Everything About Concrete Overlay

Are you looking to restore your patio, driveway or pool area? Are there cracks, bumps or old stains on the concrete around your home? You should consider remodeling with a concrete overlay. Overlaying your concrete takes the hassle out of having to completely replace a surface by simply making it come to life in a new way. 


What is Concrete Overlay?

Concrete overlay is a thin layer, as thin as a feather, of concrete that goes over existing concrete for repair or decorative reasons. They can be stamped, broom finished, or left smooth.

Concrete overlaying is a new modern way to revamp your driveway, pool area, or any surface. Stone Edge Surfaces can transform that dull, gray plate of concrete into something beautiful yet durable and easier to clean and maintain. 

How Long Will Concrete Overlay Last?

A concrete overlay will last a very long time when applied properly by the professionals. They are installed with a penetrating sealer that makes them more resistant to staining and scuffing. Every 5 to 7 years it should be resealed. All you have to do is maintain that sealer, talk to the pros at Stone Edge Surfaces to find out more about maintenance. 

Will Concrete Overlay Crack? 

In most cases if the sub-base and any damaged concrete is prepared properly then the concrete overlay will not crack. Unfortunately, most concrete has a tendency to crack, usually as a result of improper design or poor construction practices. Some concrete overlays have to be kept wet soon after they cure so they don’t cure too fast. Stone Edge Surfaces are the preferred custom concrete floor company to help you achieve the look that you wish and don’t consider the job done until you are happy with the results. 

Is Concrete Overlay Durable? 

Overlaying your concrete is just as durable as concrete itself, if not more so. It is much faster to complete and more affordable than pulling out a concrete floor and laying down something completely new. Choosing the overlay is also environmentally friendly because of it’s longer-lasting material that is not as easily damaged making it a greener choice. 

Even if you don’t have a concrete slab, you can apply concrete overlay to the subfloor or another floor type. You can put an overlay right on top of linoleum, for example. Contact Stone Edge Surfaces to receive your overlay quote today!
