Not sure I understand your post. If your existing driveway is concrete, why do you have a concrete overlay that isn't stamped? What is the purpose of your overlay? Was it just to change the color? Couldn't you have simply used a stain as opposed to an overlay? And why do you have to seal it?

The original painting was done about sixteen years ago and was flaking off, three years ago we had a fly by night local refinish and repaint the surface which also flaked off, plus being stained by our golf cart batteries overflow. Instead of attempting to resurrect the painted surface, we felt it would be wiser to start from scratch and have the paint completely removed and the surface ground down to uncontaminated concrete. Check the classifieds for a weed wacker (recent posting) and you will see the pattern we ended up with. So far, we are pleased with the results.

Thanks for your post.

Mulligan is correct, our deed restrictions state "poured concrete", the other projects may have been in other areas of the villages with different deed restrictions. Thank you Mulligan for keeping me honest......
