Go take a look! As displayed in the video, this unsightly porch is stained and pitting, View video of resurface concrete work and let me show you how I saved this customer thousands of dollars by resurfacing her porch instead of excavating and replacing it with new concrete In this video I shared the materials used to complete his project. The most important step to resurfacing concrete is prepping the job. My goal is to make this porch look like new and to extend the life of this resurfacing job. Removing all loose material is critical at allowing the resurfacing material to adhere to the surface. A strong bond between the surface and the material is crucial at prolonging the life of this job. Before applying the resurfacing material, I like to apply an concrete bonding adhesive to guarantee and strong bond between the surface and the resurfacing material. I use a rough napped roller to roll on the adhesive to allow an evenly applied coat I apply this glue at full strength. Remember what I said earlier, my goal is to extend the life of this resurface job. A premature peeling of this new surface is a failed job. So its important to follow all the right steps and to not take short cuts. Short cuts like adding water to the glue or not removing flaking concrete. Its important to fill all the deep pocketed areas first. If not filled, the pockets will show on the final coat. Again, my goal is to make this pad look like a fully replaced concrete job but at a fraction of the cost of total replacement. Pitted and pocketed areas is a dead give away that this job was resurfaced. And besides it do not look professional. You can pre-purchase a resurfacing mix but I like to design my own mixes. It gives me the flexibility to make adjustments to the conditions of a particular job. I apply a rich tacky mix 1st and its 1 part play sand to 1 part Portland cement to 1 part glue. All of these products can be purchased from Lowes https://www.lowes.com/ or Home Depot http://www.homedepot.com/ Ok listen closely this is very important; the thicker the material is applied the higher the chance it will crack. For best results, no more than a 16th of an inch of resurfacing material should be applied. Therefore the mix should have a high slump and flow freely. After watching the video, click the yellow mixer and subscribe so I can demonstrate to you how to resurface other concrete surfaces like steps, patios basement floors and walls. I will teach you the technique so that you can either make thousands or save thousands. The riser must not be rushed and overlooked as unimportant, its what everyone see first, therefore, to give it that new concrete look it must have evenly appied glue and cement finish. It must look flat, not lumpy! On day 2 the first coat has dried and now and we apply the final coat. The cement mix ratio has been adjusted, we are now using 2 parts play sand to 1 part Portland cement and ½ part glue. This mix design is less tacky because of it has less of the acrylic glue and Portland cement however it has a more cementitious texture and color which is more fitting for a final coat. Its important to be generous with applying the glue. And on the surface, the glue should always be ahead of the cement. Never allow the glue to completely dry If so then the glue will not work. Ideally the glue should dry to a tacky touch. An even stroked broom finish is important for texture and traction it also helps to mirror the look of new concrete. The clear sealer prevents dirt and grime from penetrating into the surface. It also repels liquids such as oil or salt water. A clear coat sealer is the final step. It acts as a protective shield for the finish. It reinforces the durability of the top surfacing.
