How its done?
Step 1 – Preparation
Preparation is key. We pressure wash the concrete with a 3,500 PSI pressure washer.
Grind to remove paint or other adhesive on the floor. Our objective is not simply to clean the concrete but to also remove any loose concrete that simple rinsing will not
achieve. It is not uncommon for it to take 4-5 hours to pressure wash a 100 SQM driveway.
Step 2 – Mask Up
Before we start spraying we mask everything around it. Our masking will ensure every thing is well protected from over spray. We take your property very seriously. For us its not uncommon to take 3-5 hours to mask up some jobs.
Step 3 – Spray On
Depending on your choice of colour. Our special resurfacing cement is mixed with water and the choice of your colour oxide/tint. Once mixed its put in a hopper gun and being sprayed onto the floor. Once the first coat is dried a second is applied for textured antislip look.
Step 4 – Sealer
This is where the magic happens. We only use the highest quality commercial grade clear sealer which will last for a very long time.
