How To Take Care Of Your Decorative Concrete

Hiring a concrete contractor to install a stamped concrete patio for your Nashville area home is becoming more common, and for plenty of great reasons. Having an outdoor living space gives you a place to host social gatherings, enjoy the great outdoors, and make use of your home beyond your four interior walls.

Using concrete means you’ll have a durable surface and opting for stamped concrete means it can be beautiful as well. Yet savvy homeowners want to know ahead of time, what type of care requirements are involved in the upkeep of this type of addition to your home.

Basic Patio Maintenance

One reason homeowners choose concrete is because the maintenance level requirements are minimal. You get a sturdy and beautiful finished product but don’t have to invest that much time or money into the upkeep.

  • Basic cleaning is as easy as a brush and a garden hose. This is a good idea to do once or twice a year and following any spills.
  • For more thorough cleaning, you can use a diluted cleaning agent or hire a pressure washer.
  • It takes about 24 hours for this surface to dry naturally or you can use a leaf blower to speed up the process.
  • Sealant is used during the installation in order to protect the surface from the elements, such as wind, dust, and UV rays. However, as with wood decks and other surfaces, sealant will have to be reapplied.

The amount of care required will depend on the amount of use your outdoor living space gets.
