Does your existing concrete have surface blemishes that need to be covered up? Or is it too plain and you want it to be more interesting? Thanks to decorative concrete overlays, it is possible to revamp any indoor or outdoor surface at a much lower cost than removing and replacing the slabs. The only difficulty you would encounter is deciding which material to choose and what look you want on your property.
Top Concrete Overlay Options
Resurfacing concrete in Minneapolis may be an inexpensive method of repairing surface issues but the results are impressively appealing. If you are unsure about which one to choose, here is a primer at the overlays we offer and the decorative possibilities with each:
- Stamped Overlay – Want a brick walkway but can’t afford it? Then a stamped overlay is what you need. This involves a thin layer of cementitious material laid upon the existing slab. The overlay is then stamped with the desired pattern. With patterns and staining, it can mimic the appearance of brick, natural stone, tile, pavers, and many other types of high-end materials.
- Spray Knockdown Finish – Instead of being applied with a roller brush, this acrylic concrete coating is sprayed on the surface. It features a spray texture that is highly slip-resistant but comfortable underfoot. It also stays cool, thanks to the air pockets that the textured surface creates.
- Epoxy Coating – This is a tough and durable material that is ideally used on garage flooring, basement floors, and other surfaces that go through use and abuse more often than other floors.
- Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating – Similar to epoxy, this concrete floor coating is used on concrete surfaces that are exposed to extreme weight, heavy traffic, impact, and even chemical spills. The most notable feature is that it dries really fast, requiring only a day to install and be ready for use.
