Installation Process

One of the many benefits of decorative concrete overlay is how quickly it can be installed and how non-invasive the process is. Our tested and proven Spray Mark and Hallmark System can literally transform your concrete surfaces overnight without having to remove the existing concrete. 

As easy as 1, 2, 3...

Step 1

The original concrete surface is prepared by acid etching with a diluted solution of muriatic acid and water. The area is then pressure washed with a 3500psi machine or more.

Step 2

Once the preparation is complete, a texture coat is applied by spraying a main color and then highlighting with 2 to 3 different colors to provide depth and realism.

Step 3

Once step 2 is complete, an acrylic enamel seal coat is applied that makes the new coat impervious to fading, stains, the elements and will keep the concrete floors looking new for years to come.

As a CTI dealer, Concrete Innovation Technologies offer two main systems: The Hallmark System and the F1 System. The Hallmark System is a color integrated, modified acrylic cement product made of Portland cement, silica sand and a modified acrylic resin for its bonding agent. The  F1 Fast Floor System is a unique, cutting edge technology that allows to coat to garage floors, workshops, basements and even commercial floors in one just day. The clean, modern look offered by the F1 System makes it perfect for home and business owners alike. 

The F1 base coat is applied with the color of your choosing, spray poly vinyl chips into the wet base coat and then seal with the F1 System coat without the color to provide a tough, chemical resistant floor.

Concrete resurfacing systems come with a 10-year limited material warranty against, dramatic fading, de-lamination, and general product failure.

Benefits of Decorative Concrete Overlay

Aesthetic appeal

Decorative concrete offers a wide range of design options, including stamped patterns, colored finishes, and textured surfaces. This versatility allows property owners to achieve various looks that mimic more expensive materials like stone, tile, or wood at a fraction of the cost.


Decorative concrete is known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear. It can withstand heavy foot traffic, weather fluctuations, and other environmental factors, making it a long-lasting investment. The finish on decorative concrete is also waterproof and bacteria proof. Any spills, mildew or algae washes off easily.

Low maintenance

Compared to traditional flooring options, decorative concrete is relatively low maintenance. Regular cleaning and occasional resealing are typically sufficient to keep it in good condition. This can save property owners time and money on upkeep.

Cost effectiveness

Decorative concrete can be a cost-effective alternative to other high-end materials. It allows property owners to achieve a luxurious appearance without the hefty price tag associated with premium materials.


Decorative concrete is not limited to indoor flooring; it can be used for driveways, patios, pool decks, and more. Its versatility makes it a valuable option for various applications in both residential and commercial settings.

Increased property value

Enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a property through decorative concrete can positively impact its overall value. Potential buyers or renters often find well-maintained and visually appealing concrete surfaces attractive.
