Dependable concrete replaces a hazardous step
Published on May 28, 2017
Benjamin Moore paint contacted Dependable concrete to replace a hazardous step. In this video I demonstrate how we performed this job. Our website: www.dependableconcrete.com After demoing the concrete, we set the form. This step will have a bull nose front.p Will use 4000 PSI FIBER integrated Concrete will use 4000 PSI fiber integrated concrete To prevent lost revenue., we installed a ramp for Benjamin Moore's clients. The forms are removed once the cast concrete can support itself.
We use Type 1 Portland cement for the finish coat. It's recommended to match the finish coat to the cement type used in the concrete. Before smoothing or slicking the cement finish, its important to begin with clean and wet tools. This red grout sponge is the ideal tool for finishing the facial of a concrete step. See link below for sponge. A professionally finished step will have sharpe corners and edges. You want to continuously fine tune your finish. Remember, timing is key . Keep in mind that while working on an area, you are allowing another area to dry. A leveled and slick curve in the bull nose shows a finishers level in skill and craftsmanship. For our finish coat We use a 1 to 2 ratio mix. One part Portland cement to two parts bar sand Our corners are sharp, plumbed and leveled. Novices struggle to finish sharp corners You can do work of this quality now that I have shown you how to do this job. Remember it's important not to rush the process and to efficiently use and manage dry time.
