Acrylic Overlay Division

What is a decorative concrete overlay?
Concrete Transformations, LLC uses an acrylic polymer-modified cement-based topping to cover an existing concrete slab. With an overlay, we have the ability to give worn or lackluster concrete a decorative makeover for a fraction of the cost of replacement. We can add a number of patterns, textures or colors to existing concrete slabs and can simulate the look of natural stone, slate, brick or tile.

How thick is the overlay?
The overlay product we use can be applied from 1/8 to 1/2 inch thick.

Is it easy to clean?
Yes. As long as the proprietary sealer we applied to your overlay surface remains intact, a periodic cleaning using a hose and mild household detergent will keep your overlay surface looking great for years to come.

Will the new surface be cooler than concrete?
Yes. In fact, tests have shown that surfaces coated with the materials found in the overlay product we use were substantially cooler than bare concrete.

How long does the application process take?
Although every job is different, a typical residential application of less than 300 sq ft will take 2 to 3 days.

How will this overlay surface handle the freeze/thaw cycle we typically encounter?Great. The proprietary blend of polymers and resins found in the overlay material we use allows the new surface to maintain flexibility.

Will the new overlay surface be slippery?
The pattern and texture that you choose will determine the level of skid resistance. Tile and slate textures are naturally less skid resistant as compared to stone textures. For a nominal surcharge, we can also use a proprietary application technique to give the new overlay surface a grittier, more skid-resistant finish.

Does Concrete Transformations, LLC provide a warranty?
YES! We offer a 1 year warranty which covers new cracks (previous cracks are not warrantable), UV color fading and delamination. Your warranty can be extended an additional year with our cleaning and resealing treatment applied after 8 months but before your 1 year installation anniversary.
