Commercial Concrete Overlays and Underlays
Paradigm Concrete Finishes is a professional concrete overlay/underlay contractor with extensive experience in the flooring industry. What does that mean? We can apply a concrete overlay aka “microtopping” on top of concrete to make it look great without having to incur the cost or mess that comes with a full concrete removal. We’ve developed a reputation as a leading concrete overlay team in Sarasota and Bradenton, Florida, because of our commitment to quality and cost control.
What Is an underlayment
Underlayments are a thin coating designed to self level and smooth imperfections in existing concrete floors. Underlayments are put down as a flat base prior to installation of other floor coverings like carpet or vinyl floors.
Underlays repair cracked and divoted or uneven surfaces.
Underlays will self level when poured and smoothed throughout the application area. This makes the floor flush.
Underlayments create a seal which reduces moisture from penetrating the floor surface.

WHAT IS A CONCRETE OVERLAY?
Concrete overlays are a thin cement-based product designed to cover up an existing floor system to make a smooth and seamless surface that is aesthetically pleasing.
Overlays can be color dyed or stained based on your style preference.
The great thing about concrete overlays is that they can be polished, allowing you to choose the level of aggregate and shine you are looking for.
You have the ability to add an aggregate into the overlay. This means you can have a terrazzo style floor once polishing is complete. You have material choices like stone, mirror and glass to add to the overlay.
These are the metal borders that are sometimes seen in airports or other decorative commercial floors. They can be added directly into the border of the concrete.
SELF LEVELING OVERLAYS
Applied and smoothed over the entire flooring surface bringing the floor up to an flush consistent level.
APPLIED TO ANY HARD FlOOR SURFACE
Overlays can be applied over any hard surface including concrete, terrazzo, and tile.
FAST TURNAROUND TIME
No Need to demo and replace your floor, Cementitious overlays cure within 24 hours putting you back to work quickly without tear out.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FLOORS
The application of overlays directly onto a flooring system eliminates waste that would otherwise be ripped up and put in a trash dump.
MOLD & MILDEW RESISTANT
Overlays are antimicrobial in nature and provide an impenetrable surface that doesn’t allow for moisture seepage which is the cause of mildew and mold.
