First…if your concrete is disintegrating, you should probably replace it, because an overlay won’t help if the surface it is being overlayed on…disintegrates from underneath it.
However, if you have standard minor cement cracking, or just want a new beautiful look that will last and can be customized with color, design and exact fit…then a professional concrete overlay, also known as decorative concrete, may be a perfect and less expensive option.
A Professional Grade concrete overlay is not standard driveway concrete like you can buy at Home Depot or Lowe’s. Stone Edge Surfaces concrete overlays and decorative concrete are scientifically engineered and have special polymers and other proprietary active ingredients that are designed specifically to be stamped, smoothed, sprayed or troweled down. They also hold their color longer and have finer sands so the ingredients bond together better to create a beautiful realistic look that will last.
Although both products are cement based and can look real…only a Stone Edge Surfaces concrete overlay can be customized to fit perfectly and seamlessly around all curves, obstructions, and can be customized on site and colored to match or mimic a specific look…even if you changed your mind the day of application!
Stone veneer and manufactured stone have pre-set designs and colors, corners are ordered separate, cannot fit around a radius or curve or any obstruction because they must be cut to fit, and have a tendency to break. Concrete is not a one-size-fits-all type of product, and many homes and properties do not follow the exact same layout for patios and decks.
Stone Edge Surfaces has 100% coverage, even on curves and corners, and you stamp or carve the actual concrete mix as you go so there are no voids, air gaps, or water seeping behind that could cause it to fall off. They are also much less likely to break or crack due to the custom fit. Our products are made from the highest quality materials and are proven to not only look the best, but to also function as the best coverage for in and around your home.
Let’s not forget your Driveway, Walkway, Entryway, Porch, and Floors. If you want a stunning look, then a Stone Edge Surfaces horizontal mix can add new life to plain looking or cracked concrete and bring that high end enviable look you’ve always wanted. While this may not change the functionality of the surface much, it can add significant value to your home as well as curb appeal.
Why settle for ordinary when homeowners can have a functional masterpiece like those on the right…or you can go for the classic look of just adding a new color or broom finish and cover all the cracks. With concrete overlays…homeowners can have what they want, for a price that is affordable for any budget. Our products even allow your to add a personal touch to an already beautiful finish by changing colors or textures.
