Give Your Backyard New Life This Summer with a Pool Deck Overlay

Give Your Backyard New Life This Summer with a Pool Deck Overlay

An unsightly pool deck affects the look of your entire backyard. Not only does it make the pool look old and worn, but also takes away from all adjacent patios, decks, and landscaping. A new pool deck will give your backyard a new life, and make your pool look new again. Homeowners have several options and styles to choose from for their new pool deck.

An outright replacement is an option for a pool deck in disrepair. This comes with the task of ripping the old pool deck out, excavating, and replacing with new concrete. This is a costly undertaking and comes with the risk of damaging the pool itself. Many homeowners opt to leave their pool deck as is when faced with the cost of a complete replacement. A pool deck overlay is a much more cost efficient method that restores the integrity and beauty of your pool deck.

An overlay utilizes your existing pool deck as a base, eliminating the need of removing the concrete. This alone saves the owner a lot of money and time during the project. The overlay uses Carvestone, which is a concrete like material made from crushed limestone and quartz, offering a harder surface that is resistant to chipping. The process involves etching your current pool deck, applying primer, and then the Carvestone product. The beauty of this product is that the owner chooses the color and pattern so that it compliments their current landscaping. A variety of stone patterns and colors allow you to make your pool deck unique and stylish.

If you would like more information on giving your pool area a new look, or fix a pool deck in disrepair please contact us.

Resurface Your Walkway

Resurface Your Walkway For Your Visitors’ Sake

Are you starting to get bored by the dull appearance of your concrete walkway? Then maybe it’s time to resurface your walkway.

Your walkway is what visitors first encounter when stopping by at your house, and there’s only one chance to make a first impression. Instead of having them walk up to your house on a run-of-the-mill concrete walkway, improve the general beauty of your home  by beautifying your walkway, so that they will be duly impressed and will enter your house with raised spirits.

Your walkway may even be chipped and broken, which can lead to your visitors tripping or stumbling on your walkway, something you definitely do not want.

By resurfacing your walkway with Carvestone, which is made of natural limestone, you can choose from a variety of colors with which to improve the appearance of your front lawn. You also have the option of choosing between various patterns and styles, so that your walkway will be perfectly customized to your taste. Carvestone will not easily be chipped or damaged. It is made with quartz, one of the strongest existing minerals.

We resurface walkways, and we can improve your day by giving your house a whole new look with your beautiful Carvestone walkway.

If you are fed up with encountering the same boring black concrete walkway each day when you walk out the door in the morning, we have just the perfect solution for you. Contact us for more information, and we will be glad to help you out.

Concrete Resurfacing for your Walkways

Concrete Resurfacing – Houston, Dallas, Austin


Your concrete sidewalks and other walkways are second only to your driveway in the amount of traffic they see. Often, they are treated with salts in the winter months as well as other harsh and abrasive cleaners. All that wear and tear from daily traffic and chemical abuse can have a huge toll on your walkways. You could start seeing abrasions, stains, cracking, and eventual freeze thaw damage. However, the good news is the damage is typically only superficial and it’s possible to easily restore your high traffic walkways while avoiding the costly measures of having to remove and replace the walkway. This being possible by the use of a concrete overlay coating, such as carvestone.

Consider Carvestone

Carvestone was developed in 1992 as a concrete coating that would have the appearance and feel of real stone, but with all the benefits of concrete. Originally, carvestone was used to restore historical buildings due to its durability and the ease at which it can be tooled and colored to match any layout. Carvestone is a blend of concretes and minerals, such as limestone and quartz, and provides a strong and durable coating that won’t wear down or crack under normal circumstances. If it does crack, however, repairs are not only quick and easy but virtually unnoticeable!

Carvestone is a great option and can transform your backyard.

Our Projects

Each carvestone project we do is treated as a work of art. Our carvestone is hand tooled into the shapes or patterns you think would best suit your space; no stencils, no stones, and no tape required. It is also hand colored using a wide variety of shades to choose from. Our projects are guaranteed slip and chip resistant, durable, and one of a kind. Each one comes with a seven year warranty, and not because we ever see anything actually go wrong with the projects, but because we want our customers to know they’re in good hands.

If you want a beautiful one of a kind treatment for your concrete walkway that lasts, consider our carvestone treatments. If you would like to know more or see our gallery of examples, feel free to contact us.

What is Decorative Concrete?

Decorative concrete is more than just simple, white concrete stones used for pavement purposes as it adds a real aesthetic value to the mixture as well. The different materials that are added do not detract from the inherent strength of the concrete, but instead add different colors and textures which make it appropriate for the same types of uses as standard concrete.

Decorative concrete can be used in the same manner as standard concrete for the home which includes the patio, walkways, driveways and more. It is somewhat more expensive than standard concrete, but the added aesthetic value really adds to the beauty of the home.

Concrete resurfacing in Houston does not have to mean tearing up your whole backyard or driveway and you can have something that will last longer and look better as well. For more on concrete resurfacing in Houston with CarveStone, call us today at 1-800-GO-STONE.

Why Choose Decorative Concrete?

There are a number of reasons to consider decorative concrete in Houston. For many homeowners, decorative concrete has really expanded the way they have been able to add real value to their properties.

Color Choices: Because homeowners are not limited to one choice of colors as they are with standard concrete options, they can choose the right color that really augments their landscaping. Darker colors in particular help highlight certain aspects of their yard which simply isn’t possible with standard concrete.

Different Textures: Not only is decorative concrete a different color, but it offers different textures as well. This is due to the materials which are added to the concrete in the mixing process. You can go over the options with the best decorative concrete Houston TX contractor to ensure that you get the right texture and color of your choice.

Durable: Decorative concrete retains the same elements that make standard concrete an attractive option as well. This form of concrete is highly durable and long lasting, able to withstand the elements for many years to come. This is one reason why durable concrete makes for a great investment.

There is little doubt that durable concrete offers many options for homeowners who are looking to improve the aesthetic look of their property with a long-term investment that will also preserve the resale value as well. The many different choices that this form of concrete offers allows homeowners real options when it comes to creating pool decks, patios and porches that stand out in their yard.

You can start the process by contacting the professional decorative concrete contractors Houston Concrete who have the knowledge, experience and expertise to install what you need to improve your home. Plus, you can actually choose the type and color of concrete that works best with the overall look of your property as well.

Try CarveStone When You Need Concrete Coating in Houston

Your home’s curb appeal can include a driveway that not only functions as a pathway for cars, but also has the look and feel that fits in with your home’s design. Concrete coating can be expensive and there is always the possibility you could have cracking and other problems within a few years. However, there are better options for concrete coating. In Houston, you can get Carvestone, which is stronger, better-looking and can be custom-made for less than you would pay for real stone. Allied Outdoor Solutions in Houston installs Carvestone to help bring style and personality to driveways, patios, walkways and pool decks that would otherwise look bland. They accomplish this with no messy tear outs and by crafting each and every job by hand to fit exactly what the customer wants. Our experts will hand-grout, hand-carve and hand-trowel any project involving concrete resurfacing. In Houston, you need something that will take the abuse the weather dishes out as well as the heavy load of cars, trucks and other vehicles on your driveway. It is also great for pool deck resurfacing. Carvestone can meet the demands needed for a solid concrete surface that will fulfill every desire you have for your home.

Some use other methods such as spray-on or stamped concrete for concrete coating. Houston is known for foundation problems and erratic weather, so doing it using these methods sometimes results in cracks within a short period of time. CarveStone is known to last as long as a decade and even longer. Some concrete overlay projects will only last about two to three years. CarveStone also comes with a 7-year warranty in the rare instance that something should happen.

Also, Carvestone has a more realistic stone appearance than stamped concrete and spray-on, which can really enhance the look of your home and add value to it. Also, it is stronger than concrete, with a 5800 PSI rating.

Another great aspect of having Carvestone installed is that there are no messy tear outs. Methods such as stamped concrete coating in Houston homes require a messy tear out and that can cause all kinds of problems and result in having to make adjustments that interfere with your normal everyday activities. We can do a concrete overlay with minimal interference to you. Our experts will hand craft each project to fit your style and create a work of art that will add beauty to your home as well as value.

Allied Outdoor Solutions is committed to bringing customer’s excellent outdoor concrete coating in Houston with Carvestone and we can also help if you have pea gravel, pool coping, brink or pool deck surfaces. For more on getting concrete coating in Houston with Carvestone, call 1-800-GO-STONE.
