Concrete engraving lasts the life of the concrete. The process consists of picking the patterns or templates required and mechanically engraving them into the surface of the concrete. Stain is applied either prior to or after the pattern or template is engraved. The engraving cuts can also be stained to add definition to the pattern. Finally the entire area is washed and then sealed by using either solvent or water-based sealers or a clear epoxy coat. Sacrificial coats of either floor finish or poly-urethane can be added to further protect the artwork. For exterior projects a non-skid additive is added to the sealer to enhance traction for moist conditions as any sealers on concrete can make the surface slick when wet.
