Many homeowners are aware that they need to seal their wood decks, fences and siding to reduce damage and discoloration from the elements such as ice, rain, and the bleaching effects of the sun. However, many do not realize that they should also be sealing their exposed concrete slabs for the same reasons.
Your home is an investment, and maintaining its beauty and durability can be as simple as spending a few hours of your time, and a couple of bucks on the right solutions. Some minor maintenance now can save you big money in replacement and repair in the future.
Why Should You Seal Concrete?
We’ve all seen broken, chipped, and cracked concrete sidewalks, basements and driveways. It’s all a result of concrete’s natural nemesis… water. As water and moisture enters the cracks, fissures and capillaries, alternating warm and cold temperatures can cause the water to expand and contract ultimately affecting the integrity of the concrete.
And, we’re not just talking about water in the form of liquid or ice. The amount of water in the air – humidity – can also have a negative affect on concrete.
In addition to elemental hazards, sealing your concrete also protects it from dirt, oil, grease, chemicals, and stains that can hamper its appearance and make it difficult to clean.
Simply put, concrete sealing protects your concrete surfaces, improves its luster and shine, and boosts the longevity of your concrete surfaces.
