Concrete Resurfacing

Concrete can be very expensive. Because of the cost of pouring new concrete, many homeowners find that concrete resurfacing is an inexpensive alternative that allows them to enjoy the same benefits of having new concrete for less than the cost of new concrete. Since concrete resurfacing is cost effective and provides an excellent result, homeowners as well as city management professionals are choosing to go with resurfacing rather than laying new concrete. For homeowners who are looking for the perfect do it yourself project, many find that resurfacing is a task that they can handle easily and efficiently.

When concrete becomes flaky, scaled, cracked, or in otherwise need of repair, resurfacing is often the best choice of repair. It is also a good idea to resurface your concrete as soon as you notice that it is becoming weakened or damaged, rather than putting the project off for a later date. If you leave concrete problems for very long, you'll find that the damage will become too severe to repair on your own. Taking care of minor problems as they arise is the best way to prevent future trouble later, and one of the best ways to make those repairs is through concrete resurfacing.

 

You can purchase mixes that are already pre-packaged for your resurfacing repairs, or you can create your own. The basic ingredients needed for repairs are Portland cement, aggregates, sand, and water. However, you'll find that you can purchase the mix very inexpensively. Before you begin to resurface the concrete you will need to identify the source of the problem. If you are experiencing a lot of cracking in your concrete, the problem may be that the concrete was never sealed or is being exposed to freezing temperatures. Resurfacing is the best and most effective method for repairing weakened concrete. If the cracks are too severe, it may be necessary for the slab to be replaced. If the concrete slab is on a poor sub grade the cracks will reappear.

 

If you are simply tired or bored of your concrete you may want to consider resurfacing with an acid stain or a dye. This type of resurfacing is not used for structural defects with your concrete, but rather to beautify your structures. From garage floors, patios and pool decks, to interior structures concrete resurfacing can create a wide variety of looks, feels, and textures that resemble everything from wood and stucco to granite and marble. For those who truly want the look of a new floor or to add sparkle and life to their concrete surfaces, resurfacing with dye or acid stain is an excellent option.

 

Many people are thrilled to restore their concrete to its original condition, however many are still unaware of the amazing potential they can achieve with acid staining, dyes, stamping, and stenciling. The results are astounding and are awe inspiring, as many people simply do not realize that concrete has the potential to look so beautiful. After resurfacing, your choice of sealant will also determine the amount of shine that your finished project has. You can choose to seal your concrete with a hard protective finish, or even go for a glossy appearance that looks wet to the touch. Whether repairing damaged concrete or looking for a new way to revitalize an old look, you'll find that concrete resurfacing will meet all of your expectations.
