Stamped colored concrete is beautiful – no doubt about it. It is expensive to install and many people who buy a home with stamped concrete already there have no idea how expensive it is to install or how to care for it when they do have it.
If you are thinking about selling your home and you have stamped decorative concrete, it would be a very useful thing to include care instructions in a book that you present to the new owner. And as a potential new owner of a previously lived-in home, it would be a good thing to request (perhaps demand would be a better word) a manual with care instructions on all the appliances and other items in the home you are about to own. We talk to people every day who have purchased homes (some even new homes) and do not receive information on how to care for stamped colored concrete. For that matter, they do not receive care instructions on how to care for their regular concrete. Why is that?? Is it because people don’t believe that concrete needs care? We need to change that perception.
Concrete of any type – stamped, colored, plain – located anywhere – driveway, patio, basement, entry, walkway, garage, monuments – needs care. Concrete is expensive to install and stamped concrete is VERY expensive to install. Learn today how to care for your concrete and it will serve you well. Don’t be like so many people and wait until problems show up before you do something. You change the oil in your car before the engine light comes on – clean and seal your concrete BEFORE the cracks, pits and pops show up. For more information on concrete damage click….
