Ladies and gents I'm seeking some advice if I may?
I have a triangular area to the side of my house which is earmarked for my kennels, but will also be for wheelie bins, ferrets, logs and shed. My current, wooden kennel is to be located here until it reaches the end of its life, and then I will be looking at the options for replacing it, probably with a mitton hall or modular system of some kind. The area is currently a mix of old tarmac, and hardcore, and I am in the process of digging it out and encircling it with Aco drains, which will be tapped into the sewer. I will be laying a decent, compacted sub base, but my question really is regarding the finishing and composition of the concrete. As I don't yet know the size and shape of my future kennel I would like to finish the "slab" with a washable, durable, grippy finish or seal if possible, something that will stand up to frost and hosing down. I've read past topics which have been a great help regarding the strength of mix, and re inforcing etc, and also a little on granolithic screeds. Could anyone recommend an additive, paint, resin or anything else which would do the job? So far the best I have come up with is protectakote but I know nothing about it and have never used it. The area is approx 2m wide at its narrowest, 5 m at its widest and 7m long. I'd be grateful for your thoughts, or any products which have worked for you. Thanks in advance.
