    SWCG and stamped concrete

    Getting ready to install a SWCG. Should I be concerned with the SWCG damaging my stamped concrete decking?? Is the issue mostly with natural stone?? Thanks.

    Concrete is fine. Issues come up only with softer varieties of natural stone.

    HI Donny,
    no worries with your concrete. The issue is mainly with soft natural stone.

    Mike I replied. I will see if I could post a few pics. Update: I cant figure out how to erase the 5 pics I already have in the file manager ?? It will not allow me to post more pics.

    Re: SWCG and stamped concrete

    Thanks Mike. I should also mention a very important detail. My concrete installer added a very fine "grit" to the sealer which helps with traction. I have had no issues with the deck being slippery. Good Luck.
