if you get tired of all that, and don't care how it looks = clean, "cold patch", tamp, done.
i did it at my MIL's house a few years ago. and it still looks like i did it last week.
Wife won't go for that haha, but it's a good suggestion. If I was still a bachelor, maybe!!
Current plan: get my hammer and chisel out and knock out material, try to get the sides square etc. Then power wash the whole thing very well and let that dry.
Quickrete sand mix. For areas over 1" thick, according to instructions, use Bonding Adhesive first, then put the sand mix on. For areas under 1" thick, mix the quikrete sand mix with the acrylic fortifier and slap it in there. Trowel it in, work it in, then screed it flat.
I might do one area first and see what happens. I might use the resurfacer afterwards to get it looking uniform but I read a lot of contradictory things about that.
I'll mix everything in a 5 gal bucket with a power drill and paddle.
I want to do it in the next week or two while the temps are moderate and while it's relatively wet.
Projected project cost: $50-$75. The sand mix is 5$/60 lb bag.
Oh, and I guess I am buying some crack patcher that you apply with a caulk gun for the cracks on the driveway and chimney cap.
