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
is a Stamped Concrete Pool Deck for James Tindle Pools. Great company to
business with and is a honest pool builder with integrity. Which, is why
we have accepted their business with open arms. This Vinyl Liner Pool is
installed in Summerdale, Alabama.
The pool was spec'd out to have Stegmeier Forms. Which is a special
foam form board that allows you to have various shaped Concrete Coping.
The colors used in this project were provided by Alabama Pigment Company.
Dove Grey Integral Color, and Pewter Powder Release. A common question or
concern with any colored concrete is after the initial placement. In most
cases the concrete is darker and not the color they were wanting from the
color chart; Do not panic! This is very normal! As I am sure you have seen
with and driveway or patio, they turn very light and in some cases almost
white! Well colored concrete goes through the same stages. After 45 days, the color will "Bleach" out to the color closer to the provided Chart.
This is especially important when pouring grey concrete Pool Decks Such as the one featured in this blog. It is initially very hot until the color
bleaches out in 45 days.
After placing and stamping, the next process is to install the Cure and Seal. This seals the surface and allows the surface to be cleaned easily, make the color POP, and allow the concrete to slowly cure. It works in a similar manor as watering your concrete slab! I am proud to say this
project turned out very nice and I am anxious to see it fully cured!
Thank you to James Tindle for inviting us out on this project!
