The Types of Decorative Concrete Overlays
Want to update or refresh the look or durability of your concrete floors without having to pay an arm and a leg? Instead of going all in for an expensive replacement, a concrete overlay helps hide imperfections while providing your floors with other great qualities, like appearance upgrades and greater durability. Here are the four main types of decorative concrete overlays:
The most common type of decorative concrete overlay is stamped overlays. They can give your concrete the look of a totally different type of material, such as wood, brick, tile, or stone. Though stampable overlays tend to be thin (between ¼ to ¾ inches) they are quite durable. Premier Polishing can spray or stamp on these overlays to provide your concrete floors the texture and appearance of your choosing. Contact us today to get started!
Microtopping is the installation of thin-section overlays atop your floors. There are a wide variety of different types of microtoppings — from spray-on deck products to high-end trowel-grade materials. With microtoppings, you can achieve more than 6,000 psi, making it potentially one of the most durable concrete overlays on the market.
Microtopping also gives you the greatest choice of colors and finishes, among the different varieties of overlays. One of microtopping’s greatest appeals is the wide range of finishes available to you to choose from. No matter if you need concrete overlays for residential or commercial purposes, microtopping is a great, highly utilitarian option that gives you the results you need at a great price.

Self-leveling overlays are usually used when there has been damage or notable wear-and-tear to your concrete. This type of overlay will provide you with a smooth new surface. However, as the installation of self-leveling overlays can be difficult, it’s crucial you have an overlay installation team that knows what they’re doing. With years of experience working on countless projects, Premier Polishing is the obvious choice for both residential and business applications. Learn more about our experience today!
