  • Project Completed In: 4 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 770 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    We had a front walkway and back yard patio poured about 12 years ago. Both had worn badly and lost all color.
    The front walkway we wanted darker, so we decided on charcoal for the color. The walkway is approx. 260 sq. ft.
    We power washed, applied one coat of light charcoal antiquing stain, then went over it with dark charcoal for the second coat, followed by two coats of the acrylic satin sealer.
    Total labor time was about 8 hours.
    For the back patio, it was just as worn as our walkway, but we had put in a small paver walkway this year leading to it and the pavers had a mix of grey and auburn, so we decided to match the pattern.
    The patio is about 510 sq. ft. We first power washed, then took a foam brush and stained random sets of blocks with the auburn antiquing stain. When that was complete I sprayed the entire patio in light charcoal, trying to not overspray the auburn blocks. The Auburn only needed 1 coat because we didn’t want it too dark.
    The light charcoal we did 2 coats and finished off with two coats of the satin acrylic sealer.
    Total labor for the patio was approx. 10 hours.
  • Personal Tips:
    When using a sprayer for the sealer, it’s good to go over with a foam roller, if you are covering stamped concrete.
    The sealer will pool in the seams and if there is too much can bubble. Also find a good way to clean out the sprayer, because after the 2nd coat, our sprayers wouldn’t work.
