Sarasota is synonymous with outdoor fun and luxury living, such as the Lakewood Ranch planned community that offers a full spectrum of lifestyle options to enjoy seasonally or year-round. Sarasota is also a favorite destination spot for sun worshipers, beach bunnies and “Snow Birds” who come for a break from cold weather in other parts of the country. Florida’s Suncoast, also referred to as Florida’s Beach, is a stretch of 20 barrier islands and 35 miles of white, sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, including Siesta Beach, ranked #1 in the U.S. by TripAdvisor, a popular online travel site, and the only U.S. beach on their international 2017 Traveler’s Choice Awards list. Florida’s Suncoast is the ideal spot for nautical adventures galore--marine aquariums, pirate cruises, dolphin encounters, water excursions, and more. Restaurants that range from elegant cuisine to casual, barefoot dining and moonlight dinner cruises help to keep tourism a top industry for the Sarasota/Suncoast area.
A major attraction in the area is the Ringling Bridge, a 60-foot high bridge extending from Sarasota to St. Armand’s Key and Lido Key, erected in 2003 to replace an antiquated drawbridge. It’s a favorite walking place for locals who love the view of the water or the city skyline at sunset. The bridge is the site of Sarasota’s largest race event, the annual Ringling Bridge Run, offering a one-mile Fun Run or a four-mile race, open to all ages, with proceeds benefiting the Sarasota YMCA.
Sarasota is known for other cultural and historic sites like the Circus Museum, historic Asolo Theater, Museum of Art, the Tibbals Learning Center, the Playspace and the Center for Asian Art. Other area attractions include Selby Gardens at Sarasota Bay (a tropical urban oasis), the Manatee Performing Arts Center in Bradenton, Van Wezel Performing Arts and various other venues for ballet, opera, concert bands and orchestra productions.
Bradenton in Manatee County mirrors the coastal culture of Sarasota and the surrounding areas with dolphin and whale watching, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing tours and charters and horseback riding on the beach. The famous Bobby Jones Golf Course and 11 other golf courses help to ensure year-round activities for everyone to enjoy. Bradenton’s LECOM Park, formerly McKechnie Field, is the spring training camp for the Pittsburg Pirates and the Ed Smith Stadium is home to the Baltimore Orioles.
With mild weather all year long, outdoor living is a huge part of the Florida lifestyle. Franchise owners Andrew Eiler and Gina Maiorino-Eiler, along with Sherry Eiler of Concrete Craft serving Sarasota, Florida, can ensure that residents have carefree, low-maintenance concrete surfaces to enhance their everyday lives, including interior floors and outdoor surfaces. Beautiful stamped, stained and resurfaced decorative concrete designs create luxurious patios and pool decks for outdoor entertaining areas and dining spaces to take advantage of the year-round playground for outdoor activities.
The Eilers can also install decorative concrete with expert precision and innovative designs that bring natural beauty and life to concrete driveways, walkways and garages, as well as your interior floors, like kitchens, laundry rooms or family rooms. Custom concrete overlays can revive distressed, stained and pitted concrete surfaces so they look like new again, producing results that resemble natural stone and rock, including flagstone, cobblestone, slate or brick. As a plus, Concrete Craft resurfaced concrete overlays are “green rated” according to LEEDS standards.
Concrete Craft’s vertical concrete resurfacing applications can completely change the exterior façade of your home, indoor and outdoor fireplaces or shower and accent walls by installing authentic looking faux stone siding over the existing surface – all without the need of costly demolition.
For homeowners who desire a handcrafted “artisan” look, Andrew prides himself on his use of our proprietary hand-cut concrete and custom-colored approach to fabricating concrete to resemble authentic flagstone, cobblestone, tile, and wood plank patterns. Decorative concrete overlays will make your home the envy of your neighborhood. Also, be sure to ask Andrew if he can help with any commercial flooring projects as well.
Concrete Craft of Sarasota serves the Suncoast area and surrounding towns of Bradenton, Cortez, Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach, Parrish, Palmetto, Ellenton, Englewood, Terra Ceia, Osprey, Nokomis, Venice, and North Port.
