Home and business owners often choose to repave the surface of their concrete instead of removing or patching it for a variety of reasons, chief among them being the low cost. The average residential driveway can be repaved for a couple thousand dollars or less, which is much cheaper than a comprehensive concrete removal. The work can be done on several different days if necessary, and you can even add colors or patterns if you want. As a way to cover small pits and shallow crevices, repaving is the way to go. The concrete grinder used for resurfacing is extremely strong and has a compressive strength of 4,500 PSI, which is actually stronger than the real concrete slab.
If applied correctly, the concrete coating can last between 8 and 15 years, protecting the longevity of the underlying tile. In addition, you can usually make a coated slab look the same as the original concrete if that's the look you want. The preparation stage is absolutely crucial when it comes to resurfacing. A uniform surface will ensure that the coating mixture spreads evenly throughout the concrete slab. Then, with a long-handled spatula, spread the material back and forth across the doorway, effectively rubbing the polisher into the concrete.
This will create a seal and leave an entirely new concrete driveway. If you are looking to enhance the aesthetic appeal and increase the value of your property or just looking to give it a “facelift”, resurfacing is a great option. You can even opt for a unique deck pattern if you are resurfacing your pool area. However, it's important to note that foreign materials can affect how the concrete facing material attaches to the existing surface underneath. In conclusion, resurfacing concrete is definitely worth it if there are no problems with the underlying base on which the rejuvenating agent is poured. It's much cheaper than a comprehensive concrete removal and can be done on several different days if necessary.
Plus, it's easy to have a smooth and even surface with self-leveling cement mixtures. Proper preparation of the concrete surface will ensure that the repaver is applied correctly and is durable and long-lasting.
