Decorative Concrete Overlay Options A Brand New Concept To Beautify Your Floor on Fast Track


Overlay is actually meant as a colored cement coating on an existing concrete surface. If you have an existing strong, stable and leveled concrete surface, Overlay will be an excellent option to decorate your floor.  There are two types of Overlay systems

1.    Stamped Overlay
2.    Spray Coat

1.    Stamped Overlay

Stamped Overlay is a thin polymer and cement modified topping over existing strong, stable and leveled concrete surface. 1/4″ Thin Stamped Overlay gives the exact look and feel of conventional full depth stamped concrete but is applied directly to existing concrete. This is an ideal way of enhancing the look of existing, sound concrete without actually relaying a fresh concrete of 3-4 “on top. The biggest advantage of stamped overlays is the reduced application time of 48 hours as against 10 days in case of stamped concrete systems. The crude method of broad-casting of colour hardener too is eliminated by making the colour an integral part of the ¼” overlay system. Mainly, stamped concrete Overlays allow you to duplicate the beauty and texture of natural stone, brick, slate, wood, and other materials without having to replace your concrete.

2. Spray Coat

Spray-down concrete systems offer a wide array of finish options. Usually they are sprayed evenly onto concrete with an air-powered hopper gun, but they can also be applied as a splatter coat to create a textured, slip-resistant surface or “knocked down” with a trowel to create a smoother finish. This system incorporates a thin, ready to use, polymer and cement modified coloured mortar. It can be patterned using stencils or filament tape over existing strong, stable and leveled concrete surface. It is versatile and easy to apply. They are very similar to Microtoppings in that they are thin, but differ in that they usually contain more sand and provide a rougher, slip resistant & grittier finish.
