    Capstone Granite on Various Retaining Wall Projects

    Posted by Crooked Creek Ventures LLC on 5th Dec 2022

    You guys rock! As an owner of several hillside investment properties, I have had several projects in the past few years involving new poured concrete and existing masonry block retaining walls needing a decorative and protective coating system. I had concerns regarding adhesion, color retention, durability and also wanted a green environmentally friendly coating to work with. Their team listened to my jobsite descriptions - looked at my photos of the proposed work - then recommended specific surface prep and application considerations for my projects in addition to the Application Guides available. As a result of their jobsite specific recommendations, their guidance afforded me the opportunity to improve how I installed drainage systems on one of the two projects behind the hillside retaining walls. I completed the first project in the summer of 2020 then moved ahead with the second in the summer of 2021 after reviewing the first project's performance over all four seasons here in Southern Oregon. Both projects are performing very well after their respective one and two years of exposure with excellent adhesion, color retention, and durability. A major plus is the finished appearance of the multicolor finish. It has the appearance of sandblasted granite without the expense! I'm glad I took a few minutes to photograph my jobsites and ask their knowledgeable staff a few questions before getting started! I know time = money and the Ames Team helped me save both while improving the results beyond my expectations! Feel free to have any of your customers give me a call. You have my phone number on file.

    Excellent concrete floor coating!

    Posted by Nolan Fridley, Fridley Custom Homes on 1st Dec 2022

    As a builder in the PNW we have installed several different concrete floor coatings. This product was simple to install and saves time compared to the more complex epoxy systems on the market. We were very happy with the final result and I will definitely be using this in the future. It's helpful to know that this company shares the same values for quality and service that our company does. Highly recommend it!
