Why Resurfaced Concrete?

Resurfacing is tops for durability and a great look

There are a wide variety of resurfacing, or overlay, systems available for refinishing concrete flatwork, ranging from ultra-thin systems (also called microtoppings or skim coats) that can be applied in layers as thin as a credit card to floor underlayments that go on at thicknesses of up to an inch or more in one lift. Each overlay type offers different decorative options and performance attributes.

Concrete Refinishing Systems

Decorative Options

Can be troweled to a texture or troweled silky smooth. You can incorporate color into the mix, broadcast dry pigments onto the surface while troweling for a marbleized appearance, or accent with stains and dyes.

Performance Attributes

These polymer-based systems are applied super thin, giving them the ability to flex, unlike other systems. May also be applied to wall surfaces.

Removal of weeds and moss that grow in the joints; refilling joints with sand as needed.
