  What are the CenturyStone Concrete Coatings?
They are high performance concrete product systems designed for repairing and restoring concrete surfaces and structures, including a crack repair system, that, collectively, has evolved into a variety of decorative coatings and patterns for pool decks, patios, driveways, garage floors as well as heavy-duty industrial applications for warehouse floors and parking garages.

What is it made of?
CenturyStone Concrete Coatings are made up of a variety of components but the backbone of the system is a Polymer Modified Concrete base that promotes a high bond strength and extreme durability.

What is Polymer Modified Concrete?
Polymer Modified Concrete is a concrete mixture (meaning it has cement, sand and aggregate) that has been modified with acrylic polymer additives to give it its high strength and its exceptional bonding properties.

How strong is it?
Generally speaking it has twice the strength of concrete. A concrete mixture designed to yield 3,000 psi (pounds per square inch) will yield over 6,000 psi if modified by an acrylic polymer additive. It will double the strength of any concrete mix design. However, CenturyStone cures out to over 6,000 psi in only 3 days, and 9,000 psi (compression strength) in 28 days.

How is it applied?
CenturyStone Concrete Coatings are applied by trowel, squeegee or broom depending on the nature of repair and desired finish.

What can it be applied to?
Most systems can be applied to concrete, asphalt, wood, tile and stone. It can generally be applied to any stable sub-base regardless of its composition. (In other words, it can bond to almost anything).

In what weather can it be applied?
Warm weather is the best for application as it will have a faster curing time. However, all systems can be applied in most any weather (except direct rain).

Does Coastal Concrete Designs own a patent for these systems?
No. The technology used for these systems is not new. In fact, similar applications (i.e. concrete patching and decorative coatings) can be done by other specialty contractors and applicators.

It looks like ‘Kool Deck’, is it ‘Kool Deck’?
No. Kool Deck is a brand name for a pool deck coating which must be applied to fresh, uncured concrete and cannot be installed on existing, cured concrete

What makes Coastal Concrete Designs' CenturyStone Concrete Coatings unique?
1) Because we formulate our own acrylic resin, we can control the quality and make adjustments to the formula as the weather, temperature, humidity and other factors change throughout the year, from season to season.
2) Our crews are experienced in various areas of concrete repair and crack repair as well as being individually trained for each decorative application.
3) Each system was painstakingly perfected to achieve the most natural look of brick, tile, marble and stone (we have been known to fool brick masons and tile setters. Who should know better?). We are constantly striving to improve and create new beautiful finishes with the quality and durability that we are known for.
4) WARRANTY. The best in the business, guaranteed.

Coastal Concrete Designs didn’t pioneer this industry but we are reinventing it each day.
