We have been providing the good people of Hamilton County with our concrete sealing services for around 10 years now (you can see what they are saying about us right here!). Tap on one of the buttons below to see how we can help transform your concrete!

Concrete Sealing

Concrete sealing is a form of protection for your concrete. Without it, the chances of it being damaged and generally worn from the elements are high. Not to mention, cracked and damage concrete is a safety issue for those walking on it.

What are the other benefits of concrete sealing?

  • It will ensure your concrete has a longer lifespan, preventing any aging or erosion.
  • It will make your surface much easier to clean and protect.
  • It keeps your concrete looking like-new!

How do we seal your concrete?

  • On the first day we come to your property, we will safely pressure wash your concrete and then will let it dry.
  • On day 2, we’ll come back and apply the concrete sealer that is appropriate for your surface. And voila! Your concrete will be properly sealed — and you don’t have to do a single thing!

Types Of Concrete

Sealing Exposed Aggregate Concrete

Exposed aggregate concrete is a decorative concrete look that will enhance the curb appeal of driveways, pool decks, sidewalks, and patios. It is achieved when the top layer of concrete has been removed to expose the rocks underneath.

A properly applied sealer will keep this finish in pristine condition, so the concrete doesn’t crumble or blemish over time. Sealers can be applied to new or existing surfaces and aren’t just pleasant to the eye. They can extend the life of the concrete by protecting the surface from harsh winter freeze-thaw cycles and hot 90-degree summer days. Sealers also can block ultra-violet rays that cause fading and inhibit the growth of mold and mildew.

We use a topical acrylic tinted honey brown exposed aggregate concrete sealer which preserves the concrete and enhances it with a high-gloss finish often referred to as the “wet look.” Eight out of 10 of our customers choose a honey brown-tinted high-gloss sealer for their exposed aggregate surfaces. It provides a semi-transparent brown tint that helps to bring out the natural characteristics of the aggregate.

The high-gloss coating is UV resistant and helps to reduce concrete dusting, staining, hot-tire pickup, mold, mildew, and efflorescence. The brown tint allows for a uniform look that darkens the exposed surface.

Another benefit of using an acrylic sealer is that it is topical. Instead of penetrating a 1/2 inch into the concrete, the sealer sits on top on the surface. It helps hold the aggregate pebbles in place, reduces pitting and extends the life of exposed aggregate concrete. Depending on weather and traffic, when using an acrylic sealer exposed aggregate concrete should be sealed every 12 to 36 months.

Sealing Broom Finish Concrete

There are three main types of sealers: topical, penetrating and integral.

Topical sealers are placed on the surface of the concrete and form a protective layer. These are good choices for both indoor and outdoor applications. Penetrating sealers actually penetrate the concrete and form a chemical barrier that shields against moisture. Integral sealers are added to the concrete mix before it leaves the plant. With integral sealers, you receive the same benefits of a topical sealer, but the sealing will start immediately.

No matter which type of concrete sealer you choose, you can read the following five benefits here!

1. Inhibits Mold

Concrete is porous, which means that it absorbs moisture. If this moisture doesn’t dry, it will create mold. Mold and mildew can form on concrete that is left wet for extended periods of time. This can cause a green discoloration to appear on your concrete surface. When you seal your concrete, you inhibit mold growth. This helps protect your concrete and keeps it looking better for longer.

2. Increases Durability

When exterior concrete is exposed to the elements, cracking, scaling, and other common concrete problems can occur. However, by sealing your concrete, you enhance the durability of the concrete, which can prevent damage. If you want to ensure that your concrete looks great and works properly, concrete sealer is a wise choice.

3. Extends Life

An average concrete driveway can last 25-30 years, but if it suffers from discoloration or cracking, you may find that you need to replace it sooner than you planned. Concrete sealers can increase the concrete’s longevity. When you seal your concrete, you increase the chance that your concrete lasts for those 25-30 years.

4. Offers Protection

There are many things out there that can damage your concrete, so it’s important to protect it. Sealer can protect your concrete from oil spills and other stains, as well as the sun’s harmful UV rays. Sealer will also lock out moisture, so freezing and thawing will not damage it.

5. Enhances Color

When concrete is exposed to the elements, it can become discolored. This can make your concrete application look dingy or old. Topical and integral sealers can keep your concrete’s color intact, as they will protect your concrete from the elements and keep it looking clean and sharp for an extended period of time.

Sealing Stamped Concrete

Whether you're having a beautiful new stamped concrete patio, walkway or pool deck poured or you already have one, it's important that you protect your investment. The right sealer will keep your stamped concrete looking great for many years, or rejuvenate an existing stamped surface. Sealing concrete can be compared to waxing your car, wearing sunscreen or spraying Scotchgard™ on your favorite shirt. A sealer will improve the appearance of stamped concrete, prevent fading caused by UV rays and protect it from stains and harmful chemicals.

Sealing after new concrete has cured and every few years for existing concrete is recommended. Stamped concrete that has been sealed will have a rich color and glossy sheen if desired. Sealers are available in many different gloss levels, ranging from no-gloss to high-gloss. A tinted sealer can even be used that will further enhance the concrete's color. Additionally, a sealer will help prevent efflorescence, which is a white powdery residue that can build-up on the surface. Slip-resistant sealers, which are especially useful around a pool, are also available, but may not be necessary since the concrete is already textured.

Protection against stains is another benefit of sealing stamped concrete. Your stamped patio, walkway or pool deck will be subjected to many things that can leave stains on the surface, chlorine, salt, chemicals, leaves, dirt, fertilizer, pet urine, and more. The right sealer will keep all of these from penetrating the surface of the concrete and leaving an unsightly stain.

If you live in a cold climate, a third reason for sealing your stamped concrete is that it will reduce the chance of freeze-thaw damage. Freeze-thaw damage can cause cracks or surface flaking and happens when water penetrates the concrete surface and then expands as it freezes. A sealer will keep water from sinking into your concrete. Water should bead up on the surface of the concrete if your sealer is doing its job. If this is not happening, it's time to reseal your stamped concrete. High traffic areas will likely need resealing on a frequent basis.

Applying a concrete sealer on outdoor concrete surfaces provides several important benefits:
  • Blocks the penetration of stains, oil, deicing chemicals and other contaminants.
  • Protects stamped concrete surfaces from abrasion and wear.
  • Easier to clean and maintain.
  • Reduces mold and organic growth.
  • Enriches the color intensity of stamped concrete, whether the color is integral or provided by a dry-shake hardener and antiquing release.
  • Adds sheen to the surface, ranging from satin to high gloss.
  • Adds resistance against freeze-thaw.
In summary, a sealer will enhance and protect your new or existing stamped concrete. When properly sealed and/or resealed the service life of concrete is greatly extended. Make sure that the contractor you hire seals your patio, walkway or pool deck with the appropriate product and at the appropriate time. Experts recommend using a penetrating or film-forming sealer outdoors and selecting a more natural, matte finish. Keep in mind that it is very important that sealers used on exterior concrete allow both air and moisture to pass through. With new stamped concrete, a sealer should be applied after curing.

Needless to say, protecting your stamped surface by resealing the concrete should not be ignored!
