A Decorative Concrete Success at World of Concrete 2014

World of Concrete was a huge success this year! Our concrete slab came together really well with the help of our manufacturers and customers. It was a 5 day process to complete all the steps — applying the epoxy, laying the terrazzo, applying the overlay, grinding and polishing, applying intricate stencils and protecting and sealing the surface. With this said, we would love to give you insight on how we accomplished this feat. See the photo gallery below for the final result, and continue reading for more information on products used. Also, check out our YouTube channel for step-by-step videos.


Theme Inspiration

The Super Bowl/football theme for this year’s World of Concrete booth was the brain child of both Wendy Runyon-Ricker and her brother Jack Runyon – figureheads in the company, and creative ones at that. The idea initially stemmed from a general football field slab to the incorporation of Super Bowl team logos in the middle of the slab, then to the tailgates, and from there the featured customer hall of fame stories and booklet, all the signage, etc.

Our Featured Artist: Floormap Stencil Designs

As mentioned, Floormap Stencil Designs did the Seahawks and Broncos stencils in the middle of our slab, and they did a fabulous job! Each stencil was three layers — making for an incredibly intricate pair of logo designs. Rachel Bruce is the artist who designed the custom stencils, and she was the one who actually applied them at World of Concrete.

It has been an exciting year for Floormaps as it enters its fifth year in the decorative concrete industry. It has tackled new products, such as vinyl stencils, as well as new surfaces i.e. polished wood floors, walls, ceilings, murals, banners and signs. New training courses will be issued quarterly to demonstrate the wealth of knowledge accumulated from hands on installations and experimentation. Floormaps is also proud to announce the opening of international sales to Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America.
