It can also be applied overtop of painted or previously coated or textured surfaces including tile and chattahochee.

WHAT ABOUT THE CRACKS IN MY EXISTING CONCRETE SLAB?
Many cracks are repairable as long as the basic structure of the concrete is sound.Cracks are ground out with a cup grinder to produce a "V".A two-part concrete grout with mesh is then introduced into the crack and will re-bond the crack, though we do everything possible to treat and do eliminate 90% of them we cannot guarantee that our crack repairs will completely hide the crack,but cracks that do reflect through are usually a fraction of the width and much less noticeable than before. If the cracks are extream, we can use them in part of the design or pattern.
