Most homes have a concrete driveway, patio, walkway or any type of concrete surface that needs to be taken care over time. Concrete is always the best choice for outdoors because of its long lasting effect, sturdyness and long lifespan. After a while, any concrete surface might experience so cracking or even weeds growing through the surface which might become problematic or even bothers you looking at it. This will cause major irritation and problems along the way if not taken care of asap. To fix this, a new concrete slab or concrete pour is not always necessary, instead we can offer you a concrete resurfacing. Concrete Resurfacing is very important for the lifespan and safety of the concrete surface in question. Concrete Resurfacing is the process of taking an existing slab of concrete that is damaged by weeds, cracking etc and cleaning, repairing and they overlaying it with a new concrete surface. Our concrete resurfacing process explained shortly:
Cleaning - We pressure wash the concrete to remove any grime, dirt or other materials from the concrete for a smooth surface.
Cracks - We start repairing the crack by applying primer, we the use a reinforcement material such as a fabric, we will then apply polymer over the concrete slab or surface so that the entire surface is smooth, sleek and have no cracks left. We fill in all the holes of the cracks in the concrete slab or surface by using and epoxy mortar.
Covering the surface - We start by covering the surface with an spay-on polymer concrete lubricant. After this step is applied, we will finish the surface off with a trowel.
Colouring and Sealing - In this step we aim to apply the colouring, if the client has requested it. We then also apply a seal coat that will protect the surface of any elements or outdoor hazards that may hard the surface over time.
Time - We then give the concrete surface a rest and time to dry out and usually have a waiting time of between 2-3 days depending on weather conditions.
