Four Reasons to Stain Your Concrete Patio
If you are not yet sure if you should stain your concrete patio, let us share four reasons that it is a good idea:
- It is a great way to add beautiful colors and styles, including a sense of depth to the concrete.
- It lasts for many years and is entirely renewable – when you want to re-stain it, we can add a stain right over the current stain.
- It is one of the most efficient options out there. In fact, we can often get jobs done in just two days.
- It’s much more affordable than you might think – especially when compared to how much it would cost to replace the concrete.
These are just a few of the reasons that concrete staining makes so much sense.
Concrete Sealing Helps Protect Your Concrete in the Long Run
Once you have stained your concrete, you will want to seal it. If you leave it bare, it will be vulnerable to abrasion as well as issues like water, oil, or chemicals that might come into contact with it. This can cause the concrete to look worn down, and dusty well before it needs to be re-stained. Sealers make your concrete less absorbent, so stains are much less likely.
You Have Options in Concrete Sealants
Generally speaking, we will apply a commercial-grade sealer that comes with a satin finish. This will result in a great look that is not too glossy. However, if you do want a high-gloss seal, we can provide that by request. There are also concrete sealers that will not change the look of your patio at all. We can go over all the options so you can find the right one for your home.
Your Sealant is Renewable
As is true of the stains we use, our sealants are renewable. What does that mean for you? It means that when it is time to stain and seal your concrete again, we can do it without the time and expense required of stripping off the old products. If you use wax or over-the-counter products, you will likely need to strip those before you can re-do your concrete, and they are therefore non-renewable.
