Stamped Concrete Overlays Installation Process

When the professionals from Bullion Coatings do concrete stamping, they will first prepare a floor’s surface. This means that it will be cleaned, and any small holes and patches will be filled. The surface is also profiled. In other words, the surface is given a rough texture so that it holds on to the overlay in the right manner.

The concrete mixture is applied with a gauge rake, after some time, the imprints are done with stamping mats, then the coloring is applied. There are various color choices you can pick from which can complement your home or commercial building design. Sienna Rust is ideal for walkways and patios for a strong first impression, and Coral Reef is best for you if you are after a simple and elegant finish.

The final step is to give your new concrete stamping a seal. The thickness of the newly installed concrete ranges from 1/4 to 3/4 inch, depending on the depth of the imprint. This type of overlay needs to be resealed every two to three years depending on surrounding environmental conditions and traffic. This type of installation takes about 5 hours compared to the 10 to 12 hours of some other flooring options.
