Frequently Asked Questions
How long do concrete overlays last?
When you are looking for a decorative concrete option, it may seem like overlays are the shortcut to a beautiful surface, but that’s simply not true. Overlays are designed to last just as long as the underlying concrete. When professionally installed, there’s no reason that decorative overlays can’t last for decades, even in unfavorable weather conditions. As long as the concrete is cared for by regular maintenance and surface preparation was done correctly, you can bank on a long-lasting and durable overlay!
Will my overlay be more susceptible to cracks?
While some overlays can be used to fix minor damage, they should never be used on major damaged areas. If an overlay is applied to concrete that is cracked, the overlay is likely to break. Overlays are only as good as the sub-base they are applied to, so it is crucial to have a strong base that has been adequately prepared to ensure a strong and lasting overlay.
