What you want to know about Pattern Imprinted Concrete Driveways.

What are common problems with driveways?

Pattern imprinted concrete driveway repairs are needed with:

  • Discolouration
  • Cracks
  • Broken off concrete
  • Maintenance access by utility companies



Occasionally a severe bout of frost can lift colour from a concrete area.

If this occurs it will normally be on a very small area.

An easy remedy for this is to mix a little colour surface hardener with water and apply to the area. It is important to also add some release powder (make sure this is also left by the installer) to try and blend the colour. This is necessary otherwise the colour contrast will be more noticeable. Once the area has dried apply a small amount of sealer and the repair is complete.

Ask your installer for some colour surface hardener and release powder when they install your driveway. Store this in an airtight container.

If you have an existing driveway with discolouration then you might be able to get some from your installer. Otherwise ask what solution your installer can offer.
