Sealing in the Color

Sealing colored concrete will not only protect it from stains and weather exposure, it will also enhance the beauty of the concrete by bringing out the color. Look at the photo and how much richer and bolder the color looks after being sealed.

Here are a few things to consider before sealing your concrete:

  • Do you want a clear sealer with shine or a matte finish? Certain stamps look good shiny while others you want a more subdued look.
  • Do you want to use a tinted sealer that matches the color of the existing colored concrete and makes the colors more vibrant?
  • Do you want the concrete to be more slip-resistant? We have a product specifically for wet (pool decks) or high traffic areas.
  • Is the sealer compatible with the type of coloring system used? You don't want a sealer that will turn yellow.

Pressure washing and sealing your colored concrete should be done on a regular basis, just like any other home maintenance. The frequency will depend on how much vehicle and foot traffic the pavement receives and the exposure conditions to weather, chemicals, and pets. The benefit of diligent maintenance will be beautiful colored concrete that looks good for years after it was installed. Summit Concrete does a great job sealing their projects and can also help you maintain it for years to come.
