How to Install Knockdown Finish on Concrete Pool Decks, Patios, Driveways, etc.
It is strongly recommended to leave the installation process to a licensed concrete contractor. However, it is also important for homeowners to have an idea of what the application process involves. Here is a rough look at how to spray texture pool decks, patios, or driveways:
Step 1: First, the concrete surface is evaluated to check if it is structurally stable for a spray-down concrete resurfacing. If any damage is found, appropriate repairs are applied first.
Step 2: The concrete surface is cleaned and air-dried properly to ensure proper adhesion.
Step 3: The coating is mixed in accurate ratios to make sure that it cures effectively. It is important that the installer is trained for this as too much water can make the coating weaker when dry.
Step 4: The spray coating is then sprayed using a hopper gun. This is a gravity-fed equipment, powered by an air compressor, that makes it easier to lay down spray-down systems.
Step 5: Make sure that the surface of the concrete is between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The coating is then sprayed evenly and consistently for a more uniform finish.
Step 6: A trowel is then used to knock the sprayed coating down. Just enough to remove the point uneven tips of the sprayed material and creating a textured finish similar to a stucco drywall.
Step 7: A concrete sealing product is then applied on the surface of the cured coating to protect it from penetrating elements and to give it a bit of shine.
