Understanding Concrete Resurfacing

Concrete resurfacing, also known as overlaying, is a method used to restore worn or damaged pavement surfaces without the need for complete replacement. It is a cost-effective technique that involves applying a thin layer of concrete to the top of the driveway to repair cracks and remove other blemishes. Modern overlay techniques and concrete resurfacing products are better than ever, however, resurfacing is not the best option to address underlying structural issues that are leading to the damaged driveway surface. Plus, nothing compares to a newly installed concrete driveway. Still, for those working within a budget and looking to restore their driveway to that fresh new look, resurfacing offers an affordable option.

The preparation process involves cleaning the existing surface and sometimes grinding it to remove the top layer of failing concrete. The new concrete layer is  

then applied on the surface of an existing slab, typically with less than 1/2 inch of thickness. There is an additive in the concrete mix that helps it bond it to the existing pavement. This surface acts as the new face of the concrete. A broom or trowel finish is usually applied, but if you want to upgrade your driveway, stamp overlays are also possible with your driveway refinish.

How Long Does Resurfacing Last?

You may be wondering how long refinishing will last, and like most things with construction, it depends on several factors. It is possible for a resurfaced residential driveway to last for 10 to 15 years if installed and cared for correctly.

The first thing to consider is the condition of the underlying concrete. Think of it as the foundation for the resurfaced pavement. If there are many cracks of underlying damage, then a resurfaced driveway will not last very long before showing signs of deterioration.

Weather and climate also plays an important role in the lifespan of a restored pavement. Generally speaking, mild climate conditions will be best for the lifespan of a restored surface. Things like freeze-thaw, excessive rain, and extreme temperatures may impact the length of time the resurfaced driveway will last.

Protecting a resurfaced concrete driveway is critical for a pavement that will last and this is why it is important to call the pros at El Paso Concrete Driveway Contractors. The new surface should be free from any imperfections before the final finishing sealer is applied. Select a high quality sealer that is designed to handle the unique weather conditions of the Sun City.

Resurface or Replace- Make an Informed Decision

The best way to determine if you need to replace your driveway is by contacting our specialists for a free consultation. Resurfacing is not always the best option and there are some things you can look for to know if your driveway needs to be completely replaced. Cracks that are bigger than a quarter of an inch and extend through the depth of the concrete is one sign that there is a structural issues that an overlay will not effectively resolve. You may notice signs of a leaking pipe or flooding that is eroding the ground underneath the slab. Resurfacing will not fix the underlying problem that is causing your driveway to sink. Tree roots are another cause of driveway damage that a concrete overlay will not fix.
