    Resurfacing a driveway

    Published on 25 January 2019, Friday, 5:07 AM

    You can save a significant amount of cash by embarking on home renovations yourself. While you will need to consult a professional for more expert jobs like plumbing and electricity work, there are a number of things you can do on your own.

    Perhaps you're looking at ways to boost the value of your property, or maybe it has been a niggling problem for some time, but resurfacing your concrete driveway can be an achievable task for most.

    If there are cracks in the driveway, it is important that you get onto the problem before it worsens - water can seep in and enlarge the problem.

    Before resurfacing the driveway, it is important to do some concrete cleaning - using a high pressure hose from your local Kennards Hire will assist in removing debris and grease from the surface and in between cracks.

    Once you have filled the cracks with a filler or concrete, you may need to use a concrete mower or planer to create a smooth surface.

    Applying a resurfacer will finish the job - providing a professional result, leaving your driveway looking like new!
