you can keep repairing it but dick's advice is the most sound,,, all that's been mentioned is our work & some can't be saved ( think lipstick & PIG ! )

to our mate in the land of oz, lighten up on the self-promo's,,, most everyone knows about polymer-modified cements & o'lays,,, for the most part, epoxies are a no-no in the sun, too !

If I need a pro whats the going rate per sqft?

Thank you!
There is a company in Las Vegas called Pebblestone Coatings. They install epoxy with the pebbles in it. I've seen their work done on a driveway down the street from me and it looks great. I had an estimate done but am waiting to save some money for this project. I would give them a call. It's not cheap but it looks great and I'm going to eventually go with it because they offer a warranty on it and I don't want to have the issues like you are having with the skim coat surface.

I've seen hundreds of post over the years on all the DIY sites from people asking what to do when it all starts peeling off.

A family member had this done on an outside patio. It requires upkeep and maintenance. I would not recommend for a driveway that is exposed to elements, especially if budget is consideration. This would be nice for garage interior or covered patio.
