About Cohills

Who We Are

In 1983, Mike and Karen Cohill purchased Building Specialties, a then existing 33 year old business. At that time, the primary products being sold were integral color, color hardener, and water-proofing products. Although Cohills has expanded our product line quite extensively over the past 37 years, our primary specialty is still decorative concrete products.

Cohills sells over two million pounds of color per year. We would like to think that through our efforts, Arizona has become color savvy. Through excellent customer relations, excellent purchasing strategy and selling only the highest quality materials we have become well known in the industry.

Unique Look

Our stamped colored concrete creates a high-end look and appeal.


Color Effects

It is easier than ever to add translucent color effects to your concrete projects.

Unique Custom Looks

Many years ago we realized that in order to sell color, the contractor needed to know how and what to do with it. We offer free monthly demonstrations on the different techniques of stamped concrete, acid stained concrete, overlay systems and epoxy systems. With this knowledge the concrete contractor has a variety of options to offer their customers.

Cohills has always made our own concrete sample chips using local cements which allows a more accurate result of what the finished product could look like. Color chips, color charts, and small amounts of pigment for sample pours are available to our customers at no additional charge.
