Concrete Restoration Systems
by Malibu Pools and Decorative Concrete as featured here in our April 2018 publication of Colorado Homes and Lifestyle Magazine in recognition of their 40 years of impeccable contributions within our Colorado Community. 

Established in June of 1978, Daniel Yalacki the Owner, President/CEO of Malibu Pools and Decorative Concrete began this company at the age of 18. He came from a family of nine children and he was the middle child. Having the desire to become an architect, he built pools in the summertime and went to school in the fall after the season was over. He graduated top of his class in 1982.

In 1983, he developed a pool resurfacing system called Fibercoat 2000 that is a fiberglass reinforced porcelain-like application that is still in pools some 35 years later. He was the second contractor in Colorado to provide stamped concrete. The first generation of decorative concrete, by the mid-1980’s by bringing talented stamp concrete installers from San Diego CA. This quickly transformed his company from primarily pools, spas, outdoor kitchens and fire pits, to providing the finest in decorative concrete applications in the state.

Now while his company still provides all of the services listed above, that are available from his vast decades of architectural accomplishments, but now his greatest focus is on restoring concrete and its driveways that has caught his attention.  After being in the concrete industry for nearly 40 years, he has seen about everything you can about concrete. Up until now, when concrete has spalling, which is the flaking off of the concrete surface as zoomed in on the before picture on this driveway, tear out and a replacement was the only option. That is up until now.

One in three driveways has spalling. It is just a fact of our Colorado environment. But Concrete Restorations Systems has solutions! They can turn your ugly deteriorated driveway into a beautiful work of art that your neighbors will be jealous of and for good reason.  This company also has zero complaints in 40 years with the BBB and a Five Star Review, the best in the industry!

How to Determine the Best Tools to Use to Acid Stain Concrete

Concrete acid staining has become popular and a trend of today’s house flooring market. Many homeowners have concrete stained their floors, creating it into their dream home. The question is whether it is more cost efficient to do the project yourself or hire a professional. It all depends on how much experience you have to do it yourself and the cost of all of the supplies. Professionals that specialize in acid concrete staining have all the tools and experience to get the job done right, but it may be more cost efficient without a professional if the homeowner knows what they are doing.

There is a lot of work and tools that go into staining concrete, not to mention that once it is done, it is done. There is no going back except paying more to have it grinded down. Any homeowner should really think about the cost to them of staining concrete themselves and the extra cost if they mess up. In addition, some acid staining tools such as rollers, squeegees and acid sprays not only require professional experience to do right but can also be harmful to the homeowner’s home if done incorrectly. If the homeowner has the budget for all of the chemicals and tools, they should also plan a budget of the cost to fix anything that they do not have the knowledge to fix, worst case scenario.

To perform a rustic acid-washed stain to concrete flooring, the estimated cost is around $0.30 per square foot for DIY homeowners. This is a great savings to consider, but what is more worth it – taking the chance of doing it yourself if you do not know what you are doing and messing up and paying what could cost up to a thousand dollars for a professional to fix it or letting a professional handle it from the beginning?

Because there are so many chemicals involved in concrete acid staining, it is so vital to make sure the acidic liquid does not come in contact with anything it should not be touching (i.e. furniture, walls, floors than be damaged from the acid). This could simply cost any homeowner thousands of dollars in damage that they could have spent on a professional to do it correctly. When in doubt, it is always best to seek a professional, like Concrete Restoration Systems, who has years of experience in the industry and knows exactly what they are doing to do the best job. One of the most harmful effects to a home from acid staining is all of the chemicals being exposed in the home. This can be dangerous to the health of anyone just by breathing it in and especially for pets due to the after effect of chemical scents roaming around.


Figuring out the best way to stain concrete both efficiently and financially will require a lot of research and professional help, but is doable and affordable in the end if done right. Homeowners, it is important to know what you want and the cost of it. Widely known in Denver, Concrete Restoration Systems has served hundreds of people around the Denver Metro area and has a history of perfection and low prices with outstanding reviews. With nearly 40 years of experience, owner Dan Yalacki will make sure all needs are taken care of.
