While it is most likely too cold to pour concrete in winter, Michigan is unpredictable. We do get short warm periods where pouring concrete is possible. The concrete will take longer to cure than on a nice summer day though. The thing you have to worry about in Winter is taking care of your stamped concrete surface.
Seal Your Stamped Decorative Concrete for Winter
The winter months can be harsh on stamped concrete surfaces. However, there are a few simple ways that you can help your concrete survive the winter. The Constant freezing and thawing of water during winter can damage your stamped concrete. A great way to protect your surface is to apply a sealant to it. On a warmer day, your local concrete experts can clean your stamped concrete and seal it. The sealant will protect your driveway, patio, porch, or walkway from the harsh elements.
Other Ways to Care for Stamped Concrete in Winter
There are other ways to take care of your stamped concrete during the winter months. Make sure to stay on top of snow removal. The less snow and ice on your surface the better. Snow and ice build-up can wreak havoc on your stamped concrete patio, driveway, or walkway. It is best to clear away as much snow as you can. Avoid using salt as much as possible on your stamped concrete surface as well. It will add to the freezing and thawing cycle that can damage your surface. Both of these methods work well and will work even better on a sealed surface.
