Concrete Sealing Services Denver
According to many experts, property owners make the common mistake of not maintaining their concrete driveways, walkways or concrete patios. Denver concrete sealing services are something that really aren’t offered by too many companies either. According to the Chicago Tribune “some owners of concrete driveways don’t seal them at all.” They go on to say that “concrete driveways should be sealed every four or five years to protect them from water penetration and to prolong their life.”
Should I Seal My Concrete Driveway?
Almost every single project that we visit, the existing concrete has never been treated or sealed around 85% of the time. When our concrete experts talk with customers about concrete maintenance they often get an odd look and most definitely questions about why or what it would take to maintain concrete. Most property owners do not realize that concrete even needs to be maintained. As a matter of fact, I can recall many times where prospective customers asked, "concrete needs to be maintained?" The answer to this is undoubtedly "YES".
Sealing your concrete regularly improves the life of your concrete installation as well as enhances the look of your concrete. Concrete is a naturally porous surface and will take on whatever precipitation or other fluids that it encounters. Sealing your concrete helps prevent foreign substances from entering the concrete. The importance of this is in freezing weather most definitely. However, other foreign substances than water are also harmful to concrete. For example the magnesium chloride that is used on the streets here in Denver during winter to help mitigate the streets and assist with snow removal. that magnesium chloride is of course tracked in on any vehicle that parks on your driveway or drives on the driveway to get to the garage. Snow removal agents or deicing agents definitely we can be integrity of the concrete as they soak into your driveway, walkway or concrete patio.
So, if you are considering re-sealing your concrete patio or driveway, the team at Denver Concrete Inc would definitely recommend this treatment in order to maintain the look and feel of your concrete and prolong the life of your concrete driveway, walkway or patio.
Sealing Your Concrete Driveway
The first step in maintaining your concrete driveway, even before sealing is to keep the driveway clean. Maintaining the surface of your driveway by routinely sweeping and washing (with simple garden hose) help keep the surface free of debris that causes stains and variations in the finish of your driveway. After thoroughly cleaning the driveway, you will want to patch cracks and holes in the surface of the concrete. If your driveway is spalling this is a good time to consider a concrete overlay. You can learn more about concrete resurfacing or concrete overlay services here.
After you have cleaned the driveway, patched the cracks with either a sealer or patch and allowed the appropriate time to cure, it is time to apply your sealer. Depending on the sealer, application will vary. Here in Denver, we recommend a permeable sealer for natural traditional concrete. There are permeable sealers that help protect against harsh chemicals (magnesium chloride for example) as well as protects against moisture.
For more information on the sealers we use, make sure to visit our products page. Denver Concrete Inc does not recommend using products from Home Depot, Lowes or any local hardware store for your concrete maintenance. Major outlets tend to carry more “generic” like product in our experience and we would not use these types of products on any job that we complete. This is exactly why we invested so much time into creating our products page. These are the products that we have personal experience using on the job. We know that the vendors and manufacturers of these products offer service and warranties unlike anyone else in the industry.
