With more and more patterned imprinted concrete drives and patios being laid these days it comes as no surprise that the demand for the restoration of these surfaces has increased significantly. Imprinted concrete is a popular choice of the surface with homeowners as it is very durable and perceived as a low maintenance ‘weed free’ surface. It also has a protective sealer applied when it is first laid and can look great as a feature to a home. However, the protective concrete sealer will wear down due to the use it gets like any other external hard surface. Regular maintenance is important to keep imprinted concrete surfaces looking their best. If the concrete is not resealed every 3-5 years it can start to look ‘tired’ and patchy as the surface starts to wear. The original colours can also start to fade over time and the surface of the concrete can then look patchy and worn if regular maintenance of the concrete is not undertaken.
Imprinted concrete sealing is what many homeowners with imprinted concrete driveways and patios in Glasgow are now searching for online. The good news is that we can offer to clean, seal and recolour residential driveways and patios laid with imprinted concrete in Glasgow.
To ensure imprinted concrete stays something like new we recommend re-sealing it every 3-5 years. This will help protect the surface from colour loss from damaging UV sunlight as well as general wear and tear. Although some homeowners in Glasgow will have a go at DIY imprinted concrete sealing most prefer to use a professional company to help keep their driveways and patios looking like new. Our process for cleaning and sealing imprinted concrete is usually done in 4-5 stages as detailed below.
• Pressure clean the surface and leave to dry
• Remove oil stains if present with oil stain remover
• Carry out any repairs to cracks and holes
• Apply two coats of imprinted concrete sealer with colour tint if required
• Add anti-slip to the final coat of concrete sealer before applying
As a Smartseal registered installer, we always use Smartseal imprinted concrete sealer as it is highly protective and long-lasting. Furthermore, we normally apply two coats of sealer to provide a water-resistant seal and keep the concrete looking like new. However, if the concrete is in really poor condition, additional coats of imprinted concrete sealer and colour tints may be required to restore it to something like its original condition.
