Paun Family Home

The Paun family has been in the concrete and masonry business all their lives. They built a low maintenance house, using concrete throughout.

The producer met with the family about doing stained concrete floors in the basement, which is set up as a party and bar area.

The owners were not sure what colors they wanted to use in the lower level so the contractor sampled 7 different water-based color stains.

The applications to achieve this beautiful floor took a number of steps.

  1. Clean the floor with Solomon Neutral
  2. Use a black pad buffer to open up the
  3. Stain the floor with Artesian water-base walnut
  4. Seal the slab with a poly-Aztec
  5. Put on two coats of floor

The floor turned out beautiful with crazing in the concrete highlighted. The lower level provides a space for fun and relaxation with the added bonus of being low maintenance.

What a testament to the use of concrete!
