Fair-Faced Concrete

Consistency is key.

Creating fair-faced concrete can severely enhance the looks of a structure. Our services can be used to match color on specific portions of buildings or to beautify the entire exterior. Nawkaw 

Project: National Veterans Memorial and Museum

Location: Columbus, Ohio

When this $75 million project, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, neared completion, Nawkaw was the company trusted to beautify the external concrete surfaces. Nawkaw’s expert team of Fair-Faced Concrete Specialists corrected the variations in color and shading on the poured-in-place concrete, allowing the design of this spectacular building to come through.

To retain the natural, organic look and feel of this cast-in-place concrete building, Nawkaw stained the concrete with translucent colors for a very natural appearance.

Project: University of West Florida

Location: Pensacola, Florida

The concrete panels of this university were heavily covered in unsightly blemishes and severe discoloration in many different areas. To even out the discoloration, Nawkaw used its proprietary stain NawTone-K Opaque. The opaque finish ensured proper coverage of the yellowing, marks, and patches on the concrete’s surface.

Using two coats and a color that resembles a natural, even concrete look, Nawkaw was able to equalize all imperfections, salvaging the facility’s appeal.

The concrete showed heavy signs of discoloration over the entire panel. Many marks and spots were visible, leaving a poor impression on people entering the facility.
