Will be sealed and clear coated, regularly, recommended by manf. Or as often as I remember.

[QUOTE=CHAIN_DOGG;89204][QUOTE=ssduane;89191]poured two samples yesterday, one untinted, one tinted with a "buff" color. Will let them sit up for a week or so. Ordered a polisher yesterday and will attempt to sand/polish them and then stain to see what we like.

I say the Buff.......Start a poll on the color after you polish
Will do, but I'm sure you just like saying buff.

After you stain and seal it, a good coat of wax will help maintain it.
We have stained concrete floors in our guestroom and love it.

How do you keep one area of the cement top from drying differently than the rest so you don't have "blotches"? Is the tinted cement being applied to cement board?

should dry the same, since trowling should get the mix even. I'll have to keep a tarp up over it for shade and plastic over the top to keep moisture in for even drying. As for the base material, I've seen wonder board and plywood used underneath. I'm leaning on using 5/8 pressure treated plywood as the base material

Besides, variations in the color add character to the concrete, otherwise you could just paint it. Throw some flower stencils on it. Purty....

I was over at my buddy's house today, and he offered a couple of insights. when he first completed his BBQ, he sealed the brick using Thompson's Water Seal, and in approx 2 years, it turned from clear to an ugly flaking, foggy, worst looking water spots sort of finish on earth.
He talked to couple of landscaping contractors, and separately, they both suggested using "Glaze N Seal Concrete and Masonry Lacquer". It leaves a wet look, and has now been through 4 summers, and still looking like new.

not sure if we want the wet look or not, but we have RCP right up the street and the guys there are great for info www.rcpblock.com, so will probably use what the recommend.

here are the samples,
straight concrete, hit with a 50grit disc to break the sand off, four colors, we don't care for any of these.


next sample has the home depot liquid "buff" color mixed in and the samples. to the right I hit the concrete with a concrete grinder and wet ground the concrete to break the top then 50 grit, left is just sanded with 50 grit. We like the La Paz or the Buff stain, leanig more towards the La Paz.
