Installer: Paradise Masonry

Total Square Feet: 1,425
Where once there were two standard 10’ x 10’ concrete slabs, now lays this expansive backyard retreat. The team at Paradise Masonry transformed this once basic Strasburg, Pennsylvania backyard into an ideal spot for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. This 1,425 square foot job took Paradise Masonry 7 days to accomplish – from pouring the new slab to applying the finishing touches.
Before the concrete slab was poured they added Integral Color in order to achieve a base color. The concrete is then floated smooth. Once set, the concrete slab, while still workable for stamping, was broadcast with a thin, even coat of Powder Release (also available in 30 colors). This product not only adds depth of color to the slab but, as the name implies, assists in the easy release of the stamp. An added benefit to these SureCrete Design Products is that there are NO temperature or freeze/thaw restraints. The retaining wall was coated with Wall Spray with an Integral Color (available in 20 colors) and completed with a knockdown finish. The project was sealed with SureCrete Design’s HS 240 Premium Low VOC Clear Concrete Sealer to provide durable, water-proof, and UV protection for years to come.
