My First Subject is Overlays, the what and why of it all.
Do I need a concrete Modified overlay before my concrete staining project?
on new concrete we can clean and stain and it will naturally hue in and out of colors in a marbling fashion.
On most remodel projects I personally reccomend an overlay(unluss you truely have a very rustic personality,even in your living room)
the reason is ,
if it were carpet there is paint and tack strips all around the room , most paints can be dealt with but tack strip marks will always be seen or the concrete stain will always take differently where the tack strips were filled
If it were tile it will ghost pattern where all the tiles used to be and will not look right .
Unless your dealing with extremely clean concrete,You should choose an overlay.
I have a promo for an overlay, stain and Industrial sealer for 5 per sf out the door.
