What is the “Wizcrete Concrete Solution”?
Our “Wizcrete” concrete coating is a cement based polymer enhanced coating that has been specially designed and formulated to be applied to the surface of existing concrete or pebblecrete. The concrete is a strong durable spray-on product that can simulate up to 35 exciting patterns such as the traditional Cobblestone and Terracotta Tile.
Where can this product be used?
Our coatings have a myriad of applications such as driveways, terraces, carports, pathways, entranceways, entertainment areas, pool surrounds etc. Custom designed logos and motifs can also be created. For best results the existing concrete surface must be of sound or solid condition.
How long does the product last?
Our “Wizcrete Concrete Solutions” coating has been independently tested by the CSIRO. The results indicate that if the spray on coating is applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications, a service life in excess of 15 years may be expected.
What warranty do you give on your products?
“Wizcrete Concrete Solutions” offers a 5 year warranty on the product when used in domestic situations against fading and peeling subject to the recommended resealing process.
How thick is the re-sprayed concrete surface?
The spray on concrete solution applied onto old concrete and is between 3mm to 4mm so it won’t impede doorways.
Can you correct drainage or low spots?
Generally drainage can be improved. The degree of success is contingent upon the pitch of the concrete adjacent to the low spot. Your “Wizcrete” authorised representative will be able to advise you of the possible outcomes once they’ve seen your place.
Will existing cracks in the concrete re-occur?
Though everything possible is done to treat cracks and eliminate them, external conditions may cause them to reoccur. Proper placement of tension cuts greatly reduces the chance of the crack returning.
Can the “Wizcrete Concrete Solution” be used over pebblecrete and tiles?
Yes, but careful inspection is required to ensure that the surface is sound. If the pebblecrete is sound the “Wizcrete Concrete Solution” can be applied directly after normal preparation. For glazed tiles grinding is normally required prior to application to ensure that a correct bond is achieved.
How much does it cost?
The cost starts at just $42 a square metre. It means the average 70 square metre driveway cost will start at around $2,940 depending on the condition and geography of your driveway. Compare that to the average $8,000 cost of ripping up and replacing your driveway and you’ll see it’s a very economical option.
Can you still put spray on paving over cracked concrete?
Yes, the cracks can be repaired. However, it can’t be guaranteed that the cracks won’t return. If the cracking is sever then that section of concrete will need to be removed and a new section laid prior to resurfacing.
What if my concrete already has paving paint or sealer applied to it?
The surface will need grinding so that only clean concrete is left. It will cost more if the surface needs grinding to remove old sealer or concrete paint.
Can decorative concrete resurfacing be used as a non-slip application?
It certainly can be applied as a non-slip coating. It’s ideal for decorative resurfacing around slippery areas such as swimming pools, wheelchair ramps, or anywhere where there is a risk of slipping on concrete.
How often do I need to re-seal the decorative surface?
Your Wizcrete concrete coating should be resealed every 24-36 months with an approved high-quality sealer. The cost for this service is around $650 for the average driveway.
