Cover up imperfections in your existing concrete, or turn your plain slab into something fabulous! With resurfaced concrete, commonly referred to as a concrete overlay, decorative overlay, or coating, we can give your interior floors, patios, walkways, driveways, retaining walls, accent walls, fireplaces and more, a full makeover at a much lower cost than removal and replacement.
Cain's Decorative Concrete is a premier concrete installer. We have been around for years and take great pride in offering custom and affordable concrete options. There isn't a better concrete contractor in the greater San Antonio area. Our team of contractors are expertly trained to deliver the best concrete work in town. There aren't any concrete resurfacing companies that can provide one-of-a-kind concrete craftsmanship, superior quality and legendary customer service.
Our products have been designed and engineered to withstand the test of time. We start with a unique rubberized polymer that allows our overlay to be flexible and cure to compression strength just under 5000 psi for the ultimate in durability for every season, in any region. Our vertical concrete overlays can be applied over wood, drywall, brick, and concrete to create a beautiful faux stone siding for your fireplaces, chimneys, retaining walls, and more. Our fiber-enriched coarse sand overlay mix creates a realistic surface that requires minimal upkeep. Our coloring system offers UV protection, and in combination with our sealers, creates a lasting surface.
There are a wide variety of resurfacing, or overlay, systems available for refinishing concrete flatwork, ranging from ultra-thin systems (also called microtoppings or skim coats) that can be applied in layers as thin as a credit card to floor underlayments that go on at thicknesses of up to an inch or more in one lift. Each overlay type offers different decorative options and performance attributes.
Decorative Options: Can be troweled to a texture or troweled silky smooth. You can incorporate color into the mix, broadcast dry pigments onto the surface while troweling for a marbleized appearance, or accent with stains and dyes.
Performance Attributes: These polymer-based systems are applied super thin, giving them the ability to flex, unlike other systems. They may also be applied to wall surfaces.
Decorative Options: Usually applied as a splatter coat or a knock-down (troweled) finish, and are ideal for use with paper or plastic stencils. Available precolored or can be integrally colored during mixing. Stains, dyes, or tints may be applied for accent color.
Performance Attributes: The textured finish is durable and skid-resistant, making it well-suited for surfaces such as pool decks, sidewalks, and driveways.
Decorative Options: Can be stamped and textured (similar to conventional stamped concrete) to mimic brick, slate, natural stone, and other materials. Color options include broadcast pigments, colored liquid or powdered releases, stains, dyes, and tinted sealers.
Performance Attributes: Are applied thickly enough to accept texture and cover minor imperfections in the concrete substrate.
Decorative Options: Can be left seamless (except at joints) or used as a canvas for sawcut or engraved designs. For color, mix in integral pigments or apply stains, dyes, or tints.
Performance Attributes: Restores structurally sound, yet worn, concrete surfaces and can be used to level uneven floors.
Decorative Options: Removal of weeds and moss that grow in the joints; refilling joints with sand as needed.
Performance Attributes: Restores structurally sound, yet worn, concrete in preparation for floor coverings. Provides a smooth, level base.
