Concrete Resurfacing

BandageNo matter how much care you take with your concrete driveway it will eventually start to wear.

If your home was built in the last fifty years your driveway, and probably your walkway, are built with concrete. These outdoor features of your home need to be made of materials that are durable and long lasting, and concrete fits the bill.

What do you do when signs of aging start to appear? Whether it’s pitting due to oil or other petroleum products leaking from vehicles onto the surface, or from shifting soil that leaves cracks in the cement where grass and weeds can grow, your driveway can become an ugly welcome home.

If your driveway is looking like it may need to be jack-hammered out and re-poured that can be a big expense.

Here’s the good news, don’t just put a bandage on it, there is another solution. Concrete resurfacing is a way to bring those aging concrete walks and drives back to life.

Polished Concrete Floors

Treating concrete with a chemical densifier and then grinding it with progressively finer grinding tools can create beautiful basement and garage floors. Progressively finer grits of diamond polishing pads are used to achieve a slick polished surface. Often the surface is either stained or dyed but branding and logos can also be added along with scoring, borders and other design features to make a concrete floor come to life.

Hardscapes Inc. specializes in these types of floors and can make any concrete surface become a focal point at home, work or garage.
