A freshly poured driveway or patio looks great, but without proper care it begins to deteriorate. Sealing your concrete surface helps protect and maintain your investment. Here are a few reasons why using a sealer is important.
Improve the Appearance of a Driveway Poured by a Calgary Concrete Company
Whether your driveway or patio is plain, coloured, or stamped, applying a sealer after it has cured and again every few years can improve its appearance and reduce fading. A sealer applied by a Calgary concrete contractor can be used to provide a glossy sheen, enhance the colour, or increase slip resistance.
Protect Your Concrete Slab from Stains
Stain protection is another benefit of sealing the slab poured by a Calgary concrete contractor. Patios, driveways, and pathways experience frequent use and are subject to many things that can cause staining. Leaves, oil, fertilizer, dirt, and spilled drinks are just a few of the things that can leave an unsightly mark on the slab. A sealer helps keep these things from penetrating the surface and leaving a stain.
Reduce Freeze Thaw Damage to Your Patio
When water penetrates the surface of your patio or driveway and then freezes, it expands. This causes cracks or surface flaking known as freeze thaw damage. Having a Calgary concrete company apply a sealer helps protect against this damage by not allowing water to penetrate the surface. If water beads on the surface of your slab, you know the sealer is working. When the water no longer beads on the surface, it’s time to contact a Calgary concrete contractor and reapply the sealer.
Whether you have a driveway or patio already or are ready to get one, a Calgary concrete company can help you make the most of your investment. Enhance and protect your concrete by applying a sealer after it cures and reapplying as needed.
