Taking Concrete Surfaces To A Whole New Level
  • Outdoor Concrete Sealers: How Often Should They Be Reapplied?

    Concrete sealers to maintain a new look

    After applying stamped concrete to an exterior surface of your home, the expert will seal it. The primary benefit of outdoor concrete sealers is that they serve as a second layer of protection against oil, stains, deicing chemicals, antifreeze, and more. However, sealers also protect against hot tire marks, abrasions, and daily wear and tear. You will even find that keeping the surface clean becomes much easier.

    For the best results, you want to hire a Sundek installer or contractor with experience who uses top-quality products, like SunClear EcoProtect and SunClear UltraProtect. Along with the benefits mentioned, resealing a stamped surface will enhance the color and even maintain the integrity of the design, whether it is rock, brick, wood, slate, or something else.

    Resealing Schedule

    Just as with the initial application of outdoor concrete sealers, it is just as important to have the surface resealed. For stamped concrete, the most trusted source suggests resealing every two to three years. If the area receives a lot of foot or vehicle traffic, you should schedule resealing for each year to two years, while less-busy areas could probably go three.

    For enjoying all the benefits of resealing a surface with outdoor concrete sealers, the installer will apply the product at just the right level. If applied too thick, the sealer could puddle on the surface rather than penetrate it. Using a water-based acrylic sealer, that individual will also reapply the sealer in two coats. 

    Finding the Right Installer

    Because both the initial and follow-up applications of outdoor concrete sealers are so critical, when you search for a qualified professional for the project, make sure that person follows the appropriate schedule. Going by the recommended schedule is the best thing you can do for the stamped decorative concrete application.

    By having a driveway, walkway, patio, pool deck, or some other outdoor surface resealed on time, it will look amazing and provide you with many years of enjoyment, virtually maintenance free.

  • SPRUCE UP YOUR HOME WITH DECORATIVE CONCRETE RESURFACING IN MEMPHIS

    Concrete is a versatile material offering much more than flat gray slabs. Even if you have a concrete floor, sidewalk, driveway, or patio on your Memphis property, you can completely change it appearance and update your home through decorative concrete resurfacing.

This resurfacing is easy for the professionals at from Surface Scapes to complete and doesn’t require tearing up the existing concrete to get a new appearance.

     

    Understanding Memphis Decorative Concrete Resurfacing

     

    In decorative concrete resurfacing, a professional will take your pre-existing concrete and transform its appearance. There are several methods of resurfacing depending on the look that you want. In some cases, this will involve simply treating the surface with color or a stain. It may also involve adding a coating of some sort or adding a new layer of concrete in the form of an overlay. The common factor is that resurfaced concrete will have a top layer that is completely new and looks different.

     

    Methods to Use

     

    The resurfacing method your contractor uses will depend on the exact way that you want to change the current concrete. The professionals from Surface Scapes can apply an acid-based treatment that mimics leather, wood, or natural stone via acid etching or staining. This type of treatment is frequently combined with concrete dyes, which will add color to your concrete. If you want a specific pattern or design on your resurfaced concrete, we can spread a new layer of concrete and then stamp it in whatever pattern you like, including one that resembles natural stone or bricks. In the case of existing concrete with a solid surface, a resurfacing expert can even engrave it with a pattern you like to create the desired appearance.
