If your concrete floors are looking dirty, cracked and worn out, there is a more cost effective solution for you. Gone are the days where a broken concrete floor requires you to break it up, re-pour and replace. We all know that this can be both time and resource intensive.
So what’s the best alternative to replacing your concrete floors?
It’s a process called concrete resurfacing. It’s a great concrete repair option for homeowners that have cracked, discolored and old concrete floors that are in need of a makeover. Resurfacing your concrete can leave your old floors looking better than new.
What can we help you with?
Concrete resurfacing is the process of treating old concrete surfaces to transform it into newer looking finishes. There are various ways to go about resurfacing the floor itself. You can treat the existing concrete surface, or you can add a thin layer of new surfaces to the old. This all depends on the pre-existing condition of your concrete. As well as your desired end look. But at the end of the day, resurfacing your floors can alter the look of your entire home for the better.

Our concrete contractors understand that no one project is like the other. Each of our clients have different end outcomes they wish to achieve with our resurfacing services. As such, we typically mix and match across a wide range of these methods. But we thought we would bring light to the most popular techniques we use so that we can better explain our expertise in each.
We can transform your cracked and dull concrete into a work of art through acid staining. This is a process where we apply a liquid treatment containing a combination of minerals and acid. This permanently stains the concrete into vibrant finishes, creating a wide range of color effects. No two acid stained floors look the same. But the end result will always be one that is high shine, bright and one of a kind.
These are coloring agents that are applied and absorbed into the concrete’s surface to create different color palettes. Unlike acid staining, there is no chemical reaction between the treatment and the concrete. Rather, these dyes can be mix and matched to create a wide range of colored patterns in a controlled way. Sometimes we combine the two methods of acid staining and concrete eyes to create unique looks for our clients.
This is a technique we use to stamp your concrete floors with molds to mimic the look of other materials such as tiles and bricks. The textures and finishes you can achieve with stamping are endless.
