Routine Maintenance

 Like conventional plain concrete, stamped concrete will provide decades of service when properly sealed and maintained, even when exposed to harsh winter weather conditions. In some cases, stamped concrete can be even more durable than standard concrete, especially if a dry-shake color hardener has been applied to the surface. For general cleaning, follow the recommendations given for plain concrete.

Special Care Requirements

If the stamped surface begins to dull or lose its sheen after time, recoating with sealer will usually restore the luster. Ask your installer to recommend the best sealer type to use.

On outdoor stamped concrete, avoid using deicing salts, especially during the first winter after the pavement is installed. (Read more about the effects of deicing salts.)
