Concrete Restoration is often seen as merely a cosmetic concern. However, for restoration applications to be effective the concrete must be treated not only on the surface, but as deep into the concrete as possible. When starting any restoration procedure, it is important to properly clean and remove all contaminants from the surface of the concrete. Once the surface is contaminant free we are able to chemically harden and preserve the inner body of the concrete.
As concrete ages, it can become weak due to weathering and moisture erosion. By applying an erosion inhibitor which penetrates the body of the concrete, we are able to combat the natural deterioration process and help preserve it. The penetrating product crystallizes the many voids within the aggregate layers, closing the gaps and densifying the concrete from bottom to top.
Once the concrete surface has been hardened we can turn our attention to the cosmetic appearance.

Why Choose Concrete Restoration?
The primary advantage of concrete restoration is that it is less expensive than a new construction, yet it still gives the appearance of having all new concrete. In addition to improving the overall look, cracks are repaired and this solves structural problems. Because concrete restoration is cheaper, it is easier to stay on top of as part of a routine property maintenance program. This prevents problems from getting out of hand and manages risk by helping to keep people safe.
