Concrete is an extremely durable building material, which accounts for it being used in some of the world’s most well-known structures, from the Pantheon to the Hoover Dam. Despite its evident strength and versatility, there comes a point when maintenance becomes necessary. If you are nearing that point, you may have noticed the following signs:
Stains and Blemishes
Concrete is a porous material which means it is capable of absorbing liquids. That means it can easily be stained by wine, grease and oil. If you have concrete that has been stained, you may have tried everything to remove it, only to find that scrubbing is no match against stains. Splotches and stains on these surfaces are best removed by a pressure washer.
Over time, concrete will begin to crack and deteriorate due to heavy foot traffic and the elements. When this happens, you’ll want to bring the professionals as soon as you can for repairs. If left unrepaired, the crack will grow, which means more extensive concrete work. The best way to repair it is by injecting the crack with epoxy and patching the surface.
As the soil beneath it shifts, so will the concrete itself. While concrete is an extremely long-lasting material, it is not the most flexible, which means cracks are bound to happen. When you have a problem due to settling soil, give us a call. We will do an evaluation and let you know if it can be repaired, or if a replacement is necessary.
A Wide Range of Surfaces
An increasing number of people are looking to concrete for their outdoor patio or driveway because it is durable, long-lasting and affordable. What’s more is that it can be stamped with different patterns and enhanced with different dyes to make it look like other, more expensive types of stones, including flagstone, slate and brick. This results in an attractive outdoor surface without the high price tag.
To ensure your stamped concrete always looks its best and lasts for many years to come, get in touch with us for regular maintenance services. We can apply a sealer to your surface to protect it from discoloration, staining and corrosion.
