Concrete Repair & Resurfacing
Sometimes concrete surfaces need to be repaired or resurfaced, depending on the problem. At Midland Concrete Management, we have extensive experience in the repair and maintenance of concrete, and we believe you’ll make no better investment for your surface than employing our services. Concrete is a highly durable material, but there are some circumstances where it might become damaged or begin to deteriorate. Below, we’ll run through some of those scenarios, explain how they might have come about, and the best ways to move ahead with getting your concrete looking back at its best.
There are different types of issues regarding concrete surfaces, and by defining exactly what they are you can more efficiently resolve them. If you’re dealing with a small patch, the fixes might be relatively minor, but larger cracks need more substantial attention, and a resurfacing might be the optimal way to go. Extensive structural damage, or when the surface begins to start sinking, will be beyond the capabilities of a repair or resurface, and will need total replacement. Of course, you can trust us to be honest and upfront about the need for these different services, and the costs likely involved with undertaking them.
What Causes These Problems?
We stand behind the quality and durability of our concrete products, and believe that they should last you a lifetime, so why do these problems occur? If problems start to emerge, it’s usually because the installer has made a mistake along the way. Some of the potential blunders could be to do with an improperly compacted subgrade, an inadequate concrete mix, or bad placement procedures. If you choose to employ our installation services, we’re confident all these issues will be avoided, but unfortunately we can only do our best to assist those who have already had ineffective fittings.
Once we’ve visited the site and evaluated the cause and scope of the problem at hand, it’ll be time to begin the process of fixing it. With small cracks, patching the area is an easy fix, that is relatively low cost, and returns functionality. It should be noted that concrete patches will not match the previous surface, and this can look less appealing if you have widespread cracks on your surface. Of course, it will still function safely and properly, which is the main concern for our customers.
Time to Resurface?
Other larger cracks will not be fixable through simple patching, and a resurface will have to be the solution. Many people also choose to resurface their concrete if they have multiple smaller cracks, as it tends to look better once the repairs are made. Resurfacing also allows you to add decorative finishes, like stamping and coloring – so it can look brand new. Unfortunately, if the concrete is suffering from sinking, or extreme structural damage, even resurfacing will not be a sufficient fix, and it will need to be replaced. We can evaluate the severity of your concrete’s problems, and we’ll be transparent about the need for the fix, and the cost of doing so.
