Concrete overlay resurfacing is the application of a cement and polymer overlay on top of your existing concrete surface. It is used to cover and repair concrete damage and camouflages concrete flaws and imperfections. This concrete deck resurfacing system gives the surface a fresh new look and protects the concrete underneath. In the past, when concrete was damaged and needed repair, the only option was to jackhammer and replace with new concrete. Our top quality concrete resurfacing options can give you a safe and beautiful concrete surface, with increased durability, at a more reasonable cost.
Concrete resurfacing products contain many polymer modifiers and concrete resins that reinforce it’s adherence to the existing concrete surface.

+ Concrete resurfacing is extremely durable. Your resurfaced area will be resistant to stains, tire marks, and will hide minor imperfections and finally, it will offer the potential to last much longer than the old surface.
Conditions: The best results are obtained when concrete resurfacing is planned for days with low humidity and no rain for at least eight hours after the application. Exterior concrete should not be applied in cold weather; air temperatures should be between 65 and 75 degrees. The surface temperature of the existing concrete must be at least 50 degrees and stay above 40 degrees for at least 24 hours.
Concrete Resurfacing and Coatings Procedures:
- Make any structural repairs necessary, and mitigate drainage issues that contribute to cracking.
- Clean the existing surface to remove all organic matter including dirt, mildew, or algae.
- Patch chipped and cracked areas, fill divots, then smooth over all patches and let them dry.
- Spread the concrete resurfacing mixture to its optimal thickness. It stays workable for only a specific amount of time, so the job will be planned in sections.
- Smooth it out, adding textures for decoration or non-slip finishes.
- Block traffic until it is fully set.
