Continue reading to catch up on a few concepts to consider before ultimately deciding on concrete repair or concrete resurfacing services for your residential or commercial property.
Structural Integrity of Concrete Paving
Take a look at your concrete and the cracks. If cracks are smaller than a quarter of an inch and the slabs haven’t lifted or moved vertically, then there shouldn’t be a need for all-out concrete repair. These small cracks are easier to repair at this size; so the concrete pavement can be resurfaced rather than replaced. If the structural integrity of the concrete slabs are lifted and moved, and cracks are becoming crevices, then concrete repair is most likely needed.
Sinking or Eroding Concrete Pavement
Minimal to moderate concrete sinking and heaving can sometimes be combated with a hydraulic leveler; eliminating the need for extensive concrete repair. On the other hand, if more than half of the existing pavement contains cracks, deterioration, sinking, or heaving, then it may need a professional concrete repair job. Also, if concrete paving is eroded more than a third of the way, then concrete repair is highly recommended for proper restoration and results.
Concrete Discoloration, Fading, and Wear
If the concrete pavement is free of large cracks and crevices, but appears worn and faded, then restoration and resurfacing is the best option. This option reduces the concrete service costs nearly in half! Discoloration, weathering, and aging can all be turned around with an effective concrete resurfacing and restoration job.
