One of the most useful services we provide requires comparatively little time to complete, yet it often produces remarkable changes in the appearance of residential properties. Consider requesting concrete resurfacing services this year!
About Concrete Resurfacing
During concrete resurfacing, we apply a thin layer of fresh resurfacing concrete evenly over an older existing concrete structure. This technique enables us to change the appearance of sidewalks, driveways, retaining walls, steps, porches, patios, poolsides, garage floors, and other surfaces. If you own a vintage home and you’d like to give the grounds a “facelift” without undertaking extensive new construction, concrete resurfacing might offer the most attractive alternative.
Concrete resurfacing supplies a great way to cover faint cracks and nicks cosmetically in concrete surfaces without altering the character of a property improvement. (These defects require patching before adding a concrete overlay, of course.) It also won’t correct serious problems, such as a deep crack in a driveway or rusting rebar in a concrete step. However, when a surface requires superficial enhancements, resurfacing often supplies an excellent treatment.
Upgrade The Appearance of Existing Concrete Improvements
In some cases, concrete resurfacing permits a homeowner to implement some desired changes. In many cases, customers simply requests concrete resurfacing in order to obtain a new, uniformly concrete exterior. If a portion of a paved driveway has darkened after heavy weathering, resurfacing may offer a useful solution. This technique helps aging properties appear revitalized and refreshed.
Of course, in some ways the new layer of concrete resembles an untouched artist’s canvas. An experienced concrete expert can create attractive new textures on this surface, or add decorative concrete features. If you’ve always desired a brick-like or stone-like exterior appearance for an existing gray concrete walkway or patio, you might consider asking We Do Concrete Cheap to resurface the entire structure for you and provide concrete stamping services, as well. You’ll have an opportunity to significantly modify the appearance of your home, while retaining the convenience of the existing concrete improvement.
Not a DIY Project
Resurfacing does not typically involve pouring as much concrete as some other new projects require. However, we don’t recommend undertaking resurfacing on a do-it-yourself basis under any circumstances. Most homeowners quickly discover obtaining even, uniform resurfacing results requires both training and experience.
If the concrete mix does not cover the surface evenly (or if concrete does not remain within desired locations) the results often prove disastrous. A poorly resurfaced section of concrete will look unsightly. It requires extensive effort to repair. For this reason, we recommend using us as your contractor right from the outset if you decide to implement concrete resurfacing.
A Temperature-Dependent Process
One important consideration during concrete resurfacing concerns the temperature. This process can’t occur during cold weather. The resurfacing concrete requires specific conditions in order to bond to the surface of existing concrete improvements and cure.
For this reason, it often helps homeowners to contact We Do Concrete Cheap about proposed concrete resurfacing improvements as early in the year as possible. We’ll help you explore available design options. You’ll have an opportunity to plan the project so that it can proceed seamlessly when warmer temperatures arrive. We think the appearance of your newly refurbished property will delight you!
