    This is some kind of paint. It cleans great, does not have sand in it, you do not slip on it when it is wet and how did they get that texture. I am guessing some type of trowel. I have had two customers ask if I can do this or know of someone who can.
    This is the first video.

    This is the second video and this is a more tradition type nonskid with sand mixed in it. A couple of customers would like to replace it with the stuff in the first video.

    It looks like it might be a type of epoxy.

    It's a troweld down stucko, or at least that's we call it around here. Usually used on walls.
    We use to hire a guy to install it on a few exterior walls and pillars on a few of our model homes.

    Its cool deck, the texture is the shotcrete underneath, the paint is usually an epoxy based coating.

    In the first video it looks the same as what I am doing to my mom's ceiling and walls. That texture pattern is called "knockdown". I do have a few questions if you don't mind.
    1) We're you using a porty for that job?
    2) What psi were you set at?
    3) What kind of cleaning agents?
    4) What's the normal going rate for something kike that?

    thanks in advance, Johnny

    Porty Yes it was a terminator 1200.
    Brand new and larger jets here. Max pressure now is about 1000-1100 psi and was defiantly maxed out here.
    We use shorebeast con d sol 2790. Works on the tile and grout about the same.
    I charge the same as tile and grout. 45 cents per square foot.
    If I was just pressure washing it would be much cheaper but we can not let the water go over the balconies here. Especially this time of year. We are in season and lots of people below.

    That's a lot of psi out of a porty. My Mytee M5 only goes to 500psi. When I saw how high up you were in the video, I sort of figured you were likely using your porty. Thanks, Johnny

    yea it has two pumps. 200psi and 1200 psi. Probably equivalent of the Mytee M12.

    Yea but I have a lift gate so weight was not a concern. You would have to have a ramp or gate to use this machine. I wanted the convenience of doing carpet and tile and grout in one machine. Worked out well considering how many of my customers have both. Balconies were kind of an after thought but it is the easiest up sale I do. I was worried about stairs at first but it has yet to be a problem. Condos are not generally two stories and residencies I use my truck mount. If I did not have a truck mount I would have probably got a water ottor and the m5. In my area everyone has a portable even if they have a truck mount. We have 10s of thousand of condo units.
