    We purchased a 10 year old home a few years ago in NM with a stamped, stained concrete entry (and partial-driveway).  It looked weathered then and has deteriorated since.  A few weeks ago, the stain began flaking in many areas.  I had two different contractors come by for a "free" estimate to refinish.  One contractor said I needed to rip out all the concrete and replace...to the tune of $7300+.  No thanks.  The other guy gave me a vague $3K quote.  Both told me the current stain is WATER-BASED because of the flaking (and bare concrete underneath).  As a DIYer, I'd like to tackle this myself.
    I used my pressure sprayer and so far have cleared a bit of the color (and whatever sealant remains), as the pictures show.  Near the house, in the shade, the color and wet-look is fine, but still needs to be resealed.  Otherwise, the remaining 90% of the stamped concrete looks pretty bad.  As others have mentioned, spraying is a very tedious process, and I don't want to harm the concrete.  I'd like to strip completely and re-stain/seal.  
    What product/process would you recommend?

      Sorry, but we do not carry the products that will fix this. We do have a stripper to remove the old sealer but it will not remove the stain and stamped concrete is stained internally and then a release stain is added on top. We do not carry those products.

    I have a stamped concrete patio; 10 years old, color was added to the concrete truck. I have been using H&C Concrete water based natural look sealer. I applied it most recently 2 years ago but areas, especially in the sun, have turned white and are cracking and flaking. What product will remove the old sealer and will it damage or change the stamped concrete color? What water based sealer you recommend after the old sealer is removed? Thank you

      That has an old sealer on them that has started to turn white or blush. You will have to strip this to fix it and then reseal with a better sealer.

    I'm having some "Speckling" occur with my concrete stain. I'm using H&C Infusion Semi-transparent stain. Do you have any recommendations or products that would help this?

    Have an 11 yr. old exterior, textured, stamped, brick red colored concrete walkway and patio. Medium foot traffic in some areas. Have not been resealed since put in. Is worn in areas. Located on the OR coast- mostly cool weather and freeze maybe 1 time a year. Lots of rain (90" a year). With this information, would you suggest the Super Seal 25 or 30? From reading the specs, the only difference between the 2, seems to be 25 is medium gloss and 30 is high gloss and also heavier in content. Please advise. Thank you! :-)

    Yes, either would work and the only difference is that the 30 is a little bit shinier than the 25.

    Hello, you cannot fix the white haze by adding more sealer. You need to chemically strip off all the old coatings first using this:

    I have a stained concrete patio. It is dark brown and in Texas. I have been applying Chem-Coat Premium Concrete Sealer (acrylic resins in solvent). After a few months in fades and turns white, especially in the hot summer. A new coat brings it back to life, but it fades again in a few months. Can I apply SuperSeal30 over this?

    Just clean it as long as the old sealer has not turned white or discolored.

    We have approx 150 sq ft concrete patio the was stamped,colored and sealed approx 6 years ago by a local company we found at a home show. They sold us on water based colors and sealer and it looked great. We live in Las Vegas and the sun has faded and discolored most of the patio except for a few protected/covered areas. We would like to have it power-washed and refinished and were considering using your "SuperSeal25 Semi-Gloss 5 Gallon" product. My question is do we need to acid wash the entire patio first or just clean it?

    You probably need to strip if the old sealer has turned white. Use the Brick Paver Sealer stripper we sell.

    I have stained stamped concrete about 5 years old. Was originally sealed with superseal 2000 then again 2 years ago. Now the areas in the sun are chalky and others not in the sun are still sealed wet look. I tried xylene and it didn't work on the chalky areas. Purchased 5 gal of superSeal 25 semi gloss. Need to know the best way to prep and seal. thanks, brad

    My pool concrete has never been stained before or water proofed. I would like to stain in a (not for sure the correct terminology) mixed looking stain. Not a solid color. Do you sell this and some tips on application.
