A concrete wall is like an empty canvas. You have the opportunity to transform it into a beautiful work of art.
When you think of concrete walls, what typically comes to mind are images of plain, grey and drab-looking surfaces. But when you add colour to the equation, the walls will look far from dull or boring.
Painting your concrete walls can freshen up the look and add a bit of interest to your home. A coloured concrete wall will make your house more beautiful and inviting. It will not only enhance the aesthetics of your home, but also improve the value of your property.

• Seal – Once a concrete paint or stain is applied to old concrete, concrete sealer is usually applied to lock in the colour and provide additional protection to the surface. However, sealers may wear over time. Thus, experts advise to re-seal coloured or stained concrete 12 months after the initial application, and then periodically, at least every 24 months, to make sure your concrete lasts for more years to come. Concrete sealing protects surfaces from chemicals, harsh elements, abrasion and UV exposure by closing or decreasing its porosity. Before applying concrete sealer, make sure the surface has been cleaned, dried and prepared properly to ensure effective sealing.
• Maintain – Aside from the necessary cleaning and maintenance practices one should apply to their painted concrete walls, there are also other basic steps homeowners need to take to make sure coloured concrete surfaces look great all year round. Some concrete surfaces are damaged, cracked and porous that no type of paint will stick to them properly. In these situations, you may want to opt for a concrete stain rather than an actual paint. Just like wood stains, concrete stains work by seeping into the surface and changing its colour. However, applying a concrete stain can be a little complicated, so it’s best left to the professionals like us here at Pridal Services, one of the leading painting services in Adelaide.
