When a concrete slab is structurally sound but visually unappealing, it may be time to consider a decorative concrete overlay. Decorative concrete overlays allow for restoration without tearing out and replacing the concrete slab. This saves time, destruction, and disruption.
SM Professional Grade®
SM Professional Grade is a sprayable and trowel-applied resurfacing material capable of holding moderate and light textures. Combined with stencils, design tape, and masking, SM Professional Grade can also be used to create a variety of simple and intricate designs. Apply SM Professional Grade with a hopper-gun for light stippled texture, great for pool decks and other non-slip applications.

Use Micro-Topping for a smooth “like new” concrete surface. Micro-Topping is a very thin, polymer-modified grout mix that forms a uniform surface over existing concrete. When faced with tired or distressed concrete, use Micro-Topping to lend new life and beauty. When applied over structurally sound concrete, Micro-Topping can withstand heavy foot traffic found in commercial, retail, and residential applications. Use SM Professional Grade as a base-coat.

Stamp concrete without pouring a new slab. Stampable Overlay is applied over existing, structurally sound concrete, stamped using Brickform textures marked “S/O”, and allowed to cure.

Stampable Overlay comes in two varieties: SC-60 is a white mix colored with Overlay Liquid Colorant while OL-60 is a gray mix compatible with Color Hardener.
