If you’ve done any amount of research in the idea of concrete for your driveway, garage or inside use, you may have come across something called “spraycrete”. Understanding what it is, as well as its pros and cons, will help you to decide whether this is something that you wanter your use or not.
What is Spraycrete?
A thoroughly modern invention — as the name may suggest — this is the process of how concrete is used when you are resurfacing your driveway, flooring or other concrete surface. Normally, there is a carefully designed mix that is spread out over your surface of choice and it needs to cure. It’s thick and hard to manage. Spraycrete, on the other hand, is a re-coating mixture that is pumped and held under pressure into a special nozzle so that you can essentially pour it into the place that you want similar to a spray can of paint. It allows for more precise and easier spreading of concrete which can be helpful for those who are looking to resurface their existing driveways and other surfaces with a solid and fast-curing layer of concrete.
Pros of Spraycrete
- Plenty of customization: You can choose all sorts of colours and patterns so that your space is as creative as you want it to be. Great for those that like flair.
- Great for personal and commercial use: This is going to be a great resurfacing option for either personal and commercial use. It is deigned to be affordable and great for inside and outside use however it’s needed. It looks great and is safe for any and every use.
- Helps improve the lifespan and durability of the surface: Whatever surface you use this on, it’ll improves its look but also its durability and overall lifespan so that you can enjoy it more and for longer! Talk about value for money.
- It’s cost-effective: Between its smaller overall price tag and also the fact that it adds more life and durability to the concrete you’ve poured already, spraycrete is actually very friendly for your budget. For those that are looking to protect their bottom line short-term and long-term, spraycrete may be just the thing for you.
Cons of Spraycrete
- Intended to resurface not create the base concrete lot: Spraycrete is intended as cover similar to when you are resurfacing your driveway. It cannot be used in place of actual concrete slab unless there is an existing one below it.
- Won’t help with large cracks or beaten up concrete: There is only so much that concrete resurfacing can do as far as repair and protection. If you have large pot holes or deep cracks, it’s possible that it may need more help than a simple resurfacing.
The bottom line is that even though spraycrete has its shortcomings, its pros are definitely something to consider when you are looking for something that is going to add a little extra lifespan to your surface and make it look like it is brand new all over again.
