Concrete is a building material known for its quality, durability and sustainability but not necessarily for its beauty. Nawkaw’s innovations in staining technologies and finishing techniques have turned the page on the aesthetics of concrete. Your concrete building can boast authentic finishes regardless of the form pattern used in construction. At Nawkaw we have pioneered techniques that allow us to achieve natural wood or stone tones, the cool sheen of metal, or more innovative finishes from the existing spectrum of vivid colors.
Nawkaw’s innovations have turned the page on the aesthetics of concrete.
Whether precast, tilt-up, or cast-in-place concrete Nawkaw’s color treatments breathe life into new construction projects. Public spaces, downtown high-rise buildings, museums, government buildings, parking decks, and highway sound barriers are just a few examples of concrete structures transformed by Nawkaw.
Staining to correct integrally colored concrete
Consistency is key for producing high-quality integrally colored concrete. But sometimes mistakes happen or blemishes occur due to damage during shipment, installation, or by mistakes from other trades. Matching colors for patching or other necessary repairs can be a difficult endeavour and if not done properly, can leave buildings with eye-catching imperfections. Corrective staining beautifies the finished product, saves replacement costs and has even eliminated pending arbitration between contractors, suppliers, building owners and architects on major new commercial concrete construction projects in the UK, Dubai, Canada and the US.
Color Equalization services
Sometimes our services are only needed for a portion of a building or on individual panels. Nawkaw has the expertise to focus on a specific problem areas and to blend out the variance where necessary. By harmonizing the color of a building, Nawkaw can help mitigate your potential losses due to rejected panels.
Did your building get tagged? Oftentimes graffiti leaves behind shadow or residue after its removal. Nawkaw offers graffiti removal services that ensure you will forget the vandalism ever took place. Our list of satisfied clients for this service includes public schools, universities, and city government.
Cleaning and surface preparation
Surface preparation is just as important as the application of our stain products, as any residual materials, or even dirt, can create a barrier between the stain and the substrate to be treated. At Nawkaw we only use the highest quality products. From site preparation, necessary equipment rentals, hot and cold concrete or masonry cleaning, onsite training and safety, to clean up and disposal of materials, we take care of it all.
