Resurfacing Your Home’s Concrete

When it comes to their value and consumer appeal, the exterior of your home is just as important as its interior. To resurface the concrete on your driveway, sidewalk, front patio, back patio and swimming pool (if you have one) is a fast facelift for your yard. Plus, when you can use different colours and decorative designs to add more pizazz to your current concrete, surface concrete is more economical than replacing it completely;Learn more at Newark Decorative Concrete Contractors Association

Before resurfacing the concrete you will need to check if it can be resurfaced. Minimal cracks can be covered and fixed, but in most cases serious cracks or heaving concrete would have to be replaced. If your concrete is solid the next step is to clean the surface and patch the cracks. In preparation for the resurfacing process a specialist company would do this work for you.

Now you can start looking at the decorative possibilities. A stamped overlay will give you the appearance of natural stone , brick, or wood, but it will actually go over the existing concrete. This can be done in any interior or exterior room, and from a variety of colours and styles you can choose from.

Another choice is to paint the concrete; you can paint a stamped overlay, or you can leave the concrete already in place. Coloring concrete offers you a wide range of choices, from bold vibrant colours making a statement to soft tones that resemble nature.

Whatever method you select, it will rejuvenate your home and its curb appeal if your concrete is resurfaced.
