We recently completed a decorative concrete resurfacing project on a driveway in Fort Wayne, Indiana. On this particular driveway, there was an old sprayed-on coating that was applied over 10 years ago and the homeowners wanted a different look to enhance the curb appeal of their home. Our first step was to grind-off the old coating by diamond grinding the complete driveway with a spiral grinder and hand grinding the edges – followed by acid etching, neutralizing then pressure washing the entire surface.
We then troweled down a base coat of a brown polymer cement and the following day sprayed a desert beige coat (with 95 percent coverage of the surface). The sprayed coat was “knocked-down” immediately after being sprayed to give the driveway our unique Spanish Lace look.
The surface was then antiqued with a hint of coffee and gunmetal pigment and sealed with two coats of sealer. Adding sealer to the already existing brick border helped set this one off. Check-out the pictures below to see the complete concrete makeover!
