well this week this week we’re down um a couple horseshoe band in look at the ozarks um got this walkway leads over here to the garage you know it’s uh into the front stoop there i got to take this overlay off it’s broke up pretty good um it’s pretty damaged it almost looks like they put it over a slab of rock or something and it could be a couple of coatings i guess uh of concrete but it’s in pretty bad shape it’s got a lot of uh cracks a lot of damage to the to the slab but uh i just kind of took my hammer and chipped that off and it’s it’s hollow up underneath there in that spot i’m not sure how it looks up in here there’s uh you know a few cracks and some water where they water their plants so if that water’s gotten up underneath it there there’s probably good chance that a lot of this underneath here is kind of hollow so i’m gonna go ahead and start grinding this off and see what we’ve got up underneath it here okay we’re going to pick up where we left off on this job they’ve got this slab right here report and it’s ready for an overlay right now so i’m grinding the rest of it off over here as you can see that’s where i stopped i cut that line across there and reported their concrete and i’ve got to come in here and grind the rest of this concrete overlay off that was on here and i’ve already started that’s what the white is i’m taking that down to the original concrete i’ve got to bring it down there’s about a half inch lip that i’ve got to go ahead and and get you know get down flush maybe a half inch or so and we’ll probably slope it back about a foot and a half so it’s got a nice slope to it yeah other than that this is what we’ve got to start with today we’re gonna hopefully get everything ground down today and come in and do our first base coat tomorrow the finished look is gonna be a wood plank [Music] oh luke i am your father okay it’s day two on this concrete wood project down horseshoe bend and lake of the ozarks this is rick uh we just got the base coat on finished the grinding put the base coat on it looks kind of spotty right now because it’s drying up uh it’s getting kind of warm out here and you know wind’s blowing pretty good but this is a base coat it’s actually going to be darker than this but i didn’t want to go in with a white base coat so i added some color to it but you can see how much it is uh drying right there and that’s where i started it gets a little bit more solid here i’m probably going to wind up going with a second coat and it’ll be darker and you can see where it’s more and more solid as far as a darker color goes because here’s where i stopped but i’ll actually do a shade or maybe three shades darker than that i want it to be pretty dark um because when we put our wood pattern down and pull our tape this is the grout coat that you’re gonna see that’s that’s the color but you know it’s going to be almost black uh real dark you know charcoal so um it always lightens up several shades when it is drying but it always goes back to a darker color so here’s where we’re at right now on stage um got several steps to go but we should be done with this next wednesday or thursday and right now i believe this is may 2nd wednesday so anyways that’s what we got for now [Music] all right we got our second base coat on a little bit darker this time so this is the color that you’re going to see probably actually even darker than this once we put stain on it seal it you know of course that after the wood texture goes on it but this is uh a little bit truer to the color so it just went down still a little wet it will dry light but it’ll go back to this color when it’s done but it’s uh it’s a lot more solid now um starting to dry up here and there so there might be i don’t know if it’s shadows or it’s just drying up in certain areas but there you go second base coat is down okay we now have the fiber tape over our two base coats all the wood planks have been measured out everything’s hand taped four six and eight in the width the length is just kind of random i really don’t want a pattern [Music] i’ll be in monday spray over the top of this with the grout coat color that way we lock that tape down and get it sealed off because tuesday we’re going to be doing the texture wednesday we’re going to be staining and thursday we’re going to lock this thing down seal it up and get home okay we’ve got our tack coat on you can still see the tape ghosting through the tack coat of concrete because it’s just a thin layer [Music] we’ll come back in tomorrow morning with the texture coat [Music] so it almost doesn’t look like the uh almost doesn’t look like there’s anything over because you can still see that tape quite a bit but tomorrow you will not see this tape i’ll bury it tomorrow and then i’ll pull it up probably tomorrow afternoon and then we’ll stain it wednesday okay we have the wood texture coat on here uh we just do this coat in a white because uh tomorrow we’ll come in and pull the tape the pattern tape that’s underneath of it and um you know then you’ll be able to see the texture a lot better and of course the pattern once the tape’s pulled but we do it white because we’re going to color it with a couple of different colors tomorrow so that way we’ve just got a clean slate to begin with [Music] it just works better if it’s done on a white base and i don’t know if you can see this very well or not a lot of shadowing here but it’s really hard to tell what the texture looks like let me get a little closer [Music] it’s kind of so bright out here that it’s kind of bleeping everything out let’s try here [Music] all right so that’s what we have for now okay it’s cleaned up and ready for some color all the tape’s been pulled it’s been cleaned up joint lines open back up it’s been edged up against the driveway everything’s nice and clean there all the nail holes have been drilled so every plank has two nail holes on each side of it four per line that’s where the planks meet and they are staggered um uneven on purpose we want this to look as authentic as possible perfect imperfection if that makes sense so i’m getting ready to come in and just hit those nail holes with some darker color to make them completely black and then we’ll start the coloring which is going to be brown and amber [Music] okay this is before the sealer goes on but the color is all done cleaned up it’s ready to go actually started sealing it up top but i stopped to take this video real quick this is how the color turned out again this is before the sealer i’ll do a final after the sealer’s on [Music] [Music] oh [Music] let me know does that look like wood about as close as i pretty much can get it there’s different looks different colors a little bit different patterns that you could do with it but overall i think mission accomplished [Music] okay this job in four seasons is complete [Music] i think wood is done [Music] got some nice texturing real nice coloring just goes uh perfect with the setting they’ve got here now they have the house decorated [Music] you know the big wood beam pillars and the front door all rock it’s just a real rustic look so let’s just kind of finished it off [Music] this is going to run all the way over here to the front stoop [Music] i mean sorry i didn’t want to do anything with that drain other than just do a picture frame around it i didn’t want to drop any lines in it because it’s such a small area can’t keep our wood look for the most part on the side wall from the twin stoop area that will look really weird i think with a bunch of lines running through it especially with that grate we just got some really nice texturing and coloring here see if i can get a little closer so you guys can see it we have to keep the joint lines open so that’s what that is you can’t fill those in because the concrete wants to expand in the winter months well winter and summer so that concrete has to move so we gotta leave those expansion joints open yeah sun kind of gives you a little bit different perspective it does bring out the color but it also kind of makes it look a little bit different than what it really is too that’s why it looks so different over here more it’s covered up in the shade versus out there right in that bright song so the rest of it does look like this it’s just the sun just kind of blends it together more [Music] let’s look at this texture since we’re in the shade here and the coloring [Music] also drilled in every plank [Music] there’s [Music] okay that’s about it for this one you guys are watching this on youtube please subscribe to my channel and uh like the video if you like it leave me a comment let me know what you think and hit that little bell so you stay subscribed to my videos uh links are below to my facebook page and my website where you can get more information all right see you guys on the next one [Music] you
This is rick with custom, concrete design and lake of the ozarks. This week we’re over here in greenview. We’ll, probably be here this weekend. Next week week got to do this outside patio.
There’s, a couple of different slabs poured at different times, so this whole thing is going to be a flagstone pattern. When we’re done with it got a few cracks to repair in both slabs got this area right here.
As you can see, you’ve got to fill that in there’s, a crack that runs there on over to here, and there’s. Another one right here, you know, but we ‘ Ll grind all this stuff off and get it back down to uh.
You know a little bit nicer concrete and get everything repaired there’s. A crack right out here on this outside perimeter on this older slab here and i think there’s, one or two running through the center all right.
Well, we’re about at the halfway point with this project. Everything’s prepped and ready to go for the tack coat that’s, going to go over the pattern tape spent about a day and a half taping. This pattern out.
It’s all hand, taped different size stones, but everything’s, ready to spray that tack coat on. So we’re gonna seal. This tape down that way. Our lighter coat that goes on top won’t, get up underneath this tape, so that’s.
What we call a lock, coat or tap code, so everything’s, set up and ready to go workstations ready. Let’s, go okay. We have our tack coat on this left side over here is obviously still wet. That’s. Why? I ended came here to the very end at my mixing station and stopped that’s.
Why it’s a little darker and over there, as you can tell if you can see through the shadowing, i’ll step on over there because it is dry, but it’s lighter it’s kind Of crunchy because i sprayed it on, but it’s uh.
You know it’s, locked that tape down. So now there’s, a thin layer over the top of it, and that’s. That’s kind of the stage we’re at the next coat is going to be our texture coat. So, okay, we’ve wrapped up this job over here in greenview, got a flagstone pattern or just maybe a random rock pattern.
Some pieces are kind of rounded some of the rocks and some of them have points to them. Some of them are triangular, so we just did just kind of a random rock pattern. I guess you could say it’s starting to rain now, so i’m.
Probably gonna have to make this pretty quick. If you guys are watching this on my youtube channel, please subscribe to my channel like the video. If you like the work and leave me a comment, let me know what you think of the work uh the website.
