If you’re looking to breathe new life into dull, damaged concrete floors, microtoppings offer a cost-effective solution packed with style and performance. This innovative resurfacing system can transform virtually any indoor or outdoor slab into a sleek, modern surface that elevates any space.

What Are Concrete Microtoppings?

A microtopping is an ultra-thin cementitious topping that’s bonded onto existing concrete with a polymer-modified slurry coat. Despite being just a few millimeters thick, these durable resurfacers completely conceal underlying flaws like cracks, stains, and discoloration.

Available in nearly any color imaginable, microtoppings also offer endless decorative possibilities beyond simple solid hues. Skilled installers can incorporate custom scoring patterns, graphics, logos, multiple hues, and even glow-in-the-dark elements for unique, eye-catching visuals underfoot.

Top Reasons to Use Microtoppings

Compared to replacing concrete or installing traditional flooring, there are many compelling advantages to choosing concrete microtopping systems:

Cost Savings

Resurfacing is far cheaper than demolishing old concrete and pouring new. Concrete Microtoppings provide a budget-friendly yet high-end finished look.

Seamless Application

Microtoppings can be installed over virtually any structurally-sound interior or exterior slab with minimal demolition or downtime required. 

Curb Appeal

From rustic wood or tile looks to sleek modern designs, decorative microtopping instantly elevates the aesthetic of any space.

Exceptional Durability

Unlike paint or thin coatings, high-quality microtoppings offer outstanding abrasion, impact, and stain resistance.

Moisture Tolerance

Their breathable composition gives microtoppings resistance to moisture vapor issues that can deteriorate other toppings or coatings.  

Low Maintenance

Once sealed, microtopping floors are quite easy to maintain with routine cleaning. No waxing, polishing, or re-coating is needed.

Sustainable Solution

Concrete microtoppings are eco-friendly and made from renewable materials while extending the lifespan of existing concrete.

Versatility Galore

From commercial and retail to residential dwellings and more, microtoppings bring signature style anywhere they’re applied.
