STAMPED CONCRETE MAINTENANCE TIPS
Like conventional concrete, stamped concrete will provide decades of service when installed and maintained, even when exposed to harsh winter conditions.
Maintaining Stamped Concrete
Routine Maintenance Advice for Stamped Concrete
In some cases stamped concrete can be even more durable than standard concrete because a colour hardener has been added to the surface. The hardener does more than simply impart colour, it also makes the surface stronger, more resistant to abrasion and water penetration. We have also applied a coat of protective sealer to your stamped concrete to block the penetration of dirt, de-icing chemicals, oil and grease stains, and other substances. Concrete Design Team’s quality sealer not only makes the concrete easier to clean, it offer other benefits, such as enhancing the colour and preventing fading from UV exposure.
But even our properly sealed stamped concrete will require a little routine maintenance, depending on exposure conditions and the type and amount of traffic it receives. Here are some tips for cleaning and treating your stamped concrete to preserve its beauty and extend its service life.
