This church’s entrance gets a new facelift in Oklahoma. It is quite common to see a dated and old concrete slab or walkway. You might not even notice the condition of the concrete if it a standard grey unfinished slab. The weather and moisture plays a big role in the wear and tear of concrete.
This Church decided it was time to clean up it’s property and decided to start with the concrete.
A before shot of the boring walkway at United Life Church in OKC. Hard to see but parts of the sidewalk have big cracks
Preparing surface to repair cracks before application of spray base. Getting all the loose gravel and debris out of the crack
Cutting old concrete to accept steel plates used in stitching to repair large moving cracks. Notice steel plates on the concrete. These will be slipped into the saw cuts and sealed with SS Specialties Crack Fill
First step to SS Specialties Crack Fill, sand
Applying the actual SS Specialties Crack Fill
Grinding area where SS Crack Fill has been installed
Mixing the diluted SS Polymer mixture into the bucket of Spray Base using a paddle mixer
Preparing to fill Hopper Gun with the prepared Spray Base and Polymer Mix
Testing the hopper gun to see how its gonna spray. Note the high tech shields on the applicators shoes…..this saves his shoes from getting a fresh coat of Spray Base while spraying! The concrete has already been prepared with a coat of diluted SS Polymer thus allowing it to accept and adhere to the surface
Texturing the Spray Base application called “Spray Base Knock down finish.” Notice the applicator is wearing spiked shoes allowing the ability to walk on wet Spray Base
More texturing the Spray Base for the knock down. Notice how the building was protected by paper when using the hopper gun
Rolling on SS Supreme 2500 with SunBuff Color Pac mixed into the acrylic sealer
Completed job with no cracks and a fresh and pleasing surface
No more cracks!
