Decorative Concrete Overlay

January 25, 2010

After being on a few large commercial polished concrete projects it was fun to do a decorative overlay!

This project is a large tile pattern thin concrete overlay in our customers’ bedroom and bathroom.

There are heat cables in the self leveller.  Danamac then  came in and went over it with this decorative concrete overlay.


Old Faithful ……

At Danamac we pride ourselves on having the Knowledge, Experience and EQUIPMENT to meet and exceed our client’s expectations.  We take time to not only ensure that we have the right equipment but we also ensure that our equipment is maintained properly.

We have one machine that has been our “go to” machine for years.   We call it “old faithful”  others that are the same make and model don’t have the same reputation with us as this particular machine does.  This machine has a huge amount of square feet under it’s belt (so to speak!) and has only required the regular maintenance that is standard at Danamac.

……. well ……. the time has come that old faithful is on her last belts and needs some serious attention.  Lets see how far she goes with her new overhaul!

This project is tilt up construction.  The client wanted a high polished concrete floor.  This was achieved by Danamac’s skilled team by using our expertise and our polishing equipment.  In addition to the beautiful polished concrete finish achieved,  there is a neat sawcut pattern which is filled with custom black polyurea joint filler on this floor. It was a pleasure to work for WestCoast Ford Lincoln, Bynett Construction and Graham Hoffart Mathiasen Architects on this project.

The showroom and office are natural grey high polished concrete which was densified and sealed.

The Service and Parts areas are also polished concrete but with light reflective shake on hardener to increase the brightness

Once our portion of the project was completed, the floors were covered with a protective board.  Construction continued for another 8 months.  The contractor then uncovered the floor, Danamac came back in to give the floors a quick final buff and the client was ready to open for business.

Danamac Homes Ltd. started off as a spec house and custom home building company.  It was when we did our first stamped concrete driveway at one of the spec houses that the interest in concrete and the things that could be done with it really started.  A few stamped concrete driveways later and the focus of the company changed and Danamac Concrete Systems came to life.

When we first started in the decorative concrete business our main projects were residential decks, walkways and driveways in stamped or stained concrete.

Throughout the years we have further refined our focus.  We have for the past few years found ourselves working on both commercial and residential projects.  We mainly do indoor concrete work with a large focus on polished concreteconcrete grinding and concrete overlays for interior floors.  In fact, we have not done an outdoor project in well over a year.

Since 1992 we have been refining our KNOWLEDGE of concrete and its properties.  Believe it or not, there is a lot to it!    We have been gaining EXPERIENCE in this field which enables us to trouble shoot projects to determine the best course of action for each situation.  We have also through the years acquired the EQUIPMENT that not only helps our crews to be able to complete the projects properly but also helps us be as efficient as possible.  The right tools for the job are very important.  KNOWLEDGE. EXPERIENCE and EQUIPMENT  all work together to ensure that Danamac lives up to the reputation that we have earned.  We continue to strive to ensure that each and every one of our projects is completed to meet and exceed expectations of the client.
