Unique Concrete has the ability, through extensive trials and testing, to resurface existing concrete driveways, entryways, and sidewalks. Our product can not only be used to update the look of these areas, but we can also resurface areas that have failed in someway. There are many other concrete resurfacing products on the market today. Almost all of them are thin coatings of a polymer modified concrete. This is usually a combination of fine aggregate, cement, and an acrylic admixture. In order for these products to work, especially in harsh climates, they require an excellent bond to the existing substrate. This requires the existing concrete to be in excellent structural condition, if it is not, then you will run the risk of delamination. If the concrete is in pour shape, i.e., spalling (top surface delaminations), settling, cracking, or inferior installations, you will not be able to use these polymer modified products. Often your only option is to tear out and install something in its place. In this instance our process can become very cost effective. Also we are now offering a lifetime guarantee against delamination and a conditional guarantee against uneven settling.
This process of concrete resurfacing is especially useful for driveways, entryways, and sidewalks. For resurfacing driveways, with our unique two step process, we can add much more reinforcement than is often found in a full thickness pour. In this instance we treat the existing driveway as an excellent base material, superior to compacted fill.
We can dramatically change the look of entryways and sidewalks. We have the ability to create a structural shell over the existing area. This becomes especially useful for front entryways. In many cases we can add stone to all vertical areas, creating a brand new looking entryway at a much less cost than demolition and reinstallation.
We have won several international awards over the past few years and been featured in concrete industry magazines and online publications using these techniques. We have many examples of these processes in the gallery below.
