Is your driveway looking old and worn out? Are the pathways around the house showing their age with divots and scratch marks? Has there been an old oil stain on the floor of the garage for as long as you can remember? Concrete resurfacing is a fantastic and cost-effective way to spruce up your tired looking driveways and walkways. It is much faster than tearing up and re-laying new concrete, resurfacing is effectively adding an extra layer to the surface. Depending on the type you have added, you can increase the look, wear-resistance, and performance of your concrete.
What is available?
Concrete Resurfacing is available in many different colors, patterns, and textures; allowing you to completely personalize the look of your outdoor areas. It can be stamped to look like paved tiles, and textured and colored to look like brick, sandstone and even granite! This allows you the freedom to completely modify the look of your concreted areas. Stencils can be used to create personalized patterns and images, and colors mixed up to have the concrete look truly unique!
Why Resurface rather than Replace?
One of the most important questions involved in your decision to resurface your existing concrete rather than simply replace it; how much will it hurt my wallet? The cheapest option is to do it yourself, but if anything goes wrong those costs can skyrocket! Let Glendale Concrete Pros worry about making sure the job is done right the first time for your peace of mind. The size and time requirements of the job will influence the price, as will the amount of customization and detail that you desire in the finished product. Sadly any prep work that is required will also increase the price, but it is important to remember that for a full replacement, many of those same costs are already involved.
Will my Resurface last?
Concrete is an incredibly durable material that can take a very long time to wear down especially when done by our Glendale Concrete Pros. In high wear environments, a more durable type of surface may be required but typically you can expect your concrete to give you peace of mind and quiet enjoyment of the improvement for years to come.
Are there Restrictions?
So long as the concrete has not cracked completely through, Glendale Concrete Pros can fill in the gaps with a mix of cement, sand and polymer additives and then cover the surface of the concrete making the whole area look as good as new. Any coatings that have already been applied will first have to be removed as it may interact negatively with the newly applied surface. If there is any underlying structural damage that has been causing issues, such as tree roots or soil erosion then sadly more than resurfacing will be required. Depending on the current condition of the surface, we may need to grind it down a little to ensure that the new surface attaches properly to the old one.
