Smooth Gray Concrete Overlay was applied over the prepared driveway, textured with a broom and taped off using painter’s tape to mimic wood planks.
Ken using his own application technique mixed 649 and 653 brown concrete pigments with water and sprayed the color onto the wet overlay. He then darkened random section with a tinted concrete sealer to provide greater color contrast across the driveway
The driveway was finally sealed with two coats of Solvent-Based Satin Finish Acrylic Sealer for color depth and durability.
Satin finish sealers are recommended for driveways to reduce the possibility of slip hazards when wet.
