Epoxy pebble concrete resurfacing

I'm considering resurfacing my old concrete patio with an epoxy pebble material. Can anyone tell me if the material lasts, is easy to maintain/keep clean or any other pros/cons associated with this type of product?

Really bad idea.
What's wrong with the old one?

At the top of the page is a search window. If you search for "epoxy pebble" you will find past posts about the system and see the problems or issues others have had. Keep in mind that generally people only come to this forum when they have a problem and we don't allow people to simply post and say things are great... so you will only see problems. Don't let that be a discouragement. Just don't be surprised that you don't find positive posts.

'What's wrong with the old one?'

When I put the patio in, I went against the advice of a few people and did an acid stain finish. The finish on the patio looks great right after I power wash it. However, it's a dust magnet and way too much work to keep looking nice.

I figured the pebble resin resurface would have problems with it but I'm really struggling with finding a way to fix a long standing problem. I would like a professional finish that is easy to keep looking nice and will last. Suggestions?

no idea why you got advice against acid staining but that time's passed,,, have you tried sealing the acid-stained patio ?

what you call epoxy pebble is commonly known as 'chattahoochee' finish,,, doubtful its a good selection in washington due to climate

I always thought that was just human nature--didn't know it was a forum RULE. How peculiar...

The forums are here to help folks, neither bragging [with no other benefit to the post] or product bashing helps so they aren't allowed.

Generally speaking, every thread should contain a question. Hence, simply bragging about something is not consistent.

I'm curious to see the answer to stadry's question about sealing the concrete.

if you've got conc dusting, that's usually an indication of a low strength surface,,, a lithium silicate densifier will strengthen the conc & prevent dusting
