Concrete is known to be one of the most durable and strong materials used in the construction industry. However, with time, the effects of weather, and day-to-day use, concrete will exhibit damage and imperfections. Common concrete problems include cracks, dents, chips, and irregularities due to freeze/thaw cycles. In the past, damaged concrete was removed and replaced; however, instead of removal, it is now possible to resurface the concrete. If your concrete is essentially in good condition but has minor wear and tear, then it is suitable for concrete resurfacing services. One of the best parts of concrete resurfacing is that it is only a fraction of the price compared to removal & replacing the entire slab.
Concrete Resurfacing: How it Works
- Before a slab of concrete can be resurfaced, it is important that it is prepped correctly. There are chemical and mechanical ways to prep the concrete. This is a critical step as it cleans the substrate and opens up the porosity for proper adhesion.
- Depending on the desired look you are trying to achieve, there are many different applications that can be done. It can be as simple as a new broom finish or as decorative as stamped patterns and hand troweled textures.
- Color choices are practically endless. Once the desired texture is achieved, concrete stain is applied to create either a more uniform color or an antiqued stone look.
- Lastly, a concrete sealer is applied to protect and enhance the project.
