What Is Concrete Resurfacing?

Originally used mostly for commercial purposes and foundations for homes, the durability and versatility of concrete soon brought it to the forefront of building design.

Properly laid and maintained concrete will last for many years. Over time, however, the abuses of neglect or severe weather conditions may have your concrete looking dull and drab, and small cracks or holes may appear. Not to worry. The experts such as those at Concrete Designs can soon have your concrete looking like new using the procedure known as concrete resurfacing.

What, you may ask, is concrete resurfacing? Simply put, resurfacing is exactly what it sounds like – instead of the expensive and time-consuming process of tearing out and replacing the existing concrete, a thin coating of specially formulated concrete-like product is applied directly to the sanded and prepared concrete surface already in place, bonding to the original concrete and greatly enhancing the appearance back to a freshly poured look. This material is waterproof and resistant to oil, algae growth, and other influences that cause dulling and damaging of the surface. The resurfacing material formula is also created especially for the weather conditions in your specific area, effectively doing away with yet another ‘concrete killer’. Resurfacing your concrete is a far less expensive option and is all that is needed in the majority of cases to restore the original beauty of patios, driveways, sidewalks, or anywhere concrete is used. Designs and colors as well as slip proof textures can be incorporated into the resurfacing process to achieve whatever finished look you desire.

The knowledge and experience of the personnel at Concrete Designs will save you both time and money by inspecting your concrete and fully explaining the resurfacing process. Unless your existing concrete is damaged beyond repair or has issues caused from being improperly laid, resurfacing is faster, easier, and actually strengthens the concrete by filling in and covering small cracks and other imperfections. For a unique, long lasting finish with very little in the way of maintenance required, resurfacing should be at the top of the list when it comes to your concrete improvements.
