    Hi,

    after some advice. I have a terracotta imprinted concrete driveway and would like to alter the colour to grey if possible. I've spoken with a couple of companies - one says that it is not recommended as it might damage the drive, the other says it is fine through use of a solvent based stripped (solstrip) then applying a solid colour stain then sealing. Just wondered if anyone had experience doing this ?

    thanks for your help.

    Hi, I posted this a year ago. Still looking to try and do this if possible.

    This is one reply I got:

    Can I change the colour of my imprinted concrete driveway?

    Hello, I have an imprinted concrete driveway in terracotta. Is it possible to change the colour with one of your stain products

    Yes it is totally possible to change the colour of your concrete.

    You would first need to remove the old sealer using the Stripping solution (link below), then apply the Solid colour stain. If you want to just have it one colour then you can finish here by applying a sealer over the top.

    If you are looking to give it the 2 tone look then Imprint should have you can apply a diluted coat of the smartcolour (a darker colour), allow to dry and then seal.

    The other one was from 'smartseal' who said it was not recommended as it may damage the drive.


    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
