First, we use a diamond grinder with a V-blade to open up and abrade both sides of the crack. By doing this, we gain additional surface area for better product adhesion. Next, we mix our mender material and overfill the crack. When the material is fully cured (typically only seven to ten minutes!) we grind the overfilled material flush with the concrete surface. This leaves the floor smooth and level.

broadcasting flake chips

When the floor is coated completely, we mix our chips (sometimes called flakes) in a large container to insure an even blend of colors. We then broadcast the chips into the wet coating by hand, covering the whole floor with the chips. By using large quantities of chips, we ensure that the floor is completely covered, leaving it uniform in color and texture. The cure time of our basecoat is typically 45-60 minutes, depending on outside temperatures.

spalling

We check to make sure that all the areas are level with the floor and refill any uneven areas. We believe that it is best to leave all control joints open to allow for the movement of the concrete and relieve the stress. If requested, control joints can certainly be filled for aesthetic value. The repair process is followed by vacuuming the floor and using a leaf blower to flush out any remaining debris. The surface is now ready for coating.

For all of our applications (residential, commercial, outdoor) the installation process always starts with a full evaluation of your existing concrete surface. We investigate structural condition, harness and moisture content. Then we use this analysis to determine how we approach the most important step — concrete preparation.
