Resurfaced concrete floors offer modern looking design, ease of maintenance and great value when compared to other types of flooring.

Duraamen’s decorative concrete resurfacing products are engineered to renew the surface of existing concrete without the cost and hassle of ripping it out and replacing it. Decorative concrete overlays (also known as concrete skim coats or microtoppings) give new life to old and worn existing concrete surfaces.

Even new concrete has imperfections, whether it is cracked, blemished or discolored. Repairing the concrete is one option, though the repairs themselves leave noticeable imperfections. Resurfaced concrete provides a flaw-free surface that provides almost endless options in terms of colors and design.

Skraffino concrete overlay/micro topping

So you’ve decided to install a decorative concrete floor. Skraffino concrete overlays are the easy-to-install and cost effective solution you’ve been looking for. We engineered our Skraffino Concrete Skim Coat to transform damaged, structurally sound concrete into a fresh canvas for whatever decorative concrete flooring you desire at a fraction of the cost of replacement.

Though resurfaced concrete products like cement-based overlays/micro toppings have been around for many years, Skraffino by Duraamen is a blend of advanced polymers, cement and other additives that vastly improve performance. These polymers were engineered to provide excellent adhesion to various substrates like VCT, gypsum, ceramic tiles, etc., with minimal amount of surface preparation along with excellent wear resistance and super-compatibility with integral coloring, as well as water and acid based stains.

Skraffino can be used indoors and out and can be applied extremely thin, as little as 1/16” (the thickness of a credit card). Popular uses for Skraffino include pool decks, patios, driveways and decorative interior applications for residential, commercial properties and anywhere that resurfaced concrete is an option.

Each grade can be obtained in either white or gray. Not only can Skraffino be used over horizontal surfaces, it can also be used on vertical surfaces for textured walls, stairs, corridors and stairways. Skraffino is not only versatile, it is one of the most cost-effective and easiest to use concrete resurfacing solutions on the market. One of the greatest advantage of Skraffino concrete overlay is its ability to convert a gypsum based substrates into beautiful resurfaced concrete flooring.
