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 falls, but the danger is multiplied once the surface is covered with ice and snow. Clearing snow from these uneven areas is also difficult and dangerous since hitting the uneven spots with your shovel could break your shovel and also cause potential injury.
Superficial concrete damage doesn’t require full replacement. You can easily restore and upgrade your concrete walkway with resurfacing. This cost-effective option covers minor flaws and discoloration while also adding an optional decorative touch. The concrete can also be stamped, stained, or stenciled to mimic the look of brick, stone, tile, or slate. The process for giving your damaged walkways new life is much quicker and more economical than pouring new concrete. A skilled Concrete Resurfacing technician will clean the existing concrete surface, repair cracks and holes, and then prime and cover the area with a spray-on polymer concrete, finishing with a trowel. Optional decorative coloring will then be applied before a final sealant. After a 48-72 hour curing period, your beautifully resurfaced concrete walkway will ready for regular daily use.
