Old concrete cracks may be unsightly, but we can turn it around with our overlay!
Cracks in concrete can be a common occurrence.
Cracking can be the result of one or a combination of factors such as drying shrinkage, thermal contraction, restraint (external or internal) to shortening, subgrade settlement, and applied loads. Cracks can be unsightly but don’t necessarily mean that a product has failed.
We like to incorporate cracks into a design to make your driveway, pool deck, porch, or patio look brand new!

Here’s a nice size concrete job we did in Anderson, South Carolina, which is just southwest of Greenville. It highlights our attention to detail that we place on our resurfacing jobs. As you can see from our sketch the customer approved, we began to draw a design that opened up the space outside within the enclosure and along the side of the house to create an oasis.
In order to do this we created a leveled design that would require forming two levels of retaining walls made out of concrete. We also wanted to connect the walkway along the side of the house with the back enclosure to have a continuous design for people to feel as they entered. We used a slate design in order to create the retaining walls.
Along with this we built a wall fence with decorative concrete wall pillars. As you can see Jose in the picture hand chiseled the blocks on the pillars symmetrically as if there were actual blocks used to make the pillar. “Attention to detail” is a phrase we take very seriously at Unique Concrete Design LLP. With the walkway and the slate pattern overlay around the pool deck we used gray and tan colors along the wall also to tie everything in. The texture along this surface was semi ruff in order to prevent major slips when people walk around this swimming pool, but to also add dimension for the color.
We poured a good amount of flat concrete and then went back over much of it to add the texture and overlay patterns that we are known for instead of doing stamped concrete which many other companies choose to
do. We also included a coat of sealer in order to hold in the color and texture of the concrete.
This beautiful job took place out in Anderson, South Carolina where we poured a free format patio with a bench to connect the back porch with the existing pool. Prior to our arrival the customer had a nice yard with a pool, but any time after it rained this nice grassy yard wasn't ideal for walking across to the pool for friends or family.
With their idea and our design we were able to continue the existing stone pattern of the home and create a patio that looks as if it came with the purchase of the home. Within this patio bench we added soft lighting to provide a great environment for night fall events. We also did the stone work on the bench that extends out to the pool, which follows the stone pattern that came on the rest of the house. On this same bench we included cool deck stones to cover on the top of the bench so that during the summertime anyone can sit without the fear of being burned. This cool deck material is one of our signature details you’ll get when we design a decorative concrete surface for you.
