Procedure for Simulated Kool Deck

DAY ONE

  1. Rocks and grass are moved away from concrete allowing the color to flow over the sides.
  2. The surface is checked for any grease, oil, and tar which will be removed with a thinner (xyleen).
  3. All concrete is etched with muriatic acid which will remove dirt and grime, and also open the pores of the concrete for proper bond.
  4. All concrete is treated with ammonia; this neutralizes any acid left behind.
  5. Fill cracks on top of the surface at no charge but concrete may shift so we cannot guarantee cracks.
  6. A coat of acrylic additive is rolled on to seal the concrete acting as a primer. We pare and tape the house, walls, windows, etc.
  7. A layer of acrylic aggregate is sprayed on out of a hopper on the surface to act as another primer and the first coat of texture.
  8. A heavier coat of acrylic aggregate is sprayed on to make texture and troweled down to make the look of cool deck.
  9. Lastly we clean up and let dry overnight.

DAY TWO

  1. The surface is scraped down and blown off to clean any chunks and dirt left behind.
  2. A thin bead of caulk is put between any opening in the joints and the house to seal the crack where needed. There is no charge for this extra service but we cannot guarantee the shifting of concrete.
  3. An acrylic color of choice is rolled and brushed on cool deck to seal surface.
  4. We apply a two-part component of polyurethane 250 clear coat with modified U.V. absorbers and hindered amine light stabilizers, which will outlast one-component acrylic for many years.
