The Advantages of Concrete Sealing!

The advantages of concrete sealing are ample.  A quality concrete sealer will ensure your concrete is resistant to weather exposure, water, grease and oil stains and marks and abrasions.  What’s more, it brings out the natural beauty of your concrete and makes cleaning effortless.

 

A sealer is applied to concrete to protect it from damage, corrosion and staining.  It forms an nonporous layer which prevents such materials from passing.  A high quality sealer will block up to 99% of moisture.
The obvious main benefit of concrete sealing is to extend the life of your concrete and keep it looking superb.  Here are some other great benefits:

 

  • Increases the concretes longevity
  • Improves appearance
  • Adds to your home of businesses value
  • It is inexpensive and easy to do
  • Reduces flaking and cracking
  • Protection for oil spills and other stains
  • Mold and mildew resistant

 

Aside from the benefits of sealing concrete, there are negative effects that occur when concrete is not sealed.  Like anything else that is repeatedly subjected to the elements, concrete can begin to fail prematurely.

 

Choosing which sealer to use is a mixture of aesthetics and performance, along with what you are willing to pay to obtain that performance.   Keep in mind that choosing the right sealer, along with having it professionally installed will extend the life of your concrete and keep it looking magnificent for years to come.

Concrete is a significant investment and is constantly under attack from the elements.  With proper care and a quality sealer, your concrete will live a long and fruitful life.  Preserving and protecting your valuable asset will save you time, money and headaches in the future.

 

Whether your surface is plain concrete, coloured concrete or stamped concrete, applying sealer after the slab has cured as well as every few years is recommended as part of the maintenance plan.  Sealed concrete will have a rich colour and also a glossy sheen if desired.  You can also select a tinted sealer, that will further enhance the look of your concrete.

 

Another reason for concrete sealing is to reduce the chance of freezing damage during our near zero temperatures caused by the Australian winter.  Freezing damage causes cracks or surface flaking.  This occurs when water penetrates the surface of the concrete and then expands as it freezes.  A sealer will keep water from sinking into the concrete.  You can tell when your sealer is working because water beads on the surface.  When this no longer happens it’s time to reseal your concrete.  High traffic areas of your concrete may need resealing on a more frequent basis.

 

To summarise, a concrete sealer will enhance and protect your concrete.  When properly sealed and resealed, the life of your concrete is greatly increased.  Ultimate Seal can seal your concrete with the highest quality sealer available, therefore saving you money by protecting your investment.
