Concrete Resurfacing Preparation Overview
A properly prepared concrete substrate is the most important factor in concrete resurfacing.
Here is an overview of the steps involved:
- Cleaning the Concrete: methods vary depending on the condition of the existing concrete.
- Repairing Cracks
- Profiling the concrete to give it enough "grab" to bond with the resurfacing bond coat.
- At this point- the resurfacing process starts.
Clearly, this is a simple overview and books have been written about each of the above topics. A good general rule is this: follow installation instructions per the resurfacing product manufacturers specifications.
