HOW MUCH DOES CONCRETE RESURFACING COST?

Resurfacing gives your concrete a new life and is less costly than getting a new slab installed. Hire a skilled concrete professional that knows how to correctly prepare the concrete and has decorative concrete finish experience and had all the equipment to get the project done.

Concrete Resurfacing Cost Considerations:

  • Basic (One color) 

  • Decorative Overlay (Several colors, polished, cut) 

  • Stamped (Stenciled, embeds, epoxy terrazzo, embeds)
     

The cost per square foot differs based on the kind of resurfacing you want, the existing surface condition, and the project size.

Plan your budget wisely if you have a lot of cracks that need to be filled or require mud-jacking to level out the slab.

Smaller projects might be more costly if you’re hiring a professional since a lot of companies come with a flat fee or minimum charge.

DIY Concrete Resurfacing

DIY concrete resurfacing price ranges per square foot. Factors compromise of the amount of material needed for the project and if you’re planning on renting or buying the equipment or tools that are required.

Concrete resurfacing entails more than just spreading the concrete and allowing it to harden. It’s a process that requires accuracy in setting up the worksite and in prepping and applying the concrete. Making the site form too large is a common DIY oversight that leads to the concrete cracking and slumping. One other common oversight is failure to correctly mix the concrete. Poorly made concrete has the potential to crack.

Hiring a Professional Concrete Resurfacing Contractor

More small, residential projects might cost more because it’s not surprising for a company requiring a minimum charge. If you’re not familiar with working with concrete, think about spending slightly more for a professional that is experienced in preparing and resurfacing concrete.
