To Bond or not to Bond

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
Rich, if you do decide to bond, surface prep is the key. And be prepared for restraint to shrinkage as the topping dries, cures, and curls. Joints may be a help. An unbonded overlay at 2 inches is a bit thin, especially if it cycles wet-dry in freeze environment............with road salt......
