Home Improvements Generally

Concrete & Concrete Coatings

Docks, Decks, & Boathouses

Home Improvement: Dock Repair

The property owners reside in The Point fronting on Lake Norman. As the owner of a real estate development and commercial construction management firm the property owner could have selected and relied upon any number of local dock experts. Upon my initial onsite inspection the existing dock needed a spring cleaning and structural work. Three dock stringers were reinforced and ramp glides were removed and replaced. Rope rail post were tightened and rope replacd. Rail caps were replaced. The resulting dock repair potentially extends the use and enjoyment of the existing dock structure many years.

Home Improvement: Concrete Coating

The property owners requested the removal of an existing wood deck in order to place and finish a spacious concrete patio. The irrigation controller was reinstalled. Four specimen trees receive stack block.

The property owner resides in a local Waterlynn residential home community in Mooresville.  Upon initial inspection, the existing concrete surfaced were pitted, cracked, and the color was worn out. A double coating of acid wash and back to back pressure-washing removed substantial surface blemishes, mold, and other organic crud. The cracks were filled with a cementitous filler. Two coats of custom color concrete coating gives a desirable appearance of a new concrete surface while avoiding a far more costly surface grinding.
