Concrete Paver Overlays
Adding Flair To Something Drab
Whether or not you purchased a home that already had a concrete patio or you decided to have concrete installed because it seemed like the best option, we can help you to add flair to that concrete by doing a concrete paver overlay. A concrete paver overlay is the placement of interlocking concrete pavers over existing concrete pavement. This is a great avenue to pursue if you're looking to spruce up your old walkways, patios, pool decks, or the front entry area of your house.
Does Your Concrete Qualify?
There are a few pre-qualifying questions that we have to ask in order for your concrete to qualify for an overlay:
- Are there any cracks in the concrete?
- Are there any places that are uneven?
- Is there a doorway leading to the patio?
- If the answer is yes, there has to be a minimum of 2-3/8" of height from the existing concrete patio to the threshold
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may mean that we need to take a few extra steps in preparing the concrete surface for pavers. It all depends on the severity of the cracks, which could indicate a more serious problem that an overlay cannot fix like expansive soils or water that is trapped underneath the concrete.
The Final Product & Pricing
It costs approximately $16 - $20 per sf. for a concrete paver overlay. The final product is a gorgeous outdoor living space that is customizable in paver style, color, and texture. Unlike a poured concrete patio, interlocking pavers offer a beautiful individualized solution that is sure to match your home and personal tastes.
