If your patio has seen better days, inspect the surface to determine the best course of action. Extremely deep cracks in the concrete may signal a more serious structural problem, but you're much more likely to encounter surface-level cosmetic issues. Look for staining, flaking, and crazing (shallow, spider web-like cracks). To resolve any such minor imperfections, reach for a resurfacer like Rapid Set NewCrete. An advanced hydraulic cement, NewCrete spreads easily over the existing concrete surface, self-curing to a smooth, flawless finish. Perhaps the best part? You can host a BBQ on your like-new patio the same day you apply NewCrete. It's ready for foot traffic in only two to three hours!
