To Use Sealer Or Not To Use Sealer?
Concrete is one of your home’s biggest investments.
Concrete can bring great curb appeal and value, but can decrease the value if the concrete is not maintained and sealed properly. Concrete surfaces have to be protected to perform well. A concrete driveway can last for years without being sealed, however, once the concrete starts to deteriorate, it can be too late to save the concrete. Sealing concrete is simple and can be done by the homeowner or a concrete contractor.
Here are some benefits for sealing and maintaining your concrete:
- Concrete adds value to your home
- Sealing improves the appearance and curb appeal to your concrete
- Sealing increases the concrete’s longevity
- Sealing reduces spalling, flaking and cracking of concrete
- Sealing protects your concrete form oil spills and other stains
- Sealing makes your concrete mold and mildew resistant
Not sealing your concrete can have negative effects:
Oxidation from the sun can begin to break down the concrete, resulting in chips or flakes from the top surface of the concrete causing the concrete to age more quickly. Concrete is also affected in colder environments. Moisture penetrates through the concrete and freeze and thaw continuously causing the concrete to shift, crack and possibly buckle. Rust stains are more difficult to remove from unsealed concrete. Mold and Mildew can buildup on concrete that has not been sealed.
