Five Ideas for Remodeling with Concrete

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.
