How Often Should Tennis Courts Be Resurfaced?

Tennis Court Repairs

As a Tennis Court Repairs, you’ll likely need to have your court resurfaced or repaired at least once every seven years. However, the frequency with which your tennis court needs to be resurfaced will depend on its surface type and characteristics as well as environmental factors like poor drainage and extreme weather changes in your area.

Tennis Court Crack Repairs

The most obvious sign that a tennis court is in need of resurfacing is the appearance of cracks that continue to grow over time. Cracks are often a symptom of other more serious problems below the surface so it is important to address them as soon as they occur.

When it comes to repairing cracks in your tennis court, there are many different methods to choose from. Acrylic crack fillers provide a temporary solution to smaller cracks, while other higher-cost options such as specialty membrane systems or fiberglass reinforcement can repair larger cracks with long-term durability. At ProCorM, we use a product called ARMOR Crack Repair System which spreads the stress of cracks across an expansive area of expandable fabric instead of simply laying down a coating or patch.

Keeping up with small cracks and divot repairs as they appear will help reduce the overall costs of resurfacing down the road. It is also recommended that you use soft nylon or hair-type brooms for cleaning your court so that the hard bristles do not damage the surface coatings.

When it is time to resurface your court, hiring a professional business for the job will ensure that the results last for a long period of time. A professional will be able to perform proper base prep work, which is the most critical part of the resurfacing process. Any new coatings installed over an improperly prepared base will delaminate prematurely and negatively impact both playability and court longevity.
