TEXTURED CONCRETE RESURFACING
Rochester, NY, Concrete Resurfacing with Timeless
Textured concrete has been used for sidewalks and outdoor living spaces for decades – and for several good reasons. Its texture give heavily trafficked outdoor areas traction and grip for safety. The process for all textured concrete surfaces is basically the same, except for how the surface is finished. First the concrete is cleaned and any remaining worn sealer is removed. Then the concrete is repaired if necessary, a thin concrete overlay is applied, then texturized using a variety of methods. The last step of the textured concrete resurfacing process is to protect it from stains, mold, and surface deterioration using a sealer. Below we've listed several concrete textures to choose from.
Classic Broom Finished Concrete Resurfacing
There's a reason why people still love the classics, and it's no different with concrete. Traditional broom finished concrete is a timeless, practical, and is the most cost-effective concrete resurfacing option. First we'll throughly clean your existing concrete, lay down a primer, then pour the overlay. Next, we'll drag
a wooden broom on the troweled surface of the concrete while it's still fresh. This will leave small ridges on the concrete surface that will provide traction control and slip resistance. After your concrete has cured, we will then apply a protective sealant.
Sponge Finished Textured Concrete Resurfacing
This technique is exactly like it sounds. We prepare the concrete for texturing then pat the wet surface by hand with sponge to create a uniform, textured design. As in other textured concrete, sponge finished concrete provides traction making it ideal for areas around a pool, as well as heavy traffic areas.
Swirl Pattern Concrete Resurfacing
The swirl finish is accomplished by smearing the concrete surface with a trowel while the concrete is still wet, in a uniformly overlapping circular pattern – layered like petals on a rose. The depth and shape of swirls can be customized your preference.
Concrete resurfacing with a swirl finish is not only attractive, but the rough concrete provides a safer surface for standing and walking, even when wet. After we seal it, your new concrete will be protected from stains, mold, mildew, and more.
