E-Crete Decorative Concrete
Brooks and I are so excited about some new techniques he learned last week at the International Decorative Artisans League conference in Memphis. Or as I called it his, "faux conference", which makes it sound like a fake conference which it is not, well I digress. Anyway, I'll be writing about some of the new treatments he has learned. Today I'd like to tell you about a product called E-Crete. Concrete finishes are all the rage across the country and especially where we live in Franklin, TN. The developers of E-crete have come up with a formula that is perfect for installation by decorative painters. We are now certified installers of E-CRETE decorative concrete. E-CRETE is a lightweight patented mix of marble and limestone combined with white Portland cement and polymer chemistry. The result is a versatile array of products that combine to offer a wide range of decorative finishing solutions for counter tops, floors, walls, ceilings, furniture, exterior patios and pool decks. The product is completely waterproof and can be used in place of tile in showers, tubs and back splashes. This environmentally friendly product is ZERO VOC and qualifies for LEED credits. You can resurface existing laminate, wood or tile counter tops for a fraction of the cost of granite or stone and keep your old counter tops out of the landfill. Don’t go to through the mess, expense and waste of removing old tile in your bathroom, we can install E-CRETE right over top of your existing tile surface.
