Preparation: Preparation is the most critical step in the concrete coating process. Overlays are designed to adhere to an existing concrete surface. Improperely prepared overlays often delaminate from the concrete beneath them causing bubbles and bad patches that sometimes break away from the concrete completely. To prevent this we first remove any imperfections in the existing concrete such as spalling or scaling, and active cracks are ground out. Next, we clean the entire surface thoroughly to ensure the best possible bond between overlay and concrete. Finally, we repair any cracks or imperfections that were removed earlier with a fiberglass mesh and a polymer concrete patch and then coat the entire surface with a bonding agent.
Installation: Now that the existing concrete surface has been repaired and cleaned, we install the new coating. Installation time and methods vary depending on which type of overlay has been selected.
Stamped Overlay: With stamped overlay, the new overlay material is applied at a depth of 3/8 inch thick and then stamped with our stone texture.
Expoxy Chip Flooring: With expoxy flooring, the epoxy is mixed on-site and is then applied directly to the clean concrete surface, followed directly by the chip layer before the curing process begins.
Spray Texture Overlay: With spray texture overlay, the overlay material is sprayed onto the prepared surface , then lightly troweled to achieve the desired finish.
FINISHING. This is the final step of the overlay process, again time and methods vary.
Stamped Overlays: Stamped Overlays are sealed with a clear, protective, non-slip sealer.
Epoxy Chip Floorings: Epoxy floorings are also sealed with a clear protective glaze and non-slip additive.
Spray Texture Overlays: Spray Texture Overlays are finished using a solid color concrete stain sealer with a non-slip additive.
