Our team at SA Paramount Co. Inc., works extensively with concrete, and we know how to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Although concrete is highly durable on its own, it is vulnerable to water damage without the proper sealing. In this article, our team will go over some key information you need to know about concrete sealing.
- Why Concrete Sealing Is Necessary – First, allow us to explain why you should seal your concrete in the first place. Although concrete feels hard and solid, the material is porous, which means it contains countless tiny holes that leave it vulnerable to water damage. Sealing the concrete plugs up these holes and prevents water from penetrating the material, protecting it from water damage.
- When Concrete Sealing Should Be Done – In general, you should get your concrete sealed when it is first installed—good concrete companies will provide sealing services as part of new concrete installation. The initial application of sealant should last between one and three years, so you will need to schedule additional concrete sealing services periodically after that.
- Types of Concrete Sealers – When you turn to our team for concrete sealing services, you can count on us to help you select the right type of sealant for your needs. We offer multiple options, including acrylic sealers (which tend to be the most affordable choice) and penetrating sealers (which are more expensive but also more long-lasting). No matter which option you choose, we’ll provide the expert sealing services you need, making sure you get complete, even coverage.
