Sealing Concrete Patios, Driveways, Walkways, Pool Decks – DIY?​

Thursday, July 27

Sealing your concrete driveway, walkway, patio, or pool deck is essential to maintain it and protect it against natural elements. Without proper sealant your concrete will begin to deteriorate over time. Sealants play a crucial role in protecting and preserving the concrete surface, and without them, the concrete is more vulnerable to the following issues:

  • Moisture Absorption
  • Stains
  • Freeze-Thaw Damage
  • Chemical Attack
  • UV Damage
  • Dust and Efflorescence
  • Abrasion
  • Mold and Mildew Growth
  • Lack of Durability

Applying a suitable sealant to the concrete surface can help mitigate these issues and extend the life of the concrete, improving its appearance and overall performance.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of concrete sealers depends on the type of sealant used, the application method, and the specific requirements of the project. Different sealants offer various benefits, and the choice of sealer should be based on the intended use of the concrete surface and the environmental conditions it will be exposed to.

However, there are common mistakes people make when sealing their own concrete:

  • Insufficient surface preparation
  • Applying sealer to damp or wet concrete
  • Over-application of sealer
  • Applying sealer in direct sunlight
  • Not testing the sealer on a small area first
  • Ignoring the curing time
  • Using the wrong type of sealer
  • Failure to maintain the sealer
  • Ignoring weather conditions
  • Not wearing appropriate protective gear

To avoid these mistakes and achieve the best results, consider seeking advice from professionals or experts in concrete sealing.

Hiring Professionals for Concrete Sealing

Our professionals are not only experts in doing this type of work, but they come with many additional advantages as well. First, they understand what all needs to be done to seal your concrete. From fixing cracks and trouble spots to understanding the best sealers for the job, they can give you the advice you need to make a lasting impression on your floor.

For example, we will know how to fix damaged concrete without having to replace the whole slab. Additionally, we will be able to treat it properly to create the best adhesion of the sealer, which ensures an even and durable coat.
