At CoverTech, our concrete overlay process allows for custom designs ranging from elegant and simple, to ornate, all using our exclusive process that transforms your existing concrete surfaces into permanent, beautifully enhanced additions to your home – all without the expense of having to remove and install a new concrete pour.
Concrete overlays can be applied to patios, pool areas, driveways, sidewalks and paths, stairs, stoops and entryways – almost anywhere an existing concrete surface exists.
• Your existing concrete is first repaired if needed, abraided and thoroughly cleaned. A layer of product is troweled on.
• After the troweled layer is dry, the desired pattern is put down with a special stranded tape, and the top coat is applied using various methods, depending upon the desired look.
• Once the design is complete the surface is sealed with a durable clear coat that protects from abrasion and UV exposure. Applications need to be re-sealed every 5-7 years to keep the surface looking new.
• Most applications take 2-3 days to complete, can be walked upon in 8-12 hours drying time, and are usable in a normal fashion in approximately 7 days, depending on daytime temperatures.
