Concrete Resurfacing

When unsightly, old and damaged concrete is no longer acceptable the option for concrete resurfacing should be your top choice. Concrete floors over time will often develop cracks, show surface spalling, stain, and begin to deteriorate.

Typically the structural concrete slab will be fine but its surface is in need of repair and concrete resurfacing. Elite Crete Systems has been leading the concrete resurfacing industry for decades and has a wide variety of products and systems to choose from.

Once it has been determined that something needs to be done about the old concrete, the fun begins! Concrete resurfacing systems open the door to wide range of design and decor options. There are purely functional concrete resurfacing products that will look and feel similar to standard grey concrete floor, but for those who want to take their concrete flooring to whole new level, decorative concrete systems should be considered.

Here are some common concrete resurfacing systems with overviews of what the look and design can be expected from each:

Broom Finish Concrete - Skim, Bond or Broom Coat

This system is designed to resurface concrete with a very thin layer of polymer modified cement. This thin layer can be squeegeed and smoothed out at 1/8th inch thick or less to provide a vibrant new surface to damaged concrete. Because of its thin nature, the concrete should be patched and leveled prior to the application so that any imperfections are corrected. This product can be colored and applied with a variety of textures to create a cost effective and limitless design to beautify concrete slabs and floors.

Splatter Texture - Splatter, Knock down, Sprayed texture concrete

Often found around pool decks and large outdoor patios and walkways. This functional concrete resurfacing system provides a textured, slip resistant finish that can be efficiently applied with a hopper spray gun. The final look is that similar to a splattered wall finish standard in many homes. The texture helps the surface stay cool for bare feet in the hot sun and creates a functional anti-slip surface for wet areas. This texture is most often installed on top of a skim or bond coat and can then be coated in any color similar to a painted surface top while providing a sealed, consistent floor finish.

Thin Stamped Overlay - Stamped topping, Stamped concrete overlay, Texture Pave

When a natural custom look is what you are after, a thin stamped overlay will provide a new surface to your concrete that resembles stone, rock, slate or wood. When resurfacing concrete with a thin stamped overlay, you can expect to cover the concrete with 3/16” to 5/8” of material and then imprint or stamp a pattern into the freshly placed material. When using thin stamped materials you are limited to thin, or shallow stamp mats that require only minimal material displacement. These systems are ideal for interior and exterior spaces where a textured finish is desired that resembles a natural material or paver.
