Please Follow the Guidelines Below for the Best Results
Keep curb clean of any dirt for the first week as the sealer will be applied after 5-10 days.
Keep pets, children and objects away from the curb for at least 24 hours. It will be "hard" to the touch at this point, but still needs several days to a week to cure.
Sod laying, sprinkler work and landscape work can be started one week after installation; however, cautionmust be taken as shovels, picks and wheelbarrows can damage the curb for several more days while it is fully curing.
If you have a landscape contractor working for you, caution them about protectingthe curb from damage. If wheelbarrows are used for hauling rock over the curb, put a mound of dirt over it (6" deep) or build a ramp over the curb to keep the weight from cracking it. Never allow a tractor or truck to run over the curb.
If it begins to rain within 3 hours after we leave the job, try to cover the curb with plastic. Make sure sprinkler systems do not come on for at least 48 hours. Irrigation, backwash from pools, condensate lines or downspout drains can damage the curb if water is held behind it.
Efflorescence (white powder substance) can appear on occasion and does not look good on curbing. It is generated from water sprinkling systems and can also appear after a rainstorm. The intensity of efflorescence varies depending upon the type (hardness) of water and the volume of water that gets on the curb. Check your sprinkler heads while the system is on and try to adjust them tom minimize the amount of water spraying directly on the curb. If you have just planted sod and are watering frequently, efflorescence may appear more readily. Be patient, wait for lawn to get established, turn water off for a few days, then clean the curb after it dries. A solution of 50/50 vinegar and water with a light brushing will remove the efflorescence. You may have to do this a few times; eventually, the effloresce should go away.
Once in a while curbing with color in it may look "splotchy" for a few days while it is curing. This will go away as it cures and is not to be confused with effloresce.
If curbing is damaged we will come back and make necessary repairs; however, there is a $500 minimum charge for this service.
Cracking - concrete curbing like any other type of concrete can and will crack. We experience very little cracking in our products; Important to note: Repairs can be difficult to make in colored concrete. It is impossible to get a perfect color match. Sometimes the "cure is worse than the ill". A hairline crack is much less noticeable than a patch or discoloration in the curbing.
Damage to sprinkler lines, telephone wires, cable tv or other buried items by our equipment or personnel is not the responsibility of Curb Pros LLC.
Your curbing has a 5 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. It will be replaced at no charge if the materials we use or the way it was installed by our workmen causes defect.
