  • Why Resurfaced Concrete?

    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.

  • Microtoppings of skim coats
    Application Thickness
    Featheredge to 1/8 inch

    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.

    Spray-down systems
    Application Thickness
    1/8 inch

    Decorative Options
    Usually applied as a splatter coat or a knock-down (troweled) finish, and are ideal for use with paper or plastic stencils. Available precolored or can be integrally colored during mixing. Stains, dyes, or tints may be applied for accent color.

    Performance Attributes
    The textured finish is durable and skid-resistant, making it well-suited for surfaces such as pool decks, sidewalks, and driveways.

    Stampable overlays
    Application Thickness
    1/4 to 3/4 inch

    Decorative Options
    Can be stamped and textured (similar to conventional stamped concrete) to mimic brick, slate, natural stone, and other materials. Color options include broadcast pigments, colored liquid or powdered releases, stains, dyes, and tinted sealers.

    Performance Attributes
    Are applied thickly enough to accept texture and cover minor imperfections in the concrete substrate.

    Self-leveling overlays
    Application Thickness
    1/4 to 1 inch
    (in one lift)

    Decorative Options
    Can be left seamless (except at joints) or used as a canvas for sawcut or engraved designs. For color, mix in integral pigments or apply stains, dyes, or tints.

    Performance Attributes
    Restores structurally sound, yet worn, concrete surfaces and can be used to level uneven floors.

    Application Thickness
    Up to 1 ½ inch

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

    Performance Attributes
    Restores structurally sound, yet worn, concrete in preparation for floor coverings. Provides a smooth, level base.
