Concrete is a favourite building material, and it’s easy to see why: it’s highly durable and widely versatile. Considering how popular it is, it’s likely you have at least one concrete surface in your home. Concrete requires little maintenance, but even tough slabs from a reliable concrete company won’t last forever. If you have concrete pathways that are beginning to show wear and tear, keep reading to learn about how to give them a new look.
Repair Cosmetic Damage on Concrete Pathways with Concrete Resurfacer
Wear, staining, flaking, and small cracks can ruin the look of your pathways. Thankfully, these cosmetic issues are easy to fix. A concrete resurfacer goes over existing concrete to transform its aging appearance and make it look great again. Start by thoroughly cleaning the surface. Prepare and apply the resurfacer according to the package directions. Usually you combine the mix with water, use it to pre-fill any small holes or cracks, then spread a thin, even layer over your concrete.
Use a Multipurpose Repair Material for Structural Damage
Cracks, chipping, and crumbling require more extensive repair. A multipurpose repair material can repair this type of damage. Prepare the surface by thoroughly cleaning it. Mix and apply the repair material according to the manufacturer’s directions. Smooth the surface with a trowel, broom, or float. Applying a resurfacer or sealer after the patch has dried helps protect and unify the surface of concrete pathways.
