It is simple to give new life to old, worn and stained concrete floors with the concrete resurfacing solutions available at Granicrete Hawaii. Get rid of discoloration caused by mold, mildew and red dirt on your exterior concrete surfaces, or upgrade your standard concrete patio, driveway, pool deck and walkways with a Granicrete overlay.

Granicrete overlays are handcrafted by its certified installers to provide a unique finish every time. Preparation is a key step in the installation process, ensuring a proper bond and preventing peeling and lifting. Company installers will grind and thoroughly clean the surface, then apply the polymer-modified concrete overlay.

No two overlays will have the same design. The pattern is masked out by hand to fit the size and shape of the space and suit the homeowner’s needs and taste. A random stone — or flagstone look — is most popular and lends an island feel. Tile choices can be created in the size and orientation of your choice. You also can call attention to steps or outline a space with a decorative trim.

Personalize your overlay with the colors of your choosing; there are more than 60 different liquid and powdered colorants that can be mixed and layered to achieve various looks. Choose colors that will compliment the colors of the paint on your home and coordinate with your landscaping. Finally, a solvent-based sealer is applied to provide UV protection and an easy-toclean surface. The sealer also resists liquids, mold, mildew and dirt.

Take a look at the photo gallery on the company’s website to see how Granicrete overlays transform outdoor and indoor spaces.
