Bio: Keefe Duhon is owner of Concrete Revolution, LLC. Keefe is from New Iberia, LA, where he and his family live and operate Concrete Revolution, LLC. Keefe's passion for his business started in early 2008, where he saw an opportunity to be creative, offer quality services to customers and start a revolution when it comes to plain concrete.  

Keefe's philosophy is a bit different from other concrete contractors. Keefe believes that the floors you walk on should be art; art that is specific to his client's personality and art that is truly one-of-a-kind and which cannot be easily replicated. Keefe provides more than stained concrete; he gives his clients decorative concrete. This is an art that Keefe has perfected in a short time, making him an artist of concrete; changing concrete forever.

Keefe’s professional flooring applications include: stains, epoxies, overlays, counter tops, fireplaces, vertical wall applications and showers, to name a few. Two of Keefe’s signature applications are his wood planks and his own product line, CR-Liquid Marble. Keefe’s attention to detail has enabled him to achieve real wood-like appearances without using stamps, all textured and colored by hand. His interest in epoxies lead to him working with manufacturers to develop his own formula, CR-Liquid Marble. His artistic mind allows him to create various movements and utilize numerous colors to create a custom, seamless floor. 

Keefe’s passion for the industry does not stop at applying awesome floors, he’s now in the process of rolling out www.BehindTheTrowels.com. Behind The Trowels will be a live webinar service where leaders in the decorative concrete world can provide live instructional webinars to participants without the need to leave work or home. This interactive learning experience will benefit learners who do not have the time to leave work but have a desire to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques as well as benefit beginners into the decorative concrete industry. 

Additionally, Keefe has launched Maverick Surface Preparations, whose goal is to provide quality floor preparation machines at affordable prices. Maverick’s initial launch include both the Guardian and Triton floor preparation machines. Both machines can be coupled with the DC-Tromb 400L vacuum.
