The Process of Concrete Resurfacing
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.
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.
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.
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.
