So you’ve decided to use stamped concrete as the flooring material of your outdoor surface. Even though stamped concrete is very durable, there are some things you can do to help prolong the integrity of it.
- On outdoor stamped concrete, avoid using deicing salts, especially during the first winter after the pavement is installed. Sealers for decorative concrete often fail in areas where deicing salts are applied or that receive drip-off from parked cars.
- If the stamped surface begins to dull or lose its sheen after time, recoating with sealer will usually restore the luster. Please give us a call and we can assist you in picking the right sealer.
- On stamped interior floors subject to lots of foot traffic, it’s especially important to maintain the sealed surface to prevent wear patterns. Application of a sacrificial floor wax or polish can provide extra protection by protecting the sealer from wear and serving as a shock absorber to scuffs, scratches and grime.
