When in excellent condition, stamped concrete surfaces are gorgeous. Fortunately, superior products transform driveways, walkways, patios, pool decks, interior floors, and more. When professionally installed, this type of decorative concrete lasts a long time. However, if someone without the proper experience or training did the work or applied an inferior product, there is a good chance of needing stamped concrete repair prematurely.
If you find yourself in the situation of needing stamped concrete repair work done, it is essential that you turn to a professional. Most importantly, make sure the person you hire uses the right system. The best solution on the market today comes from Sundek in the form of SunRestore, which is revolutionizing the way that concrete surfaces get repaired.
One aspect of SunRestore that makes it unique is the fact that it can restore stamped concrete to new condition regardless of the damage involved. In other words, whether the surface has small imperfections or the concrete needs major rehabilitation, this same system produces outstanding results. Ultimately, SunRestore eliminates the need to have an existing patio, pool deck, driveway, and so on, ripped out and completely re-poured.
For stamped concrete repair on an indoor floor with only minor issues, the surface is first de-glossed and any flaky topping or sealer is removed. Next, SunEpoxy in your color choice gets applied. If necessary, the installer can adjust the coloration by using either SunDye or SunH2O. With that complete, Sundek Finish Coat Clear or EcoClear seals the concrete.
When it comes to a more significant degree of stamped concrete repair, the SunRestore system changes. For rehabilitation, the installer sands, grinds, or acid washes the surface, followed by fixing any minor surface imperfections. Then, a new color base with Sundek Finish Coat gets sprayed on. To achieve a specific design, the installer can apply SunDye or SunStain. Finally, Sundek Finish Coat or EcoClear seals the now restored stamped concrete surface.
