When should you use concrete resurfacing?

Posted

The need to do a concrete resurfacing is brought about by many conditions that stress out concrete. Yes, even materials with the strength of stone are prone to stress. Fatigue due to age is obvious and you can tell once your concrete surface is not as resistant anymore.

Cracking is the easiest to spot among all conditions that lead to concrete resurfacing as it is the most visible. With spider like extensions or a crocodile skin appearance, cracks invite water, chemicals, plant and animal life that eventually make cracks bigger. Ever seen a concrete pavement from where shrubs seem to have sprouted? That is a crack that successfully harbored flora, which eventually grows whenever conditions are right.

Loss of aggregates is what happens to concrete roads, pavements and driveways that are subjected to constant traffic. Weight bearing load is not the only reason that results to loss of aggregates or the components that make up concrete. The usual culprit of sun, wind, rain and temperatures are there as well as human actions of cleaning. Imagine metal cooking vessels which are scratched and worn thin from years of using and subsequent scouring.

  • What materials are used for concrete resurfacing?

Materials used in concrete resurfacing are mainly products that give concrete a new look without touching the deeper structural support. These are polymer agents, specialized concrete stains and hardeners.

  • Who does concrete resurfacing?

Concrete resurfacing should be done by individuals with experience and expertise. A small concrete resurfacing project can be done the DIY way. However, this is quiet risky and usually produces varied success rates. Concrete resurfacing should be left to the experts as the job is labor intensive and the outcome is important. The way concrete looks, feels and withstands corrosive agents are determined by the way it was applied, the quality or raw materials and aggregates and the outcome is rather long lasting, so think twice before attempting to do it yourself or hire an inferior concrete resurfacing contractor.
