Concrete Driveway: How to Resurface
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.
DON: OK. OK. Alrighty. Thank you very much.
TOM: You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
