Concrete Need A New Look? 3 Ways To Restore And Protect It

If you're in the process of adding new landscaping to your home, this might be the perfect time to give a new look to your old concrete. Pitted, chipped and damaged concrete can make your home look old and worn-down.

You don't have to go to the expense of replacing the concrete. There are several methods to repair and restore the look of your existing concrete. Here are three unique ways to change the appearance of the concrete around your home.


Concrete is strong and durable but it can still wear out over time. As it ages, it can develop cracks, chips and other blemishes. That damage can undermine the stability of your concrete. Resurfacing will repair the damage and restore the stability.

A concrete contractor can resurface damaged concrete by applying a layer of concrete polymer over the existing surface. Once the polymer dries, it will protect your concrete and prevent future damage. Here are some of the reasons you should choose resurfacing over replacement.

  • Costs less

  • Takes less time

  • Resists salt deposits (efflorescence)

Acid Stains

If your concrete is stained from years of wear and tear, you may just want to change its appearance. Professional acid staining is an easy way give your old concrete a new look. When you go with acid stains for your concrete, you have the opportunity to choose the color and designs.

Acid staining is particularly beneficial if your concrete is in good condition – doesn't have any visible chips or cracks. If you're looking for a way to permanently change the appearance of your concrete, you should consider acid staining. It won't wear out and the colors will never fade.

Patio Tiles

If you've just poured a new concrete patio or you've had your old concrete resurfaced, you're going to want to protect it from future damage. Interlocking patio tiles are the perfect way to protect your concrete.

Patio tiles come in individual pieces that are installed directly over the existing concrete.  Patio tiles come in a variety of materials including heavy-duty foam, and wood. In just a matter of hours your concrete can be thoroughly protected, and have a whole new look.

When it's time to take care of the concrete in your yard, you have a few options to choose from. Whether your existing concrete is damaged or you need to protect your new concrete, these options will help you protect your investment.
