This is where things can get tricky. Depending on the type of material, size of the concrete slab, and consistency of your material, you are going to want to have a few different tools at your disposal. For smaller areas, all you may need is a trowel but for larger areas, you are going to want to have a squeegee on hand. Remember, the weather plays a major role in this process. We recommend refraining resurfacing on a hot summer day. But, if you are on a strict timeframe, make sure to keep the area you are working in shaded, use cold water to mix and mix your material in batches in necessary. Taking your time won’t only save you a headache, it will save you time in the long run. We also recommend refraining from filling expansion joints with the topping, use weather strips to prevent cracking. Try to make the topping as smooth and as level as possible for the best-finished product.
