Your driveway is the entryway to your home, and it plays a major role in determining your home’s curb appeal. If your driveway is old and full of cracks, it can detract from your home’s aesthetics. Fortunately, updating your old driveway is fairly simple – you can do it with a concrete resurfacing job from a Sundek contractor.

Sundek Products for Concrete Resurfacing

If you are thinking about having your driveway updated, you can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by going with concrete resurfacing. Resurfacing your existing concrete driveway will give you the new, modern look you want without having to dig up the old slab. Sundek offers a wide variety of decorative concrete products, including stamps and stains, which will allow you to customize your concrete driveway in a way that complements your home’s unique style and décor.

One of the simplest options that Sundek has to offer is the Classic Texture acrylic spray overlay. This option for concrete resurfacing is incredibly versatile because you can control the degree of texture. This surface offers nonslip safety, and its nonporous finish is resistant to oils, dirt, and chemicals, as well. If you want something that looks a little more elegant, try the old world appeal of the Tuscan hand-crafted overlay. This option can be combined with hand-troweling and stamping techniques to mimic the look of natural stone and other premium materials. You can also combine it with any of Sundek’s coloring techniques to create a unique look.

Whether you are resurfacing a residential or commercial driveway, you want to make sure that the concrete is going to last. Protect your new concrete surface with a clear finish coat to enhance its durability and to reduce your maintenance requirements. The SunColor acrylic water-based finish coat is a great option. It can be applied over any concrete surface and combined with aggregates to create a slip-resistant texture. The SunSand system is another great option, offering excellent protection against weather, salts, and environmental pollutants. It is also easy to maintain and simple to customize.

Uses and Benefits of Thin Mil Epoxy Flooring

Thin mil epoxy flooring is exactly what it sounds like – a thin layer of epoxy applied to the floor in your home or business. Epoxy is one of the most durable materials out there (even stronger than concrete), which makes it incredibly popular for use in commercial and industrial applications. Thin mil epoxy flooring, like Sundek’s SunEpoxy system, offers unmatched adhesion and abrasion resistance, plus it can stand up to heavy foot and vehicle traffic. This type of flooring works great for garage floors and warehouses as well as automotive repair facilities and light manufacturing plants.

Thin mil epoxy floors can be resistant to both abrasion and impact as well as chemicals, oils, fats, and more. Not only are thin mil epoxy floors highly durable, but they offer a wide variety of options for customization. The SunEpoxy system can be combined with any of Sundek’s color systems, including SunFlek colored quartz aggregate and SunChip acrylic flakes, to create either a solid or multicolored appearance. You can also finish the flooring with a clear sealer to add gloss and an extra layer of protection.

No matter where you are planning to have thin mil epoxy flooring installed, you want to be sure that the job gets done correctly the first time around. Rather than trying to do the job yourself and risk messing something up, hire a licensed Sundek contractor to do the work and rest easy knowing that it will be done properly.
