Imprinted Concrete Sealing
There are many properties across Gloucestershire that have imprinted concrete driveways or patios. What many homeowners do not realise is that these concrete surfaces should be re-sealed every few years to keep them looking like new. If this is not done, the hard wearing concrete can start to deteriorate over time and problems can start to occur which can be difficult to rectify.
We can pressure clean and seal imprinted concrete driveways and patios in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Ross-on-Wye. Sometimes we have to re-colour the concrete as well, because it may have lost a lot of the original colour over time due to wear and tear and lack of re-sealing.
Imprinted concrete has become very popular in recent years mainly because it is a very durable surface and does have the same weed growth problems that seem to be ever-present with block paved surfaces. Imprinted concrete comes in many different patterns, some of which can be quite slippery in the wet or on a slope. If necessary we can mix an anti-slip additive with the sealer to make the sealed concrete less slippery in the wet.
The process for re-sealing and restoring imprinted concrete is outlined below:
- Pre-treat concrete with 'moss clear' to kill off moss spores
- Pressure clean the surface of the concrete to remove dirt and grime
- Carry our repairs to cracks and broken areas of concrete
- Re-seal the imprinted concrete with 2 coats of concrete sealer
- Add colour tints to sealer if necessary
- Add anti-slip agent to concrete sealer if required
- Leave to dry (approx 4 hours)
The whole process of cleaning and sealing imprinted concrete in Gloucestershire can be done over two days. Most imprinted concrete surfaces look like new once we have finished the restoration process.
