Care & Maintenance
Only use products recommended by Finishing Edge, Inc.
The following are instructions for resealing 12 month cured stamped concrete. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions on how to care for your stamped concrete.
- Rinse dirt/debris off of stamped concrete surface with a garden hose or pressure washer.
- Apply a small amount of liquid dish soap to surface and scrub with a push broom.
- Rinse well with a garden hose or pressure washer until there is no sign of soap suds.
- DRY surface completely by using a leaf blower or by waiting 24 hours to air dry.
- Important: Do not apply sealer to a damp/wet surface. Once the surface is completely dry, apply the sealer as follows:
- Stir in one jar of Anti-Skid material to a 5 gallon pail of sealer.
- Important: Apply sealer using a 3/8" nap roller only. Anti-Skid material will not transfer through a sprayer. Apply sealer in approximately 2' x 4' sections. This will ensure full coverage without missed spots. Keep stirring sealer while applying to keep the Anti-Skid suspended in the sealer.
- Sealer should be applied when air temperature is above 55° F. Best results will be obtained by applying sealer during cooler temperatures - fall and spring - or before 10 am and after 4 pm in summer months when surface temperatures should be under 90° F.
- A second coat can be applied after the first coat is tack free (not sticky to your touch). You should wait 24 hours before walking on the resealed areas.
- Your stamped concrete should be resealed every 3-5 years to protect your investment. One 5 gallon pail of sealer will cover approximately 750 sf.
