    Stamped sealer blotchiness

    I have a customer that applied his own sealer last year after using a neighbors power washer. Oops right. However i do not have any experience with sealing stamped concrete. I'm looking at super seal from opw in semi gloss but don't know if I can clean and seal over this or need to order some stripper and start over. In leaning towards the latter but thought some advice/confirmation would be nice. ThanksImage1461585508.658847.jpgImage1461585517.013597.jpgImage1461585525.078539.jpg

    Update: after reading here and on OPW I'm gonna try xylene over the white areas to see if I can even it out, do a test spot of SS25 to see if it adheres to this water based crap.

    If the sealer is not solvent based xylene will not do anything. As for going over a water based sealer with a solvent based it is not recommended.

    So I need to strip and re seal? Or reseal with a water based sealer?

    There are excellent water based sealers out there. I would re seal with water based.

    Not sure about the stain. How are you applying the sealer and what is your spread rate?

    Here are a before and after of a job I did this week using solvent based sealer. Feel free to give me a call with any questions 518-396-0972
