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 up outside is the concrete surfaces upon which you gather. Aside from the occasional pressure washing or painting, it’s funny how we don’t often think about sprucing up a drab concrete slab – the literal foundation for all our outdoor gatherings.
If you look into the backyards of most typical Georgia homes, you’re likely to find the simple, little, contractor-grade slab of gray concrete, tiny in area, but large in its need for repair and renovation. Perhaps it’s cracked in tiny portions or even in large chunks. Often overlooking its potential, most homeowners either wish to tear it out completely or lack any plan for it altogether. One quick and affordable way to renovate the patio is by hiring a professional concrete resurfacing expert to not only extend the area of the patio, but also add instant flair by applying a decorative concrete finish to the surface.
Concrete resurfacing consists of replacing, repairing, and upgrading an old, cracked, broken slab of concrete with a cement-based mixture that’s poured directly upon the existing slab in order to create a brand-new surface that can then be decorated with a wide assortment of artistic touches such as various colors, finishes, patterns, and textures to suit any decor or aesthetic. While the patio is the perfect place for such an application, decorative concrete is by no means restricted to just the patio area, however.
When you consider all the outdoor surfaces around your home, it’s easy to see that the patio is just the beginning. Actually, your house is surrounded by concrete surfaces, both indoor and outdoor. Driveways, garages, sidewalks, walkways, porches, and even pool decks are all made of concrete and quite possibly in need of professional renovation and revitalization. Imagine the total transformation that could take place if you were to consider the effect a professional concrete artisan could have on your home and all its concrete surfaces.
Not to mention, a professionally installed decorative concrete finish provides a level of safety, added vital traction to outdoor surfaces that can often be wet or icy due to weather conditions.
