Concrete Driveway Resurfacing Robina

Project Description

Location: Robina, Queensland
Project Size: 220sqm

Starting off with an old, worn out exposed aggregate base, our client was wishing for our modern style of finishing of covacrete resurfacing. After spending a few days cleaning and repairing the surface, we then proceeded to double base coat the concrete with our modified covacrete, creating a smooth surface to work upon. Sharply angled taped lines were then placed throughout and a double main coating of Ash Grey was sprayed over the surface. For our swirl and patching decorations, we used Light Bluestone colouring to really emphasise the highlights, then finished off with a Bluegum fleck throughout just to add some depth.

This one was back breaking. With the builder finished and handover taken place, we came in to commence work on this project. With small sides which required new concrete pathways, they had been left extremely low and in need of 20m.cubic of 20mm road base to be hand shoveled and barrowed up the sides. After this was complete, we formed in the intricate garden beds, allowed for our falls and began installation of the new concrete. Plain grey concrete was poured up the side paths and rear water tank slab, then we finished off with Dalmation 50% aggregate from Hytec for the driveway.

A new house build saw it’s completion ending with a new driveway to be installed. A relatively flat site, not a lot of machine work was required, so we went about our business preparing the site for new concrete. Formwork and steel requirements installed, we placed the side pathway and carport during the first pour due to access issues with the trucks, then finished off the remainder in Dalmation 80% aggregate and a good acid cleaning.

After installing a new concrete carport section for our client, we got onto work on the existing driveway, preparing it for it’s new surface. Existing was a few layers of old paint which previous owners thought was a good idea. After a couple of days of floor grinding and hand grinding, we had the surface fully stripped back to bare concrete and ready for our covacrete coatings. We decided upon a contemporary design, with 100mm border and 2/3 inserts in a tile pattern Chocolate Brown colour, then we sprayed the main area with Latte with off setting flecks of cream.

Plain Concrete Driveway Molendinar

Project Description

Location: Molendinar, Queensland
Project Size: 375sqm

After years of entering their property on an old dirt track, our client finally decided it was time to upgrade to concrete. Not a great deal of machine work was required on this project, so after a quick scrape, the form work was put in place and all the steel cut so as to be able to place it during concrete pour as the truck exited each section. Reversing the trucks down over this 125m long driveway was a bit tricky, but we managed and with the steel being placed whilst moving down, we had the concrete finished off by trowel machine and a broom.

Covacrete Resurfacing Driveway Logan

Project Description

Location: Logan, Queensland
Project Size: 390sqm

Existing on this premises was an old driveway consisting of exposed aggregate section and plain grey concrete sections. We began this project with a full heavy acid clean and pressure wash, then continued on with the minimal repair work required. The existing exposed aggregate sections were double base coated with modified covacrete, then finally the remaining plain concrete was single base coated with standard covacrete. Our client was only after a basic effect for the final look, so without any patterning, we completed 2 coats of Salmon coloured covacrete, finishing it off with off setting flecks and two coats of high grade acrylic sealer.

Our client was in the process of a renovation, with the driveway being the last item on the check list. Machinery was brought into site to demolish and remove the existing driveway, which was beyond repair.

The new concrete was River Red from Hymix Australia and was placed over two pours, with an acid clean after the concrete had set.
