When the concrete driveway is looking like an abandoned road that leads to nowhere, curb appeal is definitely non-existent. When the patio is looking plain and boring, satisfaction is definitely not achieved. While the initial solution would be to replace the entire slab, Atlanta concrete resurfacing is a more practical option.
Resurfacing is the process of adding a top layer or replacing the existing one with a more durable material. This is only appropriate for slabs with zero to minimal and surface-deep damage. Any slab with damage that is too deep and too extensive may better off be removed and replaced. For structurally sound concrete spaces, an overlay or coating is applied on the surface to give the entire space a new look with a more durable and more functional surface than it did before.
Top Decorative Concrete Resurfacing Options
Regardless of the purpose of a resurfacing a concrete pool deck, patio, driveway or garage floor, there is an appropriate coating or overlay that will yield great results. All decorative options are affordable, easy to clean and maintain, appealing, customizable, and highly durable.
- Stamped Concrete Overlay – For those who fancy a brick or stone patio, driveway, or pool deck but are not capable of making such a huge investment, then a stamped overlay is highly recommended. A cementitious overlay is installed, stamped, and stained to mimic flagstone, slate, running brick, and many other high-end materials. It can also be stamped with other patterns, custom or not, as desired.
- Spray Knockdown Texture – This acrylic concrete material is installed via a spray-down method that involves a hopper gun and a trowel. The material is sprayed on the slab and the splattered material is knocked down with a trowel. This spraying and knocking down process creates a slip-resistant texture that is perfect for outdoor surfaces like the pool deck. Spray texture is also known for its ability to maintain a cool temperature throughout the day.
- Epoxy Flooring – Epoxy is known for its durability and strong adhesion. An epoxy floor coating, which is a resin and hardener combined, is applied on an indoor concrete floor, creating a more durable and seamless surface that is highly resistant to damage. It can be customized with colors and paint chips, making it a decorative option as well. Epoxy flooring contractors in Atlanta, Georgia highly suggest to use this indoors because it is not as resistant to UV rays as one would hope it would be.
