Should I Seal My Stamped Concrete?
By Tina Sherrick - April 11, 2019
Stamped concrete is a beautiful upgrade to any outdoor living space. One of the most frequently asked questions about stamped concrete is whether or not to have it sealed. Below are a few reasons why we recommend having your stamped concrete project sealed:
- Adding a sealer to your stamped concrete will enhance the color. Instead of a dull color, you could have a rich, vibrant color.
- When you add a sealer, you add a protective layer to your concrete. This layer helps to prevent harmful chemicals (such as fertilizers), grease, wine, leaf stains, or calcium build-up (in the water) from staining your concrete.
- The sealer prevents color-fading by blocking out the UV rays that are constantly beating down on the concrete.
- Another bonus is that adding a sealer makes it much easier to clean dirt, spills, and dust on the surface of your concrete.
