Concrete is the oldest man made building material. Used throughout the ancient world it still stands today in many of those structures and that fact got me to thinking and investigating more deeply into its use, methods and mixes. My research was really sparked when watching a documentary on Pompeii when researchers uncovered ruins of concrete floors and plaster walls fully intact under layers of thick volcanic ash still vibrantly colored as the day they were installed. I thought to myself, there is no linoleum or carpet that would withstand such circumstances. The craftsmanship and detail that was evident in these structures was astounding, they were works of art, worthy of preservation.
In a throw away world where we are there is an obvious need to be concerned about waste, why not build for keeps? Why choose a material with a 5,10 or 15 year warranty when you can choose a product with a 20, 25 or 50 year or even 100 year life span? The only thing that affects concrete is erosion, maintenance in minemal, occasional sealer, depending on the surface and we are happy to educate you.
Now lets talk about health and environmental benifits. Concrete is hypo allergenic. We use concrete on the interior of homes because if you have allergies this is the best surface to use a floor. We use water based sealers with No VOC's, high grade commercial, two part with a wax coat on top, you will not have to seal again for several years, wax once or twice a year and you are good to go! A maintenance free floor. Did you that concrete does something call CARBON CAPTURE? That means that concrete over the life of the concrete captures carbon dioxide out of the air, more so than plants! So as you exhale, the concrete is absorbing the carbon dioxide, isn't that amazing?? We have known that about plaster walls for decades, now that we have confirmed that about concrete, I believe it will change the way we build homes. This is why we have been building with concrete floors and plaster walls, healtier homes, for healthier lives!
Carbon Capture, you're going to hear about it!

Our experience has been in single family as well as multi-family residental. We have built several apartment buildings as well as Sunserra resort at Cresent Bar. We also built SunSerra's restaurant and club house, the Blue Bell Cafe, the Flower Basket, Eternal Paws, and many more.
In the last several years as we have increased our skills in concrete and epoxy artistry we have ventured into the arena of themed design in both residental and commercial applications which has been very exciting. The central basin is growing and with that the opportunities for travel and tourism. As builders, we feel its important to offer clients the best products and services that are both on trend and value. Concrete artistry is just that, the best value and certainly on trend. We can create entire worlds out of scratch with nothing more than trowels, mix, stain and lots of imagination, just think Disneyland! There is really nothing that brings us more joy than watching a clients face when they see a project completed and it's more than they imagined. And yes, we have a list of them!
