If you want your existing concrete to take on a whole new look, you can take advantage of our RestoraCrete concrete resurfacing service. Instead of removing your concrete, RestoraCrete can put a decorative overlay in place to completely change the look of your floor, driveway, patio or pool deck. Our specialized process will make your home look fresh and unique, and help you stand apart from all of your neighbors. As everyone in Orange County knows, it is important to maintain an aesthetically pleasing appearance, and a RestoraCrete decorative concrete coating is the perfect way to do this without spending a lot of money.
Most contractors will suggest laying new concrete, but the truth is that you can use a restoration project instead that will actually provide you with better results. For example, if we resurface your patio, the process will help you avoid an expensive repair bill while letting you select a new color and design to enhance your property. Additionally, we are proud to use the highest end quality products which gives us confidence in our deliverable product. Once the process has been completed, you will have a gorgeous new look that will fit into any neighborhood without costing an exorbitant amount of money. This makes it easy for our clients to mimic the styles that they see in the most affluent Orange County neighborhoods.
Aside from our years of experience in the concrete industry we also have strategic partnerships with some of the highest end quality material manufactures. Therefore, when you need to hire a resurfacer or concrete restoration specialist , it makes perfect sense to choose our company. We would be happy to help you select the right coatings for every concrete surface on your property, and we can help you increase the value of your home with one of our quality resurfacing projects.
Well, for one thing, concrete resurfacer is a lot more expensive than plain concrete. In my area, a 60-pound bag of concrete mix costs $2, while a 40-pound bag of resurfacer runs about $20. Big difference, which might make you want to think about taking the "budget" route by simply mixing up a bag of concrete mix or mortar mix and applying a thin layer.
Don't even think about it! It won't work. Regular concrete does not contain any kind of bonding agent. If it is applied to old, cured concrete, it will not form much of a bond. As a result, the added layer will start crumbling sooner rather than later.
Concrete resurfacer, on the other hand, contains special bonding agents that overcome that limitation. That's why it costs so much more, and why it is so smart to pay that extra amount. I think the real way to compare costs is not to look at the relative expense of bags of each product, but rather to compare the cost of resurfacing a slab versus breaking it up, removing it and pouring a new slab. From that vantage point, resurfacing starts to look like a bargain.
Resurfacers are self-leveling, meaning that they don't need to be worked extensively to create a level surface. They pour and spread easily, and your only real job is just to ensure that the resurfacer has been spread around the entire surface. You don't have to worry about trowelling to a level surface, which is necessary with new concrete.
Concrete resurfacers are only available in one color, plain gray. But they can be tinted with colorants made specifically for concrete products. One thing to consider if you plan to resurface only part of a larger slab is that it is hard to match colors. New concrete looks new, and old concrete looks old. If you really want to make the surface look new again, it's best to plan on resurfacing all of it.
