Explore SUNDEK of Tidewater’s Expert Answers to Your Most Pressing Questions About Concrete Resurfacing and More
What is concrete resurfacing?
When concrete is resurfaced, a coating is applied to the top of the existing concrete surface. That coating is then customized with stamping, staining, and/or other techniques. Concrete resurfacing is a fantastic option for updating a space because you can get a brand new look without having to rip out existing concrete. You can save yourself the mess and the headache—it’s also less expensive.
Can I resurface concrete myself?
Although it’s possible to resurface concrete yourself, we highly recommend hiring an experienced installer to do it such as SUNDEK of Tidewater. We have years of experience with installing concrete coatings, so we’re familiar with common pitfalls to avoid and tips and tricks to make sure the surface turns out looking perfect. Temperatures and humidity levels can both affect the results—our experience with resurfacing in this area of the country means we’re well versed in the best weather conditions to do this type of work in.
How does concrete resurfacing work?
When concrete is going to be resurfaced, the existing concrete should be evaluated for damage (for example, cracking, chipping, spalling), and damage should be repaired. The surface then needs to be thoroughly prepared and primed for adhesion. A coating is then applied. After that, the coating can be customized with stamping, staining, and other effects to get the desired look.
What design options are available?
The variety of concrete resurfacing options available through SUNDEK means you can get the exact color, texture, pattern, and style you want for your outdoor space. This includes the ability to make concrete look like stone, tile or brick. Some of our most popular choices are textured spray coatings, stamped concrete overlays, and thin, smooth microtoppings.
If you have a new patio and an outdated walkway, we can design your walkway to match or coordinate with your patio. If you love the look of the neighbor's concrete driveway down the street, we can replicate it. Did you see a picture in a magazine of a pool deck you love that was created using knockdown texture? Show us, and we’ll figure out how to create that same look. The options are endless.
How much does concrete resurfacing cost?
The cost of concrete resurfacing varies depending on where you live. Your project’s cost will also depend on the condition of your existing surface. Contact your local SUNDEK of Tidewater contractor to get a quote today.
Does Concrete Resurfacing Last?
When done properly, resurfaced concrete will last a long time. With good surface preparation, proper concrete coating application, a protective sealer and routine maintenance, we’ve seen jobs that look just as good 10 and even 20+ years later. SUNDEK of Tidewater contractors are trained in proper mix ratios and installation procedures to ensure our coatings last.
Our Concrete Resurfacing Process
Here’s an overview of the installation process (details vary depending on which products are used):
1. Prepare & Repair
Etch, grind, or shot blast the concrete surface to make it porous. Fix cracks or other existing damage.
2. Clean & Prime
Clean with a pressure washer and let surface thoroughly dry. Apply primer if necessary.
3. Mix Product
Following instructions, mix the product to prepare it for application. Mix in color if necessary.
4. Apply Overlay
Depending on the desired look, apply the overlay by spraying, rolling, or troweling.
5. Add Patterns & Texture
This is completed using hand-trowels, rakes, stamps and other specialty tools.
6. Cure & Seal
After the overlay cures, add a sealer for additional protection. Customers often ask us if outdoor concrete needs to be sealed, and our answer is always yes. A sealer will preserve the look of your concrete surface for longer. It also enhances its stain resistance and makes it easier to maintain.
