As we’ve mentioned before on this blog, maintaining your pattern imprinted concrete driveway is important. It’ll ensure the longevity of the driveway, and make sure that it stays visually appealing. And the one sure fire way to maintain your driveway is to have it resealed. This should ideally be done every two years or so, with five years being the suggested maximum gap between reseals.
People can do their own reseals, and you can buy sealant in some retailers and online. But we also offer a reseal service, with a guarantee that the job will be completed to the same high standards of all of our pattern imprinted concrete driveway installations.
Resealing a pattern imprinted driveway doesn’t take very long, but it does need to be completed during dry weather. The aim or resealing is to protect your pattern imprinted concrete driveway against water and other environmental factors. So if a driveway that’s had sealant freshly applied to it gets rained on, it can compromise the effectiveness of the sealant.
Moisture getting trapped between the surface of a pattern imprinted concrete driveway and the sealant applied to it can lead to problems like blooming, which mar the appearance of the driveway. That’s why we try to organise all of the reseals that we do for our customers during the summer months. And, if you’re planning to reseal your own driveway, we’d suggest that you do the same.
