Most of the time foundation walls are hidden underground as unseen support for a structure, but, as in the case of this walk-out basement, they may end up a nondescript surround. The owners of this home, located in a suburb of South Chicago, wanted to enhance the look of their outdoor patio area. They turned to Concrete Paramedics, of the Chicago land area, to reinvent the protruding foundation walls that paralleled their patio. The plain walls were covered to have the look of flagstone to compliment the natural surroundings. The team at Concrete Paramedics chose SureCrete’s Vertical Coatings to complete this three day project.
Sure Spray, an easy to use (just add water) product, was used as a base coat for this foundation wall. For the custom flagstone look, Concrete Paramedics taped off each section for a freeform feel. The Sure Spray coating was then covered with SureCrete Wall Spray, also an easy to use product that offers outstanding resistance to environmental changes. The use of a textured stamp gave each “stone” more dimension and the skillful application of an environmentally safe concrete stain called Eco-stain, provided each stone a more natural appearance. SureCrete HS-340 Premium Low VOC Acrylic Concrete Sealer provides this reinvented wall with added protection and ease of maintenance.
