    How soon to seal stamped concrete

    Our concrete contractor wants to pour and stamp our concrete and then come back the next day and seal. I think this is way too soon since the concrete is still curing. I know they want to do the saw cuts the following day also, which is fine with me.

    Anyone have any thoughts? I know that most people recommend a sealer that has 20% or less solids in it.

    Any concrete contractors that have poured stamped decks in my area seal the next day. They also recommend sealing it once a year.

    My last stamped concrete deck was saw cut and sealed the following day.
    A second coat of sealer was applied a week later.
    The first coat got consumed by the new concrete almost entirely.

    Try to negotiate 2 coats of sealer if you can.
    A non-slip additive will help keep the little ones from slipping on the sealed stamped concrete too.
