Decorative Stains

Artistic Statemens From Mild to Wild

Decorative Stains react with existing concrete to produce a patine or mottled natural stone look. You have the flexiblity to create a calming look of earth tones or a bold vibrant look with color.

Decorative staining any surface turns your plain concrete into our artistic canvas. In addition, you can combine stamping, decisiong scoring, polishing, and precast systems to create a beautiful, breathtaking finish to your surface.

Fiber Optics

Enhancing Your Countertop With Fiber Optics

Fiber Optics allow for Precast Systems to take a step further with creativity. Add a little sparkle or create an image to remember with Fiber Optics. In the image below, two photos show the sparkle of Fiber Optics. When you look at the third, you see something special.

The third image was designed to show a little family history. The countertop table was placed in the grandchildrens' room. The fiber optics outline the hands of all the grandchildren with a quarter in the center with his/her date of birth.

So many things can be added to create a customized piece just for you. All you have to do is think-out-of-the-box.

Cozy up to Concrete... What?!

Concrete Fireplaces

I personally love the look of concrete fireplaces. But there are many advantages to concrete when it comes to building/design your fireplace. Two of the top advantages would be design flexibility and ease of installation/make.

With concrete you can imitate a lot of the looks that would cost a lot more. For example you can imitate real stone work and limestone. You get the same look for less cost and more durability from the concrete.

Concrete fireplaces tend to also be a little easier to make and install in home. Each piece is precast to form and fit just right together for the space in your home.

These are just two samples of projects that were recently completed in a residential home in Prior Lake, MN. There are many more options to you. Just let us know what you like!
