Concrete Repair Company
Concrete sidewalks come in a close second to concrete driveways in the amount of traffic they receive. And just like driveways, they are often treated with deicing salts in the winter. All that wear and tear and chemical abuse can take a toll on the appearance of concrete walkways by causing abrasion, spalling, stains and freeze-thaw damage.
The good news is that if the damage is superficial, as is often the case, it’s possible to restore and upgrade the appearance of your concrete walkway rather than go through the expense and hassle of replacing it.
Resurfacing with a cement-based overlay or microtopping is a cost-effective option for adding a decorative touch to an existing concrete walkway while covering up minor flaws and discoloration. After the overlay is applied to the existing concrete, it can then be stamped, stained, stenciled or engraved to add color or simulate the look of brick, stone, tile or slate. Before beginning a concrete walkway resurfacing project, be sure to consult a professional to determine if your concrete can be resurfaced successfully. If the concrete slab is settling or is badly cracked, resurfacing may not be a viable option.
