  1. How do you remove asphalt from concrete

    ?? Much quicker way btw...... M.E.K or xylene spray let soften and raise to surface spray again pressure clean off :) done...... do it allll the time as...we do asphalt sealcoating as well
  2. Driveway strip and stain

    I would stay away from anything behr. Use some DADS to strip....apply with a roller...surface clean.....etch with tsp or any other diluted phosphoric prep... apply color stain :) Should be very easy
  3. sealing a parking garage

    I would break it down to 50k sections at a time.....2-3 guys with airlesses and your good.......of course a real man would do it Rolled on with a 9inch roller by himself lol :P
  4. Need advice, starting paver cleaning business

    13 hp is fine to start.....20inch surfaqce cleaner and phosphoric...muratic and d greaser r your friend
  5. concrete sealer

    Poured concrete normally gets a color stain...or colored concrete sealer.... poured concrete is normally pretty shabby as far as looks go.....so a clear sealer usually isnt enough my.02
  6. concrete chemical solutions?

    Lowes ......... Pour N Restore on all oil.....let sit for about 4-5 hours.... come back sweap off powder..... pour a general degreaser on whats left of stain....then surface clean....
  7. South Florida Seal Coating Tinted Sealer

    The site that is up needs to be taken down and completely changed. Eventually i will put up products. I will post some more pics so you can see the colors close up, maybe that will explain more :)
  8. South Florida Seal Coating Tinted Sealer

    Well i can premix a 5 gallon of sealer with pigment for a lower price than anyone sells clear sealer for....which is VERY economical....And on pavers only 3 colors will work..... theres no need for a pallet.. when adding color back to pavers you are not trying to match any specific color. Pavers are mixed in grey colors and white colors. All pavers depending on what color combination they include are made with 3 different colors. Red, Charcoal, or malt as a base. These are the only colors that are needed. Again... you are not PAINTING the brick.... you are simply applying a CLEAR sealer to pavers as you would any paver job. This clear paver sealer either has a hint of red/black/or malt color with the consistancy of say crystal light. I have saved many driveways by using this product, and saved many thousands of dollars people were goign to spend to replace their old pavers with new ones. I have not had one unsatisfied customer yet. :)
  9. South Florida Seal Coating Tinted Sealer

    Its not powdered dye... Its 30% acrylic colored concrete stain ( usually used to stain concrete, stamped concrete ect)....mixed with 30% clear sealer.. Ill take some more pics later close up :)
  10. South Florida Seal Coating Tinted Sealer

    It is Not waterbased. Its An Acrylic clear 30% solids paver sealer with Coloring added to it. It still acts as any clear sealer would it just has color. The % of color in the clear is undisclosed. It took me a long while and ruined my fair share of bricks and some donated patios getting the blend right its much more than 2% though :) The goal is to add color to the brick without making them look PAINTED or Stained. If you look at the pictures and did not see what they looked like before, you would think they were that color and have clear sealer. And my site is 4 years old and needs to be highly updated. I havnt touched it since 2004.
  11. This is Our private labeled tinted sealer. Will post more pics with diff colors later....these are 15 year old pavers....clear seal did not work....to much color gone out of the brick... solution.....a Clear / Tint clear sealer with Red pigment NOT A STAIN. You can still see the natural paver colors, just puts the red color back into the brick. Browns and Charcoal pics coming soon....border bricks were sealed with clear....so the border stands out. You can Pm me for pricing.
  12. Flagstone washing video

    great video....NO surface cleaner?? Id get bored if i had to do that whole thing with a wand...lol
  13. Let's play...

    You know what..... i actually give this credit for getting that machine onto the roof. Isnt that an event in the Worlds strong man competition?? I think they use 24hp machine though.
  14. Strippers

    Point taken.....Ive never had very good luck ...and actually have fixed a couple driveways where a waterbased stain was put over a previous solvent based stain. Undertanding that both have the same acrylic, the only difference is the carrying agent. In all three cases where the water based stain was used, there was flaking of the new stain. So though it may be possible, i usually try to stay away from it. And that pic does look like acid stain btw lol
  15. Strippers

    I dont deal with latex coatings or wood ect.... When i say waterbase over solvent... im talking more about pavers and concrete... When aplying a ssolvent over top of an old waterbase sealer job....the solvent will (melt) or blend itself into the previous coating givign it something to bond to. A water base product doesnt have this bonding property. It simply sits on the surface and sometimes may cuase it to peel. This is especially true when doing concrete stains. Sorry i forgot to clarify that... Oh and Scott Paul was dead on....I have many scars unfortunately on my legs from Dads lol so use it with cuation. Try spraying pepper spray on ur skin and leave it for 10 seconds and your about 1/2 of what dads feels like lol. And yes it gets pretty messy. I especially like the really thick strip jobs cuase it comes of in big flakes. I get excited about odd stuff like that
