Is Concrete Resurfacing Worth It

Is Concrete Resurfacing Worth It

Typically, homeowners expect that concrete will last them a long time. However, many find the concrete in their home wearing down or cracking within years. Damaged concrete can negatively affect a home’s aesthetic and drive down value.

Most people believe they need to completely tear out and replace the concrete, though this is unnecessary. If the concrete does not have substantial damage, resurfacing can be applied. Here at EMC Concrete Coatings, we can find a solution for your needs.

Before you decide on resurfacing, you are probably asking: is it worth it?

Is Concrete Resurfacing Worth It?

It is Economical

Firstly, you are likely wondering about what concrete resurfacing will cost you. In comparison to replacing your concrete, resurfacing is a cost-efficient option. Also, it is cheaper than many other concrete repair solutions.

As the replacement of concrete costs significant time and money, you will save both with resurfacing. The easy application and cheaper materials allow resurfacing to renew your concrete at a fraction of the replacement cost.

In addition to its cost-effectiveness, concrete resurfacing has many different styles.

There is a Wide Variety of Options

With concrete resurfacing, you will have many designs and styles to consider for your surface. Would you like a marble floor without actually having to use marble? Well, with concrete resurfacing, you can.

The thin layer applied to the concrete can be stamped or colored, allowing for versatile customization. Including, but not limited to, sandstone, granite, or even brick floor styles. Our customers are blown away by the vast number of options available.

So, if you are looking for a fresh, new design for your concrete, you may want to consider concrete resurfacing. But, there are other benefits to resurfacing.

It Increases the Durability of Your Surface

Though concrete is already a durable surface, resurfacing can provide an extra layer of protection. EMC will provide you with epoxy with many benefits, such as impact and heat resistance.

In addition to the durability benefits, resurfacing will need much less maintenance. So, your surface will be more resistant to minor damage and imperfections with a new coating.

Moreover, the durability of the surface and color with this option makes your home safer and more attractive.

It Increases the Value of Your Home

If you want to increase the value of your home, concrete resurfacing is an option to consider. Unattractive, cracked concrete can drive your home value down and make your home unsafe.

You can make your home safer and even more unique with a resurface. Fixing issues in the home increase its value, but concrete resurfacing can add a custom style that raises the price. For instance, a cheap epoxy flooring can add value purely because of its marble appearance.

It Saves Time and Is Easy to Apply

Finally, perhaps the best part of resurfacing is how easy it is. Resurfacing is self-leveling, meaning there isn’t extensive work involved in applying the material. In contrast, a complete replacement will take a much greater effort.

Resurfacing is quicker, cheaper, and less hassle than a complete replacement. With this in mind, if you think you need concrete resurfacing, you have come to the right place.

What are the benefits of coating my garage or patio floor?

There are a multitude of benefits to coating your concrete surface. Our prep phase will eliminate high spots or surface deficiencies through diamond grinding or shotblasting. In addition, our trained technicians will fill in any cracks, holes, or spalls on your concrete surface prior to any coating being placed. This ensures a smooth and uniform appearance throughout your slab. Concrete is very porous and can make stain removal difficult. With a high-performance coating installed, you will be able to remove otherwise tough stains with a spray of your water hose. And lastly, our floors look amazing! The garage is often overlooked when it comes to renovation/upgrades, but a professionally installed resinous coating will add $$$ to the value of your home.

How long does a typical installation take?
In most cases, our highly trained technicians can wrap up your residential project in as little as 2 days. We do offer a state of the art 1 day system, where you can walk on your new floor the next day, but we do not recommend these rapid cure systems during the summer months. Commercial projects and larger residential projects (1K sq. feet or more) can certainly take more time to complete. As always, our sales team will visit your site to take accurate measurements and offer a realistic timeframe.
Do you offer free on-site quotes?
Yes, we do. EMC Concrete Coatings always prefers to visit you at your project site to take
measurements and go over your coatings/color options. Our quotes are valid for 90 days and there is never any pressure. We are not here to make you feel uncomfortable or pressured. Our process is smooth and easy for everyone involved.
Can you give me a “ball-park” price over the phone?
Yes. However, this is not the way we prefer to quote jobs. Each project is unique and a
“standard 2 car garage” is going to be different for every homebuilder in town. Square footage’s, linear walls, garage aprons, and condition of the slab all play a very important role in providing you with an accurate quote. This simply cannot be done in a matter of seconds via a phone call or messenger.
How much does it cost to install a decorative coating on my garage floor?
A typical 2 car garage coatings installation in the greater San Antonio area will cost between $2’400 and $3’000. Our pricing is based on square footages and other aspects of the project, including the linear footage of any stem walls, aprons, or repair work.

Oversized or multi-car garages, patios, or other areas will result in higher priced estimates.

Do you use epoxy or polyurea for garage coatings?
We use all the above. Resinous coatings do not come in a one size fits all application. The
details and specs of each project will help our trained technicians determine what coating is best for your project. Typically, we use polyurea coatings for our garages and patio installations. However, shop floors and other commercia/residential spaces will call for epoxies, urethanes, or water-based materials. Rest assured, no matter which products we use, they are from reputable coatings manufacturers and TDS sheets are always available to our customers upon
Is this service affordable?
We are not the lowest priced team in town. We are also, certainly not the most expensive outfit on the block. Our pricing is determined by the costs of materials, inflation, demand, labor, and level of service. When choosing EMC Concrete Coatings, you have done yourself a great favor by hiring the best in the business. EMC does run specials throughout the calendar year for discounted floors and we always honor first responders, military, and front-line workers discounts.

Our team is always mindful of our customer’s budget. We are a locally owned and operated
small business, and we know the value of our hard-earned dollars and how much they mean to each one of us. We strive to provide our customers with the best possible pricing throughout the year. EMC honors our warranties, we show up on time, every time, and will go above and beyond to ensure you are 100% satisfied at the end of each project. If we miss the mark, we will rectify it. Simple as that.

Does my new floor come with a warranty?
Yes! We offer an excellent written warranty with all our floor coatings installations. Depending on which option you choose (stain, seal, epoxy/flake, solid color, or polish) the length of time will vary from 5 years to a limited lifetime homeowners’ warranty. We HONOR our warranties.
Who am I hiring if I choose EMC Concrete Coatings?
The best crew in town. From our brand-new trucks, wrapped-trailers, uniformed employees, and state of the art equipment – we are the best. Our technicians are certified and experienced installers. EMC is bonded, commercially insured, and experienced. Multiple professional references are available for commercial projects at any given time and our online reviews speak for themselves when it comes to our residential portfolio. You have made the right choice by calling the team at EMC Concrete Coatings.

Generally, Eric and his sales team will be the person you meet with at your project walk thru. You will then see Eric and his crew upon the day of installation. We never sub out our projects, our employees are in-house guys and Eric is there each step of the way to ensure maximum customer satisfaction!
