How to Resurface Concrete
Here is an overview of the installation process(details vary depending on products being used)
1 - Prepare & Repair
Etch, or grind the concrete surface to make it porous. Fix cracks or other existing damage.
2 - Clean & Prime
Clean with a pressure washer and let surface thoroughly dry. Apply primer if necessary.
3 - Mix Product
Following instructions, mix the product to prepare it for application. Mix in color if necessary.
4 - Apply Overlay
Depending on the desired look, apply the overlay by spraying, rolling, or troweling.
5 - Add Patterns & Texture.
- This is completed using tape, hand-trowels, rakes, stamps and other specialty tools
6 - Cure & Seal
After the overlay cures, add a sealer for additional protection. Customers often ask us if outdoor concrete needs to be sealed, and our answer is always yes. A sealer will preserve the look of your concrete surface for longer. It also enhances its stain resistance and makes it easier to maintain.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does it look like?
How thick is it?
We generally apply our systems on old concrete between 3/32″ to 1/8″. CTI’s systems are thin layered cements which depend on adhesion through the use of modified acrylics.
How do you treat cracks on the concrete?
Cracks are addressed using our revolutionary “Smart Prep” System. The Smart Prep system offers a flexible bridge over the cracked area that allows the original concrete to move while not allowing any normal cracking to transmit through the CTi coating.
Is it cool to walk on?
Up to 40 degrees cooler than concrete.
30%-40% cooler than epoxy stone
