Cleaning and Preparation

Preparation is the most critical step in any decorative concrete installation process. We repeat: preparation is critical. That’s why we have invested so much into researching and developing the highest quality solutions used to clean and prepare your concrete. Using NewLook’s preparation solutions will enable you to remove most any coating, dirt, grease or foreign substance that could inhibit the penetration of our decorative coatings and their bond with concrete. However, the performance of decorative coatings is dependent upon the condition of the concrete so effort should be made to ensure that your concrete is suitable.
