  • Brain Picking Time...

        But you said you wanted to keep busy - annual jetwashing is better than a gloss on concrete finish surely? :niddy

                  I2D get you with "natural look". Hubby is a brickie and says jet wash but carefull wirh the joints so as not to wash them out.
                  if you do it today and you like it you can always do it again tomorrow

                    I jet washed all of our gravel boards yesterday in preparation for new fence coming next week, I have a Nilfisk machine that replaced a Karcher, very good machines and I would recommend them in a flash.

                    I got soaked to the skin but always gives a sense of satisfaction when it's done.
