There is nothing more frustrating than having damaged concrete surfaces around you. Not only does it ruin the aesthetics of your entire property, it also devalues it. To get the value back, you would need to resolve the concrete issues. Replace it? No. There is a more practical option: Resurfacing concrete in Los Angeles with Concrete Overlays. These are thin layers of material installed on top of an existing concrete slab. It gives the old concrete a new surface that is more appealing and more functional.
Decorative Concrete Resurfacing Solutions: Coatings & Finishes
Before you do decide to resurface, you must know that there are several different types of overlays and coatings that you can choose from. Each one is made of a different material and is applied in different methods, too. Learn about each one, what they have to offer, and which one would best provide you with what you need aesthetically and function-wise.
Stamped Concrete Overlay – This is an overlay made of a cementitious material. It is applied thinly on a concrete slab but thick enough to be stamped on. The stamp mats are laid out on the surface, tapped a bit until the pattern imprints on the overlay. The most popular patterns are natural stone, brick, pavers, wood, and more. If you want a more realistic look, our experts hand-stain the surface until it looks believable.
Spray Knockdown Texture – This knockdown texture coating is made of acrylic concrete. It is sprayed on a concrete slab using a hopper gun. Once the material has been splattered evenly on the surface, a trowel is used to knock down the material. The random texture it creates is comfortable under bare feet but highly slip-resistant. This coating is also known for being cool to the feet.
Epoxy Flooring – This epoxy coating is a combination of a resin and a hardener. It is poured and spread on a concrete slab after equal parts of the two materials are blended together. It dries to a seamless surface that is resistant to abrasion, chemical spills, impact, scratches, and other types of floor damage.
Polyurea Polyaspartic – Although its name is quite a mouthful, a lot of property owners opt for this coating. It was first used as a floor coating for industrial properties like warehouses and factories because of its high resistance to damage. Now, it is available for residential and commercial use, too. It is a fast-drying material that only requires a day to dry and cure.
