Here at Fuller Concrete Staining, we’re addressing some frequently raised questions regarding the sealing of stamped concrete driveways. Should you require further information, reach us at 310-944-9099.

Why Should One Seal a Stamped Concrete Driveway?

Though concrete is robust, it’s also porous, making it susceptible to absorption of any substance spilt on it. By sealing the driveway, it becomes resistant to substances like oil, water, and other vehicular fluids, which could seep into and tarnish or even damage the surface and the structure.

What Kind of Sealant is Most Suitable?

The choice of sealant relies on several factors, including whether you desire a glossy or matte finish. Our team will collaborate with you to identify your specific needs for sealing the concrete and assist in picking the perfect sealant. Regardless of the choice, the sealant will be a penetrating one, offering superior protection by penetrating beyond the concrete’s surface.

What Preparations Are Required Before Sealing the Driveway?

You simply need to clear the driveway of any vehicles or objects. Our team will undertake a thorough cleaning of your driveway before proceeding with staining or sealing. It’s crucial to allow the driveway to dry fully, and if needed, we’ll do an additional sweep before beginning.

What’s The Cost for Sealing a Typical Stamped Concrete Driveway?

Several factors influence the cost of sealing, including the total area that needs sealing, the choice of sealing product, and whether you want a stain application beforehand. For an accurate estimate, it’s best to reach us at 310-944-9099.

Can Driveways Be Sealed at Any Time?

We generally refrain from sealing driveways during peak summer heat. The early morning or evening hours are ideal. Additionally, we’ll review the weather predictions to confirm there’s minimal to no rainfall expected for 24 hours before and after the sealing process.

How Frequently Should a Driveway Be Sealed?

Most driveways need a new seal every two to three years. Between sealing applications, keep your driveway clear of debris as much as possible and promptly clean up any oil, solvents, or chemicals that spill on it.
