Engraving Technique: Any pattern can be used for the new concrete slabs, but only engraving technique can bring aesthetic appeal to the old concrete lab without demolishing it. Engraving can be used to create complex patterns on the slab. After engraving, it is stained to give coloring appeal.
Repair Driveway - Concrete Driveways wont last forever. Even the best laid concrete is subject to wear and tear, not to mention damage from sprinklers or other sources of water. Since driveways must carry heavy weight loads, the repaired area must be able to withstand significant pressure. The problem with concrete driveway crack filler, driveway concrete sealer and driveway cold patch is that the material is not as strong as the original concrete, and the bond is not always secure. When the repair breaks down, the damage is even worse than before it was fixed. What started as a simple driveway crack repair has turned into a major rehabilitation. With polyurethanes, the repair is strong yet flexible, preventing further breakdown. FlexSet actually bonds to the concrete driveway repair, making it last longer than just patching concrete driveways.
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.
