Perez said that the key to success is not only mixing and applying the product properly, but always using a product you can rely on backed up by excellent technical support as needed.
Marvin Brandt of Foundation Contractors, the project's concrete contractor, stated that the quality of Cement All allowed them to save time.
"Cement All definitely accelerated the whole construction process from start to finish and therefore, saved us time and money," said Brandt.
In addition to using Cement All, CTS Cement's WunderFixx® product was used for all skim coating and detail work. This hydraulic cement is not only cost-effective, but when mixed and applied properly, it is very smooth. WunderFixx is sandable within the first 24 hours and paint can be applied in 16 hours.
Cement All is sold in 55-pound bags, 25-pound boxes, and 10-pound boxes. WunderFixx is sold in 50-pound bags and 9-pound boxes. Rapid Set products are available nationwide through contractor supply yards and home improvement centers.
The Promenade Shopping Center is expected to open this fall.
