Howdy folks! I want to start this blog post by saying it has been a beautiful year, and thank you to all our customers for supporting foxcrete over the years!
This Project spotlight is for a customer by the name of Al Simmons. A close friend of ours recommended us to him to replace his driveway. I wish I could have got some before and after photos, however it just slipped my mind! His driveway pretty much required a off road vehicle to climb to the top! Needless to say! The old concrete driveway had to go!
This is a project we complete a couple months ago! and WOW. We are
extremely proud of this one! Our customer gave us full creative ownership
on this project! When we have a customer that respects our profession and
doesn't put artistic sanctions on our ability, it makes for a great project!!!
So, a huge thank you to the McCollum's for allowing us to have such a pleasant work environment!
This project started with simple phone call.
It has been awhile since my last blog! Sorry about that! I suppose life
Marriage, children and all the above has put the blog on the back
Well, lets jump straight into it! The last couple years, last year
in particular, we have grew tremendously as a company and acquired some
great contacts in the process! The project I am highlighting in this blog
business with and is a honest pool builder with integrity.
Decorative Concrete Tuscan Slate Tile Design In Lillian, Alabama
We completed this project a couple weeks ago for a Retired Law Enforcement Officer.
They were looking for aconcrete coating that is slip resistant and pleasant to look at. We suggested our Tuscan Slate Tile . We decided on a dark base coat(charcoal) for the grout
lines. In their brick they had dark accents that I wanted to bring out to pull everything
together. After the base coat we put down our tile design.
I don't know about you guys, but I am enjoying this cool weather we are having!
As always though, it is going to get frigid cold an I will be wishing for summer again real shortly!
Although, on the plus side of winter, the waves in the Gulf get really good for surfing; I suppose then it is a trade off!
On my free time when I am not working(which seems few and far between) Surfing is somewhat of a stress reliever!
November is a big month for my Fiance' Ashley and I, as we will be expecting our first child together!
Well this weeks project turned out absolutely phenomnal!!!
Having wonderful clients is what makes my job so great!!
She was great to work with, and knew exactly what she wanted!!
Well on to the application!
Our client was innitally wanting tile, but her deposition to tile was the moss, algae, etc that cover
our concrete here on the gulf coast! She didn't want to have to fight to keep it clean!
Well our solution to her was to give her Decorative Concrete that simulates tile!
Hey guys, been awhile since our last post!
We have been busy, busy!!( Knock on wood)

Well, We have been out of town for the past couple weeks working with our sister company Techne Concrete!
I am absolutely enjoying myself out here in Hot Springs, Arkansas "The Spa CIty". This past week I have been working
on the lake and it has been AWESOME! Weather has been phenomenal! In between working we have made a point to
get out and go fishing and try to catch "Big Al". Out here they have a promotion going on where they have tagged
various fish. If you catch one of the fish they are worth anywhere between 100.
Hey guys and gals!
Just wanted to talk about a new product we now offer!
We now install Concrete wood floors!
I have been hearing a lot of positive feed back on them so far!
The product total is roughly an 1/8" inch thick and has the look of the real deal!
It is not a stamped texture, they are handcrafted and stained!
Very durable, do not have to worry about rotting and replacing!
It goes over your existing concrete patio, sidewalk, garage, walkway, interior floor, etc!
This weeks project was a Flagstone overlay out in Satsuma, Alabama.
They had old concrete that was all cracked up and to be frank, It has seen better days.
The grout was colored with with chocolate buff, and the stones was colored with Desert Beige.
It was then stained with Charcoal and Chocolate.
Weather has got the best of us here lately!
Here is a couple pictures of our last few projects.
Here is a Reflector Enhancer colored with Gun Metal and Titanium.
Owner wanted a real "wild"
looking floor! So that is what we gave them! Turned out awesome.
Our latest project was a Slate Trowel Down. We colored it with Chocolate, Palomino, and Chocolate Buff.Our homeowners on this project were exceptionally great! We had a great time on this one!
This type of texture is great for patios, sidewalks, walk ways, patios, and even inside your home!
Slate trowel Down on a 1500sq.ft Pool Deck in Mobile, Alabama!
This one was a ton of fun! The weather gave us fits, it rained every chance it got at the worst possible time!
They originally had some latex paint on the surface, because it had a heavy broom finish it was a chore to remove
the paint! We did it with a couple of 7 inch cup wheel grinders and some good ole elbow grease to get it clean! ( a
broom finish is the type of texture they put on the surface when they poured the original pool deck.
Cracks cracks cracks.. There is two kinds of concrete, concrete that has cracked, and concrete that will crack.
Let's talk about pool decks! They are notorious for cracks. But why?
Inside your pool is not the only place that must not leak! A little preventive maintenance will go a long way in
preserving the life of your pool deck. Upon having you pool deck installed, did the contractor install caulk in the joints?
If you answered no, then you are at a serious risk of major cracking!
