This is lakefront getaway flooded, and the overlay we installed four years ago took some abuse. We made it better than ever by installing ReFresco and staining it with Colina Tan Permatique.
The four day job went down like this:
On day one we installed a stamped overlay where a wall had been and made repairs to patch deep scratches using THIN-FINISH.
On day two we applied ReFresco. This overlay material is simple sand, cement, and polymer. Since this is extremely thin, the polymer content can be made very high. The thinness also makes it a great way to update colors and hide cement-based repairs, patches, etc. as we did on this deck.
On day three we install Permatique. This application enhances the texture and gives a secondary color, especially in the low spots of stamped concrete.
On the final day we sealed the whole surface with a solvent-based acrylic sealer.
