Hey Guys,

I will be in AZ from May 14th through May 19th and back on the 20th. Things usually slow down a little bit for me the last week of any month so that would work great for me. Maybe we should schedule a day for the first week of June so it would give everyone time to prepare?

How does June 4th sound (Saturday)? We could meet in Ontario somewhere.

Just to let you know, I'm starting a Decorative Concrete Coatings business. I've been to the class and the 14th-19th I'm training the week in AZ. Contractor's license is being applied for and already have over 100 jobs booked thanks to a Home Show last month!

I know Carlos does coatings as well... it'd be nice to all get together and share ideas on everything we do, not just power washing but where the industry is heading, what's hot and how to make the most money/hour spent working so we can enjoy more time for OURSELVES.

Let's hear whatchyall think.

Scott,

I didn't realize you live in Mesa! My brother lives there but we only see each other about every 2 years... both have new families and man it's hard to go anywhere!

The training I went to was for Concrete Coatings Incorporated in Ogden, Utah. I wanted to "exchange free labor for knowledge" with a company who installs their products, so they recommended a company in Laughlin. I'll be staying at the AVI Resort and Casino.. don't know how far that is from you. We are going to start at 5:00AM and finish in the afternoon sometime. If we're close enough dinner would be great or if not maybe it'll just have to be at another time.

Concrete coatings are HOT right now.....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Craig...you said...concrete is very hot. I am attending a class up here in N. Calif at the end of the month. The topic will be acid staining with demos and etc. Concrete coating is big now and it seems that everybody is looking to do it. We color and stamp but have been hearing more and more people ask about coating.

I think Celeste does coating also.

June is cool with me about the meeting.

HOW ABOUT SATURDAY, JUNE 25TH?

This should give Jean some time to do whatever she thinks is necessary info to present to us, and will give the rest of us time to plan.

JUNE 25??

Hey Carlos,

Acid staining is just as hot as coatings are. I personally like the coatings (Modified Acrylic Cements) because they are flexible and move with the concrete, not against it like tile and stamping. They are almost 2x the strength of concrete and you can make it look like almost anything you want. Very diverse stuff.

I also like Elite-Crete's website but don't know anything about them. It looks like they do overlays, acid staining, acrylics.. the whole package. I might go to their training too just to see what it's all about.

Carlos,

go to ask.com and type in what you're looking for.

Celest- I have the brochure for both of those companies but the tools look pretty pricey! I forget what the initial investment was but I think it was more than 20 and less than 50K. Don't quote me on that..

Marbelite is another one but from what I hear it's a little less forgiving than other products and harder to work with.

I am not sure this is going to happen. I for one have not made plans to track down to S. Calif.. I have asked a couple times over the last couple of weeks for the location of the meeting place and etc but never really got an answer. I just figured we were all busy...

Looks like it is off for this weekend. No one grabbed the bull by the horns and found a place or time for us to meet. It was no one's obligation but someone who lives close to the meeting place (as close to the mall as we can get?) should set a time and date for us to get together. It's either that or let's just not do it. Let's get together or not get together.
