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. 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 a contractor the same time to resurface an area of 20 square meters and that of 40 square meters, a larger area will require more labor to resurface within the same time as the smaller one. Thus, labor charges may be higher for larger jobs.
Another crucial determinant 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 when resurfacing. Most patterns are applied using a tape. The tape is used after applying a basecoat. You 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 color is applied over the basecoat. In this case, you’ll need to select your preferred fleck color.
You can consider a color that will look naturally authentic. Also, you can choose a color that will blend or contrast with the topcoat color.
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 concrete 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: Patterns or 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 concrete surface is swept. After that, the area will be sealed with a sealant for further protection.
