Concrete overlays, also known as micro-tops or skim-coats, are another decorative concrete flooring option that is sure to look impressive in your home or business. Whether you are looking to create a seamless surface or need to cover cracks, holes, flaws, or damaged and mismatched concrete due to foundational or plumbing repairs, overlays provide you with the opportunity to have the durability and beauty of a decorative concrete floor despite existing limitations.
Concrete overlay installations are great for sites that have damaged concrete as well as for those who want a blemish-free concrete surface. While these floors don’t have the unique characteristics found in concrete slabs, they are a great choice when a clean slate is needed or desired. We are ready to assist customers from throughout the communities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, as well as the surrounding areas.
Concrete Overlay Installations Customized for Your Needs
Your concrete overlays are created using a diamond grinding process that removes any contaminants that may be present. It also profiles the substrate so that it can be adequately bonded with the overlay material. Once installed, your concrete overlay is treated much like a stained or sealed concrete floor, which allows for many decorative options, including the application of color, the incorporation of logos and custom motifs, and decorative scoring.
Like a stained concrete floor, this type of installation requires a seal coat to protect the coloring agent as well as the overlay itself. These types of floors can be sealed with a variety of different types of products, from traditional sealers and paste wax to polyurethane coatings. The topical coating recommended is usually determined by your durability and budgetary needs.
Some of the different options you can utilize when it comes to customizing your concrete overlays include integrally coloring the material, custom staining or dying, incorporating custom motifs, decorative scoring, and even diamond polishing.
