Alright, so with winter finally in the rearview mirror, you’ve finally stepped out of the house and taken an honest assessment of your home’s exterior. Maybe some repainting here, some planting there… But, how about your concrete surfaces? Are they still intact, or are they crumbling? Still looking as good as new, or could they use some resurfacing? While it’s easy to take your concrete surfaces for granted (after all, it’s concrete, right?), it’s definitely worth looking into. Because concrete tends to get overlooked, maybe this is the year you decide that you’d like to look into renovating your concrete surfaces in order to improve their performance and appearance.
So what now?
Trust a Licensed Professional
Point blank, resurfacing concrete isn’t something for the weekend warrior. Due to
its nature and permanence, concrete is serious business and not only requires the experience that can only come from working with it over a period of time, but it also requires highly specialized tools (and the experience necessary to work them). For example, something as slight as a 1° slope (slight enough that you can’t detect it without a level) on a concrete surface can cause rainwater to run off and puddle improperly, which can harm not only the concrete itself, but a home’s foundation, as well.
How to Choose a Concrete Contractor
As is the case when shopping for any contractor for the home, ask around for recommendations and suggestions. Ask your friends and neighbors for references. Perhaps they or someone they know has used a reputable contractor recently. Another great resource when shopping for contractors is the Internet. There’s no shortage of sites available with which to find reviews on home improvement professionals. HomeAdvisoris great place to start. Finally, check with the Better Business Bureau to read additional business reviews and the complaints registered against them.
