Resurfacing and Patching

Step 1

Properly clean the surface and make necessary repairs as described on the bag. Mix Concrete Resurfacer according to instructions on the bag. Section off work areas no larger than 144 square feet (13.4 square meters). It’s essential that control joints and expansion joints are maintained. Use weather stripping or duct tape to prevent the concrete resurfacer from spilling into the joints.

Step 2

Saturate the surface with water, and then remove any standing water. Pour and then spread the concrete resurfacer with a long-handled squeegee. Use the squeegee to scrub the material into the surface.

Step 3

For a slip-resistant, professional finish, follow within five minutes with a broom, making full strokes across the entire distance of the current work area without stopping. If desired, use a concrete edging tool within 20 minutes of pouring.

Step 4

For thicker applications, use additional thin layers of the concrete resurfacer, or use a trowel-applied layer after the initial squeegee application. For trowel-applied mixes, reduce the water to approx. 2 3/4 quarts (2.6 liters) per 40-pound (18.1 kilograms) bag.

Refer to the bag for additional instructions and adverse temperature conditions.
