What Is a Polished Concrete Overlay?
A polished concrete overlay or veneer is a cement-based, polymer-modified, self-smoothing compound that can be installed in any space over a structurally sound substrate. Project Concrete has perfected the art of hand-crafted overlay systems, and we are more than happy to guide you through the process.
The biggest advantage of using polished concrete overlays is that you can select colours that suit your interior design. Our decorative concrete overlays are the perfect floor to complement your property and add that wow factor to your space.
To create your polished concrete overlay system, Project Concrete will hand-mix the cement with your desired colour on-site, then carefully trowel the material onto the existing floor or substrate. This application technique not only reduces waste but allows for a truly unique finish.
Why Choose Project Concrete for Your Concrete Overlay Floor?
Our extensive knowledge and experience with polymer-modified cement polishing allow for a truly seamless experience. Firstly, we consult with our clients to create a concrete veneer that reflects their design wants and needs.
What’s more, we are always transparent with our customers about what can and can not be achieved. Finally, we bring together our passionate team to create beautiful, unique, hand-crafted, polished concrete overlay floors.
Contact us today to take the first step towards creating your dream floor with a polished concrete overlay.
Creating Your Overlay Floor
First, you’ll choose from a wide variety of base colours, then decide whether to add an aggregate finish. We have a range of colours and stone mixes to suit every property and style, so sit back and let the expert designers at Project Concrete help you find the perfect aggregate and mix for your needs.
Below you’ll see some of the base colour options available, and there are many more to choose from. In regards to aggregates, we can source small and large stone mixes from many of the largest concrete suppliers in Perth. We can provide any decorative concrete effect you choose.
Naturally, we’d be happy to help you find the right mix. Give us a call or fill out our contact form to get started.
Benefits of Choosing Polished Concrete Overlays
Polished concrete overlays are steadily rising in popularity for residential and commercial projects, and it’s easy to see why. We’re going to take a close look to discover the numerous benefits associated with choosing polished concrete for flooring in homes, offices, stores, warehouses, and even for an outdoor living space or patio.
Polished Concrete Overlays Are Perfect for Problem Floors
If you have an existing concrete slab for your floor, it probably has some scratches, cracks, spalling, thin spots, or pits that need fixing. One option for repairing damaged concrete floors is a re-polish, but the technique doesn’t always result in a perfectly smooth surface since flaws can still show through after the final polishing.
By installing a polished concrete overlay, you can eliminate those worn spots from heavy traffic, cracks, fractures, and other flaws—without having to shell out cash for an expensive replacement. If your existing slab does have numerous cracks or imperfections, we’ll use a sandblaster to grind down and reprofile the floor in situ. The reprofiling also helps eliminate dangerous elevation problems.
After we’ve removed every crack and only structurally sound substrate remains, we’ll start the seeding and overlay process. By the time we finish the last dyes and coatings, we will have transformed your drab concrete slab floor to a gorgeous, high-gloss finish.
Endless Customisation and Design Options
One of the best reasons to install a polished concrete overlay system is the huge range of customisation options. You have a virtually endless combination of design elements, textures, colours, and patterns to choose from, all of which will elevate the look of your space.
If you’re doing some home renovation, we have a vast selection of decorative concrete overlays and aggregate to seamlessly match your interior space and décor. It may sound clichéd, but the only limit is your imagination! The team at Project Concrete has the skills and knowledge to incorporate any design scheme you want using our decorative concrete overlays.
Add Unique Design Elements and Aggregates to Transform Your Floor
One popular request from many of our customers is to use coloured or exposed aggregate, which can turn a plain polished concrete overlay into a veritable work of art. When we seed the aggregate, it forms a thin surface layer of rich colour that will never fade or grow dull.
Another common request from our residential clients is using our concrete overlays to mimic more expensive materials, like terrazzo, tiles, brick, or even a Pandomo floor. We have the talent and skill to handle that design challenge with ease, and when your polished concrete floor is installed, even you won’t be able to tell the difference from the real thing.
Should you ever want to, a polished concrete floor also forms the perfect surface for design upgrades. For example, you could lay down decorative rugs, wall-to-wall carpet, or even tiles over the top for a quick and inexpensive design change.
The polished concrete floors we create at Project Concrete form the perfect surface for additional design elements, such as flecks of sand for texture, chips of coloured glass or aggregate, even stamps or stencils—the options are endless.
Fast Turnaround Time
Another great benefit to choosing a concrete overlay system is the fast turnaround time. Once we have a flat and level surface to work on, we’ll start the preparation stage for your new polished overlay. After that, you can expect the installation to take around 24 hours, depending on the size and complexity of the project. In fact, installing a real concrete overlay is the perfect choice for renovation and construction projects on a tight schedule.
Before we handle the installation, you’ll have to choose which concrete overlay system you want for your commercial or residential flooring project. Here at Project Concrete, we’re proud to offer ULTRATOP, one of the most beautiful and durable concrete overlays available. We offer three different finishes:
- Natural Effect, with a matte-finish overlay
- Polished Effect, with a high-gloss, high-shine surface
- Terrazzo Effect, which uses colour aggregate to mimic a terrazzo design for a much lower price
Concrete Overlays Are Cost-Effective
Did you know that a concrete overlay system is one of the most affordable flooring options? Whether you’re reprofiling an existing concrete slab in preparation for a polished overlay system or you’re starting from scratch, there’s no doubt that using cement-based products is incredibly cost-effective.
One of the most popular installation requests we get from our customers is our ULTRATOP terrazzo effect concrete overlay. The system uses exposed aggregate to create a gorgeous design pattern that perfectly mimics the look of terrazzo. There’s only one difference: the price.
According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost per square foot for terrazzo floors is between $34 and $122. In contrast, the average price of a cement-based, polished concrete overlay costs between $4 per square foot for a simple polished concrete floor and $40 for a high-end installation with decorative concrete overlays.
As you can see, polished concrete overlays are a much more affordable option. It’s also a money-saving alternative to replacing an existing cement or concrete slab floor.
Durable and Stain-Resistant
Another reason why polished concrete overlays are so cost-effective is due to the inherent strength of concrete. As a cement-based product, concrete is already incredibly strong and durable. However, the addition of sand substrate within the cement mixture forms an extremely dense material with properties ideal for flooring material.
Our concrete overlay systems are also virtually maintenance-free due to their high resistance to extreme temperatures, stains, wet weather, mould and mildew, dirt, and daily wear and tear.
Our team also uses an anti-fracture membrane and expansion joints to ensure that your concrete overlay system will remain resistant to damage such as cracks, worn spots, or fractures. Since the surface of your concrete overlay system will have a high-polish finish, your floor will only require a minimum of maintenance to keep it in excellent condition.
