Concrete is a straightforward building material that consists of components such as cement, water and gravel. Once cured, concrete is unmatched for its durability and longevity. However, even concrete can experience aging and undergo major damage. National Concrete Polishing is aware that concrete surfaces can crack overtime, causing imperfections, or may even experience surface discoloration. The process of removing those damaged surfaces and pouring a new slab can be painfully expensive and a headache to say the least. Thankfully you won’t have to worry about that if you choose to resurface those concrete slabs. Concrete resurfacing completely revitalizes worn out concrete, including driveways, sidewalks and patios, giving you a fresh start with your already existing concrete surfaces. Concrete resurfacing is an ideal option when the surface of a concrete slab or structure is cosmetically marred but in otherwise good shape. National Concrete Polishing is available to properly prepare and restore your damaged concrete surfaces.
What Is Concrete Resurfacing
Concrete resurfacing is the process of giving your concrete surfaces new life. You can resurface any old concrete by cleaning the surface, repairing cracks and holes, applying an overlay, curing the surface or coloring and sealing the surface. It may sound like a lot, but it is much quicker and more economical than pouring a whole new surface.

Our concrete resurfacing process assures you of a durable and effortlessly attractive floor because we use the highest-quality product, applied with state-of-the-art machines. Below is a step-by-step process of what we will do for you.
1. CLEANING THE CONCRETE SURFACE
This is one of the most critical steps in the process, as it helps eliminate minor and heavy stains. We don’t want to leave room for oil, grease, old sealers, and other contaminants on the floor.
2. CONCRETE REPAIR
After removing the old sealer, we ensure that the concrete under it is fixed to remove dents, cracks, and chips. We use a 5 to 12-step grinding and honing process to make the concrete smooth and perfect for resealing.
3. ROUGHING UP THE CONCRETE SURFACE
To make the new overlay sit tightly on the surface, we ensure to roughen up the concrete surface after repair. We use heavy-duty grinders to ensure the surface is just rough enough to make it easy for the overlay to sit tightly.
4. APPLYING THE OVERLAY
Once the roughening phase has been completed, we begin to apply the overlay. We apply the texture coat along with trowelling. This stage is where we also add the color coat, depending on the results you want to see.
5. SEALING THE SURFACE
The sealing stage is what assures you of durability and longevity. This stage can be completed in one day, but you must let it cure for two to three days. Our technicians are waiting to give you the best concrete resurfacing results. Send us a message today.
