand-troweled, it is also hand-carved, hand-colored, and hand-grouted, thus giving the project an aesthetic feel in addition to its functionality. The thickness of the finished CarveStone coating itself is usually around 0.375 inches thick.
Allied Outdoor Solutions also takes care of cracks. For clients who prefer random patterns, such as flagstone, the technicians would incorporate the cracks into the pattern. That way, the company would hand-grout the crack if they ever open up. With square patterns, technicians can grind down below the cracks and fill them up with resin.
