Why Concrete Needs To Be Sealed
One of the many reasons concrete is so widely used as a building material is due to its strength and durability. On the other hand, concrete because of its porous nature is able to absorb water and soluble salts, which may cause damage over time. In addition, concrete in the northern region of the country is subject to extreme weather conditions and salt usage, as well as many frozen-thawed cycles, all of which translate into damage to concrete. A driveway, patio, or walkway made of poured concrete that is not sealed properly is at risk of having the following problems:
- Excessive pitting and pop-outs
- Flaking and Spalling
- Life of concrete greatly reduced
How We Professionally Seal Concrete
- Power Wash – The concrete slabs will be extensively pressure washed prior to the application of a sealer to remove dirt and grime and to allow the sealer to penetrate deeply into each pore and effectively strengthen the concrete.
- Apply Sealer – The surface is then sprayed with the penetrating sealer, ensuring that the surface is covered to ensure that it is totally covered, and is also penetrated to a deeper level.
- Enjoy! – Having dried your freshly cleaned and protected concrete for at least 6 hours, you can begin reusing it.
Beware Not All Sealing Are Made Equal
There are a lot of sealers sold in home improvement stores that are acrylic sealers, which form a film on the surface, but then wear off after a year or two due to the weather conditions. The problem with these types of sealants is they have a lower cost, but they are not as effective as penetrating sealers. There are many situations in which concrete sealers are not able to safeguard your concrete against salt and other chemicals. Sealing the surface of fresh concrete effectively penetrates the pores of the concrete, which will give you maximum protection for a long period of time.
