Resurfacing Concrete Options That Will Allow You To Truly Modernise Your Home
Many homeowners in the Sydney area have concrete in their driveway, patio, pool surrounds or in some cases all three. Newly laid concrete can look great when it is brand new, however, over time it is very likely to start to lose its fresh look as cracks start to appear, the colouring begins to change and general wear and tear begins to make it look old and grubby. This is natural and will happen to all concrete surfaces over time.

The good news for homeowners in Sydney, is that you have a couple of options with which to modernise your concrete driveway, patio or pool surrounds.

Over $20,000 wasted with dodgy concrete contractors
You may be thinking that the cheapest resurfacing concrete quote is the best to go with as it’s just concrete but that is far from the case. Recently there was a video on A Current Affair where a family hired a friend to complete their brand new concrete driveway with the quote coming in at just over $20,000. As you can imagine if it made it on to A Current Affair the end result isn’t going to be stellar and sure enough it was one of the worst jobs one concreting expert had ever seen.
The water drain was actually concreted in, the driveway itself began to turn to rubble and the finish on the edges was absolutely pathetic. The reality for this family is that they’re going to have to hire the services of professionals and replace the whole driveway and invest another $20,000+ to get it back to normal.
Concrete is not just concrete!
Whilst many Sydney homeowners may believe that ‘concrete is just concrete’ it’s not actually the case and it is vital for your own peace of mind to ensure you hire professionals who have references and can back up their work with a water tight guarantee. That way you know you are covered if anything happens to go wrong.
Have you considered the safety of others?
Another important consideration is that, it’s actually important to ensure that your new concrete resurfacing job is safe for others to walk on. If your concrete contractors resurface your driveway poorly and cracks begin to appear, then it’s very possible for people to trip and injure themselves. This is especially true with young kids and as concrete is such a hard surface it’s important to leave nothing to chance and get the job done right the first time.
