Deco-Systems Inc. is a Decorative Concrete Company that was established in 1992, as a division of the Maxwell Remodeling Company. We started with a primary purpose of researching decorative finishes, not only in concrete, but also interior surface finishes. At the time, there was little known in the Washington Metropolitan area about these finishes. Deco-Systems began by sending a team to Florida for training in stamped concrete and spray decking systems. At that time, the few companies in the area that provided stamped concrete services focused all of their sales toward commercial projects and high-end home owners - with minimum charges too high for the average home owner.
In late 1992, Deco-Systems launched an advertising program to educate the local consumer about what stamped concrete really was. We developed a unit-cost system that made the product less profitable, but affordable to most home owners. At the same time we discarded the usual spray decking overlay system, as the resins were not strong enough to survive the local frost and thaw cycle.
In 1996, Deco-Systems became incorporated as a self-standing company. Decorative concretes have come a long way since we first introduced our stamped concrete services. After installing over ¾ of a million square feet in Montgomery County MD alone, Deco-Systems has kept up with the latest processes and trends.
Deco-Systems now offers, not only some of the most experienced stamped concrete installers, but in 2003-2004 we added patina staining, stenciling, water coloring, decorative overlays, Boulder image rocks and water features to our list of services. We are now combining some of these new finishes to create more realistic work. By pairing stamped concrete with water color and patina staining, we are able to provide multi-colored surfaces with different colored stones or brick. This past year we introduced diamond finishing of concrete. This creates a terrazzo effect; or when combined with stains or new overlays, creates a marble look. Most recently, we have expanded our product line to include concrete countertops (which give the look of granite, marble, or stone), and wall finishes (which can be applied directly over existing drywall or wooden walls.)
