I patched some concrete steps with quick setting cement and then skimmed
the whole thing with the resurfacer mix and the results were acceptable.
Can't say how long it lasted as I sold the place about a year later.
Most of the thin stuff is not recommended for large areas. BUT there are a
million concrete resurfacing products.
Most are designed to set up quickly so the area can be used soon after.
Find one with a retarder in it so you can take your time in applying it.
I make my own recipes in any color you like, even metallic black. Look like
black metallic paint but it's pure concrete.:)
I can resurface anything.
But there are very few of us who can do this.
Find your local concrete canoe club at a local college. They can help you out.
I have used the stuff in an attempt to resurface a pitted garage floor. It
looks ugly. I tried to do a large area all at once all by myself. It must
be troweled quickly because it sets up rather fast. I thought I could
spread it and it would level easily. Not so. A small area like a step
would work okay. A very thin coat would work only if the surface is very
flat to start with. It might not adhere very well if the concrete has been
sealed. Power wash the surface first. Mask off any surface that you don't
