This was a job I did on a friends house today. I’m just getting started and only working on friends within my network at the moment until I feel capable of working on strangers homes.
I’m just curious what these streaks are and will they disappear once it fully dries? I started late in the day 6pm and by 730 when I was rolling everything up it wasn’t dry yet.
It’s a 15 year old driveway. I pretreated DS 50/50 SH used my surface cleaner and then post treated with HW (Great video by @Racer really helped) From what I’ve read some might say that’s overkill but I really wanted to try everything to get more experience. I really just want to focus on creating good habits regardless of the job size or how long it takes at first.
Pre and post treating is a necessity on some jobs, no one thinks it’s overkill. 50/50 downstreamed is better than nothing, but it’s a weak mix for concrete treating. 3% minimum for me and not downstreamed, applied with a 12v pump, or pump up sprayer if you’ve had your spinach.
From what I could tell the aggregate was already exposed before I started cleaning it. I never noticed anything resembling cream while cleaning…just dirt and grime. I’ve yet to do any newer surfaces yet.
I have 4gpm/4400 psi and a powerhorse 16in SC right now. I swapped out the factory tips which were 0’s with 25025 tips. I’m already looking at getting a bigger SC…I’m doing this with a friend he purchased the SC not realizing the SC is only rated to 3500psi
