How to Make Your Concrete Look New Again
There are few things that will cause a beautiful home to lose some of its curb appeal quicker than old, worn-down concrete. If this is the case for you, don’t fret — this does not mean that you will have to spend a lot of money replacing the concrete to make your space look new again!
Replacing concrete typically isn’t the answer, especially if it is still in relatively good condition. Read on for some great tips to help you with transforming your old, worn-down concrete into sleek pavement that looks good as new!
Through the years, your concrete will inevitably accumulate dirt and debris. This comes as a result of a lot of traffic, whether it be by foot, car, truck, or anything else for that matter. If you have noticed that your pavement looks especially dirty, don’t go right down the replacement route — try cleaning it with a pressure washer first.
You will likely be surprised at just how much dirt, debris, and strains a strong pressure washer can get out of your concrete. There are also some excellent concrete cleaners that are made to help get stains from tires, oil, and dirt out of your concrete. If you don’t own a pressure washer, many local home improvement stores offer rentals or offer services to come and provide you with an affordable washing so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself.
Another quick and easy way that you can make your concrete look good as new and improve your curb appeal is to resurface your concrete.
In order to do this, start off by giving your concrete a nice, deep clean. Then, you will want to use a quality concrete repair product such as FASCRETE in order to quickly and easily fix minor cracks and crumbling edges. This will allow you to bring your concrete back to life without having to completely redo it, and as an added bonus, concrete that has been resurfaced with FASCRETE will last longer and require much less maintenance. FASCRETE can be used for many different residential and commercial applications, including:
- Pool decks
- Parking decks
- And more
Adding Stain or Sealing Coats
Not only is concrete one of the most durable options for pavement, but it is also one of the most affordable. And while the main concern that people have with it is that it looks “plain,” or “bland,” when compared to other materials such as stone or brick, what these people don’t realize is that you can upgrade it to give it a completely new look (without the high price tag). You can stain your concrete to look like just about any other material, which can be a nice change from the grimy, old appearance that it may have right now.
Reviving Your Old Concrete
While you can’t turn back time on spalling or cracked concrete, you can fix it with the right concrete repair products. For example, take your FASCRETE that we mentioned earlier and spread an even layer on the concrete surface needing repair. Not only will it give your patio, driveway, or other concrete surface a smooth and wear-resistant finish, but it will also provide the look of freshly poured concrete (but with a much shorter working and wait time!). Unlike regular concrete, FACRETE fixes the problem fast and dries quickly so you don’t have to wait a long time to use your concrete surfaces again.
