Want to cover up surface imperfections in your existing concrete floors and give a complete face-lift at a much lower cost compared to removal and replacement? Applying a decorative concrete overlay is the solution for all these problems!
Types Of Concrete Floor Overlays
Many cement overlays are traditionally available for decades but today’s systems are blends of polymer resins with cement, sand, and other additives which improve performance, aesthetic qualities and wear resistance. Polymer-modified overlays can be coated in layers from as thin as a fraction of a millimeter up to several inches thick. They bond well to existing concrete and combat damage from chemicals, salt, UV exposure, abrasion and freeze-thaw conditions. Even though most types of overlay systems offer similar functional benefits, each system is unique. Overlay manufacturers use various kinds of polymer resins, blending them to produce their own formulated proprietary products with specific physical properties. Many modern decorative overlays use acrylic blends because these provide excellent adherence, UV resistance and strength.
Points To Remember While Choosing A Concrete Overlay
The State Of The Existing Floor
Does your concrete surface have a lot of cracks or pits? If so, they must be repaired before installing the decorative concrete overlay. You should select a self-leveling concrete overlay.
Conditions To Which The Overlay Would Be Exposed
The overlay system should be strong enough to withstand all the deteriorating conditions it would encounter. Is it a high-traffic area or exposed to chemicals, oil spills and grease? The material you plan to use should work for your purposes.
The Look You Want To Achieve
The main purpose to use a concrete overlay is to rejuvenate and beautify the existing concrete. Determine the color, texture and pattern you want for your renewed surface and then choose a system that can bring about the look you desire. Consult with the installer and overlay manufacturer about their product to check if it suits your needs. Request to view at samples of various colors and finishes and portfolio of completed projects.
