Does concrete resurfacer really work?
Concrete resurfacer is a very strong product, rated for a compressive strength of about 4,500 psi. This is actually stronger than the slab itself, so properly applied, resurfacing layers can be very durable.
Does concrete resurfacing last?
How long does it last? Thanks to its advanced bonding properties, concrete resurfacing can last for quite a while. A properly resurfaced floor can last from 8-15 years.
How thick can quikrete resurfacer be applied?
One 40 lb (18.1 kg) bag of Concrete Resurfacer will cover approximately 17 ft2 (1.6 m2) of surface at a thickness of 1/4 in (6.4 mm) or approximately 90 ft2 (8.4 m2) per bag when applied at the minimum thickness with a broom or squeegee.
Will concrete resurfacer crack?
So, damages are inevitable. Over time, you may start noticing small cracks occurring across the surface of your concrete driveway. Sometimes they also appear as small divots. Either way, these are signs that your driveways are beginning to experience minor damage.
Can I resurface my concrete driveway?
Concrete resurfacing to cover larger cracks or surface problems. Large cracks or holes greater than ¼”, spalling (horizontal peeling or chipping of the surface), and discoloration can be covered with resurfacing or a concrete overlay (a thin layer of cement-based material applied directly over the existing concrete).
Can I pour concrete over existing concrete?
If done properly, new concrete can often be poured right over an existing slab. For this to be feasible, the contractor needs to pour at least 2 inches thick, use smaller aggregate, and incorporate reinforcement such as welded wire mesh or fiber mixed into the concrete.
Is concrete resurfacing expensive?
The average cost to resurface 100 square feet of concrete is $400. Less expensive projects can run as little as $300 while more expensive ones are about $500. Concrete with a decorative overlay typically ranges in price from $7 to $12 per square foot while stamped concrete costs $8 to $20.
Should I resurface my driveway?
If the top of your driveway needs extensive repairs but the foundation is still intact, or if you are concerned about the look of patched concrete or filled in cracks, consider resurfacing it instead.
Can you stamp quikrete concrete resurfacer?
Resurfacers can be applied in a variety of thicknesses making it viable for many types restoration repairs. Beyond repair and restoration, resurfacers protect concrete to help minimize maintenance moving forward. Concrete restored with a resurfacer can be colored, stamped and/or stained for added aesthetic value.
Is quikrete as strong as regular concrete?
Quikrete fast setting concrete is just as strong as regular concrete. Concrete gets its strength from a chemical reaction that occurs over time during curing. After it’s had time to cure, which usually take 28 days to complete, Quikrete can reach strengths up to 5000 psi.
Can crumbling concrete be repaired?
The Cure for Crumbling Concrete Steps
As long as the steps are structurally sound—meaning, they’re not spalling, flaking, or broken all the way through—you can repair most surface issues. If your patch is thicker, build the vinyl concrete patcher up in ¼ inch applications.
What is the cheapest way to resurface a drive?
Gravel and Stones
A gravel driveway is by far the cheapest and quickest to install, especially if the existing driveway sub-base is sound.
