About Skraffino Decorative Concrete Flooring
Skraffino is a thin concrete coating that is applied by trowel resulting in a sandstone finish. It is smooth with subtle variation. As a result it is ideal for topical stains and dyes producing a marblized appearance. It can be applied directly over concrete, self leveling concrete, wood, tile and formica. It can be applied vertically and has been used for walls, countertops and interior of showers.
In this project it was used to resurface a basement floor that was in rough shape. After completing the surface prep process, 3 coats of Skraffino were applied using the first coat in our regular grade followed by 1 coat of fine and a final coat using super fine. After the coats were dry, Burlywood, a light brown earth tone dye was applied. As you can see in the final photo, the result looks like a natural granite/marble appearance.
To complete the project and protect the surface, water based sealers were applied. The sealers provide long term protection while enhancing the visual appearance of the floor.
