There are different kinds of concrete coating. The choice of product varies, depending if the wall is interior or exterior and on the location of the wall (for example the product used in a bedroom's wall will be different from the coating adopted in a garage).

Epoxy coating are great products that can be used in exterior or interior. Epoxy products however may smell and trigger allergies. Epoxy is one of the strongest coating for exteriors.

If the space is a living room, then it is probably better to use acrylic cement. Acrylic coatings do not smell and do not release volatile compounds. Acrylics look similar to Portland cement and are generally less strong and adherent than epoxy paste.

The application method is usually illustrated in the coating product's container. The procedure consists in cleaning the wall (you can use a power washer), applying the product with a trovel, and then checking the results after 24 hours or when prescribed in the coating's instructions.

After applying the coating you can finish the wall with paint and sealer product.

I have electric gates and my question is regarding the pillar that the arms are attached to.

Use Hydraulic Cement, rather than regular concrete. Regular concrete mix, sand mix, etc doesn't bond well to existing concrete. As soon as you put some torque on it, the bond breaks. When you dig or chip out the area to be replaced, make it larger at the back than the front. When you fill it with hydraulic cement, the slight expansion of the hydraulic cement will force a tight bond. The brand that I used for years is Rockite by Hartline Products, but there are probably ten others. Most people don't realize that when normal Portland cement cures, it shrinks slightly, which is one of the reasons it doesn't bond well to other concrete... it pulls away. If you look at where railings have been drilled into existing concrete steps, you'll see smooth gray material has been poured in. That is usually hydraulic cement. For a sideways application, you will need to make a form to hold the cement it... it is very liquid when you pour it. I would advise putting your bracket and supports in first, and pouring them in place. Put nuts and washers on the bolts, so the cement has something to grab. Be aware, you have to work fast. From mixing to initial cure is only a minute or two.

How do I fix rotted wooden expansion joints in my driveway?

there is a tuberous strip that is used as expansion joints in concrete. To get the correct thickness you may have to use several strips together. they are normally black in colour and you may have to lay in several strips first and then use something like a bolster ( brick cutter) to drive in the last strip. Talk with your concrete supply shop for advice and products ( shop that sells concreting tools and products.)
grout will crack out at that thickness. Because you have such a wide gap (2'' or 4''). I would make up a good concrete mix using bondcrete ( brand name for concrete glue) in the mix and use that with a strip of black jointer either side
Seeing how the timber lasted 40 years if you used treated timber this time it will last another 40 years -probably longer.

I want to strip the concrete floor that I use jasco seal 6 years a go do you have any product I can use .

  • 1 Make sure that the surface of the concrete is cleaned thoroughly. Remove stubborn dirt or stains with a mixture of one part degreasing cleanser and two parts water. Rinse the concrete well and wait 48 hours before continuing.
  • 2 Use a large paintbrush or a long-handled paint roller fitted with a fine-nap roll to coat the entire concrete surface in a thick layer of soy-based or other environmentally-safe chemical stripper. Allow the stripper to eat away at the sealant for 10 minutes, scrape up the peeling sealant with a paint scraper or putty knife. Clean up all of the debris.
  • 3 Rinse concrete to remove all of the stripper. Let the concrete dry 48 hours. Apply the new sealant or the finish of your choice .

    Can I fill an old wood stove pipe going through the concrete foundation wall with concrete mix? It is above outside grade so wondering if i can remove the pipe, block the inside and fill it from outside....

    Im not sure about what you are calling the pipe block but if the out side is above grade use hydrolic cement mix or water plug get out all loose meterial it will bond find just don;t let water get in from out side because if it freezes the ice will expand and crack the repair and over time will start to leak you may want to seal the repair from the outside with a product called water stop i think thats what its called inselx is the co. that makes it then top coat it On the inside you can do what ever works and looks good as long its not leaking from the out side it will last

    I have an old home that has a very space drain pipe. I bought a new Maytag top load washing machine. The drain pipe is too large for the drain pipe. 2 plumbers have told me the drain pipe will have to...

    Whirlpool now own Maytag and with a W/P top load machine there is an adaptor which reduces the diameter of the drain hose. Not knowing the diameters of your drain hose, or the plumbing of your house, I can't say for sure that this is a remedy. However it's worth trying. Contact a Whirlpool stockist and see if the adaptor is the correct size for your new Maytag. Or you may be able to drain the new machine into a laundry tub which then flows into the house drain. This is a normal way of 'taking up the slack'.
    I'm surprised your plumbers didn't suggest it.
    Good luck Nomess

    Trying to drill a solid concrete 10 inch wall

    the ideal sollution is to fully service the machine but there may be a quick fix.
    remove the 4 screws that hold the black plastic handle assembly, and take the handle off. on the top of the drill you will see an oil filler cap. unscrew using a 10mm allan key.
    empty out any old oil. rinse out with some parafin if you like. empty out again . put some new oil in and replace the cap. 50cc of transmission fluid / power steering oil will do the trick. if this dousnt fix it then you will need to replace the o-rings on the pistons, if this is the case, drop me a email and I will send you a parts diagram. paul@wysehire,gi
    good luck.
