Concrete resurfacing refers to a technique contractors employ to make old and drab concrete look refreshingly new. If you live in McKinney and you are looking for concrete resurfacing, the first thing that you will need to do is to choose the best resurfacing system for you. This often involves weighing aesthetic value against performance attributes. The following are the questions that will guide you in finding a system that strikes a perfect balance for the project at hand.
What is the current condition of your surface?
Does your concrete have lots of gouges or cracks? Is your surface not in level? In case that is so, select a higher-build material, for instance stampable or a self-leveling overlay that is capable of being applied at ¼ inch thickness or greater. Unless the imperfections of the surface are expertly filled or patched, they are likely to telegraph through thinner overlays, like skim or microtopping coat.
What are the conditions that your overlay will be exposed to?
Make sure that the overlay or topping system is sufficiently tough to withstand the conditions that it will be exposed to. Will it be exposed to freezing and thawing or weather extremes? While most systems can deal with wear, dirt and chemical attack well especially if installed properly and sealed, some systems tend to be better suited to deal with harsher exposure than others. In most cases, a material that contains aggregates or a higher-build material will hold up much better in harsher environments.
What is the cost of installation?
Expect the total overlay installation cost to be higher when using stamping mats, stencils or sawcutting or decorative engraving to pattern your surface. Also, employing more than a single coloring method (for instance integral color mixed with broadcast pigments with dyes or stains) will also increase the final cost.
What is the level of maintenance required?
Generally, a decorative overlay is often coated with compatible sealer to protect it from stains, dirt, water penetration and grease. Also, sealed surfaces tend to be a lot easier to clean. Such floors typically need just routine sweeping to get rid of abrasive particles. Occasional mopping using a mild detergent may also be required. For cleaning exterior slabs, you may need occasional pressure washing.
