Concrete is a sturdy and long-lasting material, but it is not indestructible. Over time, concrete can develop cracks, become discolored, or spall. Luckily, concrete restoration is a cost-effective method of repairing and rejuvenating your concrete surfaces.
At Pro Edge Concrete, we specialize in concrete restoration, and we've compiled essential information you need to know.
What is Concrete Restoration?
Concrete restoration refers to the process of repairing and restoring concrete surfaces to their original condition. This can involve repairing cracks, filling in spalls, resurfacing the concrete, and applying coatings or sealers to protect it.
What are the Benefits of Concrete Restoration?
Concrete restoration has numerous benefits, including cost-effectiveness, increased durability, improved appearance, and increased safety. Restoring your concrete surfaces is often much cheaper than replacing them, and the restored surfaces are more durable and resistant to wear and tear. Additionally, restoring your concrete surfaces can improve their appearance and make them look like new, and repairing any cracks or uneven surfaces can increase safety by eliminating tripping hazards.
What are Some Common Concrete Restoration Techniques?
At Pro Edge Concrete, we utilize a variety of techniques to restore concrete surfaces, including crack repair using epoxy injections, spall repair using polymer-modified cementitious overlays, resurfacing with materials like micro-toppings, stamped overlays, and self-leveling overlays, and the application of coatings and sealers to protect the restored concrete surface and improve its appearance.
How Long Does Concrete Restoration Take?
The time required to restore your concrete surfaces depends on the extent of the damage and the restoration techniques used. Minor repairs can usually be completed in a few hours, while more extensive restorations can take several days.
How Long Will Restored Concrete Surfaces Last?
The lifespan of restored concrete surfaces is determined by several factors, including the quality of the restoration work and the level of maintenance. With proper care and maintenance, restored concrete surfaces can last for many years.
How Do I Maintain My Restored Concrete Surfaces?
To maintain your restored concrete surfaces, we recommend regular cleaning by sweeping or pressure washing to remove dirt and debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the surface and apply sealers every few years to protect it from water and stains.
