We were contacted by a local general contractor in Camarillo for this job. The contractor had finished a ton of work on the clients' house and, to tie it all up, they wanted a professional decorative concrete contractor to stain the exterior hardscape. That's where we came in! The patio was in great shape, other than the fact that it had lost all of its original coloring. They had different bits of stamped concrete all around their house, but we were able to make the colors consistent throughout! After they saw the stain on their stamped concrete, the clients wanted us to also stain their front porch, which was a traditional, old smooth concrete. We've decided to make a separate post for the front porch because it came out so great! Job Location CA 93012...

This patio and driveway were previously stained and sealed, but either with low-quality materials or by a sub-optimal contractor. In any case, the owner of this beautiful home in the Pacific Palisades wanted to re-stain the floor and make it as good looking as the rest of the property. We advised him to get the floor sandblasted prior to our staining, in order to remove all of the previously applied sealer and to give the whole floor the same even texture. The sandblasting, however, wasn't in his budget and he didn't want to deal with the possibility of a mess that many sandblasting contractors make. So we stained the concrete as it is and sealed it with a high-quality Brickform sealer. We don't recommend using this approach if you have the option not to, but the job still came out looking great. And by the way, the sandblasting contractor we work with is the best in all LA county - Mike from Superior Sandblast. If you need his services, give us a call and we'll connect you!

The owner of this beautiful home in Calabasas had a stamped concrete pool deck which was originally yellowish but was now fading. After pressure washing it and prepping it thoroughly, the color completely vanished. So they wanted a color to complement their salmon-colored house. We did our best, and although they had a couple of different slabs of concrete, we were able to match everything up. The owner was pleased and is awaiting an estimate on staining their driveway as well. We can hardly receive a better compliment! Job Location CA 91302...

The patio of this beautiful house was cracked, and the owner had just replaced his pool and his deck. He wanted a gray mottled- look, but he didn't want the texture that comes with our sprayed mottled-look designs. So we had to use stains. However, the challenge with stains is that they don't really create that much color variation for the gray shades. We had to use several colors of stains, along with some additional trickery, to create this. Job Location CA 93063...
