While wet pour playground surfaces should stay in good condition for a considerable time, they may still need repairs completed from time to time. In this brief guide, we’re looking at what to do if your wet pour playground surface needs repairs.
Is it possible to repair a wet pour surface?
If you see cracks appearing, or the wet pour surface is peeling away at the edges, you’ll be pleased to know that these can be easily repaired. Whether your playground has weathered over time or wasn’t installed as well as it could have been in the first place, it’s important to keep your wet pour surface smooth so that it’s safe to use. Aside from that, it’s nice to provide a space that’s inviting for the children and that encourages them to play and spend time outdoors.
You may have fun shapes and patterns in different colours within your surface. If the individual parts are separating or lifting away, this is not only unsightly, it’s also a trip hazard. With the right wet pour installer, this shouldn’t happen, however if this has become a problem in your playground, you should have the shape or border resurfaced.
If you’ve recently had apparatus removed from a wet pour playground, you’ll likely have gaps in the surface. A surfacing contractor should be able to seamlessly fill these gaps with smooth and colourful wet pour.
If your edges are peeling away, the base and top layer may need to be cut away and can be replaced with a colourful band.
