Daitch appears to be a reputable company. they seem to be concerned that their products are used correctly and your project turn out well so they had a dvd made. not too many companies do that,usually you've got the instructions on the can and that's it!

tnx,

Analogmusicman, how are you going to fix your cement where it's chipped on the flat surface and on the edges before applying the Daich?

Is it even necessary to make repairs or does the Daich fill in the imperfections? I didn't see anything about it in the video.

sorry, no pics of the bathroom backsplash, but last i saw it, it looked fine.
but here's a pic of the horsehead vase i used the last of the stuff on so's not to waste it.
the vase had some bad chips. i repaired the chips and coated this 15 or so years ago. it sealed and hid all the cracks and chips well.

I'm going to use "Planipatch" to fill the holes and cracks and fix the edges after I clean off the old carpet cement. the video I got says that surface prep is important and the surface should be good. I don't think the product will fill the holes and cracks.

tnx,

it hides small things very well, but surface prep for walking on it is very important. so it sounds like you're on the right track.
have you figured out how to get the old carpet goop off yet?

speaking of pulling teeth, you're like a horse,,, 2x i've led you to the water & both times you refuse to drink

' remove some old i/o carpet adhesive ',,, get a f'n grinder & diamond turbo cup wheel,,, we do this for a living,,, pressure wash AFTER the adhesive's gone while you're adjusting the conc's pH for the o'lay,,, if you still wanna f around w/those who got lucky & had jobs turn out well, fine - we can't take those chances,,, btw, any & EVERYONE ( including their brothers ) has dvd's,,, not a wk goes by we don't get 1 or 2 in the mail so that's point's irrelevant & false,,, done w/this thread ! ! !

ps - mouse - nice post,,, doesn't look like conc at all the horse sucks, tho

ok,it's been since last summer and it's finally time to get that concrete slab re-finished. (did I say it's U-G-L-Y?) will go with that Daitch stuff, looks good and is affordable. (got their dvd too)
plenty of old adhesive on the slab from the old i/o carpet. got some real strong adhesive remover from Lowe's which has removed quite a bit of the adhesive but not all. will use my angle grinder with diamond wheel to grind off the rest of it.
question: before I put on Daitch's primer,how much more surface prep is needed? I mean,should I go over the whole slab with the diamond wheel including where I patch with the concrete patch mix I got from HD? I understand surface prep is the key to a good job. (don't want to be redoing this EVER!)

just as a BTW: Lowe's sells polymer "porch posts" at a decent price. a new one will go on before the coating goes on. heard too many negative things about replacing it with a wooden post.

tnx,

if we have to to remove anything, its always mechanically w/grinders/scarifiers/scabblers,,, wouldn't think of using any ' adhesive removers ' - don't know about daitch - never used it nor ANYTHING that needs ' primer. ' ( which's just an acrylic milk )

it certainly can't hurt to grind the complete deck - what're you going to do w/a 1/2 used wheel, anyway ? btw, make sure you have good kneepads.

many material suppliers for this trade require training albeit its basic & best serves to initiate a good working relationship 'tween distributor & artisan,,, 1 thing we do learn is there's little avail from an apron store other'n brooms, gloves, & rolls of 6mil plastic,,, the other's not to use adhesive remover & expect the job to last,,, we don't learn from cd's, w-sites, diy forums, pamphlets, or brochures,,, you can get away w/your method 'cause its yours - we can't 'cause its theirs & we guarantee our work,,, best of luck !

if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help
