  • Janis - Lakeville, MN

    With several "home improvement" projects on my list, I was frustrated by the number of contractors who wouldn't even call me back. Matt called me back the same day, and even stopped by my house on his way out to dinner to take a look at my job. He was courteous, asked the right questions, and developed creative solutions to both my driveway apron and my patio to greatly improve on the concrete we were replacing.

    MD Concrete started the job when they said they would, and completed it two days later. They even added a curve to my patio, making it much more inviting. I am delighted by the quality of their service and work.

concrete care tips

In the Spring, clean the concrete surface with a power wash or garden hose and broom to help remove loose debris and salts from the winter.  This will help maintain the natural color of the concrete and help against staining.  Re-sealing the concrete is a good option too.

During the Summer, periodic washing of the concrete surface with a power wash or garden hose and broom is a good idea.  This will help maintain the natural color of the concrete and help against staining.

Fall is an optimal time to re-seal concrete.  This will add a protective layer to aid against the elements as well as salt and de-icers that are commonly dragged on the concrete from highways and streets.

During the Winter, never use salt or de-icers.  This can cause scaling to the new concrete surface.  If traction is needed, loose sand should be used.

To remove oil stains, gently pour a solvent (eg. lacquer thinner) on a paper towel and blot the stain.  It’s not recommended to pour the solvent directly on the concrete because the sealer could be removed as well.  Our environment will also appreciate this.

For decorative concrete:  when shoveling snow, use a plastic bladed shovel.  This will help eliminate scratch marks that can occur on the concrete surface due to the sealer being marred.
