How long does concrete driveway resurfacing last?
Monday, October 11, 2021
You can expect a resurfaced driveway finish to last 8 to 15 years, with an average of 12 years. Careful surface prep before applying the resurfacing material is the key to a long-lasting finish. Keeping the surface clean to avoid abrasion from walking on it and resealing about every 4 years also helps to extend the life. Further deterioration of the concrete under the finish and settlement of the slab itself will shorten the lifespan.
