When it comes to remodeling and construction, concrete is a common choice among homeowners, designers, architects, contractors, and anyone involved in the project. It has proven its reliability through the centuries. In fact, it is almost considered as a staple material for structures, walls, floors, and more. A concrete patio, although durable and reliable, could acquire damages, just like any other material out there. This is where concrete’s versatility comes into play. Decorative overlays and coatings can transform any concrete slab into an impressively appealing and functional surface.
Recommended Patio Coatings: Stamped Overlays, Stained Concrete, Knockdown Finish
The patio is an extension of the indoor living space. It provides all the comfort of a living room but in an outdoor setting. This being said, the concrete surface must also be comfortable, appealing, and safe to walk on. Before you decide to have the current slab you have torn out, there is a more practical alternative: decorative concrete coatings and overlays.
Stamped Concrete Overlay – This involves the use of a concrete overlay which is applied thinly on an existing patio. Once it is leveled and firm, stamp mats are laid out in sections until the featured pattern is imprinted on the overlay. The result is a very appealing surface that is durable and slip-resistant. A stamped patio is known for being able to mimic the look of natural stone, pavers, brick, wood, and other materials.
Stained Concrete – If you are okay with the plain gray color of concrete, then you are good to go. But if you want to change it to something more suitable to your taste or to the current design of your home, then concrete staining is an ideal option. If you want a natural stone look, an acid stain is a suitable option. It produces unique effects on the concrete that looks stunning and elegant. If you want a more uniform color all throughout, then water-based stains are right up your alley.
Spray Knockdown Texture – Slip-resistance is an important aspect when it comes to patios. This acrylic spray down concrete system yields a non-skid texture that looks stunning and feels comfortable underfoot. The texture is created when the material is sprayed on the deck then knocked down with a trowel. This is also known for its cool surface, making it a comfortable surface to walk on even with bare feet.
Patio Resurfacing, Refinishing, and Repairing Cost
Resurfacing or refinishing a concrete patio is an inexpensive way of breathing new life into it. However, there is no fixed rate when it comes to this type of concrete restoration. There are several factors that could affect the total cost. The size of the job is one of the most influential factors. The bigger the space, the more cost it would incur since contractors charge per square foot. The level of surface preparation also plays a huge role. If the patio requires several concrete repairs, then costs could get high. Other factors include the type of application you choose, the material used, and any other additional services, like custom scoring or hand-staining.

I used Las Vegas Concrete Artisans to do my pool deck area and they were amazing! Not only were they helpful in showing samples, colors etc… they were extremely organized and beyond efficient! I plan on using them in the future for more projects! I would highly recommend this company!
Las Vegas Concrete Artisans were a pleasure to work with. From the beginning of the process (project review, bid estimate, contract) to the final step (sealing my new porch and walkway), the team was courteous, professional, accommodating and thorough. Other than the weather prolonging the process, everything happened in order, as stated and without problems. I love my new walkway/porch and would recommend MCA to everyone!
