How Can We Help You?
Concrete resurfacing can update your concrete without the need for complete replacement. The issue with total concrete replacement is that it is expensive. The concrete may not need a replacement; it could just need a bit of repair, which will save you a great deal of money in the long run. If you are not sure if you need to replace the concrete or have it repaired with any of the methods we use for concrete resurfacing, contact us to find out more.
We can take care of the repair of your concrete no matter what the context. It could be a concrete patio, a driveway, pool decks, or the floors inside of your home. A concrete coating is applied right over the existing concrete surface.
You Can Save a Great Deal of Money
When you look at your options, concrete resurfacing is a better option because it costs much less money than complete concrete replacement. If your concrete is cracked or chipped, it will start to look bad. Over time you might even become embarrassed about the appearance of your concrete. We can change the concrete and how it looks, renewing it, and refreshing it. You may not even recognize your old concrete after we have completed concrete resurfacing. Aged concrete will typically crack and chip over time. When the concrete is repaired through concrete resurfacing, all of the cracks and chips are restored, and then a new coating is applied over the existing concrete.
If you have some concrete that needs repair, Driveway Repair Orlando can take care of it for you. Our experienced professionals use a wide range of techniques to apply many different products.
Is Your Concrete in Need of Repair?
You may have considered replacing your concrete but then decided not to because it is just too expensive. We can repair many different surfaces that are made from concrete. This includes:
- Concrete stairs and ramps;
- Concrete pathways
- Concrete pads
- Concrete patios
- Concrete driveways
- Concrete decks
Updating the look of your concrete does not require that you replace all of your concrete. You can renew your concrete with concrete resurfacing. You have all of the opportunity to have input on all of your concrete projects when you work with us. We want you to be delighted with the result when we complete the work.
Replace the Concrete or Apply Concrete Resurfacing?
It has been a long-standing belief that old concrete cannot be repaired, and once it starts to become old and no longer looks promising, it must be removed and replaced. This is an expensive process because you have to break up and remove all of the concrete and then pay to dispose of it. Once you take care of that, you then need to replace all of the concrete by having new concrete poured, and this will probably cost you much more than you originally paid when you had the concrete installed previously.
Having your concrete replaced is expensive, but you can save so much money and time if you decide to repair it with concrete resurfacing. You will also eliminate the issue of having to dispose of the old concrete product, and you will preserve resources too, which is a great way to be environmentally friendly. The truth is that old concrete is not garbage; it can be revived with some of your choice of available products on the market. New products are continuously being developed, and we would be pleased to discuss your many options with you.
What are the Best Applications for Concrete Resurfacing?
Driveway Repair Orlando has done so many great projects which involve concrete resurfacing. We have used many different products to:
- repair cracks
- take care of any discoloration
- hide imperfections in the surface of the concrete
- transform outdated concrete surfaces to an entirely new look
- cover concrete that looks unsightly
Your concrete can be covered entirely with an overlay to upgrade it. If the concrete is in good condition but needs a touchup, it can be renewed with other methods.
Which Surfaces are Suitable for Concrete Resurfacing?
When you look at the surface that needs to be repaired, you want to ensure that the existing concrete is solid. We can inspect your concrete to ensure that it is a project that will stand up to concrete resurfacing. If the concrete is heaving or has large cracks or extensive damage from freezing and thawing, then completing the task of resurfacing will not deal with the existing issues.
Is Concrete Resurfacing Durable?
When you use a high-quality product for concrete resurfacing and have it installed by professionals, it will last for a minimum of ten years. Sometimes these products stay as long as twenty-five years. One thing is for sure, the products that you can purchase from home improvement stores do not last as long as the professional-grade products.
You can improve and increase the durability of your product when you clean and maintain it. If the concrete is sealed correctly and then resealed as needed, it will last for a lot longer than if you do not care for it.
We Prepare Your Concrete for Resurfacing
One of the most critical factors in concrete resurfacing or overlay is the proper preparation of the underlying concrete. The overlay is designed to adhere to the concrete that is already in place. The secret to a long-lasting application is to ensure that the base is clean and solid to make a reliable connection. We never skimp on preparation when we take on a job, and we know that if the trial is not completed correctly, this will lead to the failure of the end product.
On every project, we will:
- Ensure that the concrete is cleaned, removing any substances that might interfere with the product’s bonding that we will apply on the surface. We will remove any existing coatings, sealants, or paints that have been previously used.
- We will remove and replace any concrete that is not solid, and that includes scaling and delamination.
- If we find any active cracks, we will fill those in not to mirror the surface. Cracks that are wider than a credit card will need to be repaired properly, and we will take care of that for you.
- We will prepare the surface of the concrete by roughening it so that the overlay will adhere to the surface of the concrete and create a lasting bond.
Driveway Repair Orlando is a company that understands what you need. We will come to your residence or business and assess the job that needs to be done. Once we have a game plan, we will examine the concrete that you want to repair. We will discuss your options for concrete resurfacing and then get your input as to the design. We will provide you with an estimate of the overall cost of the job. We may use a shot blaster or a grinder to prepare the surface by making it rough to accept the concrete resurfacing product that we will use.
As concrete professionals, we will ensure that the work is done carefully and correctly to ensure that the product that you end up with will last for years into the future. If you are unsatisfied or unhappy with your current concrete product, please get in touch with us; we will be happy to come to your home and take a look at the work that needs to be done.
