The first step is to prepare the concrete by removing any existing coating. You can rent this floor maintainer at almost any tool. Rental location. This one is available at Home Depot for $ 34 for 4 hours. If you are removing a coating, then get a coating removal attachment for bare concrete use. The concrete prep tool for a plywood sub floor uses 36 grit sandpaper. The next step is to prime the floor. Unless your floor has a moisture problem, then don't prime the floor.
They used Everlast outdoor, tough, weatherproof poly of a stick because this floor is exposed to sunlight and they want the floor to look nice for years. If they went with one of the UV resistant epoxies that other companies sell, the protection would erode in a few months and the floor would turn yellowish and the finish would be chalky. So they made the wise decision to use Everlast poly of a stick, and now their floor will look nice for years. The next step is to pour out all of one unit of Part B into one can of Part A and blend well and then roll on the primer cut the primer with solvent.
If you are using our outdoor poly of a stick cut it with Emmy k. If our indoor epoxy cut it with xylene, let the primer dry overnight mark out your first section on the floor, so you can make sure your gauge rake is set to the proper depth and that you can get the correct coverage you may need to mark out The next section before blending each new batch until you are confident that you are getting the right coverage. This is a patio, so we are doing 3 foot by 8-foot sections of 24 square feet for each batch.
This gives us a depth of half an inch. Now you are ready to install the pebble stone pour out all of one unit of Part B into one can of Part A and blend. Well, then, pour two bags of pebbles into a seventeen dollar metal tub and pour the blended resin over the pebbles mix. The resin in thoroughly with a mud, mixing drill, be sure to blend it thoroughly so that there are no dry patches of pebbles pour out the pebbles and spread them with the gauge rack to get a uniform coverage inside the 24 square foot section.
Next, even the pebbles out with a 16 inch finished trowel. We prefer the Marshall town lightweight finish trowels. It is important to take your time and do a nice job trying to have an even finish with no trial marks or stray rocks sticking up. It is easy to do a nice job, but it does take extra time. If you try to hurry it will not look nice, that's the one who's fearing his men did get a car we come apart. It definitely is not badly hurt.
