What is a Concrete Overlay?
A concrete overlay is a thin layer of concrete spread over cracked, chipped, or stained concrete that creates a new, fresh finish. Concrete overlays are used to create a seamless floor that hides your damaged concrete slab. Other types of flooring, such as tile, carpet, or wood, can damage your slab with nail holes or leave stains in the concrete (such as grout lines from tiles). When removing old floor to install new concrete floors, overlays are sometimes necessary to get a clean, seamless surface.
Concrete overlays can be polished or stained just like any other concrete floor.
