Watch the following video to learn everything you need to know. It's also important to note that external elements such as rain, temperature, and humidity can affect the appearance and durability of the restored concrete surface. To ensure the best results, protect the repaved area from rain for at least 8 hours after application. High-quality, well-formulated, and correctly applied repavers can extend the life of concrete for years.
While it's possible to re-pave your concrete driveway yourself, it's not a simple DIY project. Use a concrete driveway patching compound to fill in any areas with damage or crumbling, then wait for the recommended cure time before applying and repaving products. Coating is another great option for restoring the durability and appearance of dilapidated concrete. This process involves applying a thin layer of premixed, polymer-modified fluid mortar onto an existing surface.
Resurfacing is also less labor-intensive and less damaging than replacing concrete. To resurface your driveway, pour strips of the rejuvenating compound into the area at a distance of about 1 foot, then pass the material over the concrete with a long-handled spatula. Resurfacing can produce a high volume of cost-effective concrete restoration work for contractors. While proper surface preparation and application are key to successful concrete restoration, resurfacing provides contractors with several distinct advantages.
Fortunately, new state-of-the-art polymer resin technology found in next-generation concrete grinders has set improved standards for union, workability and working time. If you want to re-pave your concrete driveway, many consider it the “midpoint of caring for your driveway”.
