Charlie and his son Jason started Concrete Innovations over 10 years ago.
They are also co-founders of the Concrete Polishing and Staining Conference (CP&S). This event was created to provide our industry a venue in which to learn techniques and procedures as well as show the latest industry technology.
Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, they get involved in the community with their not-for-profit organization – The Cultural Walk of Fame, which is located on the corner of Elmwood Avenue & Bidwell Parkway.
The buildings in Buffalo, NY contain a unique history which many of their owners may want to preserve. Stories are captured within these buildings, from the walls to the floors. Concrete Innovations has a process that can bring new life into original concrete floors. Preserving some natural qualities of the floor but providing it with a new modern look that you can customize with limitless potential. Your legacy concrete floor can be newly revived with dyes, stains, and saw cuts that can create patterns, designs, and logos. This process is called polished concrete. It brings additional benefits with it such as low-maintenance, eco-friendly, stain-resistant, cost-effective, reduced wear, reduced allergens, and no production or plant shutdowns.
