Project Size: 97sqm
Ok, so maybe I struggled a little bit with naming this creation, but a little help from a peer had a perfect explanation for the colour splash we applied here.
Our client contacted us through our web advertising on Google here, and after turning up on time (as always), and having a price professionally written and returned to him the same day (as usual), he quickly hired our services to complete his resurfacing work.
Initially, in talking to our client about colours here, I simply gave them a little push in the direction of what I thought best worked with their houses colour scheme, which at first, did not have the “Pale Eucalyptus” colour for the border, but rather “Fossil”, which is a bit more of a brown tone. Our client here made the final executive decision to go with the Pale Eucalyptus, which had us a little worried contrasting against the “Ocean Sand” main colour. It really wasn’t up until everything was sealed at the end, that the true colours came through and everything worked exceptionally well.
The rear patio on this house had been poured by one of our clients neighbours, and finished ready for either tiling or resurfacing. The front driveway was in great condition, but both just needed a heavy acid and pressure wash prior to priming and applying our resurfacing products.
We went with 12mm line tape for the border out the front and a border width of 140mm, whilst out the back, due to the smaller scale of the patio, I decided on 8mm line tape with a 100mm border, so as to not take away any area on appearance.
With border projects, typically we will complete the border first, then fully tape it off so no other spray gets onto it. I like my borders being free of flecking and of a bulk appearance.
So after completing the borders and taping them off, the main coatings were applied to the patio and driveway concrete, finishing the final layers off with a larger nozzle to make sure the texturing is of my liking.
Finally as always, a couple of blending flecks through the main areas and a full double coat of Hi Build Acrylic Sealer.
I love seeing transformations on older concrete with our resurfacing techniques, gives a great deal of pride in the work we have just completed.
Thanks as always to our clients here, it was a pleasure and I wish you all the best for your future.
