Project Size: 65sqm
Our client for this project presented us with an old exposed concrete driveway. Still in reasonable condition, but was certainly worse for wear and in dire need to a make over.
This project was really cool to me. We do a lot of custom finishing, intricate one off designs that in their own element are really really cool….but I’m a mellow bush kid with simplicity at heart. Our client was after an off set tile pattern with Oatmeal colouring and minor flecking. I love it. Even if the pattern is a nasty bugger to tape down properly.
Given that the existing exposed was fairly washed out, a little extra care and attention was required in preparation…..along with heavily modifying our products to strengthen them to the point they’ll do the job correctly. Approximately 6KG of material weight is added to each 20KG bag application…..which of course….makes my off sider unhappy every time he has to lift it…..Pucker up princess.
After two thick coatings of this nature, I was happy with the overall smoothness of the surface. Keeping in mind, going over exposed aggregate is never a perfect application. My main priority is product strength, then doing everything I can to make things look pretty afterwards.
As you can see from our results in the before / after pic, we’re damn good at making old exposed disappear and in it’s place a brand new, off set tile design that is perfect for the brick home attached to it.
