We have recently replaced the curb and gutter for the house as a part of the remodel and the inspector has flagged a section of the sidewalk as having poor finish. He wants us to attempt to improve the finish or he will have us replace a small portion of the curb and gutter.
He clearly told us that we can not patch this portion with new concrete, but we can try to smear over “Creamy part of cement” on it to give it a smoother finish. He would not tell us more about how this problem can be fixed. I am attaching a photo below to give an idea of what we are talking about.
Any help in this matter would be appreciated. What product/material should I get to fix this issue.
