The first step in a concrete driveway resurfacing project is to repair any damage. Cracks that might be spreading across your driveway need to be fixed with sealer or filler before it’s resurfaced so the underlying structure can be protected.
Next, clean the surface with a pressure washer. This pulls off all the dirt, oil, and other debris that will keep the new surface from sticking to your concrete driveway.
Prepare the surface by grinding, etching, or acid-washing the concrete. The prepared surface lets the new overlay adhere better to the existing surface.
Mix your materials and be sure to add any coloring agents that you want on your new concrete surface.
Apply the coating using a trowel and allow the coating to dry. Typically, the concrete coating takes 24 hours to dry completely but you’ll want to check the labels of your materials to determine exactly how long the driveway will need to cure.
The last step in resurfacing a concrete driveway is to seal the surface. This is a crucial step that protects your driveway for the foreseeable future!
