Just like an exterior wood deck, sealers for stamped concrete pool decks and patios should be reapplied every few years. This is a fairly simple project that will protect and restore your pool deck, patios and driveway.
A nice warm day is ideal for resealing. The process is to power wash the surface first, let dry, then apply 2 new coats. If you have a nice warm day, you can power wash in the morning and let the water naturally evaporate, then apply the seal coat, let dry and apply your second coating.
Sealers are typically sprayed on with special purpose pump sprayers. You can also use a roller and paint brush for edges, corners, around diving boards and ladders of pool decks. Solvent based acrylic sealers or acrylic modified polyurethane sealers are usually recommended for exterior concrete surfaces. While solvent based sealers have to be applied every other year acrylic modified polyurethane sealers last longer, say about 3 to 5 years.
For best long term results reapply sealers every 2-3 years. A non slip component can be applied to protect from slip and fall accidents.
If your surface needs repair , there are additional restoration options. When color has faded,, the old sealer can be removed and new colors applied. In most cases new sealers for stamped concrete and patios will restore your surface like new.
