Imprinted concrete is probably the hardest-wearing surface for a driveway. The concrete is mixed and poured on-site and then whilst wet, is imprinted with a pattern via large mats and the chosen colour is put into the surface using Colour Surface Hardener.
When first laid the surface is sealed with a solvent-based sealer to protect and beautify the surface, leaving it with a damp-look sheen to bring out the colour. When sealed with a high quality sealant, this should last 3 to 5 years depending on weathering, sunlight and the level of vehicle traffic.
If left for too long, the colour can start to go out of the surface, leaving a patchy look. We can put the colour back by skilfully tinting the sealant with a colour tint, which are available in around 20 industry-standard colours.
