Archive: Stamped concrete is one of the most durable and long lasting paving materials available and requires less maintenance than the materials it regularly replaces. Regular maintenance of cleaning and resealing stamped concrete should be done every 2 to 3 years on average, but will depend on the use the area is subjected to, car or foot traffic, chemicals, weather, etc. Basic cleaning with a garden hose or pressure washer, some mild detergent and a push broom is all that is needed before resealing. Color hardeners and sealers make the surface stronger, more resistant to abrasion, and help block the penetration of water, stains, dirt and chemicals. However, it’s still a good idea to remove oil, grease and other spills immediately.<br />Its quality and lifespan is directly dependent on the quality of materials used for the finishing.
