Concrete floors can crack, chip and flake as they age. Stains mar the appearance of the floor, and the original slip-resistant surface may become less effective as the material deteriorates due to continuous use. These defects detract from the appearance of the floor and increase the potential for serious injuries.
It is more cost-effective to restore the surface than to incur the expensive of replacing the entire floor. There are several options available for transforming older concrete into a new decorative and colorful surface. The restoration project will enhance the beauty of an existing interior or exterior concrete surface and improve the safety conditions.
A concrete floor that is visually unappealing but is generally in good condition can receive a facelift by being cleaned and then receiving a decorative surface coloration treatment. A floor that has chips and cracks can be resurfaced using overlays and coatings. These veneers, applied to the current substrate, are available in a wide variety of styles, designs, colors and textures. This includes resilient slip-resistant surfaces and a sealer that makes it easier to clean and maintain the new floor. It may be possible to restore and resurface a floor that already has a decorative coating to create a fresh look. The result is a new surface that is functional and visually appealing.
The process is less disruptive and can be accomplished in less time than it would take to remove the old concrete and pour a new floor. In addition to saving time, money and resources, resurfacing is an environmentally friendly option that eliminates the need to dispose of old concrete. The new concrete surface will also add value to your property.
