How much does it cost to resurface concrete?

When budgeting for residential or commercial projects, homeowners and commercial property owners alike have the same chief question: How much does concrete resurfacing cost? Although an immediate answer would be nice, the honest answer is: it depends. Resurfacing costs can range from $3 to $25 per square foot. It requires a look into the conditions of your project to get an accurate estimate.

Variables that affect resurfacing costs

There are several aspects of a project that can affect the final cost. Here are the main factors to consider:

  • Size of the area being resurfaced. The size of your project determines how much product we’ll need to use and how long it’ll take to complete the project.
  • Condition of the existing surface. If your existing concrete surface is in need of repair, that adds onto the cost of the project. Part of our installation process includes ensuring that the surface is prepared properly so that the coating adheres to it appropriately—and that includes resolving any damaged spots. Keep in mind that we will never suggest repairing and resurfacing a surface that is severely damaged and might fail under the new coatings.
  • The products used. Each product has a different price point.
  • Your design choices. The type of design you choose for your project will impact the cost. For example, if you choose to install a monotone floor, it will cost less than a floor with multiple colors and intricate patterns. We’re willing to work with our customers to estimate project cost based on several different options so you can see choose the option that falls within your budget.

Is it better to tear out concrete or have it resurfaced?

Concrete resurfacing is superior to demolition because you don’t have to pay for resources required to rip out the concrete and dump the torn-up materials. Aside from cost, it’s also more eco-friendly and efficient to resurface. For commercial property owners, efficiency is key. The less amount of time your site looks and feels like a construction zone, the better.

Rest assured that at SUDEK of Austin, we will never resurface concrete that isn’t viable. We want every surface we work on to be structurally sound, so we do not apply coatings to failing concrete surfaces.

Is it expensive to resurface damaged concrete?

It does cost more to resurface damaged concrete than it costs to resurface concrete in perfect condition. However, it is much less expensive to resurface damaged concrete than it is to tear out your existing concrete and start from scratch.

Spot repairs versus resurfacing

Another question that commonly comes up is whether it’s best to just do spot repairs instead of resurfacing an entire area. While the answer depends on how much damage is present, in many cases it’s best to resurface.

We are experts in concrete repair, but even for experienced contractors, it is often difficult to color match exactly to the existing surface, which sometimes makes the repaired spots stand out like a sore thumb.

Here’s a pool deck we resurfaced in San Marcos, TX, that needed repair. Originally the owners just wanted to do spot repairs, but after our team did an analysis and provided estimates, the client realized that it would look better and best less expensive to resurface the entire pool deck.

What customers say about our prices

Here's what our past clients had to say about how we price resurfacing work:

  • We had all the options explained, got advice on what worked well and what other clients had not been crazy about, and had an estimate delivered that was reasonable. (Bonnie C.)
  • They did the work as promised, the estimate was accurate, the workers were polite and helpful. (Frank G.)
  • We contacted Sundek after getting two bids from contractors to stain concrete on a patio remodel. Kevin was on time for our appointment and had everything he needed to provide a bid on the spot. He answered questions, made some suggestions and presented us with 3 alternative bids during our first appointment. (Art L.)
