What is the proper tool or tools to use with this product. I'm thinking of using this to refinish a concrete step. The standing push squeegee seems overkill.

Answer: 
While I used a long handled squeegee for large areas, I found an windshield squeegee (Model # 972050, Store SKU # 1000018529), available at HD for $3.88, to be convenient for smaller jobs or tight areas.

Answer: 
A squeege is good if you're trying to go to a feather edge. Otherwise a board works fine. Another tool that I think is essential is a paddle mixer for your electric drill.

A rubber squeegee is the proper application tool. Flexible, not rigged.

Answer: 
Although the Sakrete Flo-Coat TDS gives the coverage as 18 sq ft at ¼” depth and 72 sq ft at 1/16” depth, that is for a 40-lb bag. The coverage for this 20-lb pail would be HALF of that--or 9 sq ft at ¼” depth and 36 sq ft at 1/16". In fact, the actual label directions on the 20-lb pail I purchased give the coverage for 1 pail as 9 sq ft at ¼” depth.

Answer: 
It can be used on stair treads. But it would be difficult, since this is a flowable material, for it to be applied to the risers. It would have to be very thin or the material would sag. There is a very nice community answer on this question that is spot on. Just wanted to give that person credit for a really good answer.

Answer: 
I have used the product before on short flights of concrete steps, so they would match the adjacent concrete porch and concrete walkway. The difficulty will be in keeping the material from slumping on the risers, since it is actually designed for use on horizontal or near-horizontal surfaces, like walks, driveways, and patios. On the risers, you will likely have to squeegee it down to a very thin coat, Read More

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product. End result is very good, but be careful with how much water to add. The instructions on the pail said add 5 quarts which I did and it was double the amount of water required. Fortunately I ordered 2 pails of flocoat so I was able to mix it properly, liquid enough to spread evenly but not watery or soupy. End result is great. July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slow set - easy to use. This product worked well for me. I've used other bag resurfacers, but always had trouble getting them to spread well. This stuff went down smooth and easy. I suspect the difference is that this is not a quick set product. The longer cure time makes it easier to work with, but you're not going to be laying tile on this stuff in 4 hours! Perhaps the steps I used will be of help to others. First, I checked the area to be patched with a straight edge - high spots were chiseled away. I cleaned the area with a shop vac, then wet it thoroughly. I covered the wet area with plastic and let it soak for about 4 hours. Just before mixing the product, I removed the plastic and blotted up the standing water with an old bath towel. I measured out about 60 oz of water, put a paddle mixer in my electric drill, and went to it. The 60 oz is slightly over the recommended amount - when I use this product again I'll use the recommended 56 oz. It didn't take long to get things smooth. Be sure to go around the sides of the tub as well as across the bottom to avoid any unmixed spots - it's tough to remix after you dump it onto the floor. For spreading, I used a 3 ft length of scrap wood rather than a squeege (didn't have a long squeege). A squeege would probably work better, particularly if you were trying for a feather edge in some areas. One mistake I made was trying to distribute the product by pouring selectively from the bucket. The material tends to settle in the bucket pretty quickly, and the first part of the pour ends up watery. Better is to just dump it one pile and then spread it - mix as you go, all the same. This would give a more uniform spread. Anyway, I'll use this stuff in the future. I'll leave the quick set stuff for the pros who don't want to come back the next day to finish the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Addictive great product I tried the 20LB Flo-Coat resurfacer on my cracked backyard concrete surface over the weekend. The treated surface was about 4'x4' and I thought the 20LB bucket was enough for the job?! The mixing, applying was so easy and straightforward and I wonder what kind of special compound Sakrete put in there to make it to flow so smoothly. After I was half way through the job then I realized that I need to get another bucket to get it done....I later checked it on Sakrete website using their calculator/estimator and found out I do need about 2 buckets to treat the specified area. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of pre-cleaning the surface in order to get the best result. December 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wasted time I used this product to level a part of a concrete basement floor. I followed the directions to a t. The completed surface was level but it did not bond to the existing concrete and it cracked. The entire surface sounds hollow when I tap it. I have to remove it and use another product. $60 and a night's work for nothing. December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did a great job for our porch and steps Great product that made our front steps and porch look like brand new. We used concrete patch for the sides because it was a thicker product. However for the re-finishing of the top of the steps and porch it was a great product. Our porch and steps were pitted and looked bad. we used one bucket of this and one bucket of the sakrete concrete patch. So like 30 bucks in all plus a trowel. Not a bad alternative to the quotes we got from some companies to replace all of it for $800 plus. April 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for small spots I needed to resurface a small patch of concrete (about 20 sq ft). This stuff was great... mixed easily, poured easily, dried smooth and level with no apparent marks or major imperfections. Dont overstir the mix and you'll add bubbles and have to pay closer attention when it sets to avoid tiny pocks. Overall a great product, although very expensive per square foot. July 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good product but expensive The product worked well, but it didn't cover the area it said it would. We ended up using 3 times the amount we had thought we would use. May 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not enough coverage for the cost At 20 bucks a bucket, this is simply not cost effective. I am resurfacing my walkway on the side of my house, and I bought 2 of these buckets....now I have two small areas that look great, but there is no way I will spend the $200 bucks more to cover the rest of the walk. The instructions say it will cover so much more area than it really does. July 28, 2012
