    Maybe some variation on this would work.

    Nobody even asked the obvious question. "Why the name change, Ned?"

    Re: Help with new company LOGO.......

    Hey Ned,
    Since you are a concrete guy.
    I had a patio poured with stamped concrete.
    I've read that some companies mix the color with all the concrete.
    The company that did mine just had the color in a thin layer on top.
    So after a winter, I got chips in the surface which showed the gey concrete underneath.
    So whats the norm?
    Did this company screw me over?

    Imo, you got screwed, but a lot of contractors are doing it. It's cheaper.

    Ever since guys started doing it this way I've been shaking my head. It doesn't make sense and looks rediculous, especially if they cut control joints into it.

    Here's the way I recommend. (pictures are a little crappy because it was before I had a digital camera)

    Dyed concrete straight from the redi-mix plant.

    Second color (release powder) sprinkled on top and then stamped.

    Cover with poly and spray off three days later and apply sealant.

    Finished product.

    Re: Help with new company LOGO.......

    a friend of mine was doing dyed and stamped work 9 - 10 years ago.

    he had a company Creative Concrete Design.. and made the molds for the stamps with a company called Hard Art i think..

    i helped him a bit with some designs from here in athens. I took some poly molds of some patterns here from the marble and sent him back about 5 years ago.

    it's a great idea!! and he's doing acid etching and custom designed counter tops now i think.

    i think..
    havn't spoken 2 him in years.

    He didn't really screw you, but he should have taken the time to explain the two different processes to you..






    Intragal
    (spelling?)
    is when the color is added to the concrete mix itself,
    this way the concrete is colored itself, so if chipping does happen, the base color is still there, this makes small chips and breaks less nocticable.






    Shake On,
    this is what he gave you and shake on actually only colors maybe the top 1/4 inch of concrete, so yes, if the chip is deep enough, you will get to the original, usually grayish in color, concrete..






    Depends also what he charged you. Shake On should be less expensive than intragal...






    Quick Fix, do a search on concrete stains and dyes.....There is products out there that my come close in color to your job, you could use a stain or dye to help hid the chiped areas....






    Another note, seeing you live in Wisconson, I'm sure you get your share of snow, if you are still using the patio during winter months, DO NOT put any kind of ice melt products on the patio or salt.
    Both are bad for and will damage the surface...Could cause further chiping and flaking.....If you have to, use a clean sand, no salt in the sand remember.....






    Note: Personaly, I won't do a job with shake on, just because of your issues.....
