Although concrete resurfacing is nothing new for homeowners in Southern Mississippi, it has increasingly grown in popularity over the years. Because of that, many people question why. Along with its long and fascinating history, this state has a reputation for its older homes, some well over 100 years. While older homes boast gorgeous and unique features, many have started to show signs of wear and tear.
Also, homes in Southern Mississippi often get passed down from generation to generation. Rather than move, many people prefer to reclaim the home’s original beauty. Even though concrete lasts a long time, like everything else, it begins to deteriorate. Rather than have a new surface poured, people find that concrete resurfacing is a more sensible decision.
For one thing, you now have a full line of decorative overlay systems that transform an existing concrete surface into a personal masterpiece. The overlays not only change the appearance of the surface but also help repair it. Overlays like SunStone, Classic Texture, and SunCanvas are so incredible that with your imagination and creativity, almost anything is achievable.
On top of the existing concrete surface in Southern Mississippi, a professional installer applies the preferred overlay. During the resurfacing process, this expert can create virtually any pattern or design that you want. That means that in addition to a new surface, you have the opportunity to enhance its aesthetics. For both newer and older homes, you can match a design to architectural features, if wanted.
Another reason for the growing popularity of concrete resurfacing in Southern Mississippi is that it leaves no mess. With a new concrete pour, the old concrete gets jackhammered out and then piled up until hauled away. As a result, you get left with an unsightly pile of rubble. Depending on the people who you hire and how quickly they work, the broken concrete could sit outside of your home for days, weeks, or even months. Not only does this make you an unhappy homeowner, it could lead to problems with the neighbors.
In comparison, concrete resurfacing does not involve tearing anything out. Instead, an overlay gets applied directly on top of the existing surface. A professional installer can have the overlay finished within a day or two, including texturing, patterning, coloring, and so on. Once the surface cures, which typically takes about 28 hours, a sealer gets applied. From that point, you can begin enjoying your new driveway, walkway, patio, porch, pool deck, or whatever surface you had changed, knowing it will be there throughout your lifetime.
