You probably don’t realize how many concrete overlays you have walked on. They look like any other floor since it is just a proprietary blend of concrete poured for up to 2 inches over the existing substrate and then stamped, stained, or finished to look a certain way.
So why bother with an overlay? There are a couple of reasons.
An existing surface may need to be smoothed out quickly. Pea gravel may be bunching and creating an uneven surface. Chipped old concrete may be catching people’s toes.
Pouring a layer of new concrete over the old surface is a hassle-free way to remove those tripping hazards. It also protects the substructure from water damage and so prevents cracks from forming.
A chipped and worn floor makes the rest of the patio or garage look shabby. Covering the surface with a fresh coat of concrete will brighten up your space and make it look well-cared for.
You don’t have to stop there, either. Just as applying a coat of trendy-looking paint will make your house look chic, applying a layer of concrete with a fancy new stain or pattern will update your home’s look. It’s a great way to round off your spring cleaning or have your home pretty for the holidays.
