  • Project Completed In: 2 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 400 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    Started off with Colorado weather damaged concrete, typical freeze and expand pitting, and warn faded coloring and sealant due to the strong sun we have. Used the Direct Colors concrete patching compound and some concrete pigment to patch all the pitted areas. Used a pump sprayer to apply the antiquing stain, which went on easily and consistently. Applied the two coats of acrylic sealer and the color popped! My patio looks brand new. We are extremely happy with the outcome, easy application, and great look.
  • Personal Tips:
    When filling concrete pits with the patching compound, sand down the compound slightly before it’s solid, otherwise it’s almost impossible to sand down..
    When applying the acrylic sealer, let the weight of the saturated roller do the work. I personally found that rolling the roller back from the far end, let the sealer apply nicely.. Roll the roller nice and slow to prevent the acrylic sealer from bubbling as it dries.

Project Info:

  • Project Completed In: 4 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 2000 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    This is a 2000 sq ft stamped concrete entry that has not been maintained. Our goal was to bring the entry back to a consistent finish and seal it to improve it’s appearance. There was quite a bit of variation as some areas were covered and others exposed to full sun. Pressure washing had damaged some areas.
  • Personal Tips:
    We pressure washed the concrete first using a low pressure cleaner and then high pressure to remove any dirt and debris. We allowed it to dry for 24 hours. We chose to roll the antiquing stain as there was quite a bit of variation in the impressions. We used a 3/8″ roller cover being sure to get even coverage. We did allow some of the stain to settle into the recessed creating an attractive color enhancement. Let the roller do the work! We chose to do three coats to achieve uniform coverage. We then rolled the clear sealer. Again, we chose to do three coats which resulted in an amazing color effect and it also leveled some of the gritty areas. It’s an amazing change that took us three days. Keep the area as clean as you can but don’t worry about any small leaves or debris. It is easily removed before additional coats. We waited four hours between coats with temperatures in the high 70s. No issues with tracking or roller marks.

What is the approximate size of your project? 

800 sq. Ft. 

 

Which Direct Colors products did you use? Your order number will do, if you have it. 

Antiquing Stain DIY Kit 

Antiquing Stain in Driftwood 3 gallons 

Antiquing Stain in Cumin 3 gallons 

Acrylic Solvent Based Satin Sealer 11 gallons (very porous concrete with 3 layers) 

 

What other products did you use to complete your project? 

Pump sprayer 

Painter’s solvent (xylene not available in my state) for clean up and previous sealer stripping 

Power washer 

 

How long did your project take to complete? 

Longer than anticipated, which is where my tips come in to play 

1 week of stripping old sealer 

1 day for Direct Colors Cleaner and Degreaser and drying overnight 

3 days sealing 3 layers letting them each dry overnight (ran out of sealer and tarped off for 1 week before being able to apply more sealer in 2 more consecutive days) 

 

We would also love to hear any personal tips about your project that may help another Direct Colors customer do one of their own. 

“Make sure you have proper measurements, and buy extra sealer for extremely porous concrete.  It is better to have extra to have in the future to reseal than to run out and have to tarp off the project until you can get more. If you do not have to strip your old sealer, don’t!”

Charcoal, Fern Green, Driftwood & Russet Antiquing Stains on Stamped Concrete Patio
  • Project Completed In: 3 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 336 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    I made a stamped concrete patio, stamped to look like slate. I then used antiquing stain in 4 separate colors to stain each tile individually, then I put a top coat of charcoal to darken it all up. I then put one coat of the satin sealant followed by a final coat with the non slip powder.
  • Personal Tips:
    I used a brush to stain each square, then sprayed the charcoal top coat with a pump sprayer then rolled the sealer on after it was dry.
