Here at Webfoot Concrete Coatings we get a lot of questions about the longevity and versatility of our concrete flooring solutions. Some of the questions we get asked include:
“Are concrete coatings long-lasting?”
“Are concrete coatings durable?”
“Can concrete coatings be used in an interior space?”
The answer to all of these questions is: yes!
In fact, our concrete coatings are so reliable and versatile that they were recently used in an enclosure to house otters. Yes—cute, playful, water-dwelling otters! Make no mistake, our broadcasted chip concrete coatings are definitely up to the task. But before we get into talking about why our concrete coatings work so well for animal enclosures and other interior spaces, let’s talk a bit about our client—the High Desert Museum.
Located near Bend, Oregon, the High Desert Museum has been home to many Pacific Northwestern wonders and objects from surrounding areas since 1982. This includes Native American artifacts, a weathered stagecoach wagon, and a few United States Forest Service items and archives. The museum also is home to several different animal species including birds of prey, tortoises, otters, snakes, frogs and fish.
When the High Desert Museum came to us in need of an update to their otter habitat, we were more than excited to lend a hand. At Webfoot Concrete Coatings we love animals and are always interested in helping out our furry friends.
As you can imagine, providing adequate care for an animal that is both land and water dwelling poses more than a few challenges. The enclosure needed to be impervious to water and sharp claws while remaining safe for caretakers to clean and sanitize. The biggest challenge with this kind of project is turnaround time as animals need to be in their habitats to thrive and feel comfortable. We like to think this is why the High Desert Museum chose to work with us on this project; unlike inferior concrete coatings products, or epoxy, our concrete coating is completely dry in just 48 hours. Our installation process is simple and efficient and takes just 24 hours from start to finish. Some of the additional advantages that the best concrete coatings products boast include:
Impervious to cleaning agents and chemicals
Resistant to abrasions from paws and claws
UV stable - won’t fade from being exposed to changes in temperature or sunlight
Low VOCs - no lingering odors make them ideal for use indoors
Won’t crack or chip
Warrantied for 15 years
Our affordable concrete coatings are also great for use on pool decks, porches, patios, play rooms, garages, weight rooms, hobby rooms and more.
