CONCRETE RESURFACE, RESEAL, AND REPAIR
Bend, Redmond, Powel Butte and Sisters, Oregon
All concrete in Central Oregon should be sealed. Concrete is porous and needs protection from moisture penetration and the freeze-thaw cycle. We highly recommend sealing all concrete every 2-4 years.
Cracks in your concrete are unsightly for sure, but they can also be causing bigger problems as water fills them up and then freezes. As it freezes it expands and makes the crack even wider or causes additional cracking.
Ideally, a concrete driveway will last the life of your home. But there are conditions that can shorten its lifespan and result in unsightly cracking, discoloration, settlement or spalling. The number one reason concrete doesn't last is that it is rarely properly sealed. All concrete, in any climate, should be sealed every 2-4 years. In Central Oregon, this is even more necessary as our freeze-thaw cycle and harsh winters will eventually destroy even the best slabs. Other typical causes of concrete driveway distress include an improperly compacted subgrade, the use of an inadequate concrete mix, exposure to severe weather conditions, or (the number one culprit) use of Ice Melt and salts. Rather than ripping out the concrete and starting over, Superior Concrete Restorations can save you thousands of dollars by repairing it.
