How durable is Granicrete overlay system?
Our system is tested having greater comprehensive and flexural strength than concrete. Such characteristics can yield decades of low maintenance and durability.
We do not degrade our product by adding plasticisers, cheap sands, and retarders. Our system is pure and fortified with our Super Concentrated Polymer which we do not pre-dilute with water.
For exterior projects around pools and decks, Granicrete's overlay can be as much as 30 degrees cooler than concrete so you can enjoy your outdoor activities without burning bare feet. Granicrete has millions of square feet of overlay flooring across several continents that have been in use for nearly 15 years.
How thick is your overlay? Granicrete can be 1/16" and typically troweled to finish less 3/16". The depth you see from photos and in person result from our special tapes that create the grout lines that make the system so authentic looking.
What tools do I use to create the stone and wood finishes? First, we do not use stamps nor offer stamped concrete to imprint finishes. Such are a waste of money and negate custom finishes. Our concrete resurfacing method for all our finishes are from using a trowel and/or a brush. To mix our 50-lb bag all you need is a 5-gallon pail, a mixing paddle, and hand-drill. The same mix of Granicrete Texture Blend can do all stone and wood finishes at the same time. So, if your floor has a couple different finishes, you can do them at the same time.
How much working time do I have with your overlay mix? Granicrete has one of the longest working times in the industry which can be as much as an hour. Our product engineering is designed to give you ample time to create authentic finishes of various stone and wood.
How do achieve such coloring authentic coloring? Well, we keep coloring simple. You dilute our concentrated colorants with water and spray them onto the Granicrete Texture surface. They are engineered to create the natural stone and wood coloration rather than painted decorative concrete finishes. Better yet, the colors work for you and you do not need to be artistic our jaw-dropping finishes. We have color recipes to get you started and you will immediately understand how our colorants are used. So our broad color selection become fun at your fingertips.
How good are your sealers? All our sealers are UV resistant and we have both low odor and low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) sealers to meet the toughest requirements in the world. Our easy-to-use sealer chart to help you narrow your sealer choice for interior, exterior, residential, and commercial application and do so in cure time limitations you have for your various projects. Our sealers also meet USDA compliance and NSF cert
How are Granicrete surfaces maintained? Using pH neutral cleaners enhance the life of sealers significantly. Resealing periods can be 2-5 years or more pending use and cleaning procedures implemented.
Granicrete's overlay systems are excellent for residential projects but they are also great for heavy traffic commercial projects too.
