Repairing the Patio’s Cracks

Cracks in a patio’s paved floor are common, Danny says, but there’s a way to make that floor look almost new.
First, clean all the debris from the floor’s crevices. Then, use concrete resurfacer to repair the cracks and coat the patio.
For cracks, we use a trowel to force the material into the voids and smooth out the surface. Next, we pour the resurfacer over the entire patio and use a rubber squeegee to apply it evenly.
As the material thickens, Danny drags a broom across the surface to give it a skid-resistant finish.

Phantom Screens
Justin and Leah’s 6-foot opening is protected by screens that disappear completely when not in use.

Adding Retractable Screens

French doors leading into Justin and Leah’s home will receive Phantom Screens. These retractable screens, which are installed inside the doors, will allow the couple to get a nice breeze and blur the outdoor and indoor spaces.
The low-profile system we used mounts on the inside; two units meet in the middle so the whole 6-foot opening is protected by a screen that disappears completely when not in use.
