It is a well-known fact that concrete is a durable material but it is also not a secret that it still can get damaged either through sudden impact or from the slow but harsh damage caused by weather. Another cause can be improper subgrade preparation, which is a requirement in all concrete slab installations in the city of Austin, Texas. While a new concrete installation will eliminate the damage altogether, it is an expensive and time-consuming option. If the damage is something that can be managed or remedied, a concrete repair is a lot more practical.
Economical Concrete Repair Products
Concrete can go through many different kinds of damage. One type of repair may not be appropriate for certain types of damage. This is why there are many different solutions available in order to properly address the specific issue that a concrete floor has. Repairing concrete can become expensive and a waste of time if the fix applied is not the right match. Here are the top economical ways to repair concrete:
Stamped Concrete Overlay – This involves the application of a concrete overlay which is then imprinted with a pattern or design. This is an ideal concrete driveway repair option because of its ability to restore old concrete and mask minor cracks.
Stained Concrete – Concrete is a porous material so it is prone to ugly stains from spilt grease, paint, and other liquids. Applying a concrete stain is effective in covering any stain or discoloration on concrete flooring.
Acrylic Cement Coating – Ideal for concrete pool deck repair in Austin, TX, this is a great replacement for concrete slabs because it effectively reflects the heat of the sun, instead of absorb it like most pool deck materials do. The result is a textured surface that remains cool despite its constant exposure to the heat of the sun.
Epoxy Flooring – Garage flooring is probably the type of floor that get the most damage because of the abuse it is exposed to. Epoxy is a durable coating that can fill in crack gaps, strengthen concrete slab surfaces, and make it resistant to impact and stains.
Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating – An alternative to epoxy, this coating comes with a quick dry feature making it an ideal solution for those looking for an urgent solution. Although it comes with a more expensive concrete repair cost compared to the solutions mentioned above, it is the most durable of them all.

Austin Concrete Artisans were a pleasure to work with. From the beginning of the process (project review, bid estimate, contract) to the final step (sealing my new porch and walkway), the team was courteous, professional, accommodating and thorough. Other than the weather prolonging the process, everything happened in order, as stated and without problems. I love my new walkway/porch and would recommend MCA to everyone!
