COST FOR PAVING STONE PARKING AREA?

Anything to do with prices. Raw material prices or prices for finished material (or labor such as well drilling). Project prices (how much will it cost??), etc.

Happy to help, so I'll carry on without you! Geordie: making a drive with washed concrete shouldn't be beyond the capabilities of most construction firms?

There is a chemical that you can spray on there that eats the cement off the surface wash with a hose next day job done nice if you can get a decorative agregate

Might be , but still i would not look at this option at this price , and looking what the alternatives are . To be attractive it has to go down to a pricelevel near equal of sandwash . After all it still is a concrete topping .

Taking about the picture above . The chemical is basically any acid but normally muriatic acid / hydrogen chlorid is used . Be careful when using it because it also likes to eat skin ( allthough it is not superdangerous ) .

CONCRETE SURFACE RETARDER FOR EXPOSED AGGREGATE

Concrete Surface Retarder is a spray applied chemical surface retarder that delays the set of the surface of concrete to create exposed aggregate finishes. Surface Retarder is often a water soluble, easily sprayable, non-flammable liquid and should be V.O.C. compliant

The main thing is to order the proper size stone. I had this done on all my driveways and foot paths at my last house in Canada. Retarder was strayed on after concrete was poured and just hosed down about four hours later exposing the aggregate. Price was near identical to standard concrete

Yes, hydrochloric acid - sometimes still called muriatic acid - (acide chlorhydrique, Saltzsäure) is generally used. It's cheap enough and comes in 25 drums, but it's often marketed under proprietary brands for a horrendous price, particularly by swimming pool shops where it is sold for balancing the water chemistry. Always uses gloves and eye protection when handling it, and don't breathe the fumes.

Yes, about once a week. Have you got any (small) space in your container?
