Typical Surfaces: Trowel down has many residential and commercial applications and is perfect for pool decks, patios, steps and stairs, driveways, walkways, garages, floors and walls.


Trowel Down Slate

Trowel Down Slate is one of our most popular decorative coatings. It creates a very beautiful finish that is slip resistant, at a lower cost than traditional Stamp Overlay. Used in conjunction with our Eco-Stains, Trowel Down can be made in nearly any color combination you wish. Control joints or cracks in the existing concrete can be incorporated into the design to minimize their appearance.


Each Trowel Down project is unique. We will work with you to develop the perfect pattern, color, scoring and shapes in the design to create a surface custom tailored to your exact needs.


As with all decorative concrete finishes, proper preparation of the existing concrete is critical. We are meticulous about preparation ' grinding, polishing and cleaning the concrete before applying our finish. This is not "extra work", it is the key to a beautiful finish that will last many, many years.

    "The job" is fantastic and one of the neighbors actually has looked on your website and might contact you to do some work. Lots of people have commented already how great it looks - take all the pictures you want and tell people to call us for references. I'm even more impressed than I thought I would be.


    Thanks for doing such a great job - take all the time you need.

    First of all, let me say that the drive way looks great. It’s nice to work with people who take pride in doing a good job, and that is exactly what you did. Thank you.


    Enjoyed it and getting to know you. I'll throw any business I can your way.

    Good morning! Hope all is well with you.


    Our patio and porches continue to receive rave reviews from all who see them. I've made copies of your business card more times than I can count. Your work the best money I've spent on our house in a decade! Thank you for the fine work.

    I want to commend you for an excellent, over the top job on our pool deck, stairs, and upper patio!! Every promise you fulfilled and beyond. Your attitude friendly and professional. Your “trio” crew, amazing. Hard, faithful workers to all the job and special attention to details.


    Carol and I were and are grateful to meet you and to experience your business.

  • Ron and Jan Midura from Cornelius writes...

    I want to express to you and your crew my respect and admiration for the wonderful results you obtained on my upper and lower decks. You were presented some interesting challenges to say the least and the care you and your crew took with protecting my pool and house were truly appreciated by Jan and me. Your guys were not only very hardworking, but extremely professional as well. The results are clearly visible for all to see and Jan and I will be able to enjoy these outdoor living spaces far more now that you have worked your magic.

  • Matt from Lake Wylie writes... I don't often post feedback. However, when service, delivery and quality are exceptional, I must share. We are 100% delighted with the professionalism and the attention to detail of our pool resurfacing from Advanced Surface Solutions. It was obvious that they care and take great pride in the work - which is amazing.
