Question DetailsAsked on 5/19/2011

Coating on concrete driveway

This is not about paint but about my driveway coating. It has been coated and is gray and looks like a painted surface. Can I use Thompson Water seal for concrete driveways on this? It is concrete that was coated over.

Before you have any kind of seal put on your driveway, you need to know what kind of coating was used last, because certain kinds of coating don’t mesh well with sealer and it won’t hold. Once that’s figured out, make sure your driveway is power washed to get rid of the dirt and salts that accumulate over time. This might be the most important step, because if that gunk gets sealed in, your driveway can end up seriously damaged.
