If you are having us install a concrete driveway for you, one of the options that you should consider is having us also seal your concrete driveway. While your concrete, itself, is the substance that your sidewalk is made out of, a seal coat is a very thin surrounding layer that protects that internal substance. These two things, working together in tandem, will help to expand the life of your driveway for as long as possible. Let us install a seal coating for you today and protect that driveway!
Concrete sealing is the act of applying a sealant to your finished concrete driveway. While you don’t necessarily need a seal coat applied, not having one can lead to future issues that will eventually cost more money. A seal coat protects your concrete, while strengthening it at the same time. Having a proper seal coat laid down means that your concrete will age less quickly and will, most likely, need to be repaired or replaced less often. Seal coating is a quick and easy solution to extend the life of your concrete. Let us come and seal coat your driveway today.
Benefits of Sealing
Sealing concrete is a great option for your driveway health. Having a seal coat applied strengthens the entire driveway system. A seal coat helps to block weather, especially water, from hurting the driveway system. A seal coat can also help to reflect and dispel harmful UV rays that can damage your concrete. Seal coating can also protect the top layer of your concrete from traffic and tired wear. Another great thing about a seal coat is that it can easily be redone when, and if, it is needed. Concrete driveway sealing is a fantastic option to protect your investment.
The cost effectiveness of seal coating, versus resurfacing or reinstalling a driveway is great. A seal coating is cheap and very quick to install and it will protect your concrete for years to come. If you don’t have a seal coat installed, the odds are that your concrete surface will start to age, fade and chip away. This can lead to having to have a more costly resealing done. In some extreme cases, damage to your unsealed concrete can also result in having to have entire sections of your driveway replaced. For this reason, having your concrete sealed is one of the most cost effective options you have.
Once your concrete is properly sealed, caring for it is very easy. In warmer months, your concrete can simply be sprayed off with a hose; removing dirt and built up grime. If the dirt is caked on, a gentle cleaning solution can be used. If you are in months where leaves are falling or a storm has brought debris to your driveway, use a stiff bristled broom to sweep your concrete clean. Proper care for your concrete sealing can extend the life of both, your actual driveway, and the seal coat.
