The Process of Concrete Resurfacing

  1. Measuring the concrete surface to be resurfaced and quoting

It’s important to start with estimating the overall cost of the process of concrete resurfacing. The cost of resurfacing is determined by several factors. The size (in square meters) of the area to be resurfaced is one of the biggest determinants of the cost of resurfacing.

Although it may take a contractor the same time to resurface an area of 20 square meters and that of 40 square meters, a larger one will require more labour to resurface within the same time as the smaller one. Thus, customers may find labour charges to be higher for larger jobs.

Another crucial determinant for concrete resurfacing is accessibility. For instance, working in different areas of a property can be time-consuming. Thus, the price may increase where accessibility is challenging. Also, the price may vary depending on aspects like substrate condition and preparation. This is because some tasks require the use of extra products for enhanced leveling.

 

  1. Creating a plan and design for concrete resurfacing

You need to choose the pattern that will be applied for the concrete resurfacing process. Most are applied using a tape. The tape is used after applying a basecoat. Customers can choose the tile size, grout line thickness, or a custom pattern.

In case you prefer a stone-like pattern, you can use special features such as borders and pre-cut stencilcrete. Upon sticking the tape in place, the topcoat colour is applied over the basecoat. In this case, customers need to select your preferred fleck colour.

You can consider colours that will look naturally authentic. Also, you can choose a colour that will blend or contrast with the topcoat one.

 

  1. Cleaning and preparing for resurfacing

Preparation is key to successful concrete resurfacing. In most cases, the area requiring resurfacing is first pressure washed to remove unwanted contaminants.

 

  1. Applying the resurfacing system

Here’s the process of applying the resurfacing system:

  • Concrete Priming The existing surface is primed to make it ready for the application of a basecoat.

 

  • Basecoat: A basecoat is applied in this step. The basecoat will allow the topcoat to last long.

 

  • Pattern Application: Borders are applied using pre-cut concrete stencils or fiber-reinforced tapes.

 

  • Applying the Decorative Coating: Next, a decorative coating is applied over the whole surface.

 

  • Cleaning and Sealing: All stencils or tapes are removed. Next, the surface is swept. After that, the area will be sealed with a sealant for further protection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is concrete resurfacing?

Concrete resurfacing involves removing an old top concrete layer, repairing any minor cracks, and adding a new top surface instead of replacing the entire concrete floor. A resurfacer is used in resurfacing the concrete. It acts and looks like regular concrete, but it’s a bit different.

The resurfacer is made of unique bonding agents. These agents create a tight bond with the exposed concrete layer, thereby creating a cohesive and strong floor. Using regular concrete to resurface an old concrete floor causes the new surface to crumble within a short time.

Does concrete resurfacing last?

Concrete resurfacing has great bonding properties, making it last for some good time. If a concrete floor is properly resurfaced, it can last for about 8 to 15 years.

Can you pour new concrete on top of old concrete?

It’s possible to pour new concrete on top of an existing concrete floor. However, the process should be done properly to be effective. The contractor will pour not less than two inches of concrete with smaller aggregate. The concrete will also be reinforced with fiber or wire mesh when pouring it over the old concrete.

How will I know that my concrete floor requires resurfacing?

There’re certain factors that tell whether a concrete floor can be resurfaced or not. Concrete resurfacing is only suitable for floors whose structural integrity isn’t compromised and doesn’t have deep cracks.

If the floor is deeply cracked and the floor’s structural integrity is badly compromised, the best solution is to replace the entire concrete surface. You can consult a professional contractor to inspect your floor and advise on the best solution.

What’s the cost of concrete resurfacing?

The cost depends on the condition of the floor that needs resurfacing and its size. Other factors that affect the cost include accessibility to the floor by the concrete truck, location, slope and layout of the surface, irrigation, and whether stairs or steps are required. However, concrete resurfacing is often cheaper than concrete replacement.

What does resurfaced concrete look like?

Resurfaced concrete floors look almost similar to new concrete floors. However, repaired concrete shows repair blemishes or spots.

Is it possible to use special finishes or stains when resurfacing concrete?

Yes. It’s possible to polish and stain resurfaced concrete just like normal concrete. Special finishes and stains create a unique and attractive surface.

Can I resurface my own concrete?

Although you can buy a resurfacer from a local hardware outlet, it’s not recommended to do the project by yourself. The work is best left to an experienced professional.

The old concrete surface has to be prepared properly before pouring the resurfacer. Additionally, the resurfacer should be poured properly.

Else, it will get damaged sooner. Besides, there’re commercial-grade equipment required for the job. The work also requires professional finishing.
