I have a concrete step on my front porch which had surface deterioration a few years ago. I resurfaced with special mortar that was for doing thin layers. I prepared the old surface with an acyrlic bonder. This job did not last very long. The new concrete separated from the old. This time I am thinking about adding some wire grill to hold the new surface together. I want to bend the wire grill 90 degrees and run it down the riser, since that portion is also deteriorated. Is this a good idea?

L O W E ' S sells a concrete resurfacer. It says you can drive on it in 24 hours. Walk on it in 8 hours. Quickrete makes it. A bag costs @ $25 and covers @90 sq ft. It only requires 1/16 of an inch. This is straight from Sunday's ad in the newspaper.

Has anyone ever used it and can you drive on like it says? It seems like an inexpensive fix. Instead of replacing the entire driveway.
