However dont believe that this is your lone alternative in decorative concrete. You could also decide to shine your cement with grinders that contain grits and diamond pads. Most concrete floor will tolerate a grit of 800. At least one technique is to add Sodium Silicate or Lithium Silicate to the cement while it solidifies which will boost the capability to add gloss and grit with the polished off cement. Immediately following numerous stages with the grinders you should have a glassy and smooth finish to the cement. Dye coloring might be added throughout the polishing stage which will make for a very decorative cement finish.
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.
