I just keep saying to myself, 'Man, this stuff is tuff.' And then I laugh because that is its name. When you first apply this, you think it won't set up as strong as it does. The warnings about not applying in direct sunlight are no doubt because it begins to set up quickly and then you end up messing up the partially set up area. You'll see...it isn't all that big a deal, but hot sun doesn't give you much time to work. Unless you are going to apply it at night, you will end up experiencing this.
The product is fantastic. It becomes almost flexible concrete. It is difficult to get it off your tools, but who cares.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Slugger Looks awesome!
This coating is thin so it's a little difficult to handle since you can't get that much on the trowel. It's going to take me quite a while to finish my entire foundation, but it's going to look wonderful! So far I've only worked on it an hour or so and completed an eight foot section, but already have had many complements. It does set up really fast, so make sure you get it the way you want it to look very quickly. I'm a 58 year old female, so if I can do it anyone can!

We are using on our basement. We have foam insulation boards on the outside of concrete. We were looking for something to cover and protect the foam. This looks great and concrete gray matches our home, would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to touch up or on a new project.

The product went on well, hardened quickly and resulted in a very hard and durable coating. It took some experimenting and practice to achieve an acceptable finished however. We used the STYRO Heavy Duty Sticky Mesh over 2 inches of the Owens Corning 250 pink foam and applied two coats of this TUFF II over the Sticky Mesh. Although the application was a struggle a first, I was impressed at the extreme hardness of the finished coating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made2doitright Making a bad foundation look good
When covering block that has been tooled between the blocks, you will need to trowel it on twice to make the joints disappear. I recommend going over it once troweling the Tuff II in only the joints with the first coat because it does shrink when it cures. The next day, do the entire wall surface and most joints will have disappeared. We sprayed on a final coat, diluted as recommended with water so it would come out of the texture hopper nicely. It looks great!! And, the finished look made the house worth far more than the cost of the material.
If you're applying it in warm weather, and want to get a smooth look, you will need to work relatively fast. You can't rub a damp sponge in circles like you can with a mortar stucco; you have to pat it gently with the damp sponge and sometimes dab a little fresh Tuff II on stubborn areas..
Make sure the walls have been acid and pressure washed well and dry before applying.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank WORKS GREAT!
I used this this product to re-due a concrete foundation that had stucco flaking off. I first scraped all the loose old stucco off and then simply applied the tuff II using a sheet rock mud taping knife, doing about 3 feet at a time and then using a 6" mason brush dipped in water I put a swirl finish in it.. it looks great and went on easy. It only took one coat to cover nicely. Note: do not apply in direct sunlight. Great product
