How does concrete resurfacing work?

When concrete is resurfaced, a coating is placed on top of the existing concrete (the existing concrete must be structurally sound in order to do this). That coating is then customized with colors, patterns, and texture, giving it a unique look. The result is a surface that looks brand new but costs a fraction of the price of tearing out concrete and starting from scratch.

At SUNDEK of Houston, we can resurface just about any area, residential and commercial! Here are some of our decorative concrete specialties.

Can damaged concrete be resurfaced?

Yes, it can! Concrete coatings can be applied to surfaces even if they’re chipped, cracked, spalling, or fading. At SUNDEK of Houston, we can help identify the cause of the damage so it doesn’t happen again on your new surface. We'll repair the damage then apply a coating to the entire surface so you won't be able to tell where the damage was. If existing cracks are too big or there’s risk of them occurring again, they can be worked into the design with custom scorelines, creating a beautiful look that doesn’t look like cracked concrete.

What types of design options are available?

Design options are limitless with SUNDEK coatings. You can choose specific patterns, textures, and colors (see more about our stained concrete options). If there’s a particular material you like, we can even mimic that look with stamped concrete (for example, wood planks, limestone, cobblestones, brick, and more). Or you can go with a simple broom finish.

What is maintenance like?

The most important way to maintain your surface is to have it sealed with a high-quality sealer. A good sealer will protect it from everything from general wear and tear to stains from things like oil spills and more.

Other than that, maintenance is simple. Every few weeks, you’ll want to remove dirt and other debris. For stains that are hard to remove, you can use a non-abrasive commercial cleaner. We have more information about maintaining our concrete coatings here.
