How To Seal Your Concrete

Once you have completed your beautiful pool deck, your walkway and your concrete patio and you want your investment to last for a long time. You can make your stamped concrete last longer by using the right sealer and if done right, your investment can last for many years. When concrete is sealed, it is like spraying clothing guard on your shirt, applying sunscreen on your skin or applying wax to your car. Aside from protecting your concrete structure, the sealer improves its look, protects it from UV and harmful chemicals and even stains. These are the reasons why you need to seal your stamped concrete.

Use of sealers

Sealing of cured concrete has become a must in the past years. When sealed properly, it will have a bright color and a glossy finish. There are many kinds of sealer depending on the gloss level. You can choose the no-gloss sealer, the high-gloss sealer and somewhere in between. You can even try to use the tinted sealer which enhances your concrete’s color even better. There are times that the concrete will show signs of efflorescence which forms white powder on top of the concrete’s surface. There are also sealers that are slip resistant but if the concrete is already textured, there is no need for this type of sealer.

Benefits of sealing your concrete

The Concrete Sealing Process

The Concrete Sealing Process

Your concrete can have other benefits when you seal it. It is protected from stains. Your pool deck, walkway or even your patio will be subjected to drink spills and food droppings and this can leave stains on the surface. Your concrete will also be exposed to pet urine, fertilizer, dirt, leaves, chemicals, salt and chlorine. When you have a good sealing on your concrete, the above chemicals won’t penetrate the concrete and will prevent stains.

Structures that are in a cold climate could be affected by freeze thaw damage. When not treated, this can cause the surface to flake and can even cause cracks. This occurs because water penetrates the surface and can freeze when the temperature is freezing. The sealer will keep the water from penetrating your concrete. A good sign that your sealer is working would be beads of water forming on the surface of your concrete. When you don’t see beads, it is a sign that you need to apply the sealing again. Concrete that are exposed to rain frequently may also need to be resealed regularly.
