When it comes to spicing up the look of the exterior of your home while keeping functionality in mind, epoxy pebble-stone systems are the way to go. This blend of real stone material and clear epoxy allows for a beautiful bond to existing concrete that protects the surface for many years to come. The best part is these systems allow for easy water runoff and are freeze and thaw resistant. However, the quality of your system will highly depend on the care you give it.
Just like with any sort of extensively used material like asphalt, epoxy pebble-stones need to be resurfaced every two to five years. The specific timeframe for resurfacing will change depending on the amount of traffic the area receives and the amount of daily exposure it gets to the sunlight. You can contact an expert from Custom Stone Resurfacing to get a better idea of how often your epoxy pebble-stone system will need to be resealed.
Part of keeping unwanted dirt and debris out of your epoxy pebble-stone system is having a pressure washer handy. You should aim to pressure wash your pebble-stone area at least once every month. If the area receives a high level of traffic, you may want to consider pressure washing it more often. Simply start with the lowest setting and work your way up from there. You should be removing the dirt without damaging the epoxy.
Your epoxy pebble-stone system should be made from tough natural rocks that can withstand regular wear and tear in the winter months. You should be able to use a regular snow shovel or snow blower to remove excess snow in the wintertime. If your pebble-stone system accumulates ice, you can use regular rock salt to dissolve it knowing that your system will stay in place.
Although you may try your best, sometimes damage out of your control can harm your epoxy pebble-stone system. Just like with many other products, it is best to have the problem fixed as soon as possible. The longer you let the problem go, the more damage you will end up having to your system. It is always advisable to contact a local expert like Custom Stone Resurfacing regarding repairs to damaged areas so you can ensure they're handled correctly from the very start.
