Overlay for your Driveway: A Great Way To Enhance The Look Of Your Home

Overlay for your Driveway: A Great Way To Enhance The Look Of Your Home


Overlay for your Driveway… Allied Outdoor Solutions has many options.

When you own a home, there are many different areas to take care of. But one area that you should definitely not ignore is your driveway. Having an outdated, beaten up, and distressed driveway can easily affect the overall appearance of your home. That’s why you should consider overlay on driveways in order to make your home look newer and greatly increase its curb appeal with a fresh-looking driveway.

If your driveway looks shabby, it’s going to affect your home. This could be especially important if you are trying to either make your home look nicer or if you are trying to sell your home. On the other hand, a new-looking driveway will not only make your house look better, but will also have your driveway function better.

Overlay for your Driveway

Why concrete overlay?

Replacing an entire driveway can be a long and tedious process. So why not consider an alternative that will have your driveway looking brand-new with only a fraction of the time and the cost? Additionally, an overlay will make your driveway a showpiece of your home. If you have a hard time envisioning what your driveway could look like, then take a moment to look at our previous work.

At Allied Outdoor Solutions, we will take your driveway from shabby to chic. It’s important to have a good-looking and functional driveway, and with an overlay, we’ll be able to achieve just that. So if you want to make your house and driveway stand out, you should consider a driveway overlay. To learn more about our process and products, please contact us.

3 Occasions When You Will Be Glad You Invested in an Outdoor Living Area

As spring rolls around each year, you promise yourself that this is the year you are going to make improvements to your outdoor space and enjoy it. For one reason or another, you put off adding that new patio or outdoor kitchen, and the summer passes you by. This year is the right time to improve your outdoor space with an outdoor living area. With a new outdoor kitchen, patio or fire pit, you can plan some amazing events this summer for your family and friends. Here are three occasions when you will love having an improved space.

 

Fourth of July

This year, celebrate the birth of the country in style with a new outdoor kitchen. You will be able to take your burgers and hotdogs to a whole new level. With an outdoor kitchen, you will have plenty of work area to prepare the sides that go with your meal. If you add an outdoor refrigerator, you will have space to keep easily spoiled items without constantly running in and out of the house.

 

Dinner Party

Invite your favorite friends over to enjoy your new outdoor space. Instead of hosting the dinner party inside, move your party out on to your new deck. If you invest in an outdoor kitchen, you can prepare the food there while visiting with your friends. You will find your friends angling for dinner invitations for the rest of the summer.

 

Kid’s Night

You do not want to leave the youngest members of your family out of the fun. Let your children invite their friends over for an evening of outdoor fun. You can bring out the board games and let the kids play on the new patio or enjoy a pizza cooked in your outdoor kitchen after running around the yard. At the end of the evening, you can start-up the fire pit, and let the kids make their own s’mores.

 

At Allied Outdoor Solutions, we are ready to help you plan your new outdoor space. Contact us today to learn more.

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.

Carvestone Surfaces for Your Home

Carvestone Surfaces for Your Home


The Carvestone process originated in Europe where it has been used in restoring monuments and historic places. Carvestone Coatings received a United States patent and trademark in December, 1979.

Adding a coating of hardened, treated, colored and carved concrete and quartz compound is an economical and decorative way of resurfacing. It has become a popular way of refinishing patios, driveways, walkways and outdoor extensions of the home.

Carvestone can be installed over old concrete

The Carvestone coating can be placed over old concrete, undamaged tile, brickwork, and various kinds of deck and pool coping. It can bind smooth pea gravel into an unbroken surface. It makes an excellent pool deck surface. It creates a very hard surface, three-eights of an inch in thickness, rated strong.

The exciting thing about Carvestone is that the unbroken surface is carved, colored and grouted during installation by expert technically trained artisans. The look of Carvestone goes way beyond the appearance of mere treated, died or stenciled concrete. The un-repetitious patterns and tints can’t be distinguished from rich, beautiful tile of your choice. The tile look is applied right on site while the coating is laid.
Carvestone is also a seamless surface. It has the look of individual paving stones. Realistic grouting is applied in a decorative way. However, there are no spaces. Weeds will never grow through the it. It will not crack along seams from ice or moisture.

Carvestone Surfaces for Your Home can be installed without tearing out your original paving. The work goes much faster than it would if original surfaces would have to be removed. It minimizes damage to your lawn and structures. The economy of Carvestone comes from the fact that you do not have to buy volumes of paving stones and the substrates to support them.
If you are looking for paving to enhance the outdoor enjoyment of your home, call us today at 1-800-GO-STONE.
