It's another hot sunny day somewhere around the Greenville area of the Upstate and you just want to sit out on your porch in a nice shaded area and relax with the family. Well there are a few ways you can create this great environment that will look great, be the 'go to' spot for your family, and have just enough shade that won't force everyone to just want to go inside. A beautiful pergola with a fan on top of a Kool Deck © decorative concrete patio is one of the ways you can create this ideal environment.
I know what you may be thinking..."That's not really concrete!" They must have used photoshop on this to make it look so real!
Sorry to say your wrong, but "You're wrong!" It's okay though, many have been fooled. Click the photo to enlarge if you don't believe us. This is concrete! We are one of the few concrete contractors that are capable of doing this type of concrete flooring here in the Upstate of South Carolina.
This is one of our famous wood simulations that we do for customers who want the look of wood without the hassle, expense, and short lifespan risk that comes with installing wood outside near the pool or even inside your basement.
The material we use is perfect for almost any condition, because it is oil, rust, and mildew resistant. Perfect for the moist conditions of a basement or for the constant use of an outdoor pool house.
We're not prone to brag about our work, but we are proud of the detail we put into our work. Check out the detail in this job we did in Greenville near Pelham Rd. on the top left. See that screw in the wood floor? I mean that simulation of a screw in the concrete floor!!!
We believe we are the best concrete contractor you will find in the Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, or anywhere in the Upstate. Let us give you a free estimate and show you why we are different!
Here’s an indoor overlay concrete job we did out in Pelzer, SC. These earth tone colors with the high gloss concrete floor coating requested gives the appearance and feel of a real marble like surface. With two coats of sealer used we can ensure this interior surface shouldn't need to be resealed in less than 10 years, even with a high amount of traffic. Like always we guarantee the first 5 years under warranty for all overlay on outdoor and indoor flooring.
We created a design with 36 x 36 tile simulation with our overlay concrete material matching the customers specific color request. This same project would have cost the customer an unreasonable amount to try and find the exact matching tile and size, not to mention the cost of installation. As you can see from the picture the flooring turned out beautiful and matched the color the customer desired
As you can see in the pictures the detail in the texture and color is phenomenal!! Highlighting again our attention to detail!
Imagine yourself about to leave from home and its pouring down rain outside. You pull out from under your garage and attempt to go up your concrete driveway and all of sudden you begin to slide back down the hill. You begin to hear your wheels skidding in place and you give it a little gas, but you are getting little traction. What could be causing this dangerous incident that you have never experienced before, even in weather like this?
This was our clients unfortunate scenario from another concrete contractors work. Unique Concrete Design LLP was called in by this client in order to address this problem that needed an immediate solution. We completed this beautiful driveway
in the Cliffs and included the necessary prep work and detailed finish that addressed the problem our client was having. We used our spray coat design adding a layer of concrete material that is mixed polymer and acrylic that provide more than enough texture to give traction for any vehicle to safely go up and down this incline.
Along with this we did a two tone design with a flag stone border at the front of the concrete driveway. We used forest green colors with a touch of reddish brown that reflect the beautiful scenery that makes this home so attractive. As always this job gets the 5 year warranty standard with most of our jobs, but with our attention
to detail this job will last well past 5 years into the lifetime of the property.
Here’s a nice size concrete job we did in Anderson, South Carolina, which is just southwest of Greenville. It highlights our attention to detail that we place on our resurfacing jobs. As you can see from our sketch the customer approved, we began to draw a design that opened up the space outside within the enclosure and along the side of the house to create an oasis.
In order to do this we created a leveled design that would require forming two levels of retaining walls made out of concrete. We also wanted to connect the walkway along the side of the house with the back enclosure to have a continuous design for people to feel as they entered. We used a slate design in order to create the retaining walls.
Along with this we built a wall fence with decorative concrete wall pillars. As you can see Jose in the picture hand chiseled the blocks on the pillars symmetrically as if there were actual blocks used to make the pillar. “Attention to detail” is a phrase we take very seriously at Unique Concrete Design LLP. With the walkway and the slate pattern overlay around the pool deck we used gray and tan colors along the wall also to tie everything in. The texture along this surface was semi ruff in order to prevent major slips when people walk around this swimming pool, but to also add dimension for the color.
We poured a good amount of flat concrete and then went back over much of it to add the texture and overlay patterns that we are known for instead of doing stamped concrete which many other companies choose to
do. We also included a coat of sealer in order to hold in the color and texture of the concrete.
This beautiful job took place out in Anderson, South Carolina where we poured a free format patio with a bench to connect the back porch with the existing pool. Prior to our arrival the customer had a nice yard with a pool, but any time after it rained this nice grassy yard wasn't ideal for walking across to the pool for friends or family.
With their idea and our design we were able to continue the existing stone pattern of the home and create a patio that looks as if it came with the purchase of the home. Within this patio bench we added soft lighting to provide a great environment for night fall events. We also did the stone work on the bench that extends out to the pool, which follows the stone pattern that came on the rest of the house. On this same bench we included cool deck stones to cover on the top of the bench so that during the summertime anyone can sit without the fear of being burned. This cool deck material is one of our signature details you’ll get when we design a decorative concrete surface for you.
Here is one of our past jobs that we are very proud of. On occasions when a customer has an idea to create something we must go to the drawing board in order to take their idea and create a design that is not just nice, but also feasible. Here you can see a sketch of the design that was exactly what the customer was looking for.
In this particular design we poured the concrete into oval shapes and added a step down area for a fire pit. Many times we deal with customers that have an existing concrete, where we simply prep that concrete and pour our special material on top in order to do a design, but here we had to start from scratch. Pouring this concrete was an easy task, but design for framing this concrete was done by scratch. Jose, the owner of the company, and his men made it happen with little complications.
After pouring the concrete design we begin to use an acrylic concrete material that goes on top of the concrete adding more than 3x the amount of strength in the concrete. We then begin to add the stone like designs by hand and shape the unique designs of the fire pit and grill locations according to the customers choice.
Afterwards we create a color sample for the customer to see in order to get the exact color match unique to their liking. From this color sample we color the entire patio and all the stones with the match. We then finish off the job with a nice sealer to protect it from wear and tear.
