What Makes Us Different?
Concrete Technology Inc. or “CTi” has found its success by providing the support, training and successful business model commonly found in top-tier franchise systems without charging the franchise fees, royalties or advertising expenses commonly associated with these franchises.
In addition, CTi manufactures a product that fills a niche in the remodeling industry -- namely, creating a unique look with a plain concrete slab. This niche has exploded due to customers looking for a cost effective alternative to brick, tile, slate, or even to tearing out and replacing a concrete slab that has become unsightly.
What Do We Do?
CTi’s product line is a resurfacing system for existing concrete. This unique polymerized acrylic cement provides the homeowner with a look and texture of inlaid brick, tile, slate, marble or even a look that is one of a kind. CTi Dealers provide this for a cost that is substantially less than the industry standard products and is competitive with tearing out and replacing the unsightly concrete.
How Do We Do It?

In addition, CTi’s business relationship of manufacturing the product line our Dealers use, along with not charging any other fees, means that our success is directly tied to the Dealers. This relationship has created a culture of innovation and success for both CTi and its Dealers since 1992.
