Re: Re-surfacing pebblecrete

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @debby1. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

If you apply 2 coats of Megatreat's textured primer over your Pebblecrete driveway you can then apply Megatreat's Liquid Sandstone. The primer needs to be applied at the rate of two litres per square meter. Both these products are available through the Bunnings Special Orders desk at your local store. If you need further information about the application or the suitability for driveways please feel free to contact Megatreat's information line: Ph 02 4982 2877

Re: Re-surfacing pebblecrete

Hi @JRRed,

 

There's been a lot of interest in what product you ended up using for this project. Could you share more detail about how you achieved this incredible end result and how it's looking a year on?

Hello @Al_macca

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining the discussion.

 

It's great that this project has inspired you to resurface your own front porch. Let me tag @JRRed so that they are made aware of your question. The original recommendation in the discussion was to use Megatreat Products. Looking at the resurfaced front porch, it looks very nice and has given it a totally new look. Please keep us updated, I'm sure our members would love to see your front porch once it's been resurfaced.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

Hi MitchellMc,

Just read your reply on the treatment of pebblecreat, can you please advise where Megatreat's Textured Primer can be purchased, as it does not show up on Bunnings website.

Re: Re-surfacing pebblecrete

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @SteveDT1. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about the Megatreat primer.

 

Megatreat's textured primer is available through the Special Orders desk at your local Bunnings stores.

 

Are you planning to cover Pebblecreate with it? If so, make sure to follow the coverage directions.

 

It would be great if you'd like to show us some before and after images of your project, as I trust our members would love to follow along.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Mitchell

Re: Re-surfacing pebblecrete

Hi. On another note, is there a product I can use to make pebblecrete less slippery?

Re: Re-surfacing pebblecrete

Hello @johncald

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's fantastic having you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about making pebblecrete less slippery.

 

I recommend using DTA 1L Anti Slip. It works by altering the surface texture while maintaining the floor's appearance. It's suitable for use around bathrooms, patios, pools, and steps. I suggest using a DTA Turtle Back Sponge for ease of application. Before applying the anti-slip coating, I suggest giving the area a thorough clean with a Ryobi 1800W 2000PSI Pressure Washer. However, if you feel that it might damage the surface, you can use an Oates Compact Deck Scrub Brush. Please make sure that the area is dry before applying the anti-slip coating.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.
