Living in Louisiana means a lot of outdoor activities: pool parties during long holiday weekends, cookouts with friends, and lots of neighborhood get togethers. Southern living also means that you as a homeowner need to keep your backyard area safe and attractive looking. Now you can do that with the designer concrete applications!

With an overlay system, you can utilize your existing concrete surface -- just have an experience concrete professional repair any cracks in it, then add a layer (or more) of a pre-mixed, concrete-based substance (this is the overlay system). Once the overlay mix is poured, decorative techniques can be added onto the top layer. With a concrete overlay system, you can achieve the look of brick or natural stone on your patio. And the best part of concrete as the material to build a patio is it cost much less than a more traditional paver patio. This is because the labor that is involved with paving can get quite pricey.
