Give New Look to Your Driveway by Concrete Resurfacing

It is quite common to see that your driveway, which was a ravishing concrete beauty not too long ago, is now all cracked, faded, and potholed. Basically, your driveway has turned into a sight that you will not like to see. The wear and tear is largely due to extreme temperatures, rain, pollution and weight of the vehicles driving through it. So what are your options in this situation?

To begin with, the first option that comes to most of our minds is to reconstruct the entire driveway. However, that will cost you a fortune. Instead, you can look out for possible ways by which you can just repair the damaged section of the concrete driveway and save some money. Thankfully, with the help of concrete resurfacing you can get the ravishing concrete look back and save up to 50% of the total cost that you would have otherwise spent in reconstructing the driveway. By hiring a reliable and affordable service provider, you can get your driveway resurfaced easily.

The first thing that you need to do in order to resurface your driveway is to clean it. The driveways must be cleaned thoroughly by using a pressure washer to make sure that the concrete resurfacing is effective. If your driveway has any oil stains in it, you will need a degreasing agent to clean them. It is also important to clean the cracks that you are planning to fill and repair.

You will need to use a concrete dressing in order to fill the cracks. To fill small/thin cracks, you will need a putty knife, but for wider/larger cracks, a caulking gun will work better. In either of these cases once the cracks have been filled, you will need a putty knife to smooth the dressing.

The next step is to mix concrete dressing. The concrete dressing should be applied fresh and therefore should be mixed in small batches. For resurfacing an entire driveway, you will need two persons. One for applying the dressing while the other for mixing the dressing for the next batch. While resurfacing a driveway, people generally prefer to have texture in it. Using texture concrete spray is the best way to get it. Texture concrete sprays can give the desired look and slip-resistant surface that you want.

Stay away from the driveway for around twenty four hours to let the concrete dressing dry. After twenty four hours, put a protective sealant on the driveway to complete the process of concrete resurfacing.
