Product Care

Common questions about Maintenance
This is completely dependent on wear and tear, however we recommend a reseal every 2-3 years.
We apply expansion joints to the concrete when the concrete is installed, this helps prevent the cracking as much as possible. It is completely normal to have hairline cracks in the concrete as time goes on, this is due to the weight on the concrete and movement of the ground. If small hairline cracks do occur, this can be rectified with varnish and reseal which helps disguise.
Yes we provide a 10 year warranty on all of our Concrete Driveways and Patios, this is as we’re very confident in our work and offer the correct maintenance advice and packages for our customers - we recommend good maintenance on your concrete driveway or patio to prolong the look and quality.
All concrete driveways and patios are very low-maintenance, perhaps a jet-wash every 6 months will help keep your driveway clean and tidy but typically your driveway or patio should be virtually maintenance free.

Other

Other Common Questions
Some highly glossed finished can be slippy in ice and wet conditions, however we mix our varnish with ‘anti-slip’ to help prevent this as much as possible.
