This is a video on how to apply Gator Seal Satin & Wet Look Finishes
Gator Seal Satin Look Sealer is made from acrylic based polymers. Gator Seal Satin Look Sealer penetrates deep into the concrete paver and natural stone pores, thus reducing the oil and dirt penetration, as well as protecting them from de-icing salt.
Gator Seal Wet Look Sealer is made from acrylic based polymers. Gator Seal Wet Look Sealer penetrates deep into the concrete paver and natural stone pores, thus reducing the oil and dirt penetration, as well as protecting them from de-icing salt.
We’ve badly needed our fence replacing for well over two years. We’d patched it up that many times as we’ve had other more important jobs to do. So here’s how I took on installing concrete fence posts and gravel boards.
The original fence was not only rotten, but each post was wobbly and found all, except the back two, were put in by fence spikes.
So now I plan on finally finishing the patio in front of the garage and then time to think about making a gate.
We had some very tricky weather conditions, so had to do it in parts (so try and do it when you know you have good weather).
We also found absolutely tonnes of concrete, everything was extremely heavy, so I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the helping hand of my fiancé.
If you have lawn drainage problems around your porch, we have one solution that may really help. Whether it be from your eve spouts or (in our case) from our air conditioner, a soggy yard is not good. Dave shows you how he dug a French drain in our yard to solve our wet side yard problem. Another solution may be to lay a drainage pipe, but that was not feasible in our particular situation.
Here's a little drainage project I took on a few months ago and it has really worked out. Prior to installing what essentially amounts to a dry creek bed, my client was experiencing wash out of his mulch during heavy rain.
Several thought processes are required when eliminating a surface runoff drainage problem. First, you want to determine what type of solution will work best. French drains clearly would not be appropriate (they are, in fact, overly used, often, poorly installed, and seldom do they correct the problem); A basin w/ grate and underground piping would work, but a 12" thick, concrete retaining wall was in the path of the runoff outlet making this option an impossibility. So, surface drain (ie. dry creek bed) was the ticket.
Second, you need to anticipate the amount of water that might run through your system and create it so that it is large enough. Also, you must determine the optimum point of runoff entry. In this case, that was pretty obvious. What was neat about this project was being able to turn the water movement to where I wanted it to go...quite nearly a 180 degree turn!
Lastly, consider aesthetics. Sure, it's a drain system. But that doesn't mean it can't be perty!
In this video I’m going to make a concrete lamp with optical fibers.
I’m not only going to use a concrete, but also I’m going to try to embed optical fibers in order to get a constellation like effect. This is my first concrete project and I’m so excited to share with you the entire process of creating it.
