If you’re a business owner, there’s no doubt that you’d probably agree that you’re a different breed; perhaps cut from a different cloth, some might say. You’re always looking to improve your business in some form or fashion, while also being mindful of your bottom line. While it’s a fine line to walk, at the end of the day, if it doesn’t make cents, it doesn’t make sense, right? But at the same time, savvy business owners – especially those with a storefront – are also familiar with what looks professional and appeals to their customers and clients.

As the warmer, milder temps of spring and summer begin to blow into Georgia, accompanied by the bright, sunny days that seem to call every Georgian outside this time of year, many homeowners have begun their annual outdoor rituals and spring/summer activities around the house. In addition to the yardwork required in the lawn and garden, there are the duties and tasks of getting the outdoor areas ready for gatherings such as cookouts, parties, and laid-back evening hang time with friends and family. 

One such item/area that might often get looked over when it comes time to spruce things

As spring has officially sprung, it’s now the time to kick off the annual ritual of spring cleaning around the house. Just as important as the interior of the house, however, is the exterior of the house. Especially when you consider how the outside usually gets neglected in the winter months. Now that it’s time to dust the pollen off the patio, fire up the grill, and start inviting folks over, it’s important to get your outdoor areas looking their very best. 

A great place to start is the literal foundation for all the festivities - the concrete patio! After

Interior and exterior concrete is an often forgotten but crucial component of commercial buildings. Damaged concrete not only presents safety hazards but also sends the wrong message to employees and visitors. Upkeep is necessary in any commercial area but concrete flooring doesn’t always need to be replaced when it shows signs of deterioration. Concrete resurfacing is the more affordable option for providing cleanliness, durability, and customization to your interior and exterior commercial floors.

What Causes Commercial Concrete Damage?

Concrete flooring can be damaged by the daily wear, tear, and vibrations of heavy machinery and equipment, but they can also degrade

All areas of your home deserve to have great flooring! Consider adding durable, attractive, and affordable decorative concrete to your home’s garage and basement. Lasting for decades, requiring little maintenance, and offering unlimited creative options, concrete can be designed for any budget. It is also free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pet friendly, and can be heated with a radiant system. 

Common Concrete Floor Problems in Basements and Garages

High levels of moisture and humidity can cause several issues with concrete in basements and garages, including:

  • Cracks: Impacts, heavy foot traffic, moisture, and humidity can weaken a concrete slab,

As a porous material, concrete absorbs water during freeze-thaw cycles. The top layer begins to break off (scaling) and small cracks or holes will quickly become larger problems. This cycle, general wear and tear, and the use of chemical de-icing agents can combine to take a toll on the appearance of your concrete walkways. Don’t dismiss this damaged concrete as merely a cosmetic nuisance! This deterioration can quickly become a costly issue as well as a safety hazard. You should prioritize resurfacing your walkways before winter. Not only can an uneven walkway easily lead to trips and

Is Your Concrete Driveway in Need of Some TLC?

Don’t Repair or Patch…Resurface!

Your driveway is a vital part of your home’s curb appeal. Cracks, pits, weeds, and chipped edges don’t leave a great first impression, but constant freeze-thaw cycles and continuous use are bound to eventually cause damage. If your driveway has cracks, minor defects, or discoloration you may be considering either repairs or a full replacement, but there is a middle ground that might be the best answer for your situation. Resurfacing your concrete driveway (essentially removing the top layer of your driveway and replacing it) will give

Adding trees to your property will increase aesthetic appeal and value as well as purify the air. Unfortunately, trees planted near sidewalks, driveways, and patios may end up creating uneven, buckled, or collapsed concrete due to naturally expanding and thickening root systems. Tree roots can grow dozens of feet away from the trunk in search of water and they have a tendency to seek out soil that is non-compacted and oxygen-rich—like the soil under sidewalks and driveways. It is important to take proactive measures with planting to prevent future problems as well as make the best decisions for both your

  • Does your pool decking look aged, damaged, or faded?
  • Has your pool decking lost traction, becoming slick and unsafe?
  • Are you delaying making changes to your pool decking because you believe your only option is an expensive full replacement?

If your pool deck space is buckling, cracking, or crumbling you will likely need to replace the entire area due to the fact that the deck protects your pool’s crucial plumbing. However, if your pool decking needs minor repairs or you are looking to update its aesthetic appeal and safety, resurfacing is a faster and much more affordable option.

School downtime when students and faculty are not on school grounds is usually a few months in the summer. This year stay-at-home orders paired with an unknown return date for fall has expanded the window of time available to perform upgrades and maintenance. Take advantage of this unexpected opportunity by resurfacing concrete spaces in and around your school buildings.

Best Places for Concrete in a School

Finished concrete is quickly replacing more traditional options (carpet, tiles) in many schools, universities and public facilities, due to its cost, maintenance, longevity, and sustainability. Concrete flooring is ideal for classrooms, restrooms, offices, common

Stamped concrete, often called textured or imprinted concrete, provides a durable and unique surface to driveways, sidewalks, patios, pool areas, and more. Paired with the known durability of concrete, stamping provides several additional long-term benefits. 

Aesthetic: Patterns, Colors, and Textures

Concrete can be specially stamped to mimic natural stone (cobblestone, fieldstone, flagstone, slate, etc), wood planks, or brick. The stamping can also be applied in a wide variety of patterns including herringbone, basket weave, or chevron. Realistic stone coloration and contrasting color patterns can be created by mixing, layering, antiquing or using multiple colors. Concrete can

Unlike your home which is built to keep water outside, your home’s outdoor areas are exposed to the elements and prone to water damage, especially your concrete patios.

Drainage Problems

Water remaining pooled on your patio after a heavy rain is a sure sign that your patio isn’t draining properly. Not only does this prevent you from using your patio but if the water is pooling next to your house it can begin to seep into your basement. Here are some tips to identify your patio’s drainage problems.

Rainwater isn’t just water. Its composition varies based on chemicals in the local atmosphere. These chemicals then rain down onto your concrete and trigger processes and reactions in your concrete which make it vulnerable to deterioration.

Excessive moisture and long-term exposure to any type of water (like this year’s rainy winter) can negatively affect the structural performance of concrete. If you start to notice your concrete displaying signs of water damage, you will want to perform maintenance sooner rather than later to keep it safe and aesthetically pleasing.

Winter is always a particularly treacherous time of year for concrete surfaces. Beyond the cycle of constant changes in extreme winter temperatures that cause the moisture in the concrete to freeze and thaw, which takes its toll on a concrete slab’s structural integrity, there are the countless chemicals, de-icers, and salt compounds that are used to treat snow and ice that can also wreak even more havoc on your slab’s lifespan.

If you have a plain, old, drab slab in need of beautification and winterizing, a professional can apply a new, stamped surface to your existing slab that not only

Stamped concrete, often called textured or imprinted concrete, can replicate the look of slate, flagstone, tile, brick, and even wood. In addition to offering an improved visual aesthetic to a space, stamping can also offer a level of safety by reducing slip and fall potentials. More slip resistant than conventional concrete, stamped concrete is a permanent solution that reduces the human and financial cost of slip/fall accidents while eliminating the need for costly replacement safety mats or rugs. Grooves can be cut to channel water away from an area or patterns can be added to increase traction underfoot.

When it comes to effective ways to increase your home’s value while also dramatically increasing its curb appeal, few things are as cost-effective and impactful as renovating the concrete on your front entryway, walkways, and/or porch. Even though we’ve discussed the benefit of adding curb appeal by way of decorative concrete on the driveway, which is generally one of the first things most people notice about the front of your house, the front of the house itself certainly factors into the equation. 


Often times overlooked as something that can be renovated or refreshed, a drab walkway offers a wonderful opportunity to boost curb appeal

When it comes to stylish indoor flooring options, few things can match up to stained concrete when it comes to beauty, durability, cost, and ease of care. And while it may be easy to care for and maintain, one thing it isn’t is easy to apply. Even though the most confident DIYer might feel okay with attempting to stain a concrete surface, it really is a job best left to a professional.


When applying a decorative color stain to a concrete surface, it’s not only important to use the proper tools and chemicals, but it’s even more important to

2019 has arrived, and along with it, all the new year’s resolutions, hope, and optimism for what’s yet to come.

While the calendar and the thermometer still tell us that we’re clearly in winter’s frozen grip, it won’t be long at all before we’re hosing off our concrete surfaces and firing up the grill for some good ol’ Southern backyard living. Whether it’s just you, unwinding on the back porch after a long day at work or a patio full of people, there’s no denying that your outdoor space is a treasured spot where you can enjoy a lifetime’s worth of memories with family and friends. That’s why it’s important to pay special attention to the look and feel of

While the cold air of fall and winter have arrived to push the stifling heat of summer away, it’s that same cold air that can ravage cracked concrete, causing further damage, and making a bad situation even worse. That’s because cold air causes concrete to contract, causing the gaps to gape even wider, leaving the surface even more dangerous, too. Cracked concrete allows rainwater to seep into the soil underneath the slab, causing erosion, which only causes more cracking and further damage. If it happens to be a driveway, you can only imagine what harm the extreme weight of a

Occasionally, we here at Concrete Resurfacing Productsreceive online inquiries from our blogreaders, asking us random questions about decorative concreteand different aspects of its installation. Since it never seems to fail that we get a few like it around this time every year, we found the following question to be a timely one worth sharing and addressing:

Dear Concrete Resurfacing Products,

My wife and I have been thinking about getting the concrete on our back patio fixed and resurfaced and were wondering if there was any time of the year when it might be best to get the work done. We’d

If there’s one element of a multi-million-dollar showcase home that helps the most to set it apart from other homes, most would probably say it’s the attention to detail in every aspect. Whether it’s the interior or the exterior, paying attention to the details goes a long, long way. One area of the exterior of the home that is often horribly underrated and often neglected is the driveway. Yes, the driveway.

Usually gray in color, driveways (even brand new ones) weren’t necessarily designed to stand out and make any kind of statement. But when you invest in a resurfaced decorative

Summer is officially is in full swing and the if your household is anything like most people’s homes, the garage is getting its fair share of use this time of year. Whether it’s the summertime gear being stored in the garage, to the family vehicles going in and out for all the activities a busy family tends to engage in during this season, the garage tends to be one of the most heavily used areas of the home. Add to that the fact that it’s probably the primary point of access for most people’s homes and it’s plain to see

Summer’s right around the corner, which means the time is just right for any pre-summer sprucing up that you have planned for the exterior of your home and your other outdoor areas. Often times a second thought for most homeowners, the outdoor spaces around your house (pool decks, garages, patios, etc.) tend to get a lot more use during the warmer months of the year, which makes this the perfect time to assess the health of your concrete surfaces in order to have them resurfaced.
