Residential Concrete Solutions
Cleaning and washing stamped concrete should be done on a regular basis just like any other home maintenance. The frequency will depend on how much traffic an area endures and the amount of sun and chemical exposure.
Concrete Authority recommends resealing your stamped concrete every 3-5 years. When you apply sealer, the color will return as vibrant as the day it was installed. Resealing will also protect your stamped concrete from water, sun, freeze/thaw, food or oil/grease damage.
When is it time to reseal?
- Has 3-5 years passed since installation?
- Do you notice a white haze?
- Do you have surface stains?
- Has your concrete become dull or the color faded?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, give us a call now for a free estimate.
For the Do-It-Yourselfer: Although we strongly recommend professional application, if you prefer to reseal yourself, please stop by to purchase everything you will need and receive detailed “how to” instructions at our UniqueKrete retail store.
We also offer Total Restorations. All of the old sealer is removed, through a mechanical blasting process we call Starblasting, utilizing a very fine soft particle that does minimal damage to the underlying concrete. This procedure would be used in situations where the old sealer has yellowed or whitened, requiring complete removal. Projects that have been starblasted may require re-antiquing or staining or a combination of methods to restore color and variation to the concrete. Starblasting, along with staining and re-antiquing, constitutes a Total Restoration of stamped concrete.
