A crack here and there does not exactly mean that a concrete slab needs to be replaced immediately. An expert needs to be called in to check the slab and determine the cause. Unless it has something to do with the subgrade or steel foundation, a replacement is not necessary. For minimal and surface-deep damage, concrete overlays can do the trick. It effectively covers up any damage or blemish and gives the slab a new and more durable surface.
Property owners know how frustrating it is to have to stare at, let alone walk on damaged concrete surfaces. It’s a reminder that one needs to spend for concrete surface repairs. While it would indeed cost something to update or improve its appearance, it does not have to be expensive. Overlays can significantly transform surfaces without breaking the bank.
Decorative Concrete Coating Options
Overlays can be installed on any concrete surface, damaged or not, as long as it does not have any deep or extensive damage. The most popular decorative concrete overlays available today include:
Stamped Overlays – This overlay is so versatile that it can be made to look like any high-end surface, like flagstone, brick, or slate. The stamped patterns create a slip-resistant surface that makes it ideal for patios, pool decks, and driveways.
Spray Knockdown Texture – This knockdown texture is great for property owners who want to have non-skid pool decks or any outdoor surface with a more subtle appearance. Using a hopper gun, the acrylic concrete floor coating is sprayed down on the slab and knocked down to create a cool and spray textured surface.
Epoxy Flooring – Popularly used on garage and basement floors, epoxy coatings provides a tough and durable surface that can endure almost any damaging element. This can only be used indoors because of its sensitivity to the sun’s UV rays.
