WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE
Concrete Polishing is perhaps the most popular concrete flooring application in the world. You’ve seen it in many spaces – offices, lobbies, hardware stores, retail stores, hospitals, and more. Polished Concrete is achieved with chemical densifiers and the use of professional equipment (diamond grinders/polishers). It is a permanent floor solution that is easily cleaned and maintained.
Mile High Coatings has the equipment and experience to deliver many of the various polished concrete applications. From a matte sheen to a high-gloss or just simply densifying the concrete to increase abrasion resistance and reduce dusting (excellent and necessary for warehouse floors).
Polished Concrete also has the best 10-year Life-Cycle cost when compared to any other type of floor product such as VCT, carpet, sheet vinyl, and more.
When polishing concrete, chemical densification is required in order to achieve a higher sheen. The process is permanent and increases the life, performance and aesthetic of the concrete. The densifier penetrates into the concrete (new or old) and closes up the pores through crystalization. The result is a harder, more resilient concrete floor that will not wear.
When densified or polished concrete is installed, it will qualify for LEED credits because of the sustainability, and long-term maintenance requirements (low) and it is a zero-VOC application.

Concrete Acid Staining Application
|Acid-staining concrete is a bit of an art. Mile High Coatings has the experience to safely apply a wide variety of custom concrete effects with minimal environmental impact.
Clean, unsealed concrete is a must for an acid stain to properly react with the calcium and lime in the concrete. After the reaction is complete, it needs to be carefully neutralized and cleaned up. The complete unique, one-of-a-kind results that you get from acid stains are what make this application appealing. Once the floor is clean and dry, we can seal the floor. Depending on the area you’re finishing (could be a basement, office space, or patio), we have some options for sealing the concrete and give your new floor the desired sheen and finish that you want.
|What is Acid Stain?
An acid stain is salts or a combination of salts that are carried by acid, typically hydrochloric acid, to help facilitate a chemical reaction with the calcium and lime in the cream of the concrete, which is the top layer. An example that many homeowners are familiar with: the rust spots on your sidewalk or driveway from fertilizing the yard. It’s the same principle.The iron turns to iron oxide (rust) and permanently dis-colors the concrete. The same is true with an acid stain – the color is permanent. Although it’s strongly suggested, it theoretically doesn’t need to be sealed.
Concrete Stain, Dye And Seal
|For outdoor patios and walkways, we can add a traction additive to our clear coat to ensure a non-slip surface. This allows you to have a beautiful stained concrete area with the durability of the SHP Polyaspartic. Crack repairs, spalling (pits, divots, holes, etc) repairs or other patching can be completed. However, sometimes leaving the flaws alone will often add to the character of your floor.
Removal of existing coatings, sealers, carpet glue or mastic is generally not a problem. Our professional equipment and experience will make sure that the concrete is suitable and clean before we apply any stain and/or sealers.

MILE HIGH COATINGS
Matt C, Fort Collins
“I’d like to recognize the work that David and his crew at Mile High Coatings did in painting our new sun room. As a newly-constructed addition, they carefully prepared all of the new surfaces for paint by caulking, filling nail holes, and priming. With the new paint on the addition, our entire home looks great. They were always on-time, professional, courteous, and worked hard until the job was complete. I would highly recommend Mile High Coatings to anyone needing a professional paint job at an affordable price, done by people whom you can trust.”
Judy Bollinger, Fort Collins

We are very impressed with the way you handle your business. You explain the details of the contract and every step of the actual painting process. Your pricing is very reasonable; your painters were courteous, hard working, very efficient and left everything the way they found it. We consider you a true Professional, as you obviously take pride in your business. We would highly recommend Mile High Coatings to anyone who is considering their house painted.

“The prep work was extremely professional.”
Amanda F, Severence, CO
“I hired Mile High Coatings to paint the interior of my home. David showed up to the estimate on time with a smile. He listened to everything I wanted and gave good advice when asked. I had him choose the colors… They were exactly what I wanted, but couldn’t come up with on my own. We worked out a reasonable price and set a date for the work to get started. David and his helper Jesse showed up ON TIME. They got to work right away. They are very detail oriented. They were very nice to be around the entire time they were in my home. By the time the crew left, my kids were wondering when they get to come back. I highly recommend Mile High Coatings to anybody and when people show interest I tell tell them right away what a wonderful job they did. I have had people come into my home and be very impressed with all the flawless lines and wonderful job. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!”
Heather L, Windsor
“Thank you for the wonderful job you and your crew did painting the exterior of our home. Your crew was polite and courteous. They did a great job on the preparation and keeping the area around the home clean. The red accents and shutters look very nice. Also, thank you for working with us around the new window installation. I’d recommend Mile High Coatings as a professional, honest paint company that did a quality job at an affordable price.”
Rene S, Lafayette
“David and the crew were very eager to get the job done correctly. Our home looks wonderful and we are very pleased. Thank you.”
Tim B, Fort Collins
“Thank you so much for all your hard work in getting our home looking great. David and the painters worked hard to make sure that our house was properly prepped before the painting began. During the first day, some rotted boards were identified. We came to an agreement about replacing them and they did a great job! David was very patient when it came to us picking colors and we couldn’t have done it without his guidance. Thanks to David and Mile High Coatings, we have had several positive comments about our home and we couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone and everyone!”
Lisa G, Longmont
“I wanted to send a letter recommending the painting services of Mile High Coatings. I contacted Mile High Coatings on February 10th. I wanted to paint the inside of a rental property before the new tenants moved in. Mainly the main living and kitchen areas, which had very high walls and acoustic ceilings. We were on a tight schedule and had to have the inside painted by February 23rd. Of the three options I chose, and the three estimates I received, I chose Mile High Coatings because of the representation of David Nanninga, owner, and because of the value and fairness of the quote.
David and his crew were able to start the job on Monday February 16th, which was a holiday. David estimated the job would take 2 days. David continuously communicated with me on the status of the job. The prep work done prior to spraying the walls and high ceilings was extremely professional. All exposed areas not to be painted were thoroughly covered. They patched a large crack in the high ceilings to the point where you could not tell there ever was a crack there. They painted over some difficult areas of uneven painting from the previous tenant. When the job was finished and I did a walk-through, I was extremely impressed and pleased with the outcome. They were finished by Wednesday, February 18th.
When the new tenants moved in, they were in awe of how nice and bright the interior looked. In fact, we held my Mom’s wedding at the house on February 28th and all guests were impressed.
I would recommend David and his team for any interior or exterior painting job, and would definitely use them for a future project.
