Steps, landings and porches tend to crack over time due to their constant exposure to the weather elements, and step edges also start crumbling, creating a hazard for the user. They do not, however, need to be demolished and rebuilt (unless specified by engineers, depending on their condition) – our specialised industrial-grade materials allow for concrete surface restoration.
The repaired concrete surfaces can be coated with a polyurea-based waterproofing membrane which protects them for years and looks good at the same time.
Surface repair must be done before steps can be coated: cracks must be filled, and patches installed, as needed. If there is any loose concrete, polyaspartic coating will not adhere properly.
Cracks are filled and smoothed over after they are cleaned out. Patches are installed, to fully restore the surface: minimal demolition is done to remove any unsound concrete, the area is coated with an industrial-strength adhesive, and the patch is applied.
A polyurea-based membrane follows – it covers the entire surface (steps, landings – if any, and the porch). It is highly recommended that the sides of the staircase be coated as well, to ensure lasting waterproofing results. It is a two-layer application: a polyaspartic basecoat is installed, non-slip aggregates are broadcast, and a polyaspartic topcoat follows, to fully seal the surface.
