Concrete Driveway: How to Resurface

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Don in South Carolina needs help with a painting project. What can we do for you today?

    DON: What type of paint should I put on a concrete driveway?

    TOM: Mm-hmm. What’s the condition of the driveway, Don?

    DON: Well, it’s in good shape; it’s not cracked or anything like that but down here the sun gets so daggone hot and stuff. I just don’t know what type of material to put down on it [inaudible at 0:10:11.1].

    TOM: (overlapping voices) You know, there’s a product that QUIKRETE has; it’s called a concrete resurfacer. And it’s kind of like paint but you sort of mop it on with a squeegee.

    DON: Yes, sir.

    TOM: And what I like about it is it’s incredibly durable stuff and it sticks really well. And frankly, I think it’s going to stick better than any of the typical epoxy paints, in that particular situation, because you’re right: with all the sun that comes beating down on that, you want a product that’s got really good adhesion.

    DON: Yeah, yeah. Exactly. Exactly.

    TOM: And it really makes it look like brand-new.

    DON: When is the best time to put that down? Because it – I mean …

    TOM: Yeah. Not temperature extreme; so not too hot and not too cold. So, early morning is probably fine.

    LESLIE: (overlapping voices) Mm-hmm. And you want it to be super-dry.

    TOM: Yeah.

    DON: OK. OK. Alrighty. Thank you very much.

    TOM: You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
