Don’t Replace, Resurface!
We’re talking about your cement driveway here, and a reputable resurfacing company can do that job and more. You’ll be amazed just what they can do to a driveway that’s got cracks, holes, fissures, and don’t stop there. Today’s concrete is not the same as your dad’s. Those in the know will make borders for you, then turn around and give that concrete slab texture, coloring, and many other improvements.
A concrete resurfacing company can do the basic repairs and it’s an easier, cheaper way to fix your deteriorating driveway, walkway, or any other slab. First they fill the cracks and holes with a repair material. Then they apply a full coat of polymer concrete resurfacing material to the entire surface. When they’re finished you have a brand new concrete surface that will last for several years.
They can’t fix everything wrong with your driveways. Things like buckling, soil issues or other major problems. When your problems are huge, the only way to correct them is by tearing the old surface out and starting over.
However, let’s get back to some of the enhanced things they can do with concrete, whether on the interior or exterior of your home. Some of those things seem like a miracle as they take that drab gray slab of concrete and turn it into a thing of beauty.
The types of jobs they perform are endless and when you think that concrete refacing is only for repairs to your drive or patio slab, think again. Advance technology have brought the techniques back from the future and you end up with textured surfaces that mimic pavers, stones, and tiles by stenciling, acid staining and other basic colorings.
The ambitious homeowner can find the resurfacing products, but this project should be left to the experts because it is a major undertaking, and not one that you’ll have to repeat often. So if it’s done right the first time, you won’t have to do it again for several years.
Go online to find concrete resurfacing companies; the list may surprise you because this is a relative new type of business. Yes, concrete companies have been around for years and years, but to find a company that is familiar with the full range of decorative work takes specificity. The company you want will be able to provide you with a full range of ideas.
Most people never suspected all that they do. You’ll be the talk of your neighborhood and your new curb appeal is unsurpassed.
