Minor cracks, dents, and other surface-deep damage can easily be repaired. Resurfacing with concrete overlays is a popular option and it deserves to be. It effectively covers up repairable damage, giving the slab a new surface that extends its lifespan significantly. The new surface improves the aesthetics of the space and it can be further customized to suit the property owner’s taste and lifestyle. The overlay, regardless of how thinly it is installed, is durable enough to last for several years. Plus, it is an inexpensive alternative to high-end options out there.
Decorative Concrete Overlays for Patios, Driveways, and Pool Deckings
Decorative concrete overlays can be used on any concrete surface as long as it is in good condition or at least has minimal damage. Any damage that is deep and extensive should qualify the slab for a complete removal and replacement. For repairable surfaces, here are superior overlays that can be used:
- Stamped Concrete Overlays – Known as a versatile overlay, this can be designed to look like almost any type of surface, with the help of stamp mats and stains. It is often used on patios, pool decks, driveways, and other outdoor spaces.
- Spray Knockdown Texture – One of the best pool deck overlays, this spray texture is similar to stucco, sprayed and knocked down, but it has a more subtle texture that makes it a comfortable surface to walk on even with bare feet.
- Epoxy Flooring – Known to be a very tough coating, epoxy is perfect for use on indoor floors, especially on garage flooring. It is strong enough to withstand impact, chemical spills, abrasion, and more.
- Polyurea Polyaspartic – Similar to epoxy, this coating is also two materials that are mixed as it is being installed. The reason behind this is that it dries so fast that mixing it earlier would make it harder to install.
