Where do you need concrete sealing experts?
Concrete is a great building material as it’s so versatile, it can be used just about anywhere! However, to get the most out of your concrete, it does need to be sealed. Read on for more information.
Concrete needs to be sealed as it is a porous building material. Sealing the concrete means that water cannot penetrate through it and it also protects the concrete against staining and wearing. There are two different types of sealers – a coating type of sealer or a penetrating sealer. Coating sealers when applied dry to create an impervious film on the top of the concrete. Coating sealers may need to be reapplied every few years. Penetrating sealers actually bond with the concrete and create a permanent seal, so they do not need to be reapplied.
Some concrete sealers can create a decorative effect on the concrete and they can even improve the slip resistance of the concrete, making it safer. All concrete products can be sealed – flooring, paving, pools, benchtops, and walls and so on.
It is best to have your concrete sealed by a professional such as a concretor, a floor coating specialist, a concrete cleaner, a handyman and so on. They will ensure that the sealer is applied evenly and that the concrete is totally protected. You can have the concrete sealed at the time of laying or you can seal or reseal existing concrete. Ensure that your professional is experienced with and is adequately qualified to work with concrete sealers. They should be willing to give you an obligation free quote before any work begins.
