Actually all you need to do is apply another coat of step 3. The more coats of step 3 you apply the smoother the finish will be.

You should be able to. I did find that I needed to double up on step 2 of the application initially. I was also able to get some of the rough spots smoother with a file before I put down step 3. Try it on a spot to see how it works for you

Damaged concrete steps?

My concrete steps have developed many chips due to salt from the winter. Will this product be good for covering up the damage? Anybody have any experience with chipped/damaged concrete?

Use a cement patch/repair product first and then apply the Stone Effects. It would cost you a fortune in stone effects to fill all of the imperfections.

Depending on the size of the chips. You can fill with hi-bond premix mortar for any big holes.
This stuff will cover small chips, but is an expensive way to go.
Whatever you do be sure you seal the steps before next winter, so water cannot soak in.

I would like to use this product on the bottom of a fish pond. Was wondering if under long period of water would the resin leach into the water.

If it dose leach can it weaken the product or even be harmful to the fish in the pond

I wouldn't. Go to a pool/spa company and see what products they have specifically for underwater service.

This does not look like a submersible product to me. You'll need ti use an epoxy, and it needs to be specifically submersible.

I went ahead and used the roll-on product on my porch tiles after being thoroughly sanded and unfortunately it peeled right off after it dried 24 hours later so no, it is not good on tile...

Yes, this should cover tiles well, but be prepared to use several times the estimate for the step2 filler material.

How clean does the surface have to be before applying Stoneffects?

I've got thin and very difficult to remove spots of glue on my cement steps. Will the Stoneffects product adhere to this?

If the glue is already well bonded and rough on the top, this stuff will bond to it.

I had the same problem after removing ugly green carpeting from the steps and landing but using a razorblade (you can buy the blade at Cdn Tire and under $10) it came off pretty good. Step 1 of the system is a pretty decent primer and covers quite well, as does Step 2. Give the razorblade gadget a try first.

I've applied steps 1,2 but it rained before I could apply step 3

Step 1 and 2 had a good 2 days to dry out but before I could put on step 3 it rained, will this ruin all my progress?

I wouldn't think so since step 3 is the sealer but get it on as soon as you can and reapply it often.

Nope, just wait till it is dry again. Try not to get it dirty in the meantime.

That doesn't work - it lifts right next to your patch. You have to start over or do something different

Stone Effects does not lend itself well to patch-up work. A thin coat of product over the entire surface works best to restore the appearance of the surface. First, exise the bubbled, and/or peeling area, and clean the exposed concrete with a stiff bristle brush, and some warm water. Rinse well, and allow surface to dry. Next, scuff sand the entire surface with 100 grit sandpaper to abrade the Step 3 sealer. Clean away any sanding dust. Re-prime exposed concrete only, then 4 hours later, fill in the newly primed area with some Step 2 product, to make the area being repaired flush with the rest of the surface. You can then apply a very thin skim coat of Step 2 over the entire surface to even out the appearance. Allow the Step 2 material to dry 24 hours before re-sealing with Step 3. Apply a new coat of Step 3 every 2 years to ensure the surface is as water resistant as possible. Bubbles will happen when water has found a way under the finish. By re-sealing every other year, water stays out, and the finish stays beautiful.

Rustoleum Stoneffects

The parging on the bottom of my home is in bad shape and I am thinking of using this product to cover it up. Will it adhere to a vertical surface and how easy it is to apply?

The Rust-Oleum is a 3 step water-based system which is highly durable and impact resistant, and will withstand harsh weather and daily wear and tear. Make sure you follow the 3-step process and instructions closely to ensure proper application and adhesion. You may also want to visit the Rust-Oleum website to further investigate whether this sealant can be used on parging as it's truly intended for patios, walkways and porches. As for vertical application, it will adhere. Rust-Oleum website:

According to the manufacturer, Rustoleum Stoneffects can be used on pressure treated wood that is at least a year old. I would be careful applying to a wooden walkway that is too old and/or damaged however. Call the company and ask if you aren't sure.

Question

Rollable Stoneffects Step

Can I use the New Rollable Stoneffects to redo my countertop. I had poor results using this product to cover my countertop which required applying with a trowel. Reapplying step 3 for countertops should result in a beautiful looking countertop.

Yes you can:
1) prime the counter top with an appropriate primer (such as Zinsser or Kilz)
2) apply the VP
3) apply several coats of Varnish to protect the surface (the VP topcoat will not be enough on a counter)**
**note: by applying coats of Varnish over the VP it will lose its' soft sheen and feel.
