Are your concrete surfaces looking tired, dirty, and worn? Dingy concrete can really bring down the feel of your home’s interiors or exteriors but you don’t have to go to the hassle and expense of ripping it all up and relaying it. Concrete resurfacing will bring your concrete back to new in no time and it won’t cost the earth. Here are the reasons why concrete resurfacing can be so good.
Simply speaking, concrete resurfacing is the application of a thin cement based overlay or polymer modified overlay to the top of your existing concrete. The purpose of this coating is to hide your existing concrete and give it a brand new look and feel. It can be used to repair damage as well as hide it.
Concrete resurfacing is a great idea for several reasons. Firstly, it can be done inside or outside the home, meaning that all types of concrete can be easily rejuvenated. Because it is available in so many different colours, patterns, and textures, it can be used to create virtually a limitless range of designs, from traditional country looks through to ultra modern finishes, or finishes that you’d swear were natural stone. Just some of the looks that you can create include paved finishes, brick, sandstone, granite, or stamped concrete. You can combine different patterns or finishes to create borders that highlight the main area.
One of the biggest benefits of concrete resurfacing is its cost effectiveness. It is much cheaper than removing your old concrete and replacing it with new concrete or another type of flooring. Just think – you could create elegant sandstone finishes, beautiful paved looks, or cosy bricks, at a fraction of the cost of the real thing! It can also increase the value of your home, which is great if you are trying to jazz it up for sale without spending a lot of money. If only a small part of your concrete floor is damaged, you can choose to have only that part resurfaced, which means that you can save even more money.
Concrete resurfacing is often sealed in order to preserve the brightness and integrity of the colours used and the sealing also has the purpose of protecting the new coating from wear. You can even use coatings that have anti slip properties so that the concrete is safe to walk on, no matter how wet it might be.
