Looking for concrete floor coatings? SKIP the HOME SHOWS! 

Posted by Mike Mincemoyer on Feb 17, 2018 9:10:00 AM

Skip The Shows.pngEvery year the home builder and home remodeling/improvement shows are filled with more and more hot tub salespersons, knick-knack vendors and high pressure, "sign up today for a chance to win a free trip" gimmicks.  No wonder attendances fall every year and more shows cease.  No dealing with winter weather.  No fighting to find a place to park.

Posted by Mike Mincemoyer on May 10, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Stronghold Floors does not apply their coatings or sealers to pool decks.After 14 years, our in-ground swimming pool needed a new liner.  We had to drain the entire pool and this presented the perfect opportunity to seal the concrete deck that surrounds the entire pool.

When our swimming pool was first constructed, we were not in the concrete coatings business, so I didn’t know to do anything to the concrete.  The concrete deck around the pool was subjected to the normal wear and tear for any concrete sidewalk.  But, now that
