The process

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.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it look like?
CTI’s systems achieve a look, texture and color of any type stone, concrete wood look or any look you require. A base coat is applied that fixes any imperfections in the original concrete. A design is then laid over it and a hopper gun shoots on a textured layer over that. A final clear coat is put over the system that is nonporous and protects it as well as makes it very easy to maintain. Mold, mildew, motor oil, etc. can be sprayed off with a regular garden hose. Common detergents can be used to remove tough or repetitive latencies.
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?
Here is how CTI’s systems compare to other coatings as far as heat retention:
Up to 40 degrees cooler than concrete.
30%-40% cooler than epoxy stone
50% cooler than vinyl or urethane
40%-50% cooler than wood decks
Up to 40% cooler than carpet
50%-60% cooler than terrazzo
40%-50% cooler than tile
20%-30% cooler than brick

Colors of the product and texture chosen will effect the overall temperature of the surface.

How do you treat control or expansion joints?
All existing control joints should remain in the surface to allow for expansion and contraction of the original concrete. They are not coated with the CTI system and are masked off. We can, however, work to insure these joints match the rest of the look of the surfaces.
