Concrete Resurfacing and Overlay


As a concrete driveway, pool deck or walkway ages, it shows cracks, spalls, stains and other unsightly surface imperfections. In most cases, this does not indicate a structural problem with the concrete. Therefore, for a fraction of what new concrete will cost, we can repair the imperfections with our high performance repair products followed by installation of a thin polymerized cementitious overlayment. Essentially providing you with a decorative concrete surface that can last for many years.

The process is fairly straight forward. First we repair the imperfections and remove all embedded stains. The concrete surface is then profiled to assure a strong bond. We hydrate the concrete to promote penetration of the polymers into the substrate. A base coat is installed followed by the finish coat. If any staining is required, we do it at that time. Finally, we install two coats of sealer to protect the newly resurfaced concrete.

For those who want to take their old concrete to a whole new level, we recommend a decorative polymerized concrete overlayment such as:

  • Smooth finish
  • Knock down finish
  • Skip troweled
  • Venetian finish
  • Multi-colored finish
  • Retail stores
  • Flagstone pattern
  • Splatter texture
  • Broom finish
  • Brick/tile pattern

Decorative Concrete Overlays

If your concrete looks dull, cracked or drab, you need a permanent solution that will add some serious visual appeal, cover imperfections and transform plain concrete into something spectacular. All of this can be achieved with decorative concrete overlay. With today’s decorative concrete overlay options, it is so easy to give virtually any concrete surface a total facelift – at a much lower cost than if you replaced the concrete completely.

For business and commercial property owners who are looking for a stunning new look for their indoor or outdoor concrete – but also have a budget they need to stick to – decorative concrete overlay is a perfect choice.
The new polymerized cementitious overlayments developed by Elite Crete Systems are so durable they can even withstand heavy vehicle traffic. Plus the large number of textures and patterns enable our clients to create a unique look configured to their specific design requirements.

Decorative Concrete Overlay: Endless Options

When it comes to decorative concrete overlays, there are virtually endless options available. The biggest challenge for a business owner or commercial property owner is probably just trying to decide between the wide array of resurfacing products available, as well as the diverse array of decorative finishes. Cement-based overlays have been around for decades and many of today’s cement overlays are blended with polymer resins to improve performance and increase its aesthetic qualities. Polymer-modified overlays offer a bit more flexibility and can be applied in layers as thin as a credit card (or up to several inches thick) without experiencing delamination or failure. Polymer modified overlays adhere well to existing concrete and can resist damage from salt, chemicals, UV exposure, freeze-thaw as well as abrasions.

Decorative concrete overlayments are ideal for:
  • Porches
  • Interior flooring
  • Retail stores
  • Salons
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Office flooring
  • Showrooms

Decorative Concrete Overlay: Lower Cost

Whether the decorative concrete overlay is installed indoors or out, the installation will cost much less than total concrete replacement. When you’re on a budget (and who isn’t?) this is a great option. It also takes less time and is less invasive, meaning there is less downtime with your business – and less stress and mess for you to deal with. As a business owner or commercial property manager, less down time means less interference with your business – and that means less negative effect on your profit margin.
