Resurfacing concrete is a technique used to fix cracked or discolored concrete slabs. Unfortunately, this is inevitable; however, resurfacing the concrete may make the area seem like new again. Additionally, there is a practice called decorative concrete resurfacing, which, like the former, restores the concrete's appearance but also gives it a new, more aesthetically pleasing one. This can involve any number of colors and patterns, some of which may be rather complex. Incredibly high aesthetic value may be achieved in some restoration efforts. The cost of concrete resurfacing will depend on the scope of the work you need done and the level of detail you need in the finished product. However, the price per square foot might vary widely from the low three dollars to the high seven dollars.
Concrete resurfacing begins with a thorough cleaning of the area to be repaired. Typically, a pressure washer is used for this purpose. After that, there are a few methods for fixing any fractures in the concrete. Crack repair material is used after the cracks have been primed. After that, a fabric reinforcement is added, and a base coat is painted on top. Once the polymer concrete has dried, it is crushed down until the surface is level and free of any cracks. Epoxy mortar will be used to plug any holes in the concrete once the fractures have been fixed. The concrete resurfacing may now begin after extensive repairs have been made.
After patching up any damage, the next step is to apply a prime coat and granule broadcast. The next step is to apply a texture coat. You must first combine the ingredients as directed on the packaging. After the mixture has been prepared, it will be sprayed using a specialized spray gun. When finished, a trowel should be used to smooth out the surface and guarantee uniformity. Start from the top and work your way down the space to accomplish this. The following step is to apply the color coat, which is where you'll add the paint of your desired hue. The process is completed by applying a sealant.
