Concrete Overlays


I thought I would just get others perspective on concrete overlays. Products are evolving and old surfaces are getting older. Anyone doing exterior salt or freeze repair on stairs and landings.

I had a property management company interested in similar repair work, but they also wanted a warranty. In my case i walked due to the heavy use of salt/ ice melt

Ardex works well for repairs though.

Thanks, have you done repairs on spalling broom or stair treads with Ardex finishes?

Re: Concrete Overlays


Yep, we've been rained on and saved projects with ardex. Just make sure you prep the area really good and use a bonding agent . I believe ardex has it mixed in with it, but we always add some with water and brush it in to the area being patched.

Re: Concrete Overlays


I do it quite a bit here. We have over a hundred degree temp swings...

Ardex is ok but other products leave them in the shade...js

Concrete Solutions and Concrete Earth have what you need.

Re: Concrete Overlays


I repaired the cracks and used 3 lifts to achieve texture and sealed.

The look is bringing 110 year old concrete to life again using our system Bud. (We make our own stencils custom to what they want.) More pics on our Facebook page to help ya...
