I am writing this article not to bash Thompsons sealer but it has its place and it is not to reseal stamped concrete. Getting more and more emails about problems associated with homeowners using it over there pure acrylic resin based sealers with plain pure acrylic or stironated acrylic. Will not work.
As a matter of fact once on, will not come off with any stripper like Zep degreaser, Are you kidding. Home Depot and Lowe’s to name a couple of big chains sell it continually to customers. Trust me once used game over . You might get lucky once and I get homeowners want to save a buck since it’s hard to find people to reseal properly even those who in some cases install stamped concrete.
We have developed over 33 years of installing and repairing stamped concrete a method of resealing that is foolproof.
I don’t respond to inquiries here since I can not follow all the questions asked through word press I can be contacted at Ted@split-rok.com where I can help if needed. This can be a costly mistake if you do not heed this warning.
Also beware not to use water based sealers over resin based sealers. Resealing it might sound odd but it’s not as easy as it might seem. Use the right product and you get the best results.

Its that time of year when you walk in your yard or look at your stamped concrete driveway and see it needs to be resealed. You go to Google and type in resealing stamped concrete and a list of contractors comes up or you get some company selling you on the idea that its a do it yourself project.
At one time it was until multiple types of sealers showed up. Pure acrylic, stironated acrylic and water based sealers like that sold by Home Depot. None are cross compatible and putting one over the other can cause a costly problem that is not easily rectified other then removal of all sealer and reapplying the correct VOC approved sealer.
The other caveat is hiring someone who has little or no experience with the proper application of sealers. Once paid and problems occur they are either unavailable or have no clue how to correct the problem.

I am writing this article to make a case for paying a bit more for your Stamped Concrete or other Decorative Products.
We have recently been repairing many bad stamped concrete jobs done by others due to our 30 plus years of experience. Haven’t found many that I can’t repair unless so bad that removal and replacement is the only option.
Low price will generally guarantee poor quality do to cost cutting by the installer to get the job. The sad part is that low strength concrete, lack of proper reinforcing, poor crack prevention due to lack of control cuts, poor coloring process, poor base and poor sealing application
Sadly the problems don’t show up until the check has cleared or after the first winter freeze when cracks will appear, peeling surface or whitening of sealer. These are but a few issues.
We have recently resealed two of our projects one from 1992 the other from the year 2000 both with no cracks. The one from 1992 even blows me away.
If you were to breakdown the cost over the lifetime of the job and added in the resale appeal I think that even paying $1000 more would be a great investment since stamped concrete will outlast pavers consistently if maintained properly. Resealing in most cases is all that is needed.
Please be advised that after all these years in business that it still amazes me that some Stamped Concrete Contractors have no integrity. It’s not always about the money. You either love doing this or you don’t!
