    Pebble Stone or Epoxy cement overlay

    Does any one have experience with adding an overlay of this type? I want to do this on my driveway, under carport and the walkways around my house. Looking for what I can expect to pay and how long it will possibly last. Any information actually. Thanks in advance.

    Here is a pic of what I'm basically looking for:

    I have exactly what's in your pic. About 350 baht per sq meter all in.
    Been in for several years and still looks good. Does require some mold removal every couple years.
    High pressure sprayer works the charm.

    Hi Norton. Thanks for the price info. When you say all in, is that material and labor? Does this go right on top of smooth concrete, which is what I have, or does it need to be roughed up in some way? Also, your profile says you're in Roi Et. Can you recommend someone to do the job? Can they do a concrete pour as well? I want to add an additional walkway and patio. Thanks again!

    Let me check tomorrow. They are busy as hell at the moment. If you are close to Roiet (20/30 km) sure they will do. Just a question of when.

    So few of us farangs in Roiet, we probably know each other. I know a couple Dan's. I can't send you PM as you haven't enough posts. You need 50 posts. Go off to games forum and you'll soon have 50. When you get there, I will send you phone number. Builder needs to look at what you want so he can give you estimate and date to start.

    Yes, we probably do know each other. I have an idea: if you get the expat newsletter, send the Editor an email and ask him to forward the phone number, or your contact details, to the Dan that's in aviation. I've met him for coffee a couple of times and he'll know who I am. If you don't get the newsletter, let me know and I'll give you the link to sign up. Great little publication for our little community.

    Update. Today I was introduced to a company that does this work here in Roi Et. The company, yes company (not a couple of guys that know how to do it) is family run and reportedly has been in business for some 20+ years. The manager (son in law of the owner) came to our house, brought various size/color stones and samples of the finished product. They measured all around the house and then took us to 3 customer locations that they had finished recently. The work was quite impressive and the homeowners spoke highly of both the product and the work/workers.

    He quoted 2 prices, any size stones, by the square meter: 260 baht for all one color surface, 280 baht for 2 colors (imagine one color with a second color for a border). 50 baht extra per square meter for a sealer to ensure no mold accumulation. They also can do inlaid shapes such as stars, etc.

    Also, for additional charge, they will do tile removal and additional concrete pours, with me providing those materials. Of course I can have someone else do that work if I want.

    This question has come up in another thread. In the US we call it exposed aggregate.

    Sometimes the concrete is washed, merely exposing the aggregate that's already in the concrete.

    For a really good effect special rocks are scattered on the wet concrete and floated all the way into the concrete. Some people immediately hose off just enough of the concrete to expose the stones. I think it is much better to wait overnight, pour muriatic acid on the still green but setting surface, wait a bit and then hose it off. The acid won't soak in very far and you won't risk removing too much concrete and loosening the stones.

    In any event it always looks best with a clear sealer over the finished job.


    Seeded with special stones:




    Just exposing the aggregate that's naturally in the concrete:
