If your concrete walls, walkways, floors or driveways have become stained or dirty, then concrete restoration could help you to fix these problems. Concrete restoration can make your surfaces look new again, without the hassle and expense of completely replacing the concrete.
Special power cleaning tools are used to efficiently renew the concrete. Then a sealant can be applied, which will protect the underlying surface from water and oil stains, which would sink in, on unprotected concrete. However, in certain extreme circumstances concrete repair is the only way to restore concrete to its original condition.
Concrete restoration can help with many different cleaning and sealing issues, as well as stabilizing a building foundation and fixing broken or cracked concrete. One common problem with concrete is that cracks will often form. The cracks can develop for a variety of reasons including stress fractures, water damage and heavy use.
It is recommended that they be repaired as soon as they are noticed, so that they will not expand. One small crack can cause water damage, erosion and moisture penetration. Movement and structural cracks are another problem that can be fixed through concrete restoration. Deteriorated or pitted surfaces can be remedied with a special based polymer mortar, which can also help to repair delaminated and spalled surfaces.
If you need a concrete job done in a hurry, then a Perma-Patch can be applied, which will set in about 15 to 20 minutes, and allow light traffic in about an hour.
