What to Expect From a Professional Concrete Restoration Company.
Surface Preparation. The first and most essential step in concrete restoration is surface preparation. Any existing paint, coatings or contaminants must be removed to confirm proper adhesion of the new coating. For example, we restored the exterior deck at a busy outdoor mall, which had suffered damage and deterioration from heavy foot traffic and exposure to the elements. After preparing the surface with diamond grinding for a non-slip surface, we applied a concrete densifier that penetrates the concrete for a protective coating that will retain its great look for years.
Polished Concrete Option. Following surface prep, there are a few options for restoring the surface. Polished concrete is often an excellent choice, as it doesn’t require extensive remodeling. It’s also an environmentally friendly procedure that involves no elaborate chemicals or synthetic products.
Clear Coat Finishing Option. Another option available from concrete restoration contractors is a clear finish coating, which can enhance any substrate surface. This method achieves an elegant high gloss or matte finish for concrete or masonry. It is also easy to clean and maintain for long-lasting aesthetic appeal.
Elastomeric Coating Option. Elastomeric coatings are an exceptional choice for exterior decks and walls, or for surfaces that are constantly exposed to moisture. Concrete restoration contractors can provide elastomerics, which have superior waterproofing capabilities that protect your substrate from moisture damage, while also enhancing the look of your deck, flooring or walls.
