Although you may understand the basics of decorative concrete resurfacing, you may not fully realize the incredible benefits of this solution. Today, decorative concrete is found in millions of homes and businesses throughout the country. Whether on floors, driveways, walkways, courtyards, patios, pool decks, or another surface, this is an excellent way to transform concrete.
To truly appreciate decorative concrete resurfacing, you need to consider the many benefits. If you have concrete that has become dull, damaged, or discolored, whether located inside or outside, it has a direct effect on the aesthetics of the surrounding area. Once the concrete is resurfaced, the home or business, as well as landscaping and nearby amenities, look beautiful, fresh, and clean.
Decorative concrete resurfacing is a better solution than having the entire concrete slab ripped out. It saves a tremendous amount of time. Having old concrete removed or even re-poured requires a lot of time. That means that you have to endure a mess for weeks, if not months. In comparison, with the right system, decorative concrete resurfacing can be done quickly and efficiently with a product like Sundek’s Tuscan, a handcrafted textured overlay with European style, or SunCanvas, a micro-topping coating that creates a new concrete canvas.
With decorative concrete resurfacing, you have the opportunity to create unique designs using color, texture, or both. For example, with stamped concrete, your contractor can replicate the look of real hardwood, brick, sandstone, granite, limestone, flagstone, and more. By adding one or more colors, you end up with a one-of-a-kind aesthetic that will make you the envy of everyone.
Decorative concrete resurfacing increases the resilience for future wear and tear. As a strong, durable, and, in some cases, stain- and abrasion-resistant material, it looks great for years. A prime example is epoxy. Ideal for driveways, garages, and other spaces, this coating is highly resistant to stains, water, chemical spills, impact, tire marks, and so on.
There is also a chance that the value of your home or business will increase by choosing decorative concrete resurfacing. This investment enhances the aesthetics and lasts a long time. Because resurfacing fixes floors and other concrete surfaces that are cracked, worn, or damaged, they look new. In addition to improved curb appeal, resurfaced concrete looks amazing up close. Depending on where the decorative concrete is applied, your contractor can even create a nonslip surface.
