Benefits of Concrete Finishes
There are several types of concrete finishes that are typically used for commercial and industrial facilities. The choice of finish type often depends on interior or exterior location, along with the environmental conditions that impact the concrete surface. Each type of finish offers distinct benefits.
For concrete decks that are dull, stained and showing signs of wear, concrete polishing services are an exceptional choice, which make decks look new. The process of polishing concrete doesn’t require extensive remodeling. An environmentally friendly procedure, it uses no synthetic products or elaborate chemicals, but still results in a gleaming, fresh new look for your concrete floor that’s easy to clean and maintain.
A clear finish coating can also be applied to concrete floors or decks to achieve a high-gloss look. This type of coating provides excellent protection, as it helps protect against spilled chemicals or other corrosive substances to seep into the concrete.
Our Concrete Finish Services
Several factors can influence the strength of concrete and the ease of applying the finish. Our team of concrete finish experts at Raider Painting understands the different types of concrete finishes and can recommend the correct one for your project. In addition, our team will help you choose the best aggregates, and we’ll work out the proper ratios to ensure required slip coefficients, along with the durability and style of the concrete finish.
Our team performs the following exterior concrete finishes and more:
Elastomeric coatings have superior waterproofing capabilities and are often used for exterior concrete surfaces and decks. These highly elastic coatings can bridge cracks in concrete and keep them from expanding while preventing seepage. They can also expand and contract in extreme temperatures along with the substrate while retaining their original shape.
Anti-Skid, Traffic & Broadcast Deck Coatings
This type of finish is best suited for parking areas, pool decks, balconies and other high-traffic areas. This type of coating creates a slip-resistant surface that can prevent cracks and other surface imperfections that can cause accidents at home or in the production area. In addition, this coating improves the aesthetics of decks and other surfaces while providing a durable skid-proof floor.
Decorative Concrete Finishes
This type of finish adds form and function to your facility. Many decorative concrete finishes are often used for pool decks, patios and outdoor areas. Consider this type of concrete finish in areas needing UV protection and waterproofing. It produces an upscale appearance while incorporating durable resins.
We recommend anti-static finishes for production floors with networking hardware, laboratory tools and other sensitive manufacturing equipment. Static electricity builds up through atmospheric conditions and foot traffic, which can damage electronics. Anti-static finishes prevent static electricity discharge, providing essential protection for your production equipment.
Polyurethane & UV Protective Coatings
UV light makes paint and other finishes look dull and old, making them prone to cracking and peeling. Our team can apply polyurethane and UV protective coatings to protect the base coat applied to industrial and commercial surfaces. These coatings create an attractive shine while offering a degree of water resistance.
Exposed Aggregate Finish
The aggregate is exposed with this type of finished concrete, creating a natural look on the surface. It’s non-slip, making it a safe finish for work areas that often get wet and slippery. It’s a combination of an attractive and functional material for your commercial or industrial center. We recommend it for exterior decks, sidewalks and breezeways.

Concrete Densifier/Block Filler
Concrete densifiers cover the top surface of concrete floors, filling holes in the process. The densifier also fuses with the surface’s sand and other inert compounds, creating a tight bond. In effect, the fusion produces a higher surface density improving the concrete floor’s abrasion resistance.
