Project: Commercial Sidewalk
Size: 1,600 sf
After many years of a no maintenance strategy, concrete walkways had become worn, unsightly and in a few cases, a liability. Their insurance company had warned them to fix the trip hazard areas or they would be shut down. Many of the locations were in high traffic areas near the entrance of the stores so they needed to allow customers at least partial access to the stores. This created a challenging situation and required a fast setting solution.
NEXT-GEN SURFACING SOLUTION’S CEM-SHIELD SR was placed in multiple layers to shield the concrete surface, give it a “like new” appearance and prevent future deterioration. The sidewalk was done in 2 phases to allow for necessary customer access through the area. As always, prior to application of the resurfacer material, all areas were properly prepared; shot blasted, grinded, acid etched, chipped out and leveled as needed.
Stakeholders were very happy with the results both structurally and aesthetically. Have since adopted a “proactive strategy for all locations featuring Next-Gen’ CEM – SHIELD SR.
