Why Seal Your Driveway?

While concrete is one of the most useful building materials used today, it is vulnerable and should be protected. Concrete sealants can increase the strength, longevity and aesthetic properties of your driveway for years to come.

 

The main weakness of concrete lies in the fact that it is porous, similar to a sponge. It absorbs liquids in small amounts on the surface that can cause damage in a number of ways. If it is a solvent (like maybe acid or deicer) it can rapidly wear away the concrete and cause pitting or surface deterioration, while also compromising the structural integrity of the entire substrate.

 

Water also causes an issue. When water freezes, the molecules expand and push against the walls of the microscopic pores. As a result, micro cracks can form and begin to expand and spread across the surface of the concrete. These micro cracks can continue to expand and become visible surface cracks that will be unsightly and weaken your concrete.

 

There are many different types of sealants so it is important to choose wisely. Generally speaking, most experts recommend avoiding short service life petroleum-based sealants that create a film on the surface and need to be reapplied often. Instead, Lithium-based deep penetrating sealers offer the best long-term protection.

 

Properly sealing concrete when it is still undamaged is critical for maintaining a healthy, unblemished driveway. This enhances the value and appearance of your property.

 

It is wizer to protect it now than replace it later!
