DIY Concrete Curb Repair
Think you can handle the project by yourself? You’ll save some money if you can manage the project on your own. However, you’ll need powerful equipment and dedicate a lot time to ensure a quality job that last for years, if not decades. Concrete curbs can take a lot of damage from cars, the weather, and even pedestrians. It is no wonder that curbstones’ condition deteriorates quickly. Not many people make an effort to repair curbs of their yard or a driveway. However, if they do, it improves overall impression of their home and the safety of drivers. It’s not terribly difficult to mix and lay your own concrete curbstone. Just be sure to follow this guide:
- Safety First – Before you begin your project, wear protective clothing and a safety goggles to avoid flying concrete. Also, wear a mask to protect you from inhaling the dust and harmful chemicals.
- Clean the Curb – First, clean the existing curb of any debris. From the area which you are about to patch, remove any dirt, plants or anything else that may get in the way.
- Remove Broken Pieces – Next, remove any cracked or loose pieces of concrete. Try using a small hammer and angled chisel. Then, use a steel brush to scrub the entire surface of the curb. That way you remove any dust or unstable chunks of concrete. Dispose of the debris in a safe manner.
- Wash the Surface – Wash down the curb with a garden hose or a pressure washer. Let the material dry out for two days. This way you not only further clean the curbstone but also you prepare it to accept concrete bond adhesive.
- Apply Adhesive and Mix Concrete – Then, apply bond adhesive all over the surface of the damaged part of the curbstone with a paintbrush. While the glue is drying out, mix up concrete patch mixture.
- Lay Concrete – Before applying the concrete patch, ensure that its consistency is even. Apply it all over the damaged area.
- Smooth the New Concrete – With a trowel, work the concrete into the damaged area. Smooth the area as much as possible. Make sure it is even with the rest of the existing concrete. Scrape away any excess patch mixture. Before the concrete dries out, smooth it out even more with a wet sponge.
- Match the Colors – Finally, use pure cement and mix it into your paint. Apply it on the curb to match the color of the rest of the curbstone.
