Little Known Surfaces You Can Overlay With Concrete

Concrete overlays have become more and more popular in recent years, mainly due to the cost effectiveness of using overlays as opposed to replacing slabs of concrete.

The most common uses of concrete overlays are for refurbishing patios, pool decks, and walkways. However, you may be surprised to learn that there are many more surfaces and places overlays can be used successfully. Concrete overlays aren’t just for concrete anymore! The personnel at Concrete Designs are expert in everything concrete and can show you the many ways an overlay will improve almost any area of your home.

Maintaining or upgrading surfaces not only improves the beauty of a home, it adds continued value.

Resurfacing interior floors, even those where tile or carpet have been, is a great way to start your refurbishing project. Preparing these floors is a simple matter of removing all the old covering and any mastic, giving a completely clean slab for the overlay to bond with. There are even self-leveling overlays specially formulated to be used on uneven floors.

With modern technology and engineering, overlay formulas have expanded to be used on vertical surfaces, places never dreamed of before.

Brick, drywall, stone, and wood are a few of the surfaces where an overlay can be used. The knowledgeable experts at Concrete Designs will be happy to do an inspection and explain exactly how areas with these surfaces can be improved upon through the use of overlays. Freshen up that old brick fireplace with a modern new look at a fraction of the cost of replacing the brick, for example.

Not only indoors, but outdoor surfaces benefit from an overlay as well.

Yes, pool decks and patios are the most common use of overlays, but retaining walls and certain fencing can be overlaid as well, giving a complete new look to your outdoor living space. Old worn asphalt drives and walkways may even be candidates for a concrete overlay. Again, let the experts at Concrete Designs inspect your property and give you an honest appraisal of exactly what can be done with concrete overlays.
