Sealing Concrete Patios Every Few Years is Vital

So, you’ve invested in a premium stamped concrete patio, pool deck, or outdoor living area. It’s beautiful and you’re over the moon about how it looks and wears. The compliments from visitors are constant. How do you keep the beauty and overall life of your stamped concrete pool deck, patio, entryway, walkway alive? Resealing your outdoor concrete areas every few years is the answer.

The reason you need to reseal is that the original sealer will begin to underperform over time due to freeze/thaw cycles in the winter, overall exposure to the elements, and everyday wear from foot traffic. Sealing your concrete patio will protect it and keep the original beauty alive for many years. Here’s a list of reasons why a resealing is necessary to preserve your investment.

#1 – Sealing preserves the beauty of your original concrete patio.

Resealing by a quality concrete contractor like CONCRETE DOC+, a division of Gruttadaurio Masonry, will help keep the beauty of your stamped concrete outdoor living area from losing its vibrant color and help protect it from dulling and fading. Every few years, if you notice that your stamped concrete doesn’t have the same vibrancy as it did when you first had it installed, or water doesn’t bead up on the surface any longer, it’s time to reseal it.

#2 – Sealing provides protection from harsh weather conditions.

Areas of the country that experiences harsh winters can benefit from sealing concrete patios, concrete pool decks, or other outdoor living areas. Freeze and thaw cycles caused by extreme cold can cause damage like surface flaking and cracking. This can happen when water seeps into the surface of your concrete and expands as it freezes. Resealing will help keep water from penetrating into your concrete.

In hot sunny weather, color fading can happen when exposed to UV rays. So, if you concrete is located in an area that receives constant sun, resealing will help keep the color alive.

#3 – Proper sealing will help protect your concrete from surface staining.

Resealing your stamped concrete can also prevent it from stains that can occur such as dirt and leaves that remain on the surface for an extended period of time, pet accidents, accidental spills from liquids that contain a high amount of pigment, chemicals such as chlorine, and more. Resealing your concrete can help protect it from these types of stains.
