Nothing is more unsettling than looking at and walking on old, boring, or damaged concrete surfaces. Unless you can afford a complete slab removal and replacement, better address it now before any damage gets worse. While the issues are small and minimal, it is highly recommended to install decorative concrete overlays or coatings on the existing slab to renew its look and purpose.
While there are many different methods of remodeling concrete spaces, such as installing tile or maybe replacing the entire slab, an overlay is a more practical choice. There is an appropriate material for different surfaces and for different purposes. Despite this, all options are durable, very appealing, customizable, low-maintenance, and affordable. Overlays can be installed on patios, pool decks, driveways, interior floors, commercial flooring, and more.
Just because something is affordable, doesn’t mean it has to be flimsy and unreliable. Decorative concrete overlays provide great benefits at a friendlier cost. Here are some highly recommended options:
- Stamped Overlay – Stone, brick, or tile are just some of the paving materials that scream luxury and durability. But not everyone can afford such materials. If you want luxurious patios, walkways, and other outdoor surfaces, a stamped overlay is a great option for concrete surface repair and resurfacing. It provides the same luxury and durability as the material it is being substituted for.
- Spray Knockdown Finish – This acrylic coating is a popular material for resurfacing concrete in Atlanta. It is perfect for pool decks and can also be used on other outdoor surfaces. The coating is sprayed on a slab, knocked down with a trowel, and coated with a sealer to eliminate porosity. This knockdown texture is slip-resistant and cool to the touch, thanks to the air pockets that the spray texture creates.
- Epoxy Coatings – This two-part material is ideal for sleek and seamless garage flooring. Another reason why it is ideal for garages is that it is resistant to most types of damage, such as scratches, abrasion, impact, and more.
- Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating – Also a durable two-part coating, this has just recently become a trend among residential and commercial property owners. It was originally created to coat industrial concrete floors. Its fast-drying property minimizes intrusion, perfect for urgent projects or businesses that can not afford to close shop for a long time.
