Looking for concrete floor coatings? SKIP the HOME SHOWS! 

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

Be sure your next contractor is properly licensed and insured.MIKE (Stronghold Floors):   "I was having a conversation with our insurance agent Bill about licensing for Home Improvement Contractors (HIC) in different states where we work.

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
