Host: The first project is the patio. First thing we have to do is we have to get the steps all the way. We can go and stamp the whole area but the good thing is we have screws so we don’t just have to coming here and start this thing out. Okay so now it’s going to get the top and that’s the most important thing before we do the next step, just to make sure the surf is completely clean. Female: Its good thing they’re sleeping I’m not very good at it. Host: Yeah, well I don’t really sleep on my own place. Okay so now we need to spray down this polymer and we’re going to coat the entire area with the bonding agent. With that that’s creates a nice bump between this concrete and then the dense are going to put on top of it so if you are going to grab this and then you will make sure that it is evenly distributed around the concrete you help to knock it down under the premises. We are going to let and set and dry to the next two hours and that will give us a perfect time to go to the concrete place and check out the pattern that you want and to get the stamp and get the overlay concrete. We are ready to stamping molds by the day, but first you know we got some decision to make about color and style. So basically we got this patio that sort to get some concrete now, she wants to do a stamp concrete finish on top it’s easy when we think that you know stamp and concrete something it you would never try to do your self so once you get the right stuff. Male: Yeah with this material it’s very simple to work with, with the existing patio if you are going to have already straight control joints or expanding joints then you want something that’s square to be able to help you hide those. Host: We are definitely not going to do this, we are not going to try to complete that pattern on the square patio that wouldn’t work out force. Female: The Square is looks good. Host: Okay so that’s when you like, and let’s talk about colors. Female: Well we have papers on the other side and they’re kind of the gray with the black. Host: Right. Female: So, probably it goes black. Host: Okay we get the truck to loaded up and will get out of here and get back to work. Very good and thanks I’ll appreciate it. Female: Thank you very much, you can throw this. Host: Here we go. We have all the material here, first I want to do I want to fill in this cracking and you sand or a cement or whatever what we are going to do use to quick right here. Male: I just pour some in if you want to start level in some of that in there. Host: I feel asleep in this patio. Female: I don’t sleep there. Host: Okay first we need to mix up our material; we are using concrete to cover the patio then will stamp it with our decorative pattern. What we are going to do is we are going to get this entire patio covered and then we are going to start stamping process and then we’ve got his gauge rake that basically. Female: Like this one. Host: Yeah, as you can see the spacer here so what we does is to make sure you level just like that we have a batch more to do. Here we go, just going to splash a little bit. This is something that most home owners don’t know about, it’s a neat way to chance to look your outdoor patio and lot people have to use concrete patios to get stand and with that they get jack hammer amount is actually a cooler method and then you can pick the design and ask you can find too when you get sake them together. Now, it’s time for us to stand this thing, now we do have these stamps, the molds here that you pick out. We have to press them into the new concrete before it dries then it will give this the stone paper pattern. We’ve got this liquid release. Female: What is liquid release for? Host: Well basically it saw that this will not stick to the concrete. Female: Kind of like a ham? Host: It’s yes kind of like a ham. Now the different colors represent different patterns. Female: Okay how do you know where they going? Host: It’s always this are off days in the right way then you are all good. Here you go.
