Concrete Driveway Overlay

by Steve Odom
(Houston Tx)

Q. I have concrete aggregate finish driveway that was done very poorly.
I am now wanting to do a spray texture with a stencil to make it look like stone but I am not sure what base overlay that I should use with a color for the grout lines.
Since the current concrete is uneven and the overlay will be different thicknesses. Will I have a problem with the overlay adhering to the aggregate finish?

A. Overlaying concrete successfully isn't as easy as it may seem. The success or failure of the overlay is mainly due to the preparation before laying the overlay material.

I would suggest contacting an Elite crete contractor in your area for some help and/or an estimate to do the work.
