Decorative concrete overlays are the newest generation of the decorative concrete innovation.
They not only allow us to overlay old concrete sidewalks and driveways, but also allow us to work in all 3 dimensions by going vertical. The advancement in polymer development has created stronger overlays that create stronger bonds to their base. Some clients have seen poor overlay projects that have spalled and peeled off the base surface and think that overlays are not permanent. This is not the case. The use of overlays requires extensive training and knowledge of the process. The most commonly made mistakes are shortcuts made in the base preparation prior to the overlay installation.
