    Concrete Deck Treatment

    i have spoken to a couple people regarding Cool Deck etc- they all run around $4/foot-

    Re: Concrete Deck Treatment

    What does cool deck do and what are you looking the do (what's the purpose)? Are you looking for protecting or a stain / color?

    Re: Concrete Deck Treatment

    If it's just broom-finish concrete you can stain it, seal it, paint it, vinyl finish it. There are also a number of DIY texture deck coating finishes. Paint doesn't hold up very well but all the others a reasonable options. How do you want it to look? How much money/time/effort are you willing to devote to the project?

    A lot will depend on your level of skill and experience as a DIYer and the amount of time and $$ You are willing to donate to the project.

    Re: Concrete Deck Treatment

    i have been looking at the Seal-Krete system- budget like to be done under $2K with something that looks good- but i am worried some of these newer products haven't been around long enough to establish much of a history. My Concrete is in very good condition- but it has Zero personality- and its rough on the feet- would like to put something down that is aesthetically groovy and add some of that non slip additive. My gut is to stay away from paint- the seal crete has an etch... followed by a bonding primer - and then 2 coat application with a sealer as a third coat-

    i like the idea of the bonding primer requirement on any system for longevity- thoughts???
