We understand the unforgiving effects that exposure to extreme weather conditions can have over time on your driveway – especially in Bend and Central Oregon. This damage can be accelerated by consistent use of deicing salts throughout winter as well as the constant rotation of the freeze-thaw cycles that accompany the changing Oregon seasons. And although concrete driveways can last for decades, eventually, you will get cracks, discoloration, pits, or sunk areas. Instead of ripping out the old driveway, often the best solution is to resurface it with a concrete overlay which can add another 10+ years of life.
STEP 1 – Clean Concrete: first we’ll pressure wash the concrete to dirt, oil, grime, and debris from the existing concrete surface.
STEP 2 – Level and Patch Spalling: next we will raise any sunken parts of the concrete and patch the spalling (the pits in the concrete caused by mixing to much water with the concrete upon pouring).
STEP 3 – Apply Resurfacing Material: next we will apply the resurfacing material(s)
STEP 4 – Stamp or Brush: we will stamp or brush the concrete, add any coloring and wait for drying.
STEP 5 – Seal: if necessary (if we’ve colored the concrete) we will seal the concrete.
Depending on the patterns and coloring, it typically costs between $4-$8 a square foot to resurface your driveway. On the other hand, pouring a new concrete driveway can range from $8-$20 a square foot (again depending on patterns, coloring, and excavation).
