5 Reasons You Need Carvestone Concrete Overlay for Your Home

Here are the top 5 Reasons You Need Carvestone Concrete Overlay for Your Home

If you are considering doing some upgrades to your home, you may want to think about ways that you can add more curb appeal. Customized exterior improvements are a great way to do this. Unique Carvestone concrete overlay for walkways, porches and entrances can make a huge impact on your home’s appearance. Here are five reasons you should consider this popular exterior improvement.

Concrete Overlays Add Interest

Unlike traditional concrete, Carvestone overlays allow you to add your own unique flair to your home. There are a huge number of color and style choices that simply cannot be accomplished any other way. Most concrete applications are simply sprayed or stamped on, but Carvestone overlays are hand-crafted. Since each project is carved, colored and grouted by hand, your home will be truly unique from your neighbors.

Concrete Overlays Add Value

Not only do concrete overlays add interest and elegance to your entrance, patio or other outdoor areas of your home, they also add value. A home with beautiful landscaping is always more desirable and yields a higher price on the market. Not only that, but the ability to use the space adds daily living value to the home for you and your family.

Concrete Overlays Cover Minor Flaws

If the concrete paths, walkways and porches around your home have been through a few season changes, it will likely show cracks, missing chunks and uneven areas. Although repairs do help to regain the structural integrity, they don’t always match up the best. With Carvestone concrete overlays, you don’t have to look at those unsightly patches any longer, because they will be completely covered by a warm, natural looking surface.

Carvestone Concrete Overlays are Rugged

Carvestone is tough, in fact, it’s nearly twice as strong as concrete. That means it’s long-lasting and durable and it also comes with a full 7 year warranty. However, if anything does happen to go wrong with your concrete overlay, Carvestone is also easy to repair. Unlike other concrete overlay surfaces, any repairs will never be seen.

Carvestone Has A Natural Look

For a unique, durable beauty, Carvestone is made with crushed limestone and natural-quarried quartz. You get a realistic stone appearance that is not equaled by any other concrete overlay surface. In fact, no one will ever guess that it’s concrete, not stone, lining your walk. It’s that convincing.

It Starts With a Pool Deck Overlay – Create an Outdoor Entertainment Space

A pool deck is a great place to hang out and enjoy the warmer months. With an upgrade of a pool deck overlay, a pool deck can be a fantastic place to hang out all year round.

Getting a Pool Deck Overlay

A pool deck overlay is how this facelift begins. A CarveStone coating can be customized to the look of your home, and it looks and behaves like real stone. Additionally, the surface is safer, with slip resistant qualities. No tear-out of your existing pool deck area is necessary, the CarveStone is applied directly over it. Most of the first day of the installation is spent prepping the area to prevent delamination, so the CarverStone adheres permanently to the existing surface. This is the where your outdoor entertainment area begins.

Appliances to Consider

Consider how you enjoy entertaining. A wood-burning pizza oven and a fire pit to gather around is a great start. You can also add a full propane-powered cooking unit and grill, as well as a refrigeration unit.

Furniture to Consider

An outdoor table for enjoying meals, or use chairs around a lower table to simply create a space to enjoy drinks and snacks with family and guests. If you do not want to do more than grill on your pool deck, a bar with seating makes a fun spot to gather.

It starts with a consultation for the pool deck overlay. Find out how affordable it is to get rid of your ugly pool stone. It’s a fast and painless process to get a free estimate to upgrade your pool deck, so you can turn it into a fully functioning entertainment space. Contact us for your quote today.
