Getting Ready for Halloween: To Repair or Replace Concrete?

Getting Ready for Halloween: To Repair or Replace Concrete?

The time to repair or replace your concrete is now, before trick-or-treaters appear!

Halloween is quickly approaching, which means packs of small children roaming about your property trick-or-treating in their scariest and silliest costumes. Before you start purchasing candy and preparing for the event, consider the state of your property’s parking lot or sidewalks. Does your concrete have potholes, cracks, or other damage on the surface? The time to repair or replace your concrete is now, before trick-or-treaters appear!

Can You Fix It?

First, consider whether or not you could restore the structural integrity of the concrete patch. Is the concrete actually deteriorated, or is it a minor piece of damage that needs to be rectified? If there is spalling on the concrete, for example, it’s a sign that the aggregate is exposed and will need to be replaced. If the concrete damage was caused by a faulty installation, that will also require a total replacement. However, if the surface is simply chipped or weathered, repair might be the perfect option for you.

How Bad Is It?

To provide your trick-or-treaters with the safest and smoothest concrete surface possible, you should consider how severe the damage is. As a general rule of thumb, if the concrete repair would need more than two inches’ worth of material, a replacement is a better investment than a repair. If it requires less, you can work with Tristate Paving to restore your existing concrete to new condition. Many new products are designed to quickly and seamlessly repair concrete, so you will have plenty of options to choose from.

Determine the Cause

Finally, when determining whether or not you should repair or replace your concrete, you should consider what the cause of the deterioration is. Installation is a very common culprit that can be solved by working with a professional concrete installation company. If your concrete was not properly installed, the only way to fix it will be replacing it entirely.
