First it’s important to be aware that not all existing concrete can be resurfaced. The underlying base for the overlay must be in decent shape. If there are severe cracks or spalling due to damage from deicing salts and freeze-thaw cycles, or the concrete was poured on unstable base, resurfacing will not solve your problems. This is when total replacement of your concrete will be your best option. An overlay on unsuitable surface will be a temporary patch. In other words a waste of your money. Applying an overlay to a concrete surface that is falling apart would be like painting over rust or dirt. Yes it would look good for a while but eventually this would fail.

A stamped overlay is great option for a front porch that is in decent shape and would be considered when adding a stamped concrete walkway and instead of removing and replacing the front porch or patio a colored stamp-able overlay can be applied to blend with your new walkway. This will save the cost of removal of the old concrete and will hold up well when the surface is suitable.
Concrete Overlay manufacturers use different types of polymer resins, often blending them to produce proprietary products with distinct physical attributes. Many of today’s decorative concrete overlays use acrylics or acrylic blends because these resins provide excellent bond strength and UV resistance.
