the manufacturer's specifications and use a quality UV protectant
sealer. For maximum durability, the sealer should be reapplied
every 2-3 years, depending on general wear and traffic.

No, provided you maintain the sealer. A good sealer is the
key to protecting your concrete from ice and deicing salts.
What are the advantages of stencil concrete
versus brick, stone, tile, and so on?
Stenciled concrete can be reinforced to serve any structural
need or purpose. Stenciled concrete offers the option of multi-colored,
patterned, and textured designs to compliment the existing
structure. It is a lower cost, lower maintenance product.
What are the advantages of stenciled
versus stamped concrete?
Stenciled concrete produces a more realistic appearance, comparable
to brick, stone, tile, etc. Stenciled concrete produces a
surface that contains the texture of brick, stone, or tile,
and includes a reaistic grout line, all in a one-step application.
Is stenciled concrete difficult
No. Although it does require more steps than broomed concrete,
the process is quite easy.
Are there specifics for the concrete
mix design and sub-base preparation?
No. The concrete should be mixed to whatever your area requires.
However, there are some add-mixtures which are very helpful,
such as mixtures to increase life of the concrete, workability,
and other things. Please contact your concrete producer about
the products. If you have any questions please contact us.
Does the stenciled concrete crack?
Stenciled concrete is no different than plain concrete when
it comes to cracking. You will need to take the same measures
to prevent cracking as you would when pouring plain concrete.
