Ripping out old concrete is quite costly and an extremely tiresome and messy process. For example, if ripping out an old concrete pool deck, the crew must be able to navigate around plumbing and electrical work underground, all the while protecting the pool itself. Furthermore, massive, heavy chunks of old concrete must be transported and disposed of. This type of mass quickly piles up in landfills, just adding to the vast overflow of waste across our nation. Lastly, once the old concrete is removed, the surface will still need to be replaced.
If the existing concrete surface has fairly minimal damage, a thin overlay topcoat can be applied, depending on desired texture. A basic decorative concrete coating using a splatter or knockdown texture adds depth and color. If the concrete has significant cracks, pitted areas, and sections that need leveling, one would most likely choose a thicker overlay coating. This type of coating would be applied slightly thicker and would be an excellent choice for the look of stamped concrete.
In conclusion, we bid farewell to conventional thinking. No longer must consumers live with ugly, stained, and pitted concrete. No longer must contractors endure the daunting task of ripping out massive pieces of unsightly concrete, causing more over-flow in our landfills. Decorative concrete overlays are the most unique, attractive, and practical way to restore old concrete. Whether it's an interior or exterior slab, residential or industrial, there is a concrete overlay solution to meet your needs.
