Rolling on RollerRock®

  • Challenge: What do you do when you have two different concrete pours in your driveway that do not match?
  • Solution: Apply Daich Coatings RollerRock® stone coating.

Rolling On RollerRock®

Homeowner Carl Gianino truly disliked the appearance of his driveway — so he took matters into his own hands. Literally.

Carl, a Charlotte, N.C. resident, started by power cleaning his driveway. Then he filled in the expansion joints with a joint filler. Next he rolled on RollerRock® in a Harvest Tan stone coloring to cover the ugly surface. Instant success!

“After the second coat I let it cure for 24 hours, as instructed,” says Gianino. “I then applied three coats of the driveway sealer 12 hours apart. The change was terrific.

“RollerRock immediately added to the curb appeal of our home. We’ve had lots of compliments on the driveway — even from a local masonry contractor!”

Problem-Solving Assistance

However, that’s not the end of the story. Just a month after Carl applied the last coat of sealer, his landscaper left power rider lawn mower tracks on the driveway surface.

“I’m not sure how it happened,” says Gianino. “We’d been parking on the driveway with no problem.”

To remove the tire marks, Carl used a power washer and soap. That took care of much of the stains, but not all of them. So he turned to the experts at Daich Coatings.
