In the Santa Rosa, California wildfires, what protected some of the houses?
Hairline is the key word here. All concrete has these check marks as it is called. If it is not gaping open, don't worry with it. Otherwise get a sack of underlayment and brush it on with strokes going the same direction giving it a brushed finish.
it wil cost alot cause he was blocking a fire hydrant but i will tell you the fire department does not care cause if there is a fire and they need to get to they will break the windows on it and there is nothing he can do . nor could he charge them for repair or even sue
Natural disasters are not even predictable. There is no question of stopping.But understanding the way how we should act during different types of disasters can save you . For instance during thunder storm don't stand in open ground or near out side of the buildings or under a tree. If you happen to be in open ground role your body as a ball. Lightening affects tall person tall buildings and tall trees.
first of all it would be a good idea to etch the concrete with muriatic acid. this will neutralize the surface. there are instructions on the jug to tell you what to do and what the ratio of acid to water is. remember always add the acid to the water not the water to the acid. make sure you have rubber boots, rubber gloves, safety goggles and a mask and cover all exposed skin. use a heavy brush and scrub the concrete with your acid solution. it will bubble and fizz. then rinse well and allow ample time to dry and make sure you don't get any acid in the pool water or it will lower your PH and total alkalinity. you have many options on what to apply. 1st is a concrete stain it will penetrate the concrete and shouldn't peel but it will fade in time and will need to be redone. 2nd is an alkyd porch and floor enamel this will work not bad but will peel in time. 3rd is my favourite a 2 componant epoxy paint. don't use the stuff from home depot with the clear bonding primer it will not last. benjamin moore has a good epoxy paint and you can get it in a wide range of colours. i have painted many pools with this and it will last a very long time. if you have any coping that is above your pool walls you can use this on it also if it is fading. it will extend the life of the coping if it is vinyl. 4th option there are companies that have a 3 part system that can look like granite you can do many different things with it but i have never seen any of this stuff last more than a year or 2. once your painting is dried test the water chemistry to make sure it is still ballanced.
