What Sealer is Best for Stamped Concrete Patios

Stamped Concrete Patios and Driveways are decorative surfaces that have become popular in the last 10 years or so. These surfaces utilize patterns and different colors to create a dramatic look to your landscaping. As with any exterior concrete surface, Stamped patios need to be maintained on a consistent basis.

Failure to maintain your Stamped Concrete will result in:

  • Color loss and discoloration
  • Pitting of the surface
  • Hairline cracks
  • Exposure to stains from spills

We suggest Solvent Based Acrylic Wet Look Sealers as the best type of sealer for your Stamped Concrete Patio. If possible, find a “Styrene” acrylic sealer as these sealers act as a Cure and Seal while minimizing the chance of a white haze.

Solvent Based Acrylic (Styrene) Sealers

These are durable, but breathable sealers for Stamped Concrete. Styrene sealers are high in acrylic solids and will darken the surface like wet with water while leaving a Matte or Gloss sheen. These sealers are less prone to trapping moisture which may lead to the dreaded white haze.

    I have colored stamped concrete around the pool and on sidewalk. I need to reseal this spring, what do you recommend that I can add shark grip to. Surface has been extremely slick in the past with sealing from professionals (even with shark grip). Most sealer is now gone, should shark grip be added to each coat of sealer? thanks Beth

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Hi Beth, you just need one coat. Look at Masonry Saver Decorative Concrete Sealer or Supre Seal 25. You should be able to add the grip into ot.

    I have a old stamped concrete patio that I reseal every 2-3 years. Previously used Crystal Clear. This year they suggested Diamond Clear. Is one better than the other?

  3. Mary says:

    I have a stamped concrete patio. Last year we hired someone to put a sealer on it to brighten it up. It bubbled all over

  4. joe says:

    Just had a new driveway poured…exposed aggregate with fiberglass reinforcing pellets….

    Super Diamond Clear and Diamond Clear and Luster Seal were all suggested, but reviews so far here on the first two arent that good and I cant find the last one anyways.

    I really dont WANT a super shiny appearance, and I don't want it to be slippery!

    So, what sealer can I use that will seal, stay looking good and stand up to driveway use and abuse like fluids , tires etc ?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      Do you want no shine or some shine? Supreme Shield SB-600 has a wet look but without the shine. Super Seal Matte has the wet look and a Matte shine.

      Hi Sherry, use the Concrete Sealer Stripper by Clemons and pressure washing. After full removal, do a final prep with the Clemons Concrete Cleaner Degreaser.

    I have a brand new stamped concrete farmers porch. When the contractor sealed it the first time it bubbled all over. He told me he would come back and reseal it, when he did so same thing happened bubbled all over. Once dry the bubbles flake off. Suggestion on how to fix this and what to use?

      You will need to chemically strip this off. Once removed, look at the Masonry Saver Decorative Concrete Sealer for this.

  13. Victor Sanchez says:

    Hello, I am looking at sealing my stamp concrete deck around my pool and the two brands that I have surface the most is Super Seal and Masonary Saver. I am not able to purchase the Super Sealer thanks to California being so strict with some products. I did find Masonary Saver available near me, but I want to add Shark Bite to this sealer and want to know if this is possible with this product. I have read in tow of your post that you can and another states you can not. Can you please shed some light on this question. My deck is colored stamp concrete and has never been sealed.

  14. Richard says:

    Hi could you recommend a solvent based acrylic (styrene) sealer for me to buy please? It's for my stamped concrete driveway that is due for a reseal.

  15. Crystal Clemence says:

    Hi….we just had a beautiful new stamped concrete patio put in off of our screened porch and our dog's claws are scratching through the sealer so we now have scratch marks. The sweeper at the bottom of our storm door has dulled that section of the patio too. The company we went through said they've never seen that before and pretty much threw their hands up. The sealant that used is Super Luster Shield. What can we do at this point?

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      I would call the manufacturer of this sealer and see what they suggest. It is not normal to have this happen.

  22. lawrence says:

    where can I purchase solvent based acrylic styrene sealer for a stamped patio?

  23. Hermie says:

    how can I remove the sealer from a new stamped concrete driveway? this sealer that was used left white deposits on practically 1000 sq ft of driveway. what will be the best solution to this problem? thanks

    • Concrete Sealer Help says:

      You will need to chemically strip with a concrete sealer stripper. Apply and pressure wash off. Repeat if need until all is removed. Not an easy process but can be done. We use a stripper made by Clemons Concrete Coatings.


      Did your project get wet 1/2 days after the Sealer was applied? Solvent based sealers can't have any moisture applied within the first day or so. White spots will appear , especially around or near control joints.

  24. Rae says:

    We bought a house with stamped cement sidewalk front and back and a large screened in patio. The sidewalk was put in about 9 yrs ago and I don't think it was ever resealed. It is a reddish color, looks faded and a whitish haze in places. I was wondering if it needs stripped before I reseal it. Also what would be the best sealant as I have no knowledge of what was used previously. I have pictures, but can't post them in this section.
