It is quite common to see that your driveway, which was a ravishing concrete beauty not too long ago, is now all cracked and faded. Basically, your driveway has turned into a sight that you will not like to see. The wear and tear is largely due to extreme temperatures, rain, pollution and weight of the vehicles driving through it. So what are your options in this situation?
To begin with, the first option that comes to most of our minds is to reconstruct the entire driveway. However, that will cost you a fortune. Instead, you can look out for possible ways by which you can repair only the damaged section of the concrete driveway and save some money. Thankfully, with the help of concrete caulking you can get the ravishing concrete look back and save up to 50% of the total cost that you would have otherwise spent in reconstructing the driveway. By hiring a reliable and affordable service provider, you can get your driveway resurfaced easily.
The first thing that you need to do in order to resurface your driveway is to clean it. The driveway must be cleaned thoroughly by using a pressure washer to make sure that the concrete resurfacing is effective. If your driveway has any oil stains in it, you will need a degreasing agent to clean them. It is also important to clean the cracks that you are planning to fill and repair.
You will need to use a concrete dressing in order to fill the cracks. A putty knife is used to fill small/thin cracks, but a caulking gun will work better for wider/larger cracks. In either of these cases once the cracks have been filled, you will need a putty knife to smooth the dressing.
The next step is to mix concrete caulking. The concrete caulking driveway should be applied fresh and therefore should be mixed in small batches. For resurfacing an entire driveway, you will need two people – one for applying the dressing and the other for mixing the dressing for the next batch. While resurfacing a driveway, people generally prefer to have texture in it. Using texture concrete spray is the best way to get it. Texture concrete sprays can give the desired look and the slip-resistant surface that you want.
Stay away from the driveway for around 24 hours to let the concrete dressing dry. After 24 hours, put a protective sealant on the driveway to complete the process of concrete resurfacing.
