A Note from Owner, Brian I. Manzanares

At the age of 21, a friend introduced me to decorative concrete. Right away I fell in love. I realized the versatility of concrete. I could mold it into virtually anything. It could be colored a multitude of ways. It could be finely honed into a sleek, contemporary look or given an old world feel. The possibilities are endless. With my creative knack and using family patios and driveways as experiments, I decided to launch my business.

I established Deco-Crete in 2002. Since then I have been professionally trained by industry leaders from around the nation in various different applications from stained concrete to metallic epoxy coatings. I have obtained certifications with Elite-Crete Systems and D├╝raamen products through way of Elite Crete Headquarters, Gary Jones Master Artisan and Bob Harris Master Artisan. To this day, I have designed over one million square feet of decorative concrete and still further the education of my craft by attending various workshops throughout the year.

Deco-Crete offers affordable, proven & reliable solutions to concrete surfacing without the expense, mess and hassle of removing and replacing the existing concrete. Thanks to new advances, concrete is quickly redefining its role in the residential and commercial marketplace.

To better acquaint yourself with the possibilities of decorative concrete, please browse the services I offer and view my portfolio. I look forward to creating a work of art that is not only visually stunning, but will last you for many years to come. Thank you so much for your consideration.
