Caring for your new Concrete
Week 1: After your concrete is installed, keep children, pets and anything heavy off the surface. You can walk on your freshly poured concrete after 24 hours.
Curing: After approximately 10 days your concrete will have cured enough to drive your vehicles on. During colder weather (below 50 degrees) a two week period should be given before driving on.
- A good acrylic, solvent concrete sealer should be applied the first two Autumns as concrete is most susceptible to salt damage in the first two years.
- To keep your concrete looking new, regular cleaning and sealing each year is recommended.
- For Stamped concrete, it is recommended that you seal yearly with a quality "high gloss" sealer. This will help protect and maintain its crisp and shiny look.
- Do not use any type of salt or chemical de-icers on your concrete. The effects can cause pitting and erosion.
