Gone are the days when concrete was just a base material for various structures. From base, it has now reached a superior level, thanks to various decorative concrete options available today. Rather than being just a medium that gives everything its basic foundation, concrete can already be used as an enhancement. How? Through resurfacing and refinishing.
Resurfacing is the process of changing the top layer and replacing it with a newer and better material. This is a great repair option for concrete surfaces that have minor cracks, holes, or any sign of spalling or scaling. The overlay or coating covers up the surface, filling in the gaps, and protecting the slab underneath. Popular resurfacing options include Stamped concrete overlay, Spray knockdown texture, Epoxy flooring, and Polyurea polyaspartic coating.
Contrary to resurfacing, this is meant to only change the appearance or finish, keeping the top layer intact. If there is any damage on the surface, it is first repaired before refinishing is performed. A concrete refinishing company like Sundek of PA uses methods such as Stained concrete, Concrete sealing, and Polished concrete.
Top Benefits of Decorative Concrete Refinishing and Resurfacing
Concrete is the staple material for almost any construction or remodeling project. With decorative concrete, it has become even more significant in both the residential and commercial industry. What else makes resurfacing and refinishing huge hits?
- Cost – Compared to topping off concrete slabs with tile, stone, or carpets, installing an overlay or coating is a more affordable option. The same goes as compared to removing the concrete slabs and replacing it with a new pour.
- Design – The selection of pattern and color is almost limitless. You can mix and match different design options to acquire the exact look you want without using high-end materials.
- Maintenance – As long as properly installed and sealed, a refinishing or resurfaced driveway, pool deck, patio or other surface is very easy to clean and maintain. Occasional sweeping and dry mopping are good enough. It does not require any special cleaning product, but if you want to use one, consult a pro to make sure it is safe to use on the overlay or coating.
