Making an Attractive Patio out of your existing Concrete
Nothing adds value like staining and sealing your stamped concrete. Illustrated above is a stamp concrete patio that is faded and not an attractive color. The client said they rarely went out on the patio because it was ugly and notably an undesirable place to retreat. Upon restoring this patio, the wife said we are buying all new patio furniture and make up for the lost years out here.
This patio, was pretty blasé, the wrong color and had very shallow or nonexistent joint that provide the flagstone pattern. So we stripped the existing sealer off with a stripping agent. We then used a four-inch right angle grinder and a diamond crack chaser tool to bring out the superficial and faint joints that made up the flagstone pattern. We then applied an Exterior Concrete Dye in Walnut to bring out a warm earthy look of Colorado and sealed with a High-End Acrylic Sealer with UV Inhibitors for longevity.
The difference is amazing and this patio is now a truly inviting place to entertain! Here at Concrete Restoration System, we find that every project has its own uniqueness and character that we build on! That is why we can say that no two projects we do are the same.
