Can old concrete be resurfaced?

Old concrete can be an issue, but you don’t always have to replace it. Instead, you can resurface it. Resurfacing is a great option to make damaged or dated concrete look new. It involves a concrete coating being poured over the old surface and can be done to driveways, parking lots, patios, and more.

When should concrete be resurfaced?

If you aren’t sure whether or not you should resurface your concrete or completely replace it, there a few things to consider. It depends on your goal, and you want to be sure you go with the right approach. Resurfacing is best for:

  • Repairing cracks 
  • Fixing any discoloration
  • Hiding concrete imperfections
  • Renewing outdated concrete

Resurfacing is a repair option that saves you money and conserves resources. However, if the concrete is badly damaged, you should consider replacing it altogether. Hire an experienced professional to assess it and fix the issue for you. This will help you avoid any potential future problems, such as further damage.

Does concrete resurfacer last?

Concrete itself is one of the strongest building materials and can last a long time. Repair options like resurfacing make it last even longer. Not only that, but it helps old concrete look new and can be used for minor repairs and discoloration. 

Resurfacer is more durable than the concrete slab itself, especially when layered. It’s a great investment and can be a better option than completely removing the concrete, depending on the issue.
