Year-Round Repairs - Polyurethane repairs can be done in most any weather. Provided the driveway can be dried before you begin, there is no need to worry about temperatures. FlexSet can be ordered with a catalyst for use in cold weather. With traditional repairs- patching concrete driveways using concrete driveway crack filler, driveway concrete sealer and driveway cold patch, the weather must be right and even with the best weather, it can take a minimum of five days wait before you can park again. With FlexSet, your concrete driveway repair will set up in under an hour regardless of humidity or cold.
The prime cause of cracks in concrete foundation is seepage of water. Such cracks caused due to leakage of water are thin and hairline. They may widen over time, but they are present only in those areas where the seepage occurs. In order to repair leakage cracks, it is necessary first to investigate the source and the point from which the leakage originates.
Staining Technique: Unlike coloring technique where it is mixed with wet concrete or its initial production, staining is used on hard concrete. This is also used to change the already existing color. Whenever you think of decorative concrete coating, nothing could be an apt choice other than Quartzdek. Prepared with quality resins and quartz mixture, this is an efficient decorative coating and colorfast material with many benefits like anti slippery, water resistant, and, and easy to clean. It does not require any painting material. In the market, many decorative coatings are available but nothing is comparable to Quartzdek.
I called Brian the certified installer for the Cerlon product and showed him the problem. We decided that we could repair any of the aprons in the project that needed to be repaired using Cerlon. The aprons are 18” wide by the length of the door. We snapped a line half the width of the garage door thickness. We then installed a diamond masonry cutting blade on a skilsaw and cut a ¾” deep cut along the chalk line. The next thing we did is every 3 inches we scored the concrete the length of the door ¾” deep.
You can mix a batch of Cerlon at a time then trowel it because Cerlon will adhere to itself even if it is set without causing a cold joint. Cerlon sets in 10 minutes. Cerlon when setting the temperature reaches in excess of 140 degrees. In my opinion Cerlon to patch concrete is best product to use to eliminate salt from damaging the Concrete. Cerlon also sets fast so there is little or no down time on the area to be repaired. The only down side to Cerlon is the need for training so that Cerlon does not harden before you can finish it.
