Concrete Driveway Resurfacing In Melbourne

You might think that the cost of resurfacing your concrete driveway is unnecessary. However, consider the long-term advantages. A professionally resurfaced driveway not only improves the appeal of your home, but it can also boost its overall value.

But how do you select the best service provider from the myriad options available? Our service stands out for its commitment to quality, competitive pricing, and promptness. Just imagine how a revamped concrete driveway could change the appearance of your property.

Signs Your Driveway Needs Resurfacing

Here are the common signs to look out for that could indicate your driveway needs resurfacing.


If you notice cracks in your concrete driveway, it’s typically a call for professional resurfacing. This service not only helps prevent additional damage but also eliminates the existing cracks. We use specialised repair techniques to tackle these cracks, and this helps avoid further deterioration. Prior to resurfacing, we prioritise surface preparation to ensure the new layer adheres properly, minimising the chance of future cracks.


Potholes are a clear indicator that your driveway is in desperate need of resurfacing. Potholes signify serious damage and aren’t only unsightly, but they can also pose safety risks. However, with the appropriate repair methods, we can help restore the smoothness and integrity of your driveway.

Surface Wear

Cracks, holes, and flaking on your driveway aren’t just unsightly, they’re signs of surface damage that need to be addressed. Proper surface preparation is crucial before we apply any resurfacing materials. This guarantees a smooth finish and helps ensure your driveway lasts for years.

Drainage Issues

If you’re noticing issues like water pooling on your driveway after a rainstorm, or erosion along the edges, it’s a clear sign that your driveway might need resurfacing. These signs point to potential water damage that could be jeopardising the strength of your concrete.

One crucial step in the resurfacing process is surface leveling. This helps control erosion and ensures that water is properly diverted away from your driveway. This prevents the formation of cracks and other damage.


When your driveway starts showing signs of wear and tear, such as cracks, holes, flaking, sinking, or discoloration, it may be time for a resurfacing. To ensure the effectiveness of the resurfacing process, proper surface preparation is critical.

Uneven Surface

Don’t underestimate the significance of a smooth and even driveway. Visible signs of wear such as cracks, sinking patches, and uneven levels suggest it might be time for a resurfacing job.

An irregular surface can cause poor water drainage, leading to damaging pools of water. But it’s not just about looks—safety is crucial. Uneven driveways can be serious hazards, increasing the risk of trips and falls or damage to your vehicle.


Sinking is a big warning sign that your driveway needs resurfacing. This issue often arises from incorrect installation or soil erosion. You can spot this issue if you see uneven surfaces, water pooling, or gaps between the slabs. All of these are clear signs of a sinking driveway.

When Can a Driveway Be Resurfaced Vs Replaced?

If your driveway is structurally solid with only minor surface damage, resurfacing is a budget-friendly option. 

It’s perfect for repairing small cracks and blemishes, giving your driveway a new, appealing look. Plus, it saves you from the high expenses and long duration involved in a full replacement. Importantly, resurfacing requires less maintenance and can enhance the lifespan of your driveway.

However, if your driveway suffers from deep cracks or major structural problems, you might need a complete replacement. Remember, the choice between resurfacing and replacing your driveway boils down to its current state, your budget, and your expected result. Make your decision wisely!

FAQ About Concrete Driveway Resurfacing

A properly resurfaced concrete driveway in Melbourne can last anywhere from 8 to 15 years, depending on factors like the quality of materials used, the professionalism of the installation, and ongoing maintenance.

Yes, resurfacing is generally more cost-effective than completely removing and replacing a concrete driveway. It provides a way to extend the life of your driveway without the higher costs associated with a full replacement.

Most concrete driveways can be resurfaced as long as the underlying structure is sound. However, driveways with severe structural issues, such as major cracking, heaving, or subsidence, may require more extensive repair or replacement.

Ideal conditions include dry weather and moderate temperatures. Extreme heat, cold, or moisture can affect the curing process of the resurfacing materials. It’s best to check the weather forecast and plan the resurfacing during a period of stable, mild weather.

The process typically takes 1-3 days, depending on the size of the driveway and the complexity of the job. Additional time is needed for the resurfacing material to cure before the driveway can be used again.

Maintenance may include regular cleaning, resealing every few years, and prompt repair of any small cracks or damage to prevent water infiltration and further deterioration.

Usually, resurfacing a driveway doesn’t require a permit as it’s considered maintenance work. However, it’s always a good idea to check with your local council to ensure compliance with any specific regulations or guidelines. If you are unsure, contact us and we’ll assist you.

I can highly recommend Smooth Concrete, and, in particular Luke who owns the business. Our customer ( one of Australia's top 5 commercial property owners) had very strict rules and documentation regarding access to the site plus a very limited window of opportunity during each week to get the job completed. In trying to meet the customer's requirements the job had to be postponed several times (with only a day's notice on occasion) but Luke was tremendous in being able to accomodate all these last minute changes. He was totally professional in the way he re arranged things to suit our customer. When we finally got everything lined up to start the job the weather became threat however Luke and his team were able to get the job done way quicker than expected thus avoiding any weather issues. Also, on the day Luke's team found an issue with some broken kerb and called immediately suggesting we replace it. We got great feedback from that initiative. In addition the customer was extremely pleased with the quality of the job and the way in which the Smooth Concrete team conducted themselves. Bob Dusting Proprietor Viscount Property Services

As an architect I am always looking not for great tradespeople but outstanding ones and Smooth Concrete did not disappoint. We had a very difficult project that required enormous coordination and a finish no less than excellent and Smooth Concrete delivered. Luke was a pleasure to deal with and no request was too difficult. Not only was i impressed but the client was overwhelmed. Cant wait to work with the team again and to explore all of the other skills and services they can provide. I would highly recommend them for any project requiring a high quality finish.

I highly recommend Smooth Concrete. Luke was very quick to contact me after my online enquiry to have old concrete removed from my backyard and new concrete for an outdoor entertaining area. He was very easy to discuss this with to plan it out and make suggestions that would help me save on the overall cost. Luke and his team were very efficient and kept the place clean. They did a great job!! Very happy. Thank you.

STUNNING OUTCOME Luke and his Smooth Concrete team did an amazing job at our house. We had a badly lifting patio that required levelling. Luke and I discussed the plan I had in mind and he confidently provided feedback which made me comfortable in proceeding with the project. Luke was friendly and offered a creative solution to our problem. Luke’s team then efficiently and professionally completed the required work. What made this such a stunning job was Luke mentoring and providing guidance to his team. This detail alone lifted the project from ‘just a job to be done’ to ‘a complete and professional product.’ A team that cares about their work seems rare in this day and age but Luke took the time to pass on his knowledge. Top marks. A tremendous result that far exceeded our expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Luke and his team for any concreting work that needs to be carried out
Smooth Concrete were awesome ! Not only were they professional, hardworking and thorough, they were also friendly. Luke explained the process of the job very clearly to us and went above and beyond to meet our expectations. Luke also gave us a suggestion to add glow stone which we did and looks awesome at night. We would recommend them for any job as they were reliable and generous with time and skill. Thanks again Smooth Concrete
