The preparation of the concrete surface is extremely important as the long lasting nature of spray-on paving is dependant on adhesion.
- Repair of cracks.
- Masking of walls etc. to prevent overspray of product damaging other surfaces.
- A primer coat is then applied which supports in the molecular bonding process of the spray-on pattern paving to the original concrete surface.
- Levelling of surface – if going over exposed aggregate for example.
- If required a base coat is applied in the colour of your choice. This becomes the mortar or grout line of your new spray-on pattern paving.
- The stencil pattern concrete paving, including a border if required, is now installed on top of the base coat and fixed to the surface.
- Spraying of border colour. 2-3 coats of your border then sprayed.
- When the border is properly dried it is covered up.
- Spraying of main colour – usually two coats are applied, the final coat providing the textured anti-slip safety surface.
- Removal of stencil pattern and cleaning of surface.
- Application of sealant – usually two coats is applied to protect your new spray paving for many years to come.
- Area is roped off so that no objects of weight can be placed on the finished concrete driveway surface or driven over for a minimum of 5 days after completion.
- Area should be resealed approximately every two to three years depending on what type of usage and degree of wear and tear.
