Steve’s construction has been building and fixing concrete driveways in Waterford Michigan for the past 20 years

Concrete is one of the most durable surfaces available. However, even this material can become worn and damaged over the years, especially if it was installed improperly. The good news is the expensive process of replacing concrete is not always necessary. You may be able to resurface your driveway, patio or walkway for a fraction of the cost

Is your concrete driveway, patio or sidewalk cracked or spalling? This is most likely due to poor workmanship when it was poured. If the damage is not structural then resurfacing may be the best option for you. Resurfacing can be done on nearly any structurally sound concrete surface. Resurfacing will repair bad stains and discoloration along with minor cracks bringing new life to your old driveway or patio.

There are situations where resurfacing is not a good idea. You don’t want to spend money to resurface your driveway or patio only to then have to pay even more to get it fixed again a short time later. There are a few problems that indicate that you may need to replace your concrete structure

Sunken Concrete

Sunken concrete is usually the result of shifting soil, extreme weight or improper preparation of the sub-grade.

Large cracks

Large cracks that go all the way through the entire slab of concrete are usually a sign that there has been soil erosion under the concrete.

Frost heave

Frost heave is common in cold climate. It occurs when water in the ground freezes pushing the ground up and your concrete with it. This can create uneven surfaces and cracking in your driveway, patio or walkway.
