Enhance your exterior with designer looks created by Granicrete Hawaii’s concrete flooring overlays. Pool decks and patios can be given a makeover in time for you to enjoy outdoor living this summer. Or, you can wow your guests with hand-crafted, custom designs that complement your landscaping and suit your lifestyle.

Decorative concrete overlays are excellent for a variety of surfaces and are becoming increasingly popular because of their unmatched durability, versatility and affordability.

Granicrete flooring is designed to resurface, rather than replace, existing concrete, tile and wood. Turn your moldy and discolored concrete slabs into a luxurious and inviting space. Existing flooring does not need to be level. Granicrete’s polymer-modified concrete is trowelled on by hand and follows the contour of your flooring. The Granicrete product line is used from start to finish and is formulated to endure the wear of high-traffic areas and all types of weather. The products have been tested for more than 12 years, producing great results for customers around the world.

The flooring look of your dreams is possible with unlimited design, color and texture possibilities. Customers are able to achieve a custom look, tailored to suit their needs. Installers assist in the design process and create sample boards for customers, allowing them to see how it looks at their home and make any changes, if needed, prior to installation.

Dramatic transformations are completed in three to five days. Installers thoroughly clean and prepare the surface first, to ensure the base layer adheres to it, leaving no air gap, and preventing peeling and lifting. If a stone look is desired, the pattern is taped out by hand, and no stamping is involved. Then, the texture layers are trowelled on. Coloring is done by hand to create an authentic stone look or decorative finish. The sealer is then applied and is dry within hours. Satin or gloss sealants are available for either a natural or wet look.

Stained concrete finishes or natural stone looks like flagstone, slate and travertine are achieved, yet more affordable. Easy maintenance also yields savings for years to come. Flooring is completely sealed to resist stains and moisture, and will not hold mold and bacteria. Cleaning is a breeze — simply sweep, mop and pressure wash with low PSI. Sealers also are UV resistant to protect against fading. Re-sealing about every two years maintains the integrity of the color and texture.

Granicrete Hawaii’s concrete overlays are great for resurfacing driveways, pool decks, patios, walkways and interior flooring. They also are excellent on vertical surfaces for creating custom barbecues, bars, fireplaces, walls and backsplashes.
