Decorative Stained Concrete Overlay San Antonio and Dallas, Tx

Ok so I decided to show you all the wonderful world of microtoppings and concrete overlay systems here in Dallas and San Antonio. Overlays are a beautiful addition to the stained concrete process. They add that extra beauty and character that stained concrete floors offer.

First off, let’s talk about the character that concrete overlays or decorative concrete micro-toppings create. The trial marks. Because these micro-toppings are applied by hand, they will leave trial marks. Here at holland Custom Floors we like to create a “fan motion”. This means instead of applying the overlay in boring and unnatural straight lines we create a look that adds that extra character by applying it in half circles. This is heavily desired by customers.

Secondly, lets talk about the “mirroring effect”. Because concrete overlays are thin they will mirror what is under the overlay. For example if you are applying the micro-topping over a rough concrete patio that has a rough broom finish, you will still see some of those broom marks. These looks can be very appealing to many.

Lastly, to illustrate I have posted my video of a recent stained concrete overlay of a patio, porch and walk way on YOUTUBE. See below. If you would like more info then please do not hesitate to contact Kenneth Holland at kgholland06@gmail.com
