Painted driveway

received_245048910109012.jpegI have just applied 2 coats of BergercJet Dry gloss to my drive way and upon completion have realised that I may have a safety issue. The surface is slippery when it is wet which may cause injury should someone slip on it. 

Checked with the local store and enquired as to whether I could recoat with grit in the paint. Their recommendation was no due to the current cold weather we are experiencing. I have applied safety strips along the top of the drive but I do not know how long they will stay on.

After recommendations on how this issue could be resolved.

Re: Painted driveway

Welcome to the Workshop community @Trouper66. Many thanks for your question, I'm sorry to hear of the issues with your driveway coating.

 

I have spoken to the Berger team and they advised that the can states that the product should not be used on sloped driveways. However, they have recommended that your recoat with grit needs to be done when the substrate is above 10 degrees celsius and you have 3 to 4 days of weather predicted with no rain. In the interim, I would recommend you use safety tape to isolate the area in question.

 

If you need further assistance or had questions about the recoating process, please let me know.

Re: Painted driveway

Thank you for your response. The problem doesn't seem to be so bad today. There is no real slipage as much as yesterday.

Will give it another coat with the grit when the weather improves. In the meantime I have put strips across the drive to give some grip.
